We stayed for a week in mid-February, 2 adults, 2 kids, in a one-bedroom condo in The Springs.
Ours was the first room to the left on the first floor...so I completely understand the previous reviews about the NOISE!!! Lol. We could walk out of the patio door right into the pool area, so the kids were thrilled about that.
It was cold the week we stayed, some days not getting above 14F, but the hot tubs stayed hot. The pool was too cold for me, but not for the rest of my family; the kids begged to swim every day. I enjoyed sitting in the hot tub with a glass of wine. Or two.
The amenities were great. The theater room was a big hit, but unfortunately, many of the movies were missing due to dishonest guests. A shame. I wouldn't miss that noisy pool table; trying to enjoy a book next to the fireplace was nearly impossible with all of the kids whipping balls across the table.
Still, there was a fireplace in our room, and it was a pretty good room, if a little outdated. It was well-stocked and clean. The kitchen was a bonus; I did a lot of cooking since eating anywhere in the village cost an average of $80+/meal for the four of us. FORGET eating on the mountain...cafeteria food at it's worst for Michelin restaurant prices.
The kids slept on the sofa bed while we slept in the bedroom, and next time I would go for a two-bedroom, just for lack of space and privacy. It was unbelievably close to the gondola, the best attribute when you're trying to walk any distance in ski boots or you're whipped coming off the mountain. Perfect for two novice skiiers coming off of the long green runs, and just wanting to get back to the room and get a swimsuit on!
Here are the drawbacks:
This is a ski resort...there were FOUR WALL PEGS next to the door in the room, and that's it. HOOKS, people! It have been nice to hang all of our cold-gear when we came in. There was really no place to put it.
Also, the bedroom had a small closet and a few hangers, but no dresser. The nightstands had a few small drawers, but we pretty much had to live out of our suitcases for the week (taking up lots of space in the small room).
Towels...we had to take a lot of the yellow towels from the pool area. When the cleaning service came mid-week, they only left two new clean towels for a room with an obvious four people. Not the end of the world, as they did do a great job cleaning.
I'd stay again, and plan to. Can't wait. But I will bring 3M hooks and hangers!
