I booked this 3 bedroom townhouse through the Registry Collection/RCI for a golfing trip. There were five mature adults and we had a wonderful time. The kitchen was very well equipped and all the appliances worked. The beds were super comfortable. The townhouse was very clean and there was generous storage space. It was great to have underground parking directly underneath. I enjoyed the upper lodge pools but little else was open during this shoulder season. We did have a few concerns. First, this is an old building (1970s or 80s) and there are no smoke detectors. Second, the “underground “ garage leaked badly during a day of heavy rain. How structurally sound is the building? Third, the steep stairs (two flights within the townhouse) are challenging to negotiate with luggage. They are a fall risk for the able and completely inaccessible for anyone with significant mobility problems. Fourth, the renovated interior, while well designed, demonstrated some sloppy execution. One kitchen cupboard could not be fully opened and the tiled floors in the kitchen and one of the bathrooms were not completely grouted. We requested additional dishcloths and other supplies five days into our trip, but they never arrived. I guess gaps in service are now the norm post Covid. Overall, a very enjoyable trip with accommodation that was more than adequate but not luxurious. I would definitely return to Panorama but would look for more modern accommodation next time.…
the resort was great -senior accessability was only problem.more than 30 stairs. very well equipped and comfortable Hot tubs and pools were lovely and easily reached.underground parking close to unit.
Wonderful view of the mountain from our living room. Very well equipped unit with comfortable furnishing and beds. A bit of a trek to get into Invermere and surrounding areas. Would highly recommend this resort..
This is our 4th time in Panorama Mt. Resort and it never gets old. Still a fun place to have a quiet and relaxing vacation. Our friends who came with us and are first timers at the resort and they only have great thigs tp say about the resort. Service is excellent, the resort is a bit dated but generally still in great shape, clean, and offers a lot of activities like white water rafting, nature hike, golf, biking, and of course swimming and many more,
We stayed in a suite the bed was a pulled out from the wall the room was well-stocked had a kitchen bathroom was great it was quiet good views - there are no restaurants in the immediate area so everything has to be walked two and guess what it’s all uphill - there is amazing hot tubs as well scenery biking and all other tremendous things that the kids will love. It is an extremely expensive place to stay so bring your credit card yes there is a lot of walking
Parking was an issue. Not able to park near unit one night and vehicles parked in entranceways. Very limited food options Monday and Tuesday, with limited options the rest of the week during the summer. For restaurant variety and options need to travel 20 minutes on slow winding road (not long and winding😜).
The units are always clean and well equipped. The timeshare office is efficient, responsive and accommodating. There was maintenance work going on during our stay but the impact on us was minimal. We always enjoy our stay here.
We were really looking forward to a getaway and Panorama is beautiful, even off season; however these units are dated. They are clean but they are dated. The paint is peeling on the patio, the tiles on the fireplace are crooked and stained. The furniture (coffee table) is very scratched up and the carpet is functional and newish but I don't know why at a mountain resort you wouldn't have hardwood floors. The hot tubs closest to us were closed. The t.v. and internet worked occasionally. The hot water tank was turned off when we got there and we discovered it had a leak when we turned it on. I say all this because it makes me so sad to know that with just a little bit of work these could be amazing units. They are in a beautiful location. Their competition (AirBnB) offers much nicer units for the same price. I just don't understand RCI timeshares. They have guaranteed income, 24/7 from their owners yet they are often the worst maintained places you will stay. The RCI Points system nickel and dimes you with housekeeping fees, resort fees, etc. which often make it cheaper to stay elsewhere. I just don't understand. Andrea, who I believe is in charge of the Panorama timeshare, was kind and helpful. It's too bad they don't give her some units she can really be proud of. Went to visit nearby Fairmont RCI resort and the employee there spoke of her constant complaints from RCI members about how the RCI system works. When will RCI stand out above the crowd and stop basing their business model goals on signing up as many new members as they can and rather base it on having the best customer service and the fairest values in the travel industry. …
Horsethief Lodge is a great place to stay when skiing at Panorama Mountain Resort. These are older condominiums but well maintained and kept in excellent condition. The kitchen had everything we needed, the wifi was easy to use, lots of television channels. We could ski from the slopes right to the door of our unit. What more could you ask of accommodation at a ski resort. We have stayed at Horsethief several times but because of COVID some things were a bit different this year. Health orders prevented some services from being offered and some amenities from being open. This is not the resorts fault, they were just following the provincial health orders. Everything which was allowed to be open was well maintained and clean. We had a great week at this resort.
