We stayed for 3 days July 6-8th. This was near the final chapters of the fires in the area. First and foremost, the desk workers at the Academy are very polite and professional. In addition, the breakfast each morning is as good as it gets...bar none. Patrick is a great chef and the staff waits on you as if you are family. The Falcon Bar and Grill is very good too, when it gets busy the service drops off a bit, as our waiter Jeff lost track of us after our food arrived on our 3rd night at the hotel. He is very good overall. The concerns we have are with the 2 room suites and general lack of supervision in the hotel by the staff. The fan in the bathroom was literally caked with dirt, mold etc. The carpet had ripples in it and would have been a trip hazard had we been elderly or with young kids. The door lock could use replacing as it was very sporadic at best when attempting to key card inb the room. The only other thing one needs to be aware of is that the pool, which is very nice is not a place that you can relax and enjoy family time due to a lack of supervision for the many unsupervised children who literally take over the pool because their parents won't show up and do the right thing. This could be solved by having the Academy staff simply roam through the area at least once an hour or more. Overally, we enjoyed our time, if they improve that 2 room suite and/or offer better family packages we would return.
