The resort was nice and clean and the view from the Chalet was fantastic. But that was about it. The room was clean but it had several issues. The clock was cracked but working so they just removed it. The mini fridge had so much ice it that it leaked because the door didnt close all the way since it was bent and rusted. The shower held about a 1/4 inch of water so you always stepped into water that was left in there. If you want the view and dont mind the other problems then you will like this place. The ride up to the hotel was like going on the Indiana Jones Adventure ride. Also, if you rent a car dont do the tours though the hotel. You are better off driving there on your own.
