My wife & I stayed in a 2 BR unit. We were given a unit over looking the two pools. We should have known this was a mistake but we took it assumming few if any would be in the pool given the 44 degree temps. Wrong!
The noise emanating from the pool by both the people.. who think it is OK to yell and scream the entire time.. as well as the loud music played by the resort made the stay unpleasant. During slow time.. October... few employees with any kind of authority were to be found. When we asked about noise.. they said... "wel, we follow Breck's noise rules and that means 10 PM". 10 PM and yes.. loud music and people screaming. If you are looking for quiet, go elsewhere.
Towel exchange is Wednesday. Towels aree to be placed on the floor inside the door. Do they tell you they do not get around to ir until 2 or 4 PM? No.
The restaurant onsite is OK but.. closed on Wednesdays.. slow time.
Check in was painful as well... as it is with most time shares. You would check in at the front desk and then see Concierge for your 'Parking Pass'.. and the usual harassment for selling you trips, activities and mostly.. to sign you up for a tour. Melody kept saying that we receive free $25 but 'free' means you spend time with very aggressive sales people for a couple hours. We passed and were told 'No one has ever passed before'. Really?
The flat screens are 32 inch.. OK I guess but Marriott give you 42 inches. Carpets are worn, furniture is old but in their defense they get a beating from the ski and snow board crowd. Parking is an issue, even with a pass. The building is much larger than the available spaces so plan on searching for a place. This issue may not eb the same in other buildings so.. avoid building 5.
All the appliances are cheap.. again typical of Breck time shares and the whirlpool tub needed to be caulked. The beds are sagging and provide little support.
The stay was OK but, then goodness the resort was mostly empty as the noise level would most likely be unbearable.
