We had a fantastic stay here. I don't understand the other reviewers making negative comments about the hotel layout, it's built in a mountainous area so what do they expect? It is very steep but we never had to wait longer than five minutes for a shuttle bus and that was during

"A room in the 500s is halfway up the mountain and a short walk to the pool and restaurant"
"higher rooms appear better located. second story rooms in building 800 are at ground level, first story is down some stairs"
"Get building 8 if you can...or 7. The higher you are the better the views."
"The rooms in section 500 are closest to the pool. Easy pathway down."
"All rooms have excellent views. For easier access to the restaurant, stay near bottom of hill."
