“Great location, Great Pool, Great Service, Great Condo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We loved our stay at Simba Run! The pool is huge and warm and the kids had a blast! The indoor and outdoor hot tubs were also lovely and large. The condo itself was cozy, comfortable, and well appointed. The location is perfect! So close to skiing and restaurants. We didn't take the shuttle since we have small children but the drive was simple and quick. We also enjoyed the hot cocoa and coffee in the lobby many times. The value of this property was amazing as Vail is so pricey and we felt like we found a semi-affordable option for our family. It is a very old condo property so we did have issues with the stove fan and I blew the bathroom circuit 4 times trying to use a hair dryer. So know it is older with some quirks. We will be booking again! It is top of our list for condos in Vail.

Thank you for your kind review, we LOVE families here at Simba Run and hope we will see you again in the future. Next time please call Michele in reservations directly and ask for an updated unit. We have a few of the older models, but the vast majority have been updated and I think you will find one of those units more what you are needing. Hope to see you again this winter!

We have stayed at Simba quite a few times and we are always pleased with the service. Michele goes above and beyond to help us with getting a great condo, answering any questions we might have or friends that come to stay with us. They always comment on how friendly and helpful she is to everyone. It is refreshing. We love the shuttle that is so convenient, we don't even need to bother to have a car to drive around, it is so relaxing. After a day of hiking, skiing or whatever we love to come back and enjoy the pool, hot tub.

Room Tip: Talk to Michele, she is Reservations Manager and knows the condos and what will best fit your needs.

We have stayed at many hotels around the world and a couple of the things we value the most are a personal feel and great service from a friendly, supportive staff. While all the employees at Simba Run are helpful and work hard, we were particularly impressed by the knowledge and experience of Michele and Jeffery. When we called in for our reservation, Michele was delightful on the phone and went out of her way to find us the best condo in the complex that would suit our needs. We were so pleased with the condo she found for us. Once there, she and Jeffery went out of their way to share their knowledge of the area and advise us where to go and what to do. It is people like them that make vacation experiences so nice. We will definitely return to Simba Run!

We have been staying at Simba for a number of years and absolutely love it! The condos have everything you need to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner which helps us save money while we are staying in Vail. The huge pool and hot tubs are perfect for our family especially after a long day on the town. From the front desk to the housekeepers the staff is super friendly, especially Jeffrey. He's been a mainstay and we always look forward to talking with him. You cannot go wrong at Simba. Stay here and you will love it!

We have stayed at Simba Run many times, and every time I know we will find it the same. It is just minutes to everything our young family values in Vail. (Parks, trails, hiking, and we can walk into Vail Village) The staff have gone out of their way to serve our family, and we know that they want to help us have a great stay. The staff are locals to the area, and have great recommendations help us maximize our time...which as a family is key. I am very thankful for the front desk workers kindness and sincerity in answering our questions, and helping make our stay a "win."

Room Tip: We love having a room on the first floor of building One, because then our kids can play on the gras...

I have brought groups of college student leaders from around the U.S. to Simba Run each summer for the past ten years. I have developed a friendship with Jeffery and Michelle and continue to come back year after year due to our incredible working relationship. They are professional, thoughtful, helpful and personal in their interactions with our leadership. The condominiums are clean, convenient to everything and our perfect home away from home every summer.

I just booked three 2BR condos at Simba for the umpteenth time for our 35th annual December Men's December ski trip to Vail. Others in our group will be booking additional units separately this year. I forgot how many years we've been staying at Simba, but it's a lot. Never stayed anywhere else since our first time. Michele Davis takes care of reservations , and is ably assisted by Jeffrey at check in. Simba has all the amenities, reasonable price, and great service. I highly recommend Simba whether for a family, a group such as ours, or a couple. You won't be disappointed. Tom Davern
