My brother and sister-in-law joined us for a week at Cibola Vista at the end of May. We were ready for the adventure, but not the heat! Most days were in the upper 90s to lower 100s. That was hard coming from the Mid Atlantic where we had had two days of frost before we left.
Yes, there are large stores close by, but not right next to the complex. It made it convenient to buy groceries at the Super Target just a couple of mile down the road.
The accomodations were quite nice. I had asked to be on the top floor so that we wouldn't have noise over us. Booking through Interval International didn't get us the penthouse apartments. We were told that they try to put the families with children on the first floors. Friday night of our stay we found out that they don't really mean that. We had running races and very heavy walking above far too late into the evening. In another building there were at least six small children on the balcony on the fourth floor. In talking with the front desk about the noise on Friday night they told us to call the front desk and they would send some up to the apartment and ask them to be quiet. It they had to go out a second time the guests would be asked to leave. I seriously doubt that. We didn't put that to a test. Saturday night we changed to the bedroom that my brother vacated and the noise wasn't as bad.
The apartments were nicely decorated in darker tones. The lights won't blind you, but that makes for a cooler atmosphere. You can go out on the balcony to get stronger light. The thing I found puzzling was why they use too small of a top sheet for the mattress. We struggled most every night trying to keep it tucked in on the sides. We certainly put the washer and dryer to work.
Our toilet stopped up and it took three calls to have someone come fix it. It wasn't until my husband offered to come get the plunger that someone came. Fortunately we had a two bedroom so there was another toilet that we could use. Other than that, we found the staff very friendly and helpful
The kitchen was well-equipped with everything we needed. I did alert the front office that we were missing a couple of spoons and a glass. I didn't want to get charged for those items. They brought the spoons but not the glass. I'm surprised that the refrigerator didn't have an icemaker. The trays froze pretty quickly so we did OK after the first day.
The grounds were very well kept. We thought that it was a very attractive complex. Both pools were well maintained.
We sat at the adult pool two afternoons. The second time we had children come in. The first time, the lady working at the bar came over and asked them to leave. Another couple at the bar had two small girls and they were allowed to stay with their parents as they drank at the bar. A couple brought in their teenage daughter and a younger child. The children played in the pool and weren't asked to leave. If it is an adult pool area- then it needs to stay that way. They need to work on that.
The slide at the children's pool was great. The restriction was for those over 4' tall and under 300 pounds so we went down several times. CV has changed to salt water for the pools so be prepared.
All in all it was a nice stay for our sightseeing in Arizona. Would we go back, probably not, just because there are so many other places and things to see elsewhere.
