Positive Reviews

Loads of activities

The hotel offers numerous activities all under one roof. Families who like to enjoy their holidays at one place without roaming out found this place to be perfect. The range of activities in the hotel covers from golf to outdoor movie screen and a theater. Guests did not have to go out into the city looking for entertainment options.

Lovely mountain villas

The mountain villas that are located in the upper periphery of the hotel are newly designed and decorated. Guests loved the ambience of the villas. They said it had modern décor and furniture, was almost like a small jewel. Since it was in the upper section, it was very quiet and peaceful.

Excellent pools

There are eight pools in the hotel. Kids have access to separate kids only pools and there are many water slides and games in the pools. Kids especially loved these slides having a gala time. Moreover, the pools are extremely clean and maintained well.

Negative Reviews

Slow customer service

Some guests complained of slow customer service at the hotel. They mentioned that the staff was at times negligent in their duties and ignored customer requests.

Poor soundproofing

Walls of the villas and suites were paper thin. Any noise from the room next door was easily audible. Even the music from the Boulder Ridge building is disturbing as it is very loud and goes on till late into the night.

Expensive food

Though there are many dining options available in the hotel, most of them are overpriced. Guests said that the food was definitely not worth the money paid. They preferred nearby restaurants which had cheaper and much tastier food.
