Nice place. Our villa was in great shape, but they did forget to stock a couple standard items...a short phone call to the check-in desk solved that. The resort grounds are well kept up. Lots of covered parking.

There are a couple pools areas to cool down in during the hot summer months. But they are pretty crowded...I assume because the kids are on summer break. Maybe it's not as bad the rest of the year, I hope. There is also a recreation center for the kids here. They have both kid's activities and adult activities throughout the week...so take your pick!

The only weird thing that happened to us...a dying rat parked itself on our door threshold. We called the front desk to come remove it while it was still alive.

I'd like to come back here again some day.

Cali is hot, OMG, i was not prepared for this heat!

I spent a week here and with the exception of 1 "activity" it was fantastic!! The property is beautiful, the villas are outstanding, and the staff (the ones I've had the pleasure of interacting with) have all been great! I would definitely come back.

We booked a two bedroom villa on one of the hottest weekends. Before the trip, I received a call from their pre arrival staff, to ask me my room preference. They gave a heads up that there is no elevator. They also asked if we want to be near a pool. Checking in was a breeze. Front desk were efficient and very friendly. They made us feel at home right away. The unit is very spacious, the kitchen is complete with all the utensils, etc. The ac broke one afternoon because it was too hot. Maintenance came right away and fixed it right away. Front desk followed up if everything got resolved. There are plenty of activities in the complex.
We would definitely come back here.

I have stayed at this property many times in the past. I was there for work this time, so I didn't need a full kitchen and decided to try the studio lockout. They are remodeling Villas I and I asked for a remodeled room. The biggest improvement is the new kitchenette. There is now a full size refrigerator. So with BBQ located downstairs, blender, coffee maker, toaster. I was all set. In addition the remodel has night stands with motion detection led base lights so you won't trip over things in the dark.

Room Tip: Room on the ends have balconies facing the golf course. Rooms in the middle have balconies facing the parking lot

The resort is beautiful and first class all the way we had a two bedroom to Bath condo and everything you could possibly want the pools are nice there's a small one in the middle of the complex it's very private and quiet for those that want to read and not talk the large pool and eating area is great for families there's a Grill & Bar for adults and children there is a shuttle that takes you around to the pool area at different stations in the complex as well as over to the hotel to enjoy dinner at any of the three restaurants there. I would definitely come back next year
