This hotel is clean, well constructed, with upscale bedding and the convenience of kitchens or kitchenettes, and it's designed for families. If you are looking for a place to bring children, this is a great fit. If you're looking for a romantic, quiet place for couples, stay elsewhere.
The Pros: Literally next to the Heavenly Gondola, clean, upgraded construction, upscale environment, service oriented staff, kids and teens activities.
The Cons: Kids running wild, noise through connecting room doors, pool too small for number of guests, one restaurant, valet-only parking.
If you are looking for a place to bring your family with school-age kids, this is a great place. You'll enjoy the children's room and your teens will also have their own place to hang out. If you're planning to buy groceries and use the full kitchen in your villa you will have a long walk with your groceries.
If you are a couple looking for a romantic location, you may want to stay elsewhere. The too-shallow pool is packed with kids throwing things, playing "Marco Polo" and splashing people sitting around the pool, running in the hallways and having a great time while their parents ignore them. Wet Frisbees and footballs flew by us poolside and the security guard on patrol said he only intervenes if there's actual physical contact with thrown objects or obscene language.
Our group had two villas and two suites, and none of us plan to return, but we were all adults without children. It just depends on what you want from your vacation and who is in your party.
