“February 2013 Ski Trip”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Perfect Location and Value for a great weekend getaway. We flew into Denver and its only a two hour shuttle ride through the mountains to Vail.

Our newly remodeled 2 bedroom 2 bath condo had new hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, and was immaculate. These condos are located immediately adjacent to the walk across the expressway - a short walk to your ski storage near the gondola. They also offer two hot tubs and a outdoor pool and a breathtaking view of the slopes each morning and evening.

We just made reservations for our third year return trip.

Sun Vail is perfect for a group trip to Summit County. The staff is great, and so is the unit. The rooms have plenty of space and the kitchen is fully equipped for full meal prep. You are about a five minute walk from Lionshead Village (or there's a free shuttle if you prefer) and a short drive down the frontage road to groceries. We also got free access to a locker in the village so we didn't have to drag skis back and forth. The place is perfect for relaxing after skiing with an outdoor pool, hot tubs, and a sauna. Plus there is no additional parking charge-a rarity in Vail so close to the mountain. The value is well worth staying across I-70 from the mountain and we'll keep coming back as long as we go to Vail!

Room Tip: Ground level units have open patios and higher units have decks.

This place was great. Facilities were well kept and only minutes walk to the Lionshead Gondola. Prices were very reasonable considering the proximity to the lifts. Nice outdoor heated pool and hottub. The condo's were updated seeming brand new. Will definitely stay again.

Sun Vail is easily the best location for the price in Vail. We usually go for the pre holiday rates (mid December) to get the best snow for the price. Easy walking distance from the gondola and Born free lifts. The pool are is excellent and has a beautiful view day or night. The proximity to the highway really does not bother me because the condos are so easy to get to from the highway with grocery and other stores right down the street. Vail village is still only walking distance. Extra public parking is available on that side of the highway and the Sun Vail staff is helpful and easy going. The room we say in is great, clean, fireplace, plenty of room and well kept/updated. All these thing keep us coming back for three years in a row now!

My family stayed in unit 24A, a 3 bedroom unit, at Sun Vail for our first ski trip to Vail. The unit had good size bedrooms and living area for the 5 adults and 2 children that made the trip. The best feature of the place was the location. While being on the opposite side of the interstate is not the most ideal location, there was a pedestrian bridge 100 ft out of the unit that dumps you right in the heart of Lionshead Village. An update of the decor and finishing would make this a 5 star value.

Sun Vail was just what we needed for our 2 week family vacation. The onsite manager was super nice! The location right over the ped. bridge to Lionshead--it was so fun to bike over with our 2 kids. The noise from I-70 was loud, but it was summer so we had our windows open a lot. The condo was very updated and modern and the kitchen had everything we needed. We are coming back over the holidays. Can't wait!

Our family loved every minute of our vacation. Will definitely go back. Condo was nice and clean and furnishings were comfortable. We loved the pool and hot tub. Location was excellent, too. I have no idea of this person named Dale mentioned in one of the reviews, but we found the staff to be quite customer oriented and they gained our trust with all of the help they offered.
