This is a nice property in the Marriott chain. My three year old loved the pools and playground, and the children's centre was huge, well equipped and well run. We had a fantasic view of the mountains with unbelievable sunsets. Definitely request something facing west. The property itself was a little far from everything, but driving anywhere we wanted to...

We just stayed here for a Spring Break getaway with the two 8-year-olds. I can see how someone might love it or hate it, depending on what kind of experience you're looking for. First off, if you have kids that love to swim and do the kids' activities, either get a room in a building near the main pool (if... More

We recently returned from our second stay at this resort. We love the rooms, the views and the pools. Shopping and restaurants are just a short drive away. We took our toddler and she did great, they have a great set up for kids at the family pool area, with a splash park and toddler pool. There is a slide... More

Every aspect of our stay at the Marriott Shadow Ridge was excellent. We’re a family of four with a boy, 14 and a girl, 8. We stayed in a 2nd floor, 2 bedroom unit in building 1400 the last week of March. We are not Marriott owners, but were guests of owners, so the reservation was in both their name... More

Visited in early March. I've stayed at several Marriott time shares. This one was up to the Marriott standard. We had the two bedroom unit, one king and the other room had two queens, with pull out in living area. There is no way you could have more than 6 people in that unit. Much smaller units then other Marriott... More

We rented a one bedroom villa near the quiet pool area. A reasonable walking distance from the other two pools that serve food and attract the family crowd. The ate lunch pool side a couple of times. The food was good and reasonably priced. The entire facility is quite walkable. The resort offers an extensive offering of activities and several... More

I went with four other women and stayed in a two bedroom suite overlooking the 16th hole. It was peaceful and quiet and I highly recommend this resort. We attended yoga, boot camp, water exercise, bike riding, golf, lounged at three of the four pools, drank from the poolside bars, and even did a little shopping in the golf shoppe.... More
