With the start of my 8 year old son's spring break, this was the perfect time to get away for a little skiing. The Delta Sun Peaks offered a great base for a couple of days of fun. With the start of spring break we anticiapated crowds but were pleasantly surprised by how few people were at the resort... good for us - great service and no lift lines! Hopefully the resorts will push through the slow economy and come out in the future stronger.
Arriving at night it was a little difficult to locate the front desk driving into the resort. Fortunatley having been to Sun Peaks in the past we were somewhat familiar with the location on the slopes but not driving. If you are driving here for the first time, check your directions. Note there is very little above ground parking around the lobby entrance - and with recent snow/thaw weather the driveway and sidewalks were very icy and uneven.
Check-in was friendly and professional.
At the Health Club our family took advantage of the pool and one of the three hot tubs as well as the sauna. Note that while we were here, the hot tub closest to the doors had jet problems with one very powerful jet and barely noticeable trickle from the others. The sauna was ok, but the floor needed cleaning - tiles and grout needed a good scrubbing.
Our room with 2 doubles was clean and comfortable, and a decent size. Appointments were good.
Breakfast at Mantles restaurant was not spectacular but good food at reasonable prices for this type of resort. The days we stayed there were two buffet options in addition to the standard menu.
Parking.... underground parking - reasonable price ($13/night to park your own car or $17 for valet). Do note that as is common in this type of resort, the parking stalls are quite small. this trip we had a small-mid sized car and there were about 6 inches on each side to open doors assuming people don't double park - which is the norm apparently as an SUV doesn't stand a chance of fitting within the confines of the marked stalls. 7ft clearance so taller vehicles with roof top ski rack may be stuck with limited outdoor parking (still $13/night).
Ski valet - handy valet/tuning shop in the hotel - seems to be a 3rd party leasee. Staff were somewhat helpful but didn't go over the top - not up to Delta standard.
Overall the Delta staff were all very friendly and helpful from front desk to restaurant, as well as housekeepers greeting you in the hall.
I appreciated the complimentary Globe & Mail in the morning.
It is becoming exceedingly rare, but this is resort still charges for in-room wireless service. The lobby areas are very popular spots for people with their notebooks, pads, and other devices catching the free service. Perhaps management should consider TripAdvisor recommendations re most popular amenities which include complimentry Wi-Fi.
Overall we had a great stay and would recommend this resort hotel for future visits.
