This hotel is not interested in treating customers well. It's about them only. Lots of overpriced food and drinks. Smelly casino and indifferent staff. Starts at the top w Harry the hotel manager. Poor attitude and unwilling to fix had problems. Will write bad reviews everywhere I can to let people know not to stay here. Definitely not a 4...

Beautiful Resort! Food buffet was excellent! Views are fantastic! We had a great view of the pool area and mountains. Very clean! Very relaxing. Lots of nice patios to have a drink and visit. The rooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable. It can get a little noisy in the hallways but just ask for a room away from...

This place is the worst! Hotel rooms are nice but the service and "high security alert" is worse than being detained for something you didn't do. High class and maturity doesn't help. You're not allowed to even have a normal conversation in your own room without getting a complaint. You're not allowed to have a couple drinks with friends in...

Been here for 1 night only, but had a great time. If you can walk around even in the car park you see loads of large cacti, which reminded me of Lucky Luke. The saturday afternoon pool party is something to see. The deli on the casino level is awesome, I ate there twice. Also there is a Chompie's joint...

Nice hotel with very nice, modern rooms. Great setup for the business traveller, lots of work space. Spacious bathrooms, large shower and separate tub. This is a casino property and I am not a fan of smokey casinos so I tried to make my way to the room pretty quickly.

Talking stick is the place to be during the summer. So many things to do and so much fun. The pool party is my favorite and there are so many reasons why! The music, food, quality of drinks, and the cabanas just to name a few. The casino is clean and smells fresh. Give both a try sometime!
