This resort is very unique in that every room is individually owned and as such the condition of the rooms varies greatly. On my arrival I was issued room 221 and it was old and run down, and not the room I expected nor wanted to stay a week in. It looked like it had not had an update since... More

Spent a week here in early October with temperatures in the 90's. Good air con and nice apartment with everything laid on to make a comfortable stay. Huge comfortable bed, small lounge with chairs and TV, great little kitchenette fully equipped and lovely bathroom with walk in shower. Even a little patio to sit out in. The pool is large... More

I have always loved this magestic tennis haven with it's oversized figure eight pool and it's historic vibe! It's terrific value, in a fabulous location, the tennis facilities and staff are all top notch! Hotel staff and guests are always super friendly. I look forward to coming back again and again.

Michael was very professional, and very nice when I booked this place. I asked him a lot of questions, and he was very knowledgeable and very patient with me. It's people like Michael that make traveling fun, and relaxing. I will definitely book here again.

We stayed in the Shadow Mountain Resort for two nights in May. It's in a complex that consists of privately owned townhouses and hotel rooms for overnight stays. There is a nice pool and hot tub area and plenty of tennis courts. The rooms are a good size with a kichenette, dining area for four, a couch, television and deck... More

Greatt value! Rooms are nice with kitchen including full refrigerator. Pool and tennis courts beautiful! Beginning a woman and traveling alone for business I felt very safe with it being a gated resort. I Would definitely stay again!

Only here for two nights but the accommodations were wonderful. Very quiet and relaxing from a busy day. Rooms were clean and the grounds were both nostalgic and beautiful. The pool side villas are great for a quick weekend, close to everything. If I come back to the area I will prefer to stay here.

We stayed here for 4 nights. Was only meant to be for 2 nights. Place was so comfortable. Pool huge and we pretty much had it to ourselves. Lovely shops and restaurants nearby. Only downside is the catering facilities. The cafe is only open to 2.30pm but might stay open longer during busier times. Was peaceful. Just what we needed... More
