Reviewed 17 August 2016 via mobile

The amenities- pools, spa exercise room, common rooms were very good. We had a studio with queen bed and mini kitchen which was fine since we did not cook or eat in. The room was a little small but the bathroom was good size. The only criticism was the lighting was insufficient in the bedroom despite a large window.

We used up all of our points for a nice summer get away here and booked months in advance with a request to be close to the kids area. We ended up with a room that looked nothing like what they show you during the sales pitch. It was dark, dated and right by the side of the road where...

I have been a member of this resort for a long time, but since the management changed hands I wonder if the quality is slipping a bit. The last time I visited I noticed that the cleanliness was just a little wanting. Also a couple of the towels were slightly frayed and wearing thin. Once of the sheets was even...

This was our first trip to Embarc Whistler. We traded our time share through Interval International and received a two bedroom lock off in exchange.

Dear Kev1963, We thank you for your short, yet comprehensive review. I am certain it will be highly appreciated by the TripAdvisor community. I am sorry we could do too much to improve the weather.

We've been members of Club Intrawest at Whistler for many years, but have not stayed in this club location. We were leery of Diamond Resorts buying out Club Intrawest and turning the Whistler location into Embarc Whistler, but it doesn't seem that anything has really changes. Now another mega-firm has bought Diamond Resorts, so hard telling what will happen next....

We stayed at this establishment and it is in the upper village. The rooms are awesome, the bed comfortable, nice balcony and plenty of space. We have a functional kitchen, the farmers market was next to us and it is tiny walk to lost lake trails and the lower village.
