I waited a while to write this review because I seem to be the only one who thinks this place is sub par. First off, their website boasts mini golf-let me tell you, the mini golf is nothing more than a piece of fake grass with a few bricks on it-very small. And the pool, maybe six adults could fit in it. Very small. The basketball hoop was broke, the cement that it sits on was broken up and dangerous to run on. The photos on the website are VERY deceiving! It shows a beautiful picture of green lush grass and beautiful landscaping-not true. In some parts of the resort, the weeds and grass were up to our knees. The driveways throughout the resorts are full of ruts and potholes-we fell in a pothole turning a corner and broke a piece off of our vehicle. There are sticks and limbs that have fallen down that no one bothers to pick up. Weeds growing up in all of the landscaping. And the hot tub that came with our cabin-what a joke! It was a round rubber kiddie pool type thing that could hold two adults at best. And it was filthy. I read the reviews over and over before spending $1000 to stay here for four nights. I just do not see what the others are seeing. We could have stayed in a luxury hotel for those prices. My three teenagers were bored out of their minds here and were very disappointed since the website showed so many fun activities that really didn't exist. Also, our cabin was so hot with no central air. I don't know if that is normal in CO to not have air, but it was miserable trying to sleep at night. I would not recommend this resort to anyone with kids. It was our worst vacation we have ever taken due to the disappointment over this resort. We even left a day early and wasted a paid night because we were so bored. Needs major updating and a realistic photo on their website.
