“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

We have just returned from staying at no.16 Glaciers reach. On arriving at this apartment my heart sank! There was nothing in the details to suggest it's position which was about as close to the main road as possible. Who wants to sit in a hot tub on view to all the passing traffic? The outside space was non existent and noisy. We have stayed at these apartments before and have always found them spacious. No.16 is cramped and small. there is way too much furniture in the living room. We had to ask for more hangers and the smaller bed room had no drawer space at all. Having read previous reviews which had commented on the state of the carpets and promises of having them replaced I could not believe the state of them. I understand that some people don't respect their surroundings but for goodness sake Galib have some hard floor put down. The carpet in the main bed room is a joke. It reminded me of the worst student housing standards. The problem is I suppose you work on the fact that not many people will return so why spend money? We paid in the region of $2000 dollars for this place which I am so angry about. We did think about contacting at the time but couldn't really see the point. It was little things like on the one night we stayed in and decided to watch a DVD it took my husband half an hour to put the thing together. It's s good job he is technically minded. So all in all not happy and feel we have been ripped off big time. Don't stay here it is dark and depressing.

In contrast to some reviews from Glaciers Reach we found it quiet and peaceful. The unit was clean, modern and everything was as advertised. It is so nice to be able to do laundry! Also we all enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings when it cooled down. It was so awesome that we were right across the street from Whistler Village. When we wanted to just go stroll, all we had to do was cross the street. Grocery store also right across the street. Our hosts offered free wifi which was great to keep in touch since we did not have cell phones. All you need is provided at this unit and the hosts cover everything you need to know in advance and there are instructions at the unit itself. The only slight drawback we had was the difficulty of very narrow parking spaces in the parking garage. Highly recommend this townhouse for anyone.

We have stayed in unit #64 twice, once in summer and once in the fall. Our stays have been very enjoyable. The unit was exceptionally clean and well appointed. All stainless appliances including washer / dryer. Hot tub on deck which was used by kids and ourselves after longs days out. The view from master deck was beautiful, could see all the way to Peak to Peak. The location was more than we had hoped for as it was a short walk to village for groceries or just a stroll. I would recommend Glaciers Reach to any of my friends looking for a great place to stay in Whistler

Room Tip: Rooms facing west get full sun in summer and winter

Loved our stay in whistler. We come up every year and stay in this unit #99. Lots of room, two separate bedrooms, bathrooms, sofa couch, full kitchen, love the private hot tub, close to the underground parking so you can bring up all your stuff, bikes, etc. Kids were thrilled with an Xbox! Extra blankets, plenty of towels, what more can I say!
Across the street from IGA, not facing the pool so it's way quieter! Great holiday place!

We stayed for a week. On arrival we realized the apartments are much more basic than the pictures. If you want to be surrounded by college kids drinking blue moons in the Jacuzzi's and be picking up toilet paper at your front door, then this is the place to come. Its reasonably cheap so you get what you pay for, but our feet were black within an hr of arriving, as the floors were not washed properly and the windows looked like someone had had a large crap and cleaned their hands on the window pains. Cable choice was basic and internet access was sketchy at best.

Its basic, really nothing special, but great if you want to remenise or role play your college days.

Had a blast. I would rather stay here then a hotel any day. We had are own hot tub off the front door. Full kitchen, which was nice. We did are fair share of eating out, but was nice to have a full kitchen to make drunken muchies like we did after a few drinks in the hot tub. Having you own washer and dryer is very nice. Little bit of a walk to the gondola but you get to walk through the village and beside you going to be active, very little more exercise doesn't hurt. And again..... Hot tub, how nice is that after a day of snowboarding or down hilling and relaxing in your own hot tub with a couple of brewskies. Enough said.

We've been staying regularly at Glacier's Reach for over 12 years now, always with Trevor from whistlervacations.com because of the impeccable and personalized service he provides, and most of the time at unit #58 because it's the best suite for the money. Trevor's cleaning staff is just awesome. Needless to say we will be back soon, and next Winter too. If you are looking for a place where you are a valued customer and taken care of promptly and with a personal touch contact whistlervacations.com. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Room Tip: Call Trevor at whistlervacations.com and ask for unit #58
