We had a two bedroom apartment with a large family room. Suite was comfortable and well suited for our family. Kitchen was well equipped and both bedrooms has spacious bathrooms with walk in showers. The larger bedroom also had a large bathtub. Three pools available. Two hot tubs; one adult only. Multiple grills available for guests to use. Near beautiful... More

I read other reviews from HGVC owners and promptly lowered my expectations. Good thing I did. We arrived early (noon) and our room was not available, totally understandable-even though 4 other groups checked in and got keys while I was standing there??? Got the room, clean, nice size, sunny, beautiful, except for the worlds most stupid view. See picture below.... More

We booked two two-bedroom apartments complete with full kitchens, washer and dryer. The secondary bedroom had two full sized beds and there was abundant space for a family to share. The dining table accommodated eight with only a bit of squeezing together (after all, it was family). It was clean, updated and modern and had a nice balcony. Our balcony... More

We just spent 6 nights with our family and had such a great time! Our group consisted of 7 adults, ages 33-63 and 6 kids, ages 3-12. We had two 2 bedroom condos as part of a Hilton timeshare (which they unfortunately are no longer doing since it was bought by a new company called Embarc). They faced the parking... More

We enjoyed our week long stay at Club Intrawest, we had a bay view out of one the bedrooms which had great sunset views. The marina on the bay had stand up paddle boards and kayaks which we enjoyed. The shuttle is convenient, but has many stops and sometimes you wait a good bit before it picks you up. The... More

We just returned from a week at Club Intrawest as a Hilton timeshare exchange (I believe June is one of the last months that you can trade for this condo so the timing was accidentally perfect). It is true that Hilton owners do get the parking lot views. When I read this I initially thought -- not that big of... More

We've come here numerous times. Bring a bike, a bathing suit, sunscreen, running shoes, a lifejacket, a fishing pole ....bring it all. This place has such a variety of things to do. You'll love it. The units are not beach view but bayside which is nice also. Very peaceful.

We returned this month to club Intrawest for our family's annual vacation. We've been coming here for the past seven years thru Hilton grand vacations and have simply loved it. Club Intrawest was recently sold to diamond international and their relationship with Hilton has discontinued. I can't tell you how disappointed we are. We arrived this year to discover the... More

We exchanged through Interval for a 2 bedroom unit. Our unit was on the 2nd floor facing the parking lot (thanks to other Trip Advisor reviews we knew that we would be on that side because we were not Intrawest members). It was still peaceful and enjoyable to sit on the balcony (only disappointment is they allow smoking on the... More

Thank you for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. The pools are very relaxing and quiet. The hammocks are great too. All of the shopping and dining being so close is so convenient. It is nice not to have to travel too far for the things you need. While the name may have changed, we can... More
