I needed a place that would sleep 7 adults without breaking the bank. It was for my brother's stag and I was told I should check out Tantalus, so I did just that. It's also close to the village, about a 10 minute walk to Skier's Plaza. We walked each night into the village to do a pub/bar crawl. Wasn't bad at all.
I booked the 2-bedroom suite which includes 1 queen, 2 twins, 1 bunk bed (2 twins again) as well as a pull out sofa (about the size of a queen). It has a full kitchen (with dishwasher!) as well as 2 bathrooms, which is good when you have a suite of 7 guys.
We heard about the BBQs that are available, but they are charcoal based. If you plan on using them and didnlt bring any charcoal, then the front desk has you covered ($7.50?) . They are located next to the tennis court. I did check the Whistler Village Grocery store (the one near Moe Joes) but they didnt seem to sell charcoal, at least not that I could find. Perhaps Nesters has some for a better price?
The pool seems to have great hours of operation and was told you could also bring your own booze down. The pool was packed during our 2 night stay.
The suite we had also have 3 pots and a small frying pan. If you plan on doing some cooking in the kitchen, check to see what you might want to cook with as you might need to bring it with you.
There is 1 small safe in the bedroom with the twin beds.
Overall the stay was good. We didn't feel too squished. It's not like staying at the Westin or Pan Pacific, but if you're on a budget and want something comfortable without breaking that budget then the Tantalus seems to be fairly good. There are I think 4 floors but only 1 elevator, at times we would skip the elevator and take the stairs. .
If I stayed with a large group again, I would probably book the Tantalus
