Traded our Marriott timeshare months ago, and though it took several calls to the new Embarc management---Diamond Resorts as well as calls up to the day of our stay to the resort itself to make sure we avoided some of the negative things said on Trip Advisor, we received a warm welcome and a perfect room--in the adult section, high...

Excellent option in Whistler upper village. We had a fantastic two bedroom suite with a ground floor patio nestled in behind some trees. Really enjoyed spending evenings on the patio after the kids went to bed. Nice furnishings and a huge jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom. Washer and dryer in closet beside kitchen. Wifi was good. Pool/waterslide is great... More

The amenities- pools, spa exercise room, common rooms were very good. We had a studio with queen bed and mini kitchen which was fine since we did not cook or eat in. The room was a little small but the bathroom was good size. The only criticism was the lighting was insufficient in the bedroom despite a large window.
