We have stayed in this resort for the past 4 years while having a "girls week" in Las Vegas, we typically have a 2 bedroom unit but almost 25% of the resort is going through major unit renevation so not much was available and we took the 1 bedroom unit as we had stayed in one 4 years ago.
It turns out there are 2 different styles and the "standard" 1 bedroom was much smaller. We must have had a "deluxe" unit in the past. It would be fine for a couple traveling together but not so much for a girls weekend. The bathroom was extremely incovenient as it is open to the bedroom so not a lot of privacy for showering and the sink area was very small and difficult for 2 women to get ready at the same time.
The restaurant is also closed until spring for renovation and the little convenience store prices are not exactly competetive. The pools are nice and the unit is well furnished and appointed. We took advantage of the free shuttle service to the strip almost every day and they have golf cards to pick you up and transport you to the front desk. It is a very quick drive to the stip and they have 3 dropoff points and also shuttle service to Freemont street. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. One change I did not like is they do not do the mid week cleaning for timeshare rental, so you had to call for towel exchanges.
Overall we like the resort but our stay was less than ideal this time due to the unit size, and they have closed the road across from the resort which allowed us easy daytime walking to the strip. The unit is located behind the Imperial Palace and used to be a quick walk. Apparently they are building some kind of adult amusement park which should definitely add to the experience when it opens in the spring.
If you can get the larger unit at a good price it is worth it to stay there, it is clean, well appointed, has good security and the location is not bad.
