I am looking for a week in January, and there is a 2BR available at Westgate Villas for $347/wk plus tax.
I know all of the horror stories about Westgate ownership, but it is rated gold with II, and if I avoid any sales pitches, I am thinking it will be a nice place to spend a week, with 2 grandchildren.
Thoughts?

If this is Westgate Vacation Villas, be aware that most buildings have stairs. This matters a lot to me so I call and request ground floor a couple of weeks before check in. Just stayed in a newer building and they have elevators. At checkin, when told they were putting me in elevator building, I requested and got a firework view.

As far as the resort, every one has enjoyed it but extra charge or sales pitch required for most amenities, like water park and mini golf.

Thank you.
Stairs will make a difference.
