The unit was ok but a little tired .Very frustrated with the wi fi service. It was a time share switch, not up to the standard we are used to. Like I said before, it was ok. It was centrally located. That was a big plus!

A very important aspect of how you can enjoy this resort and many others in this area is the season that you go. In the desert southwest summer is the slow season since most people want a little less heat and so they go elsewhere. Thus, many venues have limited hours and the communities seem quiet and abandoned. On the... More
