The timeshare apartment at Fairways was excellent. Well appointed, kitchen included a washing machine plus a tumble drier, and the furnishings had been recently updated. Our unit overlooked the immaculate golf course ... and of course, those magnificent mountains! Although we walked around the hotel and looked at the restaurants on site, we didn't use those facilities. We did, however, take advantage of a "special" which was offered at the Spa, and we received far more than we had expected, so came out of there feeling totally pampered and mellow. The walks in the area are stunning, especially walking to Hippo Pools, and through the forest and along the riverside. Although we did not have children with us, we were pleasantly surprised at how well families are catered for on the resort. Also, since last there, they appear to be giving the bowling green a little more TLC, as it had been in quite a state on our last visit. Fairways is a place to escape to and breathe in the beautiful mountain air ... good for the soul !
