It feels good to get back to a Marriott timeshare property.  You know what you are getting and you are getting consistency and class.  The grounds are beautiful the units are beautiful.  Everything is well maintained and the staff is professional.  What is not to like?  We have a two bedroom/ two bathroom unit which I achieved through an Interval International exchange.
The property is set in amongst the mountains and they are snow capped right now and very beautiful to look at.  We have wonderful views off of our two balconies and from all of our windows.  We have a large unit about 1200 square feet.  The kitchen has granite counters and we have 3 large flat screens tvs, a fireplace, dining room and large living room.  We have a washing machine and dryer and the second spare bedroom has an extra tiny kitchenette with granite and an extra couch.  There is free internet of good speed and wireless.  The workout facilities are top notch and there is a daily program for your family members.  The pools are beautiful as well.  I really can’t say a bad thing about the place, even the kitchen is well stocked and my mother in law made 2 pies from scratch and she had no problem baking in the kitchen.  There is a Walmart Supercentre to get groceries about a 2 minute drive down the road.  Every Marriott timeshare that we have stayed in has always had a well stocked kitchen and everything is fairly predictable and wonderful and it feels like coming home.
