Our room was the smaller guest suite yet had all of the amenities we needed for the week! Our balcony looked out over the golf course and mountains, every evening the sunset was breathtaking. During the...

We stayed here last week with friends that owned a time share and we stayed in a two bedroom unit. On check in, Nathan at the front desk was very friendly, informative and got us into the unit before 1 p.m., even though check in was suppose to be 3 p.m. The unit was very large with the bigger portion...

We had a one bedroom villa overlooking the golf course. They planned the property well so I don't think any of the rooms have a bad view. Villa was very large and well furnished. There are a few pools, one adult only. The main pools were full of families and kids so if you are looking for quieter, check out...

We had a lock-off with 2 dbl beds at this property. The only reason I don't give it a 5* is because all the lock-offs have views of the parking lots, unless you are lucky enough to get an end unit.
