“Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Stayed here for a week as a Diamond Resorts member. We had a townhouse in the first block, furthest away from the beach. At first we thought it might be nicer to be nearer, but it actually isn't a problem. We were facing the garden behind, maybe if we had been facing the road it would have been an issue with noise.
The unit was huge with bedroom upstairs via a spiral staircase. The balcony leads from the bedroom too which is good for better views. The unit had 2 huge bathrooms, but a very small kitchen area with just a microwave a small grill and an upmarket coffee maker. Being English we found it difficult to make a cup of tea (had to use microwave to heat water). There are plenty of barbecues outside around the grounds and on the beach for dining.
The area is stunning and the club has a private beach which is monitored closely to ensure only members use it. There are plenty of seats and sunbeds on the beach and although the pool is small it wasn't that busy so was fine.
There are plenty of activities to take part in and great hiking in the area. Restaurants and shops are also on your doorstep.
The only thing that disappointed me was on checking out we had planned to stay on the beach for a few hours before driving to San Francisco. We were told because we were not 'owners' we were not allowed. I mentioned that we would go on the public beach next door and they told us we would have our car towed if we left it in the car park. As this is an affiliated resort to Diamond Resorts, apparently the same rules don't apply.

Stayed her for a week at the end of July 2013. No issues. Walking distance to the casinos and "downtown" area. Staff was freindly. Place was clean. Lodge farthest from the beach was less than a block away. Room was smallish but fit our needs. Kitchen appliances were useful and it appeared many families ate in or via the grill and picnic tables for most nights. Restaruants also are within one to two block walk. We would consider staying here again.

Checked in on July 4th, busy,crazy, day for the hotel. Stayed on 5th also and it was much more sane. We had a room which faced the road and with no A/C in room and windows open because of the heat we had zero sleep because of the noise of people, sirens, car noise outside. Place has a very nice family party on 4th and a private beach which they do a good job of patrolling to keep no hotel guests off property. There are no restaurants,pool is nice but very small, rooms are nice 2 room units. Overall a nice place with a good location but for the price we paid (about $250 a night) I expected to be able to get some sleep.

Room Tip: Don't stay in a room anywhere near the road.

Locataion is right on the beach. Great for walks in the morning and evening. Our units in the building closet to the beach, #5. A bit slow to check in but ohter than that, staff was helpful. Grounds were well maintained as were the buildings and our unit. Some things seemed new, overall decor was a bit dated but it did not affect the comfort or our ability to enjoy ourselves. 2 stories with bedroom on top via a spiral staircase which was unexpected. Nice to have 2 large bathroons. Kitchen was very small but worked for 2 people. Not sure if you had more. Small refrigerator, microwave and toaster oven which we could not get to work, Lots of activity opportunities on site but we were always out hiking and kayaking so did not use the facilities. Lots of families were in the pool or on the beach. Noise was not an issue. Location was great as you could walk to many really great restaurants. Parking was not an issue. Wifi was fast and stable. I would definitely stay there again.

We stay here multiple times a year and actually "own" at this property as well. While the facility itself is excellent, very conducive to families, their customer service is poor. I rarely pass the front desk without hearing someone complaining at the front desk and 99% of the time that we stay, we are unhappy with our room location. You would think being an "owner" and booking a reservation 1-2 years out would find you in a building/room of your choice. There is always an excuse or an absolute "no" from the management. You know that there may be a reoccurrence of this issue when they have a sign posted at their desk warning that you will be asked to leave the hotel if you speak rudely to anyone at the front desk. TB and S will never change because people will always want to stay at such an ideal location. Just know what you are getting when you check in~

2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We made a reservation a month in advance, a few days before our trip I checked their website and saw that they had reduced the rates significantly for new reservations only. Upon check-in I asked them to honor their reduced rates for our stay which they refused to do. I understand what the website said but is it really fair that I pay more then the people who just called in yesterday?

Other prior reviews do a good job of describing the property, great location, private beach, etc., however our room was really old, dirty, and tacky. They are in the process of remodeling all the rooms but it will be some time before they are done so ask for a room in one of the remodeled units.

On check-out I again asked for the reduced rate and was told that since I had reserved on line they could not change it. I was further told that I should never reserve on line but should call the hotel because they would then give me a better price.....it seems like whoever I talked to gave me a different answer.

The unit was composed of one large bedroom, a living room with a pull out couch, a full size kitchen and two full baths. It was newly remodeled in the three story building next to the street. Because I was on the third floor I was able to see a bit of the lake and the mountains behind them.

However, what makes for a positive experience is more than the accommodations themselves. Upon check in, I was told I did not have a reservation, even though I had made it nine months earlier and called a week before to confirm my stay. It was in my brother's name and not in mine and I was almost refused access. I spent time on the phone with two separate businesses confirming that the reservation was for me and had them fax the documentation to the hotel. This is not something you want to experience almost 3,000 miles from home with no other reservations. Needless to say I was filled with anxiety until I got the proof I needed faxed to the hotel.

I do need to say that my visit to Lake Tahoe was extremely pleasurable and the hotel was pretty centrally located to what was of interest.

Room Tip: Ask for a unit that has water view. Who wants to be at Lake Tahoe and not see any of it! Second choi...
