Traded our Marriott timeshare months ago, and though it took several calls to the new Embarc management---Diamond Resorts as well as calls up to the day of our stay to the resort itself to make sure we avoided some of the negative things said on Trip Advisor, we received a warm welcome and a perfect room--in the adult section, high...

Excellent option in Whistler upper village. We had a fantastic two bedroom suite with a ground floor patio nestled in behind some trees. Really enjoyed spending evenings on the patio after the kids went to bed. Nice furnishings and a huge jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom. Washer and dryer in closet beside kitchen. Wifi was good. Pool/waterslide is great...

Super family get away, our 2 bedroom Suite with Club Intrawest provided everything we we needed and more! We love the Club's proximity to shopping/restaurants and all outdoor activities, with leisurely strolls after dinner, and entertainment options. Our 20 something kids even enjoyed an evening visit to the games room! The staff was very helpful and Pablo Contreras went the...

The amenities- pools, spa exercise room, common rooms were very good. We had a studio with queen bed and mini kitchen which was fine since we did not cook or eat in. The room was a little small but the bathroom was good size. The only criticism was the lighting was insufficient in the bedroom despite a large window.

We used up all of our points for a nice summer get away here and booked months in advance with a request to be close to the kids area. We ended up with a room that looked nothing like what they show you during the sales pitch. It was dark, dated and right by the side of the road where...

I have been a member of this resort for a long time, but since the management changed hands I wonder if the quality is slipping a bit.

This was our first trip to Embarc Whistler. We traded our time share through Interval International and received a two bedroom lock off in exchange.

We've been members of Club Intrawest at Whistler for many years, but have not stayed in this club location. We were leery of Diamond Resorts buying out Club Intrawest and turning the Whistler location into Embarc Whistler, but it doesn't seem that anything has really changes. Now another mega-firm has bought Diamond Resorts, so hard telling what will happen next....
