Overall very nice suite, spacious, lots of room for our family of five. Pool is very poor though, basically just a hot tub and splash pad for toddlers. Elevators can be very slow at busy times, try to avoid that if you can. They advertise wifi, which does exist, but is so painfully slow it is useless. I would recommend... More

We stayed there for 1 night, a night I wished I stayed somewhere else. It's a new beautiful place, but our room had no heat. The furnace was broken, the fireplaces didn't work either. Fixtures in the shower were all loose and the toilet paper holder was broken. They changed me room and everything was fine, but to repackage everything... More

This is an amazing hotel, with full kitchens and plenty of space for everything you need. My best friend had her wedding and we stay here, there was plenty of room to get ready.

If you're on the mountain facing side of the complex the views of the three sisters are amazing! The Condo's are very nicely furnished with HUGE fridges and state of the art appliances.

We stayed here for a marriage retreat weekend. The suite was enormous! The workmanship was well done and we felt like a King and Queen for the weekend. The pool on the other hand was quite a hike and then a bit disappointing as it was quite small and the ambiance was lacking. However the hot tub worked!.

We stayed here for 8 days over the holidays. The gym is nice - functional. The spa is awkwardly located within the hotel but is lovely. The theater is a nice touch. The kids very much enjoyed it. The games room leaves something to be desired. The pool area is nice for toddlers. Not so great for family fun. There... More

We traded our timeshare to stay here (family of 6) and overall we had a great time! The underground parking is large enough to accommodate a truck/suv with a car top carrier.

The 2 bedroom suite (Aurora 310) would be great for two couples, but the sofa bed was a big disappointment. Other resorts within walking distance of this one have better sofa beds. Of course you don't know till you try. (or read a review) Given that there was storage for over 3 dozen bottles of wine in 3 separate coolers/fridges,... More

We recently spent the weekend here at a friends condo. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The resort was very clean and pretty quiet. The only draw back was the pool/hot tub. The pool is VERY small so when it's busy you can barely enjoy a soak in the hot tub either. Great place for families and pretty close... More
