We were lucky to be able to rent a studio just 2 weeks before Christmas for Christmas week the studio was adequate, could use some updating, but was clean and nothing to complain about, and the price was reasonable. The studios are individually owned, so I am sure they vary in quality..
The location of the resort is fantastic...2 blocks from El Paseo shopping and restaurants. The coffee shop on the premises is nothing to write home about, so we were glad to have a microwave, coffee maker and small fridge in the unit. I also think it is a disadvantage not to have an actual front desk person to ask for travel and restaurant tips. Once we had checked in, we never saw the front desk person again...of course we could have detoured to the lobby ...wifi in our room was off and on.
The unit was just steps from the beautiful tennis courts. I was disappointed that there were no organized group clinics..I was told that this is because it is holiday time (!). I could take private lessons, but did not want to do that. I was matched up in one doubles game each day, which was fine. The courts are oriented so that the sun will be in your eyes on one side in the morning.
All in all a beautiful facility in a great location, reasonably priced.
