Perfect quiet getaway
Great short getaway from the LA hustle. It was quiet, relaxing and beautiful grounds. Staff was friendly and the accommodations were very clean and comfortable. There are no food amenities, but a plaza across the the way with restaurants and a grocery store. They ya e a great bar b a area and plenty of pools to choose from. Will come back again!

Loved it, loved it, loved it!
Came down to visit family and have stayed at a couple of places around this area. Hands down this is the best place I have ever stayed and I hope I can stay again! It is a little confusing understanding where you need to go to check in but once you figure that out, you are good to go. The facilities are amazing, there is so much to do and the grounds are beautifully taken care of. The room is an apartment and ours had a patio area before you actually got to your room which was very nice. It was just a little too hot to hang there but would be great when it is cooler. The only other thing is there are these bugs that come out at night and make a funny noise, they scared my sister half to death. They are completely harmless and not sure if they only come out when the weather is hot. Otherwise, loved it and hope to stay again!!

Didn’t know it was a time share. It didn’t matter. The room was great. The pool, there were four, but we only went to the one by our room, was almost empty. Very nice. Weight room was adequate for weights plus cardio equipment.
