Stayed here through the Armed Forces Vacation Club. Abundant wildlife; right in the community we saw mule deer, wild turkey, fox, and a herd of elk. On top of a mountain with absolutely fantastic view of the valley and lots of room for walking. Friendly, helpful staff. My only real complaint is the fitness room, which consisted of one treadmill...

The view is spectacular. The staff was friendly and helpful. The unit is large but the 1970s called and wants their interior back. Everything worked but is showing it's age. The owners need to spend some money and update their investment. There is a lot to do and see in this area or you can just sit back and relax...

We got this place for a song as a "bonus week" from our exchange club, but I would been quite happy had we exchanged our timeshare week for this stay. We were in unit #701, so the comments about our accommodations are limited to that one. The master BR has a king (big plus!), while the two other BRs each...

This resort is TERRIBLE! Outdated, poorly maintained, dirty, filthy, and unsafe. Bedding was dirty. We had to wash it. Water leak in the ceiling. Balcony looked unsafe. Floor boards looked like it would give if walked on. Kitchen drawer fell out when pulled. Cabinets hanging off. Spiders in the unit. Dishes were dirty. This is the worst Resort I've stayed...

We spent 4 nights here using our timshare points. The staff and manager were very friendly. Check in was smooth. They also provided us with information on the area. Units were very dirty, and a lot of it had not been cleaned. The worst was the black mold growing on the shower room ceiling. I did tell the front desk,...

The condo itself is a bit dated. It kind of took me back to my days growing up. 80's furniture and appliances but it worked ok for us. We were there to see the All American Futurity....we had towels, shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, utensils, dishes, pots. Overall the staff was super nice and we aren't very picky. The place was...

Do not go to this disgusting place, it is filled with huge nasty spider webs, the furniture and appliances are very old and broken down and the staff is rude and unprofessional. The condo was very dirty and smelled bad, one of the toilets did not have running water and we had to fix it ourselves. There was dirt everywhere...

We stayed here three nights on our way to El Paso, Texas. We had stayed here about twenty years ago and this was available for the time we needed it. We stayed in a three bedroom, two bath unit. The management is currently updating the units, replacing flooring and redoing the bathrooms and decking. The unit was comfortable, but the...

Full of spiders, filthy, old, my skin is crawling and we are leaving as soon as our kids wake up. My husband is so upset and this was supposed to be a nice vacation with my his parents for our kids birthdays. The only thing worth the stay is the company we are with we rate it 0.00
