Property was recently acquired by Diamond Resorts. It is a typical Diamond property in that it was in need of repair and updating. We had a 1 bedroom deluxe unit. The carpet was stained, the screen door fell right off the track and maintenance didn't fix it. Faucets leaked, the ironing board did not collapse, etc., etc. We were traveling... More

Stayed here through Diamond Resorts International Sampler program which was designed to entice people to showcase properties and upgrade ownership. What a dismal failure. Built on hillside and bedroom, kitchen and bath in lower level which feels like a dark basement.. Very dated and cheap... Went to forced sales pitch and told units would be updated . Updating will not... More

The units here were built in the 1980's. They are huge compared to new condos, probably about 1800 square feet. They have been updated somewhat. Everything is nice, but not the latest decor. No fancy granite countertops in the kitchen, for instance. The beds are very comfortable, the view from our unit was lovely. The restaurant at the Golf Clubhouse... More

We stayed at the Fairway Forrest (now by Diamond Resorts- which those guys are a JOKE!) but the resort was ok. Highly dated but offered all interior amenities! Beds were all memory foam. 2 restaurants within 5 mins, 1 grocery store within 10 mins. Everything shuts down during certain times. If you love waterfalls, hiking, biking, and golf, then this...

We purchased our Timeshare week from a friend of ours and Thanksgiving (Week 52) is her week. Which we're thrilled with..gives us something to do at Thanksgiving!

I stayed at this resort about a month ago and got bed bug bites all over. I called the resort to let them know and was told "We will let housekeeping know" and got hung up on. I called back and asked for a manager and they were "out of the office". Still waiting for a call back.

Checked in and they switched us to a different unit because of repares happening in our unit. We loved the unit we stayed in. It was so nice and spacious!

A king sized bed downstairs with some twins upstairs and plenty of room for an air mattress upstairs. Everything is a bit dated but if you're in the mountains, you should be outside anyway. Really nice lake walk accessible with an amenity card!

“In our 1 BR unit the decor was a mix of ultra-modern W/D and 80's drapes. Not the most comfortable bed or LR chairs in the world (no sofa or loveseat : - ( but adequate if the weather lets you get out a love. TV's upstairs (LR) and down (BR). Kitchen was very well equipped, but tiny and no space for storing food stuffs. Ref. large, but ice maker slow. Love the sough of the wind in the trees off the deck. Large 2 person whirlpool. Not luxury, but very nice for a getaway.”
