Spent a week in Canyon Villas and very much enjoyed the hospitality of the resort and the staff. This is a Marriott Vacation Club timeshare resort most of the people staying here are either owners or folks that have traded in and are staying a full week. Our two-bedroom villa was clean, fully equipped and provided us a limited view of the adjacent Wildfire Golf course. At check-in you will receive a schedule of resort events for the duration of your stay - there is a good mixture of both children and adult events - we have learned to look closely at the schedule so as not to miss something that we would like to attend. The resort hosted a Monday AM event where they brought in reps from local activities to discuss services they had to offer - we found that to be very helpful. Discovered there that the Wildfire Golf course holds a week-day golf clinic at 1000 for a very reasonable fee, you get one-hour of group professional instruction for $30 and all day use of the practice range. We also booked a horseback riding outing that we thoroughly enjoyed with Western Destinations as a result of attending that session.
Several nights a weeks there are live music events in the courtyard area near the pool. We especially liked the Western music event which was held on Tuesday night.
Our party included our soon to be two-year old grandson who very much enjoyed the Children's Playground and other games on the property. Pools were heated and comfortable despite the early December time frame. Take your marshmallows since there are several fire pits for evening toasting gatherings.
Facilities at the adjacent JW Marriott are available to the Canyon Villa's residents and were excellent, we shopped and dined there but did not use the pools because the Canyon Villa pools met all our needs. Canyon Villas runs a shuttle to the JW every 30 minutes during certain hours of the day. There are also periodic trips to the nearby shopping center.
We did our food shopping at the Albertsons which is 5 minutes away in the shopping center across the street from the resort, I found that they had everything we needed and the prices were reasonable.
Overall we had a great time and plan to return.
