Let me begin by saying that the general atmosphere was very lovely. The suites have nice views overlooking the golf course with mountains in the background. We chose a two bedroom one to be on the ground level.
However, people renting there should be aware of a few drawbacks. Firstly, we were surprised to find out that there was no laundry in the entire complex. We are used to there being a community washer/dryer, if not one in each unit. We specifically made this choice instead of the less expensive hotel room, thinking we would have such a facility available to us.
Secondly, while they advertise a kitchen, in fact it falls short of that. There was a two burner cook top and a microwave.....no oven. I must say that there was a full size dishwasher and the dishes, utencils, and pots and pans, etc. However, the ad for the suite led one to believe that it was a full kitchen.
Thirdly, the basic items that are usually available when you rent a place with a 'kitchen', such a sponge, small amount of dishwashing liquid, etc. were not there. If you rent this place you must bring every such item with you. When we complained, we were given a 'complimentary' kit with mini-versions of such items. Although it said that it was free on the outside of this little kit, they billed us nearly ten dollars for it! We stood our ground and they did remove the charge.
Also, please note that while they advertise their gym and spa, it is not included it the rate and comes with a very hugh price tag.
We would not choose this accomodation the next time we are in the area. Better to stay at a nice hotel and eat out! It was not worth the money. Also, we were there at a quiet time of year. In-season, it has the potential to be noisy and crowded.
