Enormous 1 bedroom suite.

Posted Apr 6, 2017
Location: Julian . . .
Larger than most two bedroom condos. Unit spacious and well-maintained. Did not get the chance to use the facilities, but what we saw was pleasing.

The room was very large and had all amenities. The resort is in a beautiful location with hiking trails and wineries very close by.

Peaceful location

Posted Mar 19, 2017
Pros: Location, comfort and free WiFi.
Location: Explore towns of Ramona and Julian. Anza Borrego is quite a long drive. Many beautiful meadows and mountain canyons to explore, wineries & casino.
All units seem to have a nice view with balcony or patio. Resort is quiet and beds are very comfortable.

Very nice place

Posted Mar 13, 2017
After reading other reviews, I wasn't really sure what to expect. We checked in, the staff was extremely welcoming and accommodating. Parking was a breeze and we were able to park just steps away from our front door. The accommodations were huge, clean and modern. I was expecting an average hotel room and would have been happy with that but I was actually pretty shocked at the size and quality of our accommodations. While it was far more than what we needed, it was still a pleasant surprise.

This is a nice quiet resort up in the mountains,

Posted Mar 7, 2017
Pros: We enjoy the quiet peacefulness of the surrounding mountains there is not very much traffic and the swimming pool and spa are just perfect for us.
Cons: Keep it in the shape it now is!
Location: The location is quiet, and we do not participate in many activities. However there are quite a lot of activities in the area if a person wants to doS
This is our fourth year in staying at this resort, in fact we have always had the same unit. This unit is right by a park and it provides us with the comforts of home.

Great accomodation

Posted Feb 23, 2017
Pros: The location was peaceful and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Location: Ramona town is a few miles down the road. It's not a very exciting place to visit, but good for food shopping, restaurants and countless antique shops
We found the amenities and room exceeded our expectations. Relaxing around the pool, playing tennis, golf,hiking; all easily accessible.

Wonderful hotel with great amenities

Posted Feb 19, 2017
Pros: We loved our room overlooking the swimming pool with its large balcony.
Location: We stayed a few days and then went on to visit Julian and Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.
We enjoy playing tennis and golf and trekking. This hotel was perfectly located for all three.

Wonderful Condo near San Diego

Posted Jan 28, 2017
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Only wish it was closer to the beach and the local State Park.
