Stayed here in February 2014 and really enjoyed it! The apartments are fantastic. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. My wife and I noticed it was the little touches that really added to the stay. The kitchen had serving dishes and table decorations in case you wanted to host some friends. The patio is great and the view is the best around. The fireplace was really nice and the bed was mega comfy. The only complaint is the location is slightly off the beaten path. The bridge is convenient and walking into Lionshead is easy, but does take about 15 minutes. Sometimes after a day on the mountain I kind of dreaded that walk. But, for the apartment, it is a great value considering a hotel in Lionshead can cost 2x as much. Overall we'll definitely stay here again. The apartment was amazing and the staff was extremely friendly, so the walk to town is a small price to pay for such a great place and such amazing views of the mountain.

My husband and I stayed at Sun Vail for 5 days in early February. The condo was fantastic! It was tastefully decorated with a lodge-type feel, but not crappy, tacky lodge. The kitchen was very nice and had a lot of dishes and pots & pans. While there was salt and pepper, we would have appreciated some cooking spray and/or oil. The shower in the master bath let out a lot of water from the faucet when you tried to shower, so we actually just used the other shower the whole time. This worked for us as the other shower was super nice. We did inform management about this problem. We found the master bed very hard, but after the initial surprise, it never bothered us for sleeping. We turned on the gas fireplace every evening and loved the stone surround. The hot tubs, pool, and sauna were put to use every day after skiing and you can't beat the short walk across the bridge to ski each morning. We highly recommend Sun Vail. This is the second year in a row my brother and his friends have stayed there. We're planning to make it our place of choice as well and will be back next year!

We stayed a few days & booked a condo in block A - not disappointed. Easy walking distance to lionshead, spacious if not eclectic apartment with heaps of space, 2 bathrooms & wonderful kitchen. Bath was the only disappointment - it didnt fill more than 4 fingers deep. Wifi in the building & ski locker in lionshead was huge plus. Highly recommended.

For our family ski trip to Vail, we spent a wonderful week staying in affordable comfort at the Sun Vail Condos. It was just a short 5 - 10 minute walk over the pedestrian bridge over the I-70 freeway. We carried our boots back & forth and made use of the ski lockers in the Village, which worked just great. The hot tubs felt great at the end of the ski day, but were sometimes monopolized by some guests, which can happen anywhere. Our family will definitely consider another stay at Sun Vail Condominiums!

Room Tip: Building A is closet to the Pedestrian Bridge, then B, C, D & F.

My sons and I spent a week at Sun Vail and it was ideal in every way. It was convenient to Lions Head Lift (it took us just 5 minutes to walk over the pedestrian bridge). The condo was very clean, amply stocked with everything we needed, and very quiet. Oh, and did I mention the heated bathroom floors (gotta get some of those at home!). The staff was very cordial and helpful. Absolutely no reason not to go back!

My friends and myself have been staying at Sun Vail for the past 2 years and we have enjoyed the stay both times. With the quick walk to lions head village and the ski locker at the base of the mountain it is great for getting on and off the mountain. The pool and jacuzzi area always feels good after being on the slopes all day , and the room were both clean and very roomy.

We loved staying at this great condo, just over the pedestrian bridge from Lionshead (1/4 mile walk). We liked having the balance of convenience plus getting away from the hustle bustle of the village. It was luxurious and cozy and had fantastic views of the mountain. The units were very well appointed and the management was extremely helpful. We just booked another trip at Sun Vail today!

Room Tip: Ask if you need any special requirements, such as sleeping setup in the 2nd bedroom. We did and the...
