We visited some friends that were staying a week. The place is a little dated but the location is great and we had no complaints about the property. The beds were good, the air conditioner worked fine and it had good parking. It has a nice kitchen so you can save on finding breakfast in the mornings.

We stayed for two nights while visiting the mountains and were delighted with the accommodations. The condo has two levels with the master & it's bathroom downstairs while the other rooms are on the entry level. Everything was clean and fresh smelling. They do have small bars of soap for you to use but no shampoo. We didn't spend a... More

Turns out this was a time share rental. Very dated and not run like a hotel at all. Took two days to get requested cot. Not convenient to Highlands (16 miles of mountain road) Noise from unit above was irritating It's definitely worth it to pay more to stay in highlands

Made last minute reservation for a two bedroom unit. The resort is old (1980s) and could use some updating but our unit was very clean. Steps to master suite (about15) are narrow but still nice. Like jacuzzi tub in master. Kitchen is nice ( glad stop stove / oven, microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher and full size fridge). Liked the two... More

Property was recently acquired by Diamond Resorts. It is a typical Diamond property in that it was in need of repair and updating. We had a 1 bedroom deluxe unit. The carpet was stained, the screen door fell right off the track and maintenance didn't fix it. Faucets leaked, the ironing board did not collapse, etc., etc. We were traveling... More

Stayed here through Diamond Resorts International Sampler program which was designed to entice people to showcase properties and upgrade ownership. What a dismal failure. Built on hillside and bedroom, kitchen and bath in lower level which feels like a dark basement.. Very dated and cheap... Went to forced sales pitch and told units would be updated . Updating will not... More

The units here were built in the 1980's. They are huge compared to new condos, probably about 1800 square feet. They have been updated somewhat. Everything is nice, but not the latest decor. No fancy granite countertops in the kitchen, for instance. The beds are very comfortable, the view from our unit was lovely. The restaurant at the Golf Clubhouse... More

We stayed at the Fairway Forrest (now by Diamond Resorts- which those guys are a JOKE!) but the resort was ok. Highly dated but offered all interior amenities! Beds were all memory foam. 2 restaurants within 5 mins, 1 grocery store within 10 mins. Everything shuts down during certain times. If you love waterfalls, hiking, biking, and golf, then this...

We purchased our Timeshare week from a friend of ours and Thanksgiving (Week 52) is her week. Which we're thrilled with..gives us something to do at Thanksgiving! The units were built in the 70's, but recent updates have been done and our unit is VERY nice and VERY homey feeling. We were invited to friends of ours for Thanksgiving and... More

I stayed at this resort about a month ago and got bed bug bites all over. I called the resort to let them know and was told "We will let housekeeping know" and got hung up on. I called back and asked for a manager and they were "out of the office". Still waiting for a call back.
