Canyon Villas Recent Experiences
We recently returned from a 6 night stay using DC points at Canyon villas in a 1BR. Although we had an initial problem at check-in with villa assignment, we were able to get a golf course view room. However, it wasn't ready until 5:30pm.
We really enjoyed the dining experiences at the JW restaurants. Roy's has a great special on Monday nights: $39 for any 3 course meal on the menu. The lobster potstickers, Ohno entree, and service were outstanding. They also have a great happy hour with appetizer and drink discounts. The (Meritage?) restaurant at the golf cours also was great and had sundown dinner specials until 6:30pm. Between the restaurants at the JW, In-and Out Burger, and the food we bought at Costco, we hardly left the resort area. New equipment was also recently installed in the weight room, and it now is very well equipped.
If onyone needs an additional night in the area, I highly recommend the Residence Inn near the Mayo Clinic. This is only2-3 exits away, and is much nicer than other RI's and has an excellent pool area. We had originally planned to spend the night in Flagstaff, but had to flee the area to avoid 24 in of snow. The RI was a great alternative.
