Lots of things to do for all ages--golf, tennis,basketball court, playgrounds, several pools, wading pool, water features for children, movies and activity center. The grounds were beautiful. The suite had a kitchen that was nicely equipped. The beds were very comfortable and the bedding was luxurious. The staff was top notch! We went to a wine & to the beer...

If you love tennis, this is your place. The pool is nice too. Best of all, this is a SUPER kid friendly place. And better yet, the staff is fantastic---some of the friendliest and happiest I've ever encountered. Sure, the buildings may be a little older, but the charm and "function" of the resort makes up for that.

We so appreciate your mention of our friendly staff, many have been with us for a couple decades, in fact. That it the greatest compliment! Families are welcome here, and there's plenty of room for all ages to swim, play tennis and just lounge. Hope you can make it back again soon.

We stayed here a few days last month. It is a beautiful place to stay. The grounds are immaculate. The only thing they could improve on is the walking trails...they don't connect. The rooms are high quality and easy to access and the views from the balcony are amazing with the mountains in the west.
