We had a groupon so the price was great and the full kitchen worked well for us as we like to cook our own meals. Nice jetted tub in the large bathroom. Check in went quickly - just avoid the timeshare sales pitch. Would have preferred to park our own car so as not to have to wait for valet....

Thank you for taking the time in posting your positive review of our resort. We are glad to see that our unit accommodations and amenities met your desire to cook your own meals, and that check in went quickly. As far as the parking issue goes, we are currently undergoing a renovation project that, once finished, will allow our guests...

I got a groupon so we had a pretty good deal staying here for a two-night stay. Would consider staying here again if I get a good rate. :) The regular rate they usually have seems a bit high. The Pros: 1. Location: great location 2. Decor: Fair. Everything is kept pretty clean and neat. Like it. 3. Price: Great...

We purchased this property before it was even Sunterra (and then Diamond Resorts). We've done owner updates and always loved our time here. The kids love, love, love the indoor/outdoor heated pool and we feel that the accomodations are homey and comfortable and right near the lake. However, this last time we did our first "owner update" through Diamond Resorts...

Nice place in a great location but- Additional charge for parking ($16 per day) and wi-fi.($7). NO onsite parking-valet only. One week-end morning people waited 40 minutes for their car. Room had no closet or place for a suitcase. We used extra bed for suitcases until my wife tore her ACL an I slept with the suitcases. No ski storage...

I have never had a bad stay at a Diamond Resorts Property but this one is awesome! I am a ski bum and have stayed at most hotels in Tahoe but this on is my favorite. The location is great as it is across the street from Heavenly Ski Resort. New and beautiful rooms, friendly staff. Will stay here again...

I went with three teenagers (2 brought friends) and we all had a wonderful time. Check in is a breeze (we even arrived early).

My wife and I are owners through this resort and were invited to come to Lake Tahoe for a presentation. We hadn't upgraded our membership in some time, so we sat through the presentation.
