My husband and I are owners here and we went for our first visit during the middle of April. For anyone looking to stay here, the place is clean, new, and fine. With older kids, it's a good place to go. But, keep your expectations LOW for the helpfulness of the staff. It felt like we were staying at an... More

Everything about this resort is beautiful: the nearby golf course, the facilities and the nearly-new rooms. If you have a family with kids this place is perfect for you. Nearly everyone staying there have children. The rooms are large, the pools are kid friendly and the grounds stay open with the lights on, until 10 PM. Kids are encouraged to... More

Beautiful new Westin Resort. Premier room with kitchen and king bed was perfect. Very tastefully appointed. Friendly staff. Two large pools, fair size gym, and 3-4 tennis courts. Great location. Free parking and free internet a bonus. Thank You Westin.

We spent two days at the Westin and were impressed with each and every staff member. Friendly greeting at check in and the bell hops quickly unpacked our car and told us to follow the golf cart to our unit in Building B. Though this unit was not located near the main pool,, it was just a 3-minute walk. Loved... More

We had a family of 7 at the pool on the weekend of March 27-30. Our server Mason Cusenza was wonderful. He was more patient with our requests from the childrens menu and our frequent, confusing drink order. Wonderful employee who should be appreciated by the management. This is the type of employee that can make or break a vacation.... More

If you enjoy the sounds of construction, this is you place to be. Nothing relaxing about the sound of them bundling new villas right next to the pool. We really enjoyed our time here last year, but the 3 hour wait for the roll away was just room much. Got stuck in the last unit on the property....when I told... More

I have been a Westin timeshare owner for a dozen years and have stayed in some gorgeous Westin properties around the country and in Europe. This property just did not seem to be on par with the rest of them. Our unit was located way in the back of the property overlooking a parking lot and new construction. It was... More

The Kids club looked like a storage dumping ground with cardboard supply boxes piled high. As a teacher, I can tell you this is a major safety hazard if the boxes were to fall on the children ( i.e. if a child knocked them down, earthquake) and the liability if this happened. Also when I visited there were 2 little... More

The Mirage pool area has a big waterslide. The slide requires that riders be 48 inches tall and know how to swim. There is a lifeguard stationed at the top and the bottom of the pool. Sadly, we experienced an unfortunate incident on this slide. My 8 year old son went down the slide (I was watching from the other... More

My husband, myself and our two teens stayed for 4 nights in March. The room was perfect. It faced the golf course which my husband loved as he would sit with his beer and watch the golf groups go by.
