“Definitely not a 5 Star”
Reviewed 6 July 2005

This resort falsely advertises as a 5 star resort. Our family traded a beautiful timeshare in Tennessee for our honeymoon stay. We visited the smallest unkempt room they could have possibly offered and stayed for 10 minutes before we left. Not a classy resort as advertised, and not worth the drive from lovely Banff. Set your expectations extraordinarily low if you are going to stay here.

Stayed June 2005

We are timeshare owners and go to Fairmont on a yearly basis and LOVE IT. We have never had anything to complain about. Weather is always good as is the golfing. Whether we go as a family or another couple..we have always had a great time.

Just returned from a week at Fairmont Hot Spings Villas--Riverside. Unit 410A--faces the river--nice view. This is a very well-built facility with lots of activities--golf and tennis on site, fishing, climbing, hiking, etc. BUT, I would only recommend you go if you have at least 4 children accompanying you since that was the average. You will think you are at an elementary school playground, with hundreds of kids yelling, running up and down the stairs, riding bikes, rollerbladeing, etc. Great for families; not so good for individuals or couples.
Two other concerns--no A/C. I'm sure that is not normally a problem, but with the sun staying up past 11 PM and the temps in the mid to upper 80's, it was hot. I'm from Phoenix and I know hot; this was hot. Also, bird ****--EVERYWHERE. They have a real problem and seem to do nothing about it. In the week we were there, they did not once clean up any of it and it was all over--every step and landing was covered, every wall was covered, every window was covered, every car was covered. So, in conclusion, if you don't mind walking through bird doo and you have lots of kids, you should love this place. Me, I'll pass.
