After 15 wonderful years of timeshare ownership at Fairmont Hot Springs, BC, now known as Sunchaser Vacation Villas (SVV), in 2013 things changed for the worse leaving a terrible dark cloud over what was once a shining star in our album of favorite family vacations. Back in mid-1997 we bought a gold annual 2 bedroom lock-off. We paid our maintenance...

we purchased into this resort with promises of affordable vacations. When the current management took over, it turned into a nightmare that was anything but affordable. the maintenance fee increased exponentially and they decided to unilaterally change the wording of the contracts to allow them to charge whatever fee they wanted and and when we wanted to give up our...

We bought into this resort in 2000 and loved it for many years. Unfortunately the resort was mismanaged and taken over by new owners. Since then, the resort has not been maintained and to top it off the new owners are trying to drive out current leasees by charging crazy high fees and when they refuse to pay, they are...

We visited BC in the fall, and Sunchaser Villas is a great place to stay. We were traveling with another couple so had requested a two-bedroom condo (RCI/Interval International condo exchange). We were thrilled to discover that for this property, that meant two individual units with a common outer door. We had lots of room for everyone! The rooms were...

The location of this resort is the best - beautiful, clean, & relaxing. However, new management has taken over and they do not seem to be keeping up the maintenance and past standards. This management seems to want to shrink the resort while putting all of the costs on current owners (and not shouldering their share of the costs for...

Spent 4 days here, was close to everywhere in Fairmont, rooms were nice, maid service was loud one morning. Bed was very comfortable, room well stocked. I would stay here again. Views were great of the mountains!

Accommodations are ok at best. A side is spacious enough with a nice enough view. B side is probably what you'll get though.....not spacious or laid out well at all. You can sit on your "patio" and enjoy the view of the parking lot & playground - no thank you.

Since the new ownership, the management of this resort is lacking and thus the resort is diminished in vibrancy and maintenance. It is a shame, considering it was once a Five Star Resort on the II exchange program. The facilities were lacking and lacking in noticeable maintenance, but the beautiful Rocky Mountain location amidst the beauty of the golf courses...

We were given a one bedroom kitchenette. The balcony overlooked the 10th green, so needless to say the entertainment never ended. The room had everything that we could have wanted. And it was so comfortable. The views are amazing. The service when we checked in was amazing and they made us feel right at home.
