Gateway's unique location where 5 red rock canyons converge on the Delores River provides one of the most stunning settings for a hotel that I have encountered. The adobe style lodge and well laid out grounds provide visitors amazing views which change throughout the day. Our room was extremely well thought out with views, privacy and comfort in mind. The...

We spent 6 lovely days at the resort. Staff wonderful, so helpful and pleasant, scenery stunning and resort clean and tidy (Ok the odd goose dropping on the footpath). We had a Casitas Villa which was beautifully furnished and very relaxing, fully recommended. We tried horse riding and Ross and the ladies were very thoughtful and helpful and the horse... More

Words and pictures really can not completely capture the true beauty one the most beautiful resorts in the USA!!! My family and I stayed at Gateway Canyon Resort for just two short nights.

This resort has an unbelievable car museum. All 100 classics are American cars in impeccable condition. In addition you can rent a luxury dream car for a 4 or 12 hour evaluation. Take a helicopter tour of 5 canyons Lose your self in a Walter Mitty Vacation. Try it!

Dear Bob G, Thank you for your delightful review. I love your mention of a Walter Mitty Vacation. Our Auto Museum is truly world class and Driven Rentals offer many choices in exotic "dream" cars. Imagine renting a Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500 or a Bentley Continental GTD and driving up the scenic Unaweep Tabaguache byway to Telluride for a... More

I stayed with my young family (3yr old and a 1yr old). My children were spoken directly to and not treated as a nuisance. The staff called them "sir" and "miss" with sincerity. Every need was handled quickly, and the staff was very knowledgeable and well-trained. Food was amazing! Rooms were amazing! When my room was cleaned, they even folded... More

Terrific venue for Alegre Retreat. Spectacular scenery with the Palisade towering over the resort. Top quality food and staff. Lots of activities, including helicopter rides, ATV rides, hiking, and more. Inspiring setting for a retreat. Icing on the cake is the Gateway Auto Museum. Outstanding collection of American automobiles.

We stayed for a weekend in low season, and I must say that I was very pleasantly surprised. I did not know the area would be so spectacular (the entire drive, from the moment you turn onto Hwy 141, all the way to the resort, about 45 minutes away, was jaw-dropping), but on top of that, the resort was a...

This is a wonderful location for a resort. The views are phenomenal. The room was very, very nice. There was not only a fireplace in the room but a fire pit in the private patio. Fortunately, they have WIFI as I lost cell service (Verizon) there. The resort brings in foreigners as an internship, so that is very interesting. The... More

Thank you for your detailed review. You mention losing cell service, however Verizon does work here in Gateway. Sometimes we have found it necessary to turn the phone off and then restart. All of our outlets are currently running, except the Cantina at the Palisade Pool, which is scheduled to open in the middle of May. Although we are remote,... More
