First off I have to disclose that I am a Starwood Vacation Owner/Vistana. My husband had "won" a two bedroom - one week gift certificate to stay at any Embarc property. We had originally booked for Mexico (two bedroom) but had to cancel and re-booked for Whistler (one bedroom). Being from Vancouver, we go to Whistler quite often and usually...

We exchanged for a week here in a one bedroom room. The room was nice. The decor was appropriate and nice. The best part of the room was the bathroom. There is enough space for everything you need. My only complaint is the shower. There is no shower door, so water gets out. The kitchen was useful and worked. The...

We have been using our Whistler time share for the past 16 years. We watched our girls grow up learning to ski and snowboard here. They loved all the amenities of the club. Now they are in college and high school but love to return.

We first visited this timeshare location in 1998 and have stayed many times (when it was Club Intrawest). This was our first visit in 4 years and it has since been acquired by Diamond Resorts and renamed. We were hoping with the Diamond brand behind it we would see some updating (see my past reviews). Maybe as time goes on...

As a resort, this place is a little tired compared to the Fairmont, but good location in the upper village. However, I would stay well away as they are a timeshare trap. When the resort was owned by intrawest they use to have people wandering the Whistler resort areas trying to entice people to buy in. Speaking from our own...

We're Embarc Resort owner/members, so, I'm probably a bit biased here. But, we love Embarc Whistler. Great location, well appointed and very functional rooms, and a great staff. In particular, the concierge staff is outstanding.

Fantastic timeshare exchange. Rooms were spacious and updated nicely. Staff at the resort were very friendly. Ski lockers and parking were very convenient. Would definitely stay here again. 3 minute walk to wizard express chair

We have been members for some time and always enjoy our Whistler trips and the luxurious accommodation at Embarc which was formerly Intrawest. We stay in a 2 bedroom apartment which has a well appointed kitchen, a lounge and dining as well as 2 bedrooms both with ensuites. The master has a large spa bath as well. Within the grounds...

I visited this hotel during the winter and I had a great experience there. The rooms were very big and comfortable. The only thing bad about the rooms are that it is a little bit too dark. This resort had an excellent pool. It was warm and had a slide, which was a lot of fun. There was a shuttle...

We stayed for 4 days over Thanksgiving with family from Chilliwack. Two families with little ones and we had a blast! Heated outdoor pool with water slide was a hit with the kids! Walking proximity to everything in the village. Well worth it!
