We just spent two weeks at this very pleasant resort. First off, I must mention that the staff are all exceptionally friendly and helpful. You could not go past anyone without them smiling/waiving/saying hello, and they were very professional when handling any requests we had. For the first week we stayed in a one bedroom ground floor unit....very nicely appointed, with fully equipped kitchen, laundry, very comfortable bed/linens, very clean. The only concern we had was there was little sound insulation between units, so we could hear TV + conversations from the unit beside, and walking, dining chairs dragging, toilets flushing etc from above. For our 2nd week (upon our request) they were kind enough to relocate us to a lovely top floor deluxe one bedroom unit. Wow! Again, very nicely finished/equipped and this unit also had vaulted ceiling, gas fireplace, a Jacuzzi tub, and very large outdoor patio too. Again, very clean and comfortable. Multiple pools / spas on the property (including the main one, which is set up more for families/kids, with slide + spray toys etc) so if you are looking for a quieter pool experience check out one of the many other pools on this massive property. Lots of major retailers within a 10-15 minute drive (Costco, Target, Kohl's, Vons, etc etc) so supplies were not an issue. Monday's on-site market offered a large variety of crafts, produce, baked goods and other food items at a reasonable price. This is a great location to use as a jump-off point for exploring all that southern California has to offer. Special thanks to Alissa (front desk) who was particularly kind and helpful. Thank you!
