Cliffs at Peace Canyon
Travel Blogs from Las Vegas
... was probs more like 6 in the space of an hour, Ernie is getting reallllll bloody chatty. We went into a club that, from what I vaguely remember and a few photos I managed to take, the view was ahhmazing of the whole city. Sam, the quiet girl I invited to dinner really came out of her shell and is a little crazy drunken pocket rocket, I vaguely remember going to the bar with her a couple of times.From here is when **** gets blurry so here's what I kind of remember I ...
As we left our hotel in Tonopah this morning, we stopped to take some pictures of the "art" on the next door fire department. They honor the Air Force planes that have been based in the AF base just to the east of town. Then on down the road to Nellis Air Force Base (just outside of Las Vegas) for the night.
We were hoping to go to the "Petting Zoo" (Threat ...

We were hungry and we happened into Nine Fine Irish Guys Pub and Restaurant for a nice, quiet lunch. We got a primo table, sort of away from the rest of the crowd and were able to talk and relax.

This meant that everyone who was normal and had a normal amount of money could not even sit down in the club! Even so, the club was amazing and we wandered round in amazement at the crazy surroundings. We danced so much; the DJ was awesome and I obviously got pretty involved. The following morning, we felt horrible. We ...

They even shoot canon balls (/loud noises!!) broadside whilst on the lake !! However they decided not to run the 10am tour because there was not enough people. You can imagine how devastated I was (imagine how sad I would have been if I had my pirate costume with me!). On the plus side, we decided to get ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Cliffs at Peace Canyon Las Vegas
It was so beatiful!
It was amazing, i loved the privacy of how it was like an apartment setup. it was great.
I had a good experience
I stayed in March with Timeshare points exchange through RCI. My experience was positive. This is basically a condo in an apartment neighborhood, but it was very nice. We had two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and a full-size washer/dryer with detergent is provided in its separate laundry room off the kitchen. There is a marble floor in the entry and living/dining room area. There is also a good-sized kitchen, decorated very nicely with iron-accented furniture and rich red-and-gold fabrics. I stayed for 4 days with my senior mom and teenage daughter. They loved having all the room. Both rooms had queen-size beds and large TVs, plus a large TV in the living room. One bedroom had a huge clothes closet and bath/shower, and the second bathroom had a shower. The fitness room was nice, an intermediate size with large windows. It wasn't in a small, windowless room like many places have. There was a nice-size pool with a large fountain.
The place is about 20 to 25 minutes from the Strip. It is located in a residential neighborhood. They do supply a free shuttle that will take you to the Strip and bring you back. The shuttle will also take you to the nearest supermarket. Make sure you get on the list the night before or in the morning. We had no problem being dropped off on the Strip and being returned to the Cliffs. It was nice to leave the crowds and noise of the Strip and come back to a quiet place to rest and relax. We rented a car during our stay because we wanted to visit Hoover Dam, which was about a 45-minute drive. I would recommend this place if you have plans in Las Vegas other than to visit the Strip.
Cliffs not Peaceful or Plush
The Cliffs are a typical "time share" or vacation ownership resort. I purchased my stay on line for a 4 night visit. Where do I even begin? This is Not the absolute worst place I have ever stayed but not even close to luxury as previous viewers have stated. My condo yes was decorated nicely, but the bed was as hard as a rock like a cheap bed in a motel type unit, the shower door wouldn't close and water flew out everywhere, when you stood in the shower/tub to move around it made a loud sweeking noise andthe cabinet door in the kitchen was literally hanging loose with a missing hinge. The bathroom doors were an off white color that looked like someone just put them on the oak base cabinets. Overall it looked ok NOT plush. The pool had a lot to be desired...I personally witnessed a child vomiting in the pool and beside it on Sunday night, the next morning vomit was still there, I let the front desk know about it, as it should be cleaned up with a million little kids running and jumping in and around it in the pool. Much to my surprise the next day almost 36 hours since the insident still vomit down to the little corn pieces by the pool. This is unsanitary and disgusting to say the least! Luxury resort it is not! Only stay here if you get it very inexspensive I paid $300 for a week but only stayed 4 nights. Perhaps if you are going for a week and get it really cheap it is ok, but I would prefer to stay on the strip. I stayed at Aladdin the night before checking into this time share and it was a million times nicer! I wished I would have stayed there, but because this was reviewed as so nice and luxurious I chose Cliffs. Believe me from someone who travels alot (I have been the USVI and Hawaii already this year and I know nice places) this is absolutely not nice or peaceful I think the previous reviewers could not have even stayed at the same resort or if you compare a trailer or cheap motel to this maybe it looks luxurious, but it has nothing on a truly nice resort with service. Don't stay here you'll be glad or stay, you may be sorry...
I had to stay in a hotel for a while during the renovation of my condo complex. Naturally, I wanted to stay at Wynn or Bellagio, but the prices ($219.00 per night!) turned me off as I had to spend 10 nights there. So, I looked around and found the Cliffs. A one bedroom was only $95.00 per night! With a kitchen, living room, dining room, bed, and bath, it was a steal! The resort itself is beautifully appointed. I was surprised to find these things at a timeshare resort...
- Beautifully appointed and LUXURIOUS rooms.
- A "resort-like" experience, with waterfall pool and barbecue area.
- Extra amenities such as free computer area and coffee in the clubhouse.
I was also happy to find that the sales pressure was not overly strong. I was asked once and when I turned them down, I was not bothered again. One extra special thing was the staff who always managed to be unfailingly pleasant. This hotel is great for locals and visitors alike. For the visitor, they offer shuttle service to and from the strip and downtown. Even though I live only five miles away, I would like to return to the Cliffs for another "getaway" experience!
we just returned from vegas and stayed for the first time off strip/downtown and loved it all! the cliffs is about 15 minutes from the strip, 10 minutes from The Orleans (which we will go, we liked it there too)! 1/2 mile from walmart and shopping all around. you will need a car but they do provide a very good shuttle service to the strip and fremont street (on mon/weds for fremont) and to a local grocer. the resort was fantastic, very posh and the employees more than helpful. our bathroom sink sprang a leak underneath (towels/tp, kleenex all got soaked) they were up
there in a heartbeat to repair, replace and give us some xtra toiletries for our "inconvenience" - the pool/spa/barbq is great, be sure to borrow the tools for the barbq - we had awesome brats!!!
pool is open 8am till midnite - great place to unwind after the strip late at nite! we had a unit that faced east,ask for one that faces east, south or north, those west facing units fried from 11 am till the sun went down!
we couldnt have asked for a better place to hang our hat for a week, being there kept the spending down (except for shopping LOL) by not being in a hotel, we stocked our kitchen with food for breakfast/lunch and ate a early dinner! also, we were not bugged one minute to purchase a timeshare -
all the staff were great and helpful - be sure to get the vegas street map from the desk, it helped a lot!
Excellent resort, 20 minutes from the Strip
We spent one week here at the start of our holiday and enjoyed it so much we returned for a further 4 days at the end.
We exchanged it through our time share but found that you could also book online for $119.00 per night for a large, one bed apartment that sleeps 4. Very nicely furnished with above average fixtures and fittings. Excellent pool with waterfalls and separate hot tub. Very good BBQ facilities. On Flamingo about 20 minutes from the Strip and with plenty of good restaurants and delis within 2 or 3 blocks.
Very helpful staff, and an hourly shuttle to the Strip, and, if you haven't a car, a free return ride to the nearest food store (Albertsons).
If we return to Vegas we'll definitely stay here again.
Swaying Palms, Beautiful Landscaping - A Truly Refreshing Escape
I just had to share my wonderful experiences that I had while staying at the Cliffs! When I arrived, I was at first shocked to see how luxurious the property was. After all, this is a timeshare property, supposedly not a luxury resort...But it sure feels like one. The lobby is cool and refreshing and the front dest staff are among the best in town. And the villas can only be described as an oasis. Upon entering, I was immediately shocked to find terra-cotta tile floors and expensive furnishings. Not to mention to full kitchen and washer-dryer. Upon leaving my room, I took some time to explore the grounds. The landscaping was immaculate - flowers and shrubbery everywhere! Throughout the resort, there were many hidden nooks and areas to relax. The pool was amazing, even by Vegas standards. Two waterfalls cascaded into the clear, clean blue waters. The pool was flanked on one side by the community center and a wonderful fitness center on the other. Other unexpected amenities included a computer room and barbecue area. And the entire resort, from the rooms to the public areas, were immaculately cleaned.
Getting to the Strip was easy and painless, thanks to the resort's free shuttle. All that I had to do was phone the front desk and make a reservation and go to the lobby to pick it up. The shuttle driver was extremely nice and took me anywhere I wanted to go!
Overall, the Cliffs at Peace Canyon is an exotic, tranquil respite in the hectic city of Las Vegas. Its rooms and grounds cannot be beat by ANY Las Vegas hotel. The amenities that the Cliffs offers rival even the best on the Strip! I would NEVER hesitate to stay here again!!!
Get away from it all but not too away!
Just returned from a week spent in Feb. I exchanged my property week through RCI. The Cliff's is a great property. The rooms are nicely furnished and very clean. Spacious too so bring your friends. I did not mind the location of not being on the strip. It was nice to get away from the craziness but be able to return fairly quickly. The Cliff's is close to Red Rock as well and worth the quick trip. I also think I saved alot of money by not staying on the strip because I won $2000 on roulette and put it in my pocket. If I had been staying at one of the casinos I would have given it back that evening.
The Cliffs has a great pool and a nice bar-b-que area. I wish it was warmer because we would have gotten alot of use out of it.
I would suggest renting a car. The shuttle is a bit of a pain with the reservations. Also there is other things to see in Vegas beside the strip. Since we were there a week we went to Red Rock, the Hover Dam and Mead Lake. Also the restaurants off the strip are very good and less expensive.
One annoying thing is the time share sales pitch. It's a bit overbearing. I know it's their job but I'm on vacaction and have no intention of buying a time share. They bribe you with show tickets, dinners and even money. Just be firm over and over again. And when you check in you get the pitch right away and offered alot of nice things. Here is your first chance to say no if you want too.
Overall I really likes The cliff's and will return again.
Vacation with Kids, 2002
We exchanged here and were assigned a beautifully-appointed 2 bedroom unit with a nice view of the mountains. It was ground level, close to the pool and clubhouse.
The Cliffs were/are luxury apartment homes currently being converted into timeshare units. The sales pressure was tremendous to purchase (we took the tour for a worthless coupon book) and were in no frame of mind to buy anything - just having flown 6 hours we were exhausted!
The noise from above was the only major complaint we had. We were there in shifts it seemed, we'd get up and do the strip and come home to swim and change then go back.
It is a drive to and from the strip but it was not annoying or long. We appreciated the peace afforded us here at the Cliffs. The pool area is outstanding - everything is very clean and well-maintained inside and out.
I don't remember a problem with water pressure in our unit.
We are going back in March for Nascar weekend and returning to the Cliffs. I will write another report at that time. I hope the sales pressure has died down because that was annoying - all the sales tours parading back and forth while guests were trying to relax at the pool. They need to remember SOME people are on VACATION and respect that at least one or two days would be wonderful!
The internet area was free and we used this to get our email and even pay a bill while we were vacationing. The front desk employees were very helpful and polite - we took advantage of the free shuttle one evening to travel to Fremont Street - how convenient!!
There were some ants in our 2nd bedroom upon arrival but I sprayed some "OFF" and they left us alone. The units inside are decorated beyond belief - one of the nicest we've stayed in including our home resort at Hilton Head where I thought was over-the-top.
Very family-friendly resort. Close to Red Rock Canyon and several golf courses nearby.
Look for my updated report coming in March.
Enjoyed the property
Nice place, have stayed there twice.very clean the 2 bedroom had plenty of room and a very decent kitchen....the only complaint i have is the water pressure,the pressure in the main bathtub(on both stays in different rooms)was awful!!! If you wanted to take a bath it would take at least 2 hrs to fill the tub... it is that weak. Me personally the shower and tub pressure is one of the most important things when i stay someplace, you cant get clean with weak water pressure..ok enough of that.. also its a nice little drive to get to the strip, but being away from the strip also has its benefits so it wasnt that big of a deal to me.So all and all it is a very nice place to stay.
