    Nice resort. Also great MTB trails. Value was good due to Discovery Vitality membership. Beautiful views. Great location. However the military-type enforced table seating arrangements during breakfast/lunch/supper was frustrating.

    I'd say you'd need to hire a car and drive. Or call the resort and ask if they can arrange a transfer for you.
