    Away from the glitz and noise of the Strip, yet still close enough to feel part of the action, the Wyndham Grand Desert is a perfect family vacation destination. This timeshare resort offers one- and two-bedroom accommodations complete with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, air conditioning, and wireless Internet. One-bedroom units feature a king-size bed in the bedroom and a full-size sleeper sofa in the living area. Two-bedroom units feature a king-size bed in the master bedroom, a queen or two twins in the guest bedroom, and a full-size sleeper sofa in the living area.

    Family-friendly accommodations don't stop at the rooms at the Wyndham Grand Desert. This resort offers three outdoor swimming pools, one for kids and one exclusively for adults. Enjoy a night of dive-in movies by the pool, poolside bingo, a magic show, or kid's camp. For the adults, Fairfield offers a black jack tournament, gaming lessons, and discount prices at the Callaway golf driving range. Additional on-site amenities include four outdoor hot tubs, a game room, masseuse, and exercise facility.

    Only in Vegas can you take a gondola ride in Venice, board a roller coaster in New York, go to the top of Paris's Eiffel Tower, or visit the pyramids of Egypt, all without leaving the Strip. Of course, you can also try your luck at any of the casinos, or enjoy a wide array of live entertainment and exceptional restaurants.

    Formerly known as Fairfield Grand Desert.

      Location! Location! Location! This resort is close to the strip so if you want to gamble this your home away from home. The staff are friendly, and have the answers to your entertainment options! Just ask!,, The pools were clean and have lifeguards on duty! Overall, a good Wyndham timeshare! I would recommend adding a full kitchen to your reservation for keeping your beverages cold and the spa in the master bedroom.

      This is our home resort and we love it! We were there in May for 3 nights and then again two weeks ago ( august 22 - 27). Love everything about the place. I especially enjoy the attending the owners update - we learned a few things new and of course enjoy the breakfast and $75.00 in food vouchers or you can chose show tickets. I think the breakfast and food tickets.. at least $45.00 should be a regular perk for owners. Nonetheless, I love the place. There daily water exercise is great. However, water aerobics class should be offered more than just once or twice a week.. 3 times a week if not daily as well as water walk. I cant think of the young ladys name she was awesome. I remember she indicated she was pursuring a degree in special education. The class was great and def a change up from my regular gym workout.. i was sore the next morning. Thumbs up! There were about 13 of us in the class all ages, we all enjoyed it and talked about hooking up again for the class the next morning but it wasnt offered. Love the shuttle service to Harrahs. Oh, you gotta go and try the oyster bar on the first floor in the Harrah's. Amazing fodd, great prices, and wonderful staff. Gold Star to Wyndham Grand Desert.

      We stayed at the end of April 2009. We found the staff courteous and helpful. Suites were clean and well kept . The only issue was a noise in the closet of the master bedroom which tended to be louder at night. It was resolved when the concern was brought to the staff's attention. We made daily use of the bus shuttle and considered it was bonus when we were making our choice of where to stay along with the free internet service. Overall enjoy our stay and we would definitely return.

      We just got back from Vegas and this resort was amazing. It is great if you are traveling with kids. There is a huge activities room with the Wii, Xbox, air hockey, board games, a computer, and a big screen TV. The pool is OK, no slides or anything. The staff is wonderful. You are about 2 blocks off the strip. There's a Wal-Mart nearby for food and souvenir shopping. You are centrally located to everything. Would definitely stay here again!!!

      I would give this resort a 4 & 1/2 stars... the location is excellent, convenient to everything. We aren't owners, but had a 2 bdrm deluxe unit for our rental and it was immaculate. We had an issue with a dishwasher knob, but they were very prompt to fix. Staff treated us like we were owners, which was nice. This unit was such an excellent bargain... I would not ever go back to a Vegas hotel room. The comfort, quality of beds & bedding, and just everything about the place was high end. Loved it. Will definitely go back!

      WE STAYED at THE RESORT TWICE, AND REALY ENJOYED IT. I HIGHLY RECOMEND IT. IT IS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF THE STRIP AND VERY HANDY TO A LOT OF PLACES. WE ENJOYED THE POOL, AND THE WORKOUT ROOMS ALSO.

      THE PERSONAL COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE PLEASANT TO DEAL WITH.

      TRY IT-YOU WILL ENJOY IT! WE HAD A 2 BEDROOM W/LOCKOFF, BECAUSE BOTH TIMES WE HAD TWO COUPLES. IT WAS PRIVATE, BUT ALSO WE COULD ENJOY EACH COUPLES COMPANY AT THE SAME TIME.

      Spent sunday through friday in a 1 bdr std tower 3. Its the stand alone tower. First time at TS resort. Impressed with property and staff, who were always pleasent. The shuttle only goes to Harrahs and stops at 10pm. Sun worshipping is a challenge. Family pool is in direct sun from 9a-2p. Then its total shade after 2:30. Adult upper pools starts getting sun 11:30-4:15. tower 3 gets sun from sunrise to 2:30, partial after that. Of the 4 hot tubs only 2 were 100% for the week. 3rd was jet free for 2 days, then its heater failed. Tower 3 hot tub had a heater failure 2 weeks earlier, but was down my entire visit. Didn't attend the 90min sales, but am considering buying. With Wyndham buyout It might be worth it on a redweek listing. :-)

      Oh: tower 1 is southern building. Tower 2 fronts Harmon, Tower 3 closest to Koval.

      We were in Las Vegas July 22- 27th and our rental was wonderful and the staff were very helpful and pleasent. We had an issue with the washer and they fixed it immediately. The room was spacious, clean and very inviting. It was a great place just a few blocks off of the strip and it was perfect for families. We will definately book a condo at this resort again next year when we return for the Super 64 Boys High School Basketball Tourney.

      We stay at the Fairfield in July 15-20. The resort was very close to what the pictures show. We did a some minor issues with the room but after a call to the front desk everything was fixed in less than an hour. The staff work around the clock keeping things neat and clean. Also, they are available for anything that you might need. Finally, even though this property has been sold the new owners are working very hard to maintain the property and customer service. I would stay there again if I ever went back to Vegas.

      I purchased at this property and closed in Nov. However, Fairfield did not finish processing me as the new owner until March. Some of the points with my purchase did not transfer, so the sellers made a one week reservation for me as a guest with the non- transferrable points. We enjoyed our stay. Buyer beware...you will be asked to meet with someone to survey if the facility is meeting your needs. Too good to me true...it's a sales pitch. I received a verbal hand smacking for purchasing outside Fairfield. Obviously, I got a great deal! Do not buy into the suppliments. 154,000 points and you are good to go. Rent weeks off REdWeek if you want a longer stay.

      Although my wife and I have stayed here on two previous occassions in year's past , as RENTERS from a Fairfield Grand Desert owner through RedWeek.com, we jumped at the opportunity to PURCHASE a 105,000 point deed from a different owner earlier this year on ebay for a fraction of what the sales presentation tour price that was quoted to us. ($2,000 on ebay vs $16,000 sales pitch)

      This week is our first week's stay at Grand Desert as owners and we could not be any happier with our choice. This is a wonderful resort with lots of amenities and the staff has been very helpful and courteous under the new owner of Wyndham. While 105,00 points isn't a lot .... it's nice to know that should we decide to come back again after our 105k points are used up .... we can always rent another week from an owner at Grand Desert for around $100 per night or less for a one bedroom deluxe, without the burden of paying additional maintenance fees. Sort of like having one's cake and eating it too!!!

      Thank you RedWeek!!

      rooms were not as nice as i thought they would be, furnishings need to be either cleaned or replaced, the room smelled of old fried fish and after calling the desk 3 times the answer was to give us a can of airfreshener, that isnt the way 4.5 star resorts would handle that. it took almost 6 hours before that was even offered, the kitchen cupboard door was falling off and 3 people said they were coming up to fix it but no one did, the linens were very ratty, torn and very dingy and there was a nasty cleaning rag left on our bed..again not a 4.5 star resort, the pool was nice and it was very quiet there, about 10 minutes to strip, I would say the resort all in all was nice but the staff was not very attentive and did not follow through with simple requests, I would rate this a 3 star resort...

      Stayed for two weeks (April 19-May 4th) in a one bed room apartment. First week was an RCI trade and the second week purchased through RED Week.

      Prior to checking I contacted the resort to ensure that two booking swcould be linked a a single room assigned for the full stay. While I couldn't do that I was told that they could / would do it on checkin. Indeed this was arranged after getting a manager to do all the necessary computer mangling on check-in. I have had experiences with this at other resorts, usually finding that at the end of the first week that keys stop working and the staff are knocking on the doors and ringing up to find out why we are leaving. This time everything worked.

      We had a great view of the strip from the Stratosphere to Planet Hollywood. Could see (but not hear) the planes landing at the airport.

      Under tower parking was easy and convenient as was the location. No more than 10-15 minutes to any strip location even during heavy traffic.

      Pool area was pleasant and well maintained as was most of the resort areas that I visited.

      Room and service were haphazard. We didn't get a mid week service in the second week and three out of the four lights in the bed room didn't work. We weren't there enough for it really matter but shows a lack of care and checking. Unit was clean for our arrival.

      One bedroom units have poor living room design. The TV cabinet doors don't slide into the cabinet and can't be folded back because of the table location and a light fitting. Frustrating if you want to use the table and watch TV.

      Kitchen was well equiped but waste disposal unit didn't seem to work...or maybe it didn't have one?

      Would stay here again. Good value for money given the accomodation location and quality.

      First point - this is now a Wyndham NOT a Fairfield. Fairfield has sold out to Wyndham along with RCI and Trendwest, as we were told upon check-in.

      We are at the resort as I write this and we would probably NOT return to this resort. While the accommodations are spacious the finish is not what I would have expected. With Fairfield selling out I feel that they did not maintain the units as they would have had they been planning on keeping the resort. Drawers and counters were stained. Formica conters in kitchen in baths should be replaced with minimum Corian, better with granite. Pools only get sun at high noon due to being surrounded by buildings. If you are a sunworshipper, while the pools are nice, they do not get much sun. Activities on site are good, location is good, but the majority of the staff has a poor attitude. Check in took forever and aftger checking in they make you stand in another line for your "Welcome Pack" (razors and gum) and then they pressure you into a tour to again pressure youi into a purchase. I do own a Disney timeshare and I would never consider one here. Internet was a joke. We had to "sign up" ($19.95 FOR 3 DAYS) 3 times and had to call back every time we wanted to use it as it would "loose" our log on info. Housekeeping was sub par (hair on bathroom floors, stains on counters, drawers). We also had a security issue. While watching TV one evening we heard someone outside our door trying to get in with a key. After a few attempts the womona walked into our room and apologized quickly and walked out. I immediately called security and they recoded our keys and claimed that our door must not have been properly closed and the woman must have just mistakenly walked in. My husband and I both heard the woman trying a few keys before she gained access so be aware and place valuables at the front desk. While we might consider this place for a more reasonable rate, at $250 per night I would stay at a strip hotel instead.

      Just returned from a 7 night stay at this resort. It was the first time we stayed at a timeshare. It was fabulous! The Grand Desert was clean, we had a 2 bedroom and it was very spacious. We have 3 small children and there were various activities for the kids. The pools were excellent. Location was a great! We lived in Vegas for 4 years, so we knew the location would be great. Either a 10 minute walk or a 2 minute drive to the strip.

      This was one of our best family vacations due in large part with the accommodations. We will absolutely stay at the Grand Desert the next time we visit Vegas!

      I vacationed at the Grand Desert in Sept. 2006 for 5 days. It was great. The resort is one of my favorites and this is my 3rd visit to Vegas. I've stayed at the Resort twice. While there, I even upgraded and purchased a deed at the Resort. I was very pleased and impressed with the service. The staff was friendly and helpful, the bell boy/girl assisted us with our luggage. The rooms were excellent, spacious, and clean. We had 2 units. One was a 3 bedroom and another unit was the 2 bedroom Presidential Suite with an awesome balcony. I have been so impressed with the overall Resort, that I brought my mom and my mother-in-law. We even took an excursion tour of the Hoover Dam which included a boat tour of Lake Meade, dinner was included in the package deal. I will definitely make this one of my yearly trips in the future. We even toured the other hotels/casinos daily by metro rail and cashed in on getting lots of free gifts. After visiting all the other hotels/casinos, it was nice to return to a nice, quiet, and smoke-free smell RESORT. I highly recommend this resort to all.

      Just returned from a week at the Grand Desert and stayed in Tower 3 (Torre) with a wonderful view of the strip! We are owners and returning for our 4th year. The resort is maintained beautifully and staff was excellent and responsive to any calls or requests. The business center was open every day with a staff person on hand to assist! No cost to use the computers (4 available!). Very nice gym on site but did not use.

      The resort is in a great location, right behind the MGM Grand. We ate at Ellis Island often (recommended by a staff person), although an older casino, the food was very reasonable, good, ample servings, and recommend the Caesar salad!!

      Pluses for the resort - love having a washer and dryer right in the unit, a welcome bag that included great gifts including toothpaste, the business center at no costs, and no noises heard at all from other units.

      Minus- the schuttle was running only every 30- 40 mins without a schedule. The weather was cold and in the mid 30s.

      A great place to stay. This is definitely one of our favorites!

      Great resort! No need for a car in Vegas when staying at Grand Desert. Shuttle bus runs to Harrah's (mid-strip) every 20 minutes.

      Activities department very efficient and helpful. Trips to the grocery store (where guests get a discount) exclude need for a car.

      Plenty of activities at the resort, plus outside trips for golf, Liberace Museum, Red Rocks Canyon, etc. Short walk to Ellis Island casino/resuarant for $4.99 steak dinner or breakfast for under $3. Ten minute walk to MGM Grand to catch the monorail.

      Great place to stay!!

      Nice rooms but staff helpfulness is hit-or- miss. We had to change rooms twice: the first time because we were given a room with the absolute longest walk possible (even though we specifically requested close to elevators for limited mobility reasons), the second time because wireless internet doesn't work on upper floors. If you need it, request a lower level unit. Bellmen were terrific! But Conceirge was most unhelpful and would have charged us triple for wheelchair rental if we had gone through him.

      We just returned from a 5 night stay. It was WONDERFUL! Check-in was a breeze. We were asked only once if we wanted to attend an informational meeting, which we said no to. Everything was so clean. We had a 2 bedroom unit in tower two that we shared with another couple and we had plenty of room. Our view wasn't the prettiest, ( we overlooked a parking lot across the street),but it was no big deal. After all, we were in VEGAS...so much more to do than hang around looking out our windows! We were surprised how close we were to the strip. It was only a 10 minute walk to The Aladdin. This is an absolutely beautiful resort and we would stay here again in a heartbeat!

      I stayed here in Jan. '06 for a week with two friends. We were in a three bedroom/3 bath penthouse in the new tower. It was absolutely beautiful!!! Our bedrooms overlooked a beautiful view of the strip. I got up three times during the 1st night just to look out the window. We had a fireplace in the living room and a very large kitchen (cherry cabinets, I think) with granite counter tops and double door refrigerator, also with cherry wood inserts. Dining room table seats about 10. The entrance hall had a closet large enough for many many items. We used the limo (we're platnum) almost every day, including trips to and from the airport. The resort runs a van to a nearby grocery store several times each morning and the shuttle to Harrah's was very convenient. The congciere staff was very helpful. We didn't participate in many of the on-site activities as we had other things of interest. We did attend breakfast on the 1st morning. The limo drivers were very cordial and accommodating. Of course, you are expected to tip the drivers. We also used cabs to come back to the timeshare several evenings, which were readily available. We had a wonderful week and will definitely return. We are Fairfield owners here and at several other Fairfield properties. We have had wonderful experiences with Fairfield and are happy owners.

      My only dislike was when we changed rooms and leave our bags at the desk- I feel they could have just let us put them in the new room rather then lug them all around.

      We stayed here for a week the end of January. Very nice resort, and it's still fairly new, so nothing appears very worn. Very quiet, peaceful. Nice amenities and beautiful pool. The 45 minute update presentation took two and a half hours, so beware. I'd rent a car if you stay here because you can't walk every where.

      The place is really immaculate, the interior design is sophisticated, I rented a 2BDRM and everything inside the unit is gorgeous specially the master bedroom. My husband never left the place during our stay and enjoys the pool and the jacuzzi. One thing i like here best is no sales people will insist on attending the presentation. Once you said "NO" they will leave you alone, i like that! Next thing is this place is really for the whole family to enjoy and have fun. Since i've tried what's it to stay here, i will surely comeback and will recommend to my family to check it out! The only thing they need to IMPROVE here is the front desk check-in. It took us almost 45 minutes just to find our room even if i handed over my confirmation letter. Its like finding a needle in a hay stack, other than that, everything is VERY GOOD!

      We stayed for a long weekend in October 2005. We needed to be transferred to a new unit twice before getting one with all of the amenities working. Units are getting tired and need to be refreshed (worn carpets, chipped paint, scuff marks on baseboards) Very spacious, nice public areas and the staff was most helpful and accommodating.

      Just got back from Fairfield (8/29). Every thing was really nice. Had a 2 bedroom which is actually 2 rooms.Plenty enough room for six adults.The place is about 3 blocks from the strip which is not too bad to walk in tennis shoes. Check in went Great!Front desk was very helpful and curtious. There is a shuttle from Fairfield to Harrahs about every 20 minutes but last run is 12:30 am (which is like mid-day there!!) There is alot of demolition/construction around the area going on so there is not much of a view around Fairfield. We were also informed that you need to order the airport shuttle 24hrs in advance. It was easy to hail a cab at the street. all in all had a GREAT TIME and will go back again.

      Have stayed there several times, the last was in May. The other reviews pretty well cover it, but would like to add that it is possible to go from tower one to two in the grage without oing outside when raining. However, if I had to rate the (Member services) sales staff, it would not be five star.

      This place is wonderful. We are definately going back. We went without the kids but next time we are bringing them. They'll have a blast. One downfall - they don't sell alcohol on the property!!! They have a bar but no liquer store. But everything is super close and within minutes away from some great restaurants like Bahama Breeze - carribean food, inexpensive, and great atmosphere (they were on the travel channel) Go there you won't be dissappointed!

      The property is beautiful and very clean. We are definately going back there and will recommend this place to all my friends.

      We stayed for 2 nights and the location, staff, accomodations, etc. were top notch. My friends who had never stayed at a timeshare before were quite impressed. We will definetly return as we are Fairfield Owners.

      Just returned from this resort and have some pro's and con's - renter not an owner

      pro's - if you want to take the family to Vegas and not have to walk through slot machines and gambling to stay this is a great place. As someone who used to go to Vegas on business a lot, its nice to have a non gaming place to relax. We requested a one bedroom and were upgraded prior to arrival to a 2 bedroom. Inside rooms of towers have some view - if you want a view you need an outside room. The room was a nice size, good sized kitchen and liked the corner kitchen nook. There are currently two pools, one for families and one adult only. There are many activities including parents night out and a magician we enjoyed, as it was free! Decor is nice, a bit frayed around the edges for the age, but the price was really great. They are in the process of building another tower.

      now the cons - checking in took close to an hour as they could not find our reservation as we were renting - however in front of us we could tell lots of people checking in were not happy. As we were about to go to the room, I said this IS a 2 bedroom right? she said no, and had to make some additonal phone calls to get the 2 bedroom even though it was the resort that had done the upgrade.

      We were then offerered a "welcome present and gift" via a note on our door the next morning and a phone call. When we went down to collect, we were told first it wasnt there and second that someone had already claimed it - we are pretty sure that the "gift" probably was linked to a timeshare sales presentation and because we claimed it late in the stay they changed their mind.

      Overall for the accomodations for a family its a good location. As to the staff and their helpfullness and friendliness, well its not the Marriott.

      Note Marriott is building a time share right down the street - this will I am sure continue to be a good reasonably priced location due to competition

      POSITIVE: Nice, moderately priced condo. We rented a 1bedrm for 3-days, 2 nights, and another 2bdrm, 3days-2nights, consecutive. Rooms were clean, comfortable, and decorated. Shuttle to Harrah's every 20minutes was sufficient. NEGATIVE: Sales Staff took seats on shuttle to the strip while guests stood. I would FIRE one who would do so. No cover from rain when going from one tower to other. Need to upgrade the coffee shop. Limo not available for Platinum guests. Concierge told us limo was "sales tool" and Platinum guests were secondary. So don't count on using the limo if you're platinum.

      We bought at this resort last year to become VIP members(we also own weeks at Fairfield Glade). We just returned from spending a week over Thanksgiving 2004. The resort is gorgeous. We had a nice wine and cheese party on the eve of Thanksgiving. There is so much to do in Vegas! This is one of the nicest resorts we have visited. We've owned timeshare since 1981. We upgraded to gold VIP while there and now have use of the Limo service while at resort. Check out Lake Mead and Hoover Dam, Vegas is also home of the largest Harley Davidson dealership in U.S. I love this place!!!!!!

      MY WIFE AND I STAYED AT THE FAIRFIELD FOR A WEEK IN THE SUMMER. INITIALLY WE HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE PARKING IN THE OLD BUILDING, BUT AFTER A DAY OR SO, THERE WAS NO PROBLEM. I MUST ADMIT THE RESORT IS AWAYS FROM THE STRIP, BUT WHO WANTS TO LIVE ON THE STRIP. WE ARE AN ELDERLY COUPLE WHO FOUND THE SUITE AND AMENITIES PLENTIFUL. WE ARE GOING BACK TO LAS VEGAS IN JANUARY FOR 12 DAYS (CHECK EBAY FOR FANTASTIC DEALS) AND WILL BE MOST DEFINITELY STAYING AT THE FAIRFIELD. WHY WOULD ANYONE, ESPECIALLY AN OLDER COUPLE, LIKE OUSELVES WANT TO STAY ANYWHERE ELSE.

      10/22/04-10/06/04 Absolutely Beautiful! Would highly recommend. Although it is not on the strip it was very convenient to catch the shuttle or a cab if it was late at night. Nice clean rooms. Bang for the buck.

      The resort is beautiful. We rented to 2 bedroom condos for Thanksgiving week. The problems were abundant though. The hot tub had so much chemical that it was really unusable. At one point the pool man partially drained it because people were complaining but it was still really strong. My sister had an allergic reaction and ended up in the clinic down the street. Also, beware of the concierge's here. They are so bad! One man in particular was flat out really mean and yelling at me in the lobby. I yelled right on back. It was awful. My family was berrated for not renting a scooter from them instead of an outside party and they refused to help us find the scooter we had ordered. The bell hop had it. We didn't even know we could have gotten a scooter from them. So sorry. Then...the fire alarm went off...bacon...and nobody in this huge monsterous place could turn it off for 2 hours! The windows don't open here so you can't really air it out. They gave us a big fan but even after the smoke was gone the alarms were still blaring. We finally just unscrewed them. Another thing is the sales at this place. I understand the need to sell but they had people in here all day long and the sales person would come by the hot tub or open the sauna every 5 minutes and say, "See! These happy people having such a great time here at Fairfield!" After awhile we just kinda sat there and stared off into space trying to ignore being put on display. The whole week kinda stunk but I gave it 3 stars anyway because its a really pretty place...

      Only one consierge desk. They now have 2 towers but only one desk. We are VIP and yet we were put in the old tower. Don't get me wrong it is nice but could be better. There are outside lights which stay on all night which is good in some places, just not outside the bedroom windows.

      My wife and I stayed the last week of October in the recently opened wing. We had a 2 bedroom and could not be more pleased. The resort is a great place to stay in Las Vegas but you definately want to rent a car. We will be coming back to this resort again.

      We purchased our points just for our trip to Las Vegas. If the other Fairfiled resorts are like this one we will be extremely happy to have bought into Fairfield.

      We have stayed on the property twice, once while under construction and then again last month after completion. The property and the people there are top notch. We felt at home and they 'do whatever it takes' to handle any issues. For being only a couple blocks away from the strip, it's well worth the stay.

      This is a very beautiful resort. Everything was brand spaknkin' new. I loved it. My family and I went in November and it was so chilly that we could not use the pool. I asked them why they didn't have an indoor pool and I was told it is usually hot all year round.

      This resort is not on the strip. We decided we didn't need a car, and life was a little hard for us. We had to find some way to shop for groceries, and although the resort provided a shuttle to the casinos, we were picked up and dropped of at the same location. You could not just wander from place to place and expect to find a ride at any casino. Moreover, I believe the last shuttle was at midnight. We should have had a car, but that defeats the whole purpose of saving money.

      Spent 10 days here while at a convention. Very clean, and new. Staff was friendly, and the room and facilities were great. Very close to the strip.

      I would highly recommend it.

      This is a great place to stay. Very clean and nicely appointed units. Pool area is also very nice. The shuttles make it very convenient, driving in Vegas is rough. It is a nice and relaxing place to get away from the crowds and noise of the Strip.

      Great location, great staff, brand new nicely furnished rooms. Top of the line. The nicest resort we have stayed at except for Orange Lake in FL.

      Amenities include a nice workout room, kids room, games room and pretty pool/whirlpool area. Not a lot of food to pick from on site-- but who cares in Vegas! Viva la Buffets!

      The resort was clean and in good condition. The unit was spacious and well furnished, and the recreational facilities were good. There was construction going on for the new wing but it did not detract from our stay. The location was great. I would recommend this resort and stay there again.

      This resort is all you expect and more. We have stayed here three times and each time the place just keeps getting better. I can hardly wait for the new pool to open with tower three in Sept. 03. The rooms are beautiful and the staff is very nice and helpful. You are close to the strip yet the resort has a very quit and relaxing atmosphere. The kids love this place too. Bring the whole family for this resort takes care of all. Tracey

      This brand new property is first rate. As you would expect from a new property the rooms are in great condition. This is a great place to enjoy Vegas especially for longer stays. Far enough from the strip for some quiet, but close enough for some fun! Convenient shuttle gets you to the strip in 5 minutes. Tower two still under construction as of Sept. '02 when we visited. Construction was not a hassle as we were not in the room during the day.
