Looking to book only 2 nights with daughter, SIL and two children 12 and 8. I have been to Crystal Shores in Marco and liked it and know the beach is beautiful. I have never been to Singer Island and thought this might be nice. Which has the best pool and beach, things for families?
TIA

Why not switch things up if you have been to Crystal Shores before. Of the 2 Singer Island MVC's, Ocean Pointe would have the best facilities for a family. Oceana Palms is very nice, but its more like a hotel than a traditional timeshare resort....set on a very small footprint. The Ocean Pointe footprint is large with lots to do for kids. Just request not to be put in the Kingfish building which is separate from the rest.

I agree with Fasttr since you've said you've been to Crystal Shores. Switch it up. We rarely ever go to the same place twice. We may in the future after we've visited most of the properties. Personally, we loved Crystal Shores, I can see going back there one day. One of our favorites. As a kid, my parents took us on a vacation every year, and we never went to the same place twice. I love those memories, I will never forget. Best times.

Thank you both!
Ill have to make sure they have something open still the week my daughter flies down this April.
Steve, we have taken the kids to Hawaii and St Kitts and my son and gf to Aruba. We love making memories with the kids and grandchildren!
Im hoping to get Surf Club for next April, the last week but it never seems to be available by the time I am able to book hence Hawaii and St. Kitts the last two vacations (which were fantastic,).
We are not skiers or cold weather people so prefer warmer weather vacations.
Looking forward to seeing if Wyndham has any good timeshares worth trying. I know St John is beautiful!
