“Great place to stay off the strip in Vegas”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We recently stayed in the one bedroom condo here in Las Vegas. Excellent choice away from the noise of traffic and smoke filled casinos. Although the summer heat wave was kicking in to the high 100s F, The pools (4 of them) offered a nice place to relax and cool off. The water temp in the pools was perfect. I do not know how they do it, but, the water was always cool and refreshing despite the simmering temps outside. This property is currently updating the rooms however, we did not notice any noise or problems with this. The condo we had was fully equipped with everything you would need except for your groceries. This included laundry detergent for one load of clothes and dish/dishwasher detergent. Shopping is nearby and cabs are readily available. There are free shuttles direct from this property to the strip hotels and you are provided with a timetable for all shuttles. There really is no need for a rental car unless you desire to take a trip outside the city to Hoover Dam or Red Rocks. You can also take escorted bus tours to these locations from ticket locations on the strip. If you desire to see shows, go to the tickets 4 today kiosks located around the strip for discounted prices on shows and restaurants, Nice little restaurant on property by the front main pool. Convenient for all meals and reasonably priced. Employees were extremely helpful and pleasant. They will even pick you up at your building if you need a ride to the front of property, The response time was immediate! We were in the very rear of the property. No great views, but you could see the mountain range at a distance. There is construction across the street on the front side of building (no noises detected) where there will be new shopping and a large Ferris wheel is being built similar to the London Eye. It is supposed to ready at the end of 2013-early2014. We recommend the Desert Club highly.

Room Tip: Try to secure a room toward the front of facility for a short distance walk to pick up the shuttle o...

Just like being at home. Beautiful 2 bedroom apartment with all the amenities. Full kitchen, washer and dryer. Granite counter tops. Everything! This resort has 3 story units which gives it a cozy feeling, not like those giant hotels. Our unit was steps away from one of the many pools. It even has an outdoor grill.
Our two year old granddaughter got ill and threw up on the couch. Within minutes of calling housekeeping, someoneone was at the door to take away the soiled coushions and give us replacements. They had real compasion for our granddaughter.

Room Tip: All rooms are fantastic. Get one on the ground floor if you have trouble climbing stairs.

This place is like home away from home! After being NICKLE & DIMED in LA, this place is heaven! If you have a family, friends or extended family, THIS is the place for you! FREE PARKING, FREE WIFI, FRIENDLY STAFF, BRAND NEW ROOMS, HD FLAT SCREEN TVS, COMFY BEDS, HUGE TUBS, IN VILLA LAUNDRY, POOLS in every complex, COMPLIMENTARY DVD RENTALS.. What else do you want people? Yes, we've been burned by time-sales pitches so we knew to politely decline. The lady was nice enough and did push a tad, but all you have to say is NO. STAIRS? Yes, if you are older, handi-capable, you may need to request a lower floor. We saw many older couples on the first level. Oh, and guess what? Bellman will BRING YOUR BAGS to your room for you? Cost a buck or two? Yes, it's a simple tip for the workout. AC units can be a tad noisy. They are older, but the advantages far out weigh the minor issues. We noticed the 2nd bed/bath that was nearer the AC unit was MUCH colder than our master (at the far end of the unit). What do you do? Close off the vent to the colder room and make the master vent is open all the way.

Onward to other great things. Complimentary DVD's brand new cook wear and appliances. A maid came by daily to refill toiletries, make the beds, empty trash, change out towels. Did she mop, vacuum or do the dishes? NO, and that is OK. If you are used to staying in vacation villas this is very common practice. In fact, the fact we had someone come by to do these things daily was a first! We are used to staying at HILTON VACATION CLUBS (similar setups), and unless you call for things you need they never come by to check on you. So this was a huge PLUS! :) --- Marketplace has many great things to purchase for your villa. Yes, they are expensive. It costs them money to go and get these to bring them to you. If you spend $75 or more, the local VONS store will deliver them to your villa for FREE!

The on-site "grill" was a huge mess. Only one waitress who clearly has not done this long was overwhelmed. The food seems all pre-cooked like Sysco products. Expect pool bar food to sustain you, not necessarily nourish, and you won't be disappointed. There was another lady there who was dressed like management and I would have been impressed if she was actually helping. She mostly stood by the cash register. On nights that busy, that lady needed to be busting some you -know-what to keep everyone happy. Let's just say, it was awful service, bad food (i didn't know what to expect) and we didn't go back.

I didn't use the work out facility so can't comment, but so far, I'm super pleased and will def be back. I took advantage of a 5 night special and only paid $125/nt for my 2 bedroom. Crazy amazing!

OH, and the shuttle service was fine. It works if you don't want to walk. Also, the complex is huge but the golf cart people are constantly running around offering rides.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room, pool side for great views. Yes, no elevator. Higher floors have less A/C n...

We used this as a time-share exchange and it was one of our best! Beautiful 2 bedroom unit with all the amenities, 4 pools to choose from, very friendly helpful staff and, best of all, we could walk to the Strip. We did the time-share pitch to get tickets to a show and were out in 1 hour exactly - although they were not too happy with us. Fabulous place if you have kids with you.

Room Tip: Away from Koval road and away from the construction

What a first impression! Before booking, I read the reviews on this place and thought it fit the bill for a couples group trip. It's off the Strip but that was a non-issue due to the free shuttle, inexpensive cab ride or a relatively short walk (10-15 minutes). We booked the 2 BR suite for the refundable rate of $189 per night. Before our arrival I called ahead to schedule an early check in and the staff person was more than accommodating. During the call, she informed that there were two types of 2 BR suites. We opted for the 2 bedroom 2 bath, which for the price, was awesome! I also requested a room near the front of the property which turned out to be a big plus, because it was close to the main pool and lobby (shuttle/cab pickups). The rooms are updated, spacious and have everything you need to feel at home. This is not your typical Holiday Inn. These are fully appointed condos we are talking about! Aside from normal carpet spots and bird poop on the balcony rail, the room was clean. This is a beautiful property, I hope they continue to renovate, starting with the sofa (sofa bed was lousy). Due to renovations, we didn't get to use the indoor spa :( but we settled for the outdoor jacuzzi. Did I mention this place has FREE hassle free covered parking? One last thing, you will most likely be propositioned with a time share offer, post check-in. Consider yourself warned. That aside, we would definitely stay here again!!! RECOMMENDED!!!

Room Tip: For ease of access, opt for a room close to the front of the property

This hotel is just a block off The Strip, and for $179 a night, we got 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, kitchen, dining room, living room, balcony AND a little laundry room! The only dark cloud was the lady who tried to get us to sit in on a sales pitch for time shares. She wouldn't take "no" for an answer, and I'm afraid that I had to be rude in order to get our keys. The rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The little restaurant is adequate if you don't have the energy to go elsewhere, and the subterranean grocery store is well stocked for emergencies. There are big grocery stores within a couple of miles, and being able to self-cater for breakfasts and lunches is a huge money saver. The pools were fun, and the parking is free. There are no elevators, so bear that in mind if you can't use stairs. We were delighted with this hotel :)

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the complex are quieter.

What a lovely hotel. The apartment was beautifully spacious and clean and had everything we required for our stay. It's close proximity to the strip was an added bonus, and their regular shuttle to the strip was most useful. The staff were friendly and willing to assist with all our requirements. Thank you for making our stay such an amazing experience.
