Full of spiders, filthy, old, my skin is crawling and we are leaving as soon as our kids wake up. My husband is so upset and this was supposed to be a nice vacation with my his parents for our kids birthdays. The only thing worth the stay is the company we are with we rate it 0.00

A girls' birthday getaway of card playing, visiting and grazing our way through the weekend took us here. Very high off the narrow, beaten path (no lights at night on narrow, winding road with long drop-offs), our 3 bedroom condo had a great view. We never ventured to the pool area because the jacuzzi was not working and except for... More

We live in Alamogordo and decided to get away from, but stay close there for Spring Break. March/April weather in the mountains is great during the day, between high 50s to mid 70s. There's nothing to do by the resort except go to the indoor pool. We ventured to the town of ruidoso to play disc golf and go hiking...closest... More

the view is absolutely amazing. The facility, however leaves a lot to be desired. If you have been to other resorts, this is not up to those expectations. Had to call about lights not working, patio door handle missing, and burnt out fan switch. Otherwise it was okay.

First the good attributes. The resort is about 1000' above the surrounding town so there is an impressive view of the mountain and the valley. The staff was friendly and tried to be helpful. The apartment is large. There is a fireplace. There seems to be outside cooking facilities, etc. The deer eat out of your hand in the parking... More

We stopped by to tour the property for upcoming stay. What a beautiful scenery view and the bull elk and mule ear deer provided ample opportunities to interact and experience. The mule deer and their babies will come to you when you call out to them and will stay around for toast!

I stayed here for 1 week in early September. I received the week as a bonus week through my timeshare exchange company. I was skeptical of going because of some of the poor reviews I read about this place. I was pleasantly surprised, because I had a very large 2 bedroom unit overlooking the lake, pine trees and mountains. While... More

We have stayed at a couple of other places around Ruidoso, but this is the best. We have already booked another stay here for later in the year (timeshare exchange). The huge deck outside is perfect for viewing the amazing scenery and having al fresco meals. The condo is spacious and well-appointed, though there are a few minor repairs needed... More

I'm a time share owner of this resort and I pay lots of money in maintenance. It is never clean the sauna was removed and converted into a workout room that has been closed because of leaks for many years the people who work there are rude overall not worth it at all spend your money elsewhere.

Do not go here. We left after 2 days. Only the view was good. The condo was outdated, in dis-repair and dirty. We had to wipe down the pantry shelf before we could store food and wash all the silverware before we could use it. Uncomfortable beds, cheap and pilled bed sheets (we slept on top of the bed).
