To the Desert We Go! At Least to The Cliffs at Peace Canyon

An October 2004 trip to Las Vegas by Ms. Steele

Quote: The Cliffs at Peace Canyon, let's see . . . They are well maintained and clean, quiet, convenient (to The Strip that is), and it even has amenities too--full kitchens, washers and dryers, pool, gym, computers, and yes, a hot tub--fantastic!

To the Desert We Go! At Least to The Cliffs at Peace Canyon

Best Of IgoUgo

Overview

Quote:
First things first--the resort. They have plenty of rooms to offer, 1 bedrooms or 2 bedrooms, and we had the latter. It sleeps six, but we had five in our group. We were comfortable—the main bedroom had large bathtub with shower and a LARGE walk-in closet--ladies, "whoa!" that's all I have to say; I was in heaven. There were three TVs, one in each bedroom and one in the living room area with a VCR. (Oh, there are free movies you can get from the resort.) The pool is heated--I believe to a wonderful 83°F and a hot tub at a glorious 103°F. Things are hot in Vegas (although, not if you go in October—it can be cool even COLD, yes; believe me when I say the temperatures ranged from the low 50s to the...Read More

Roadrunner Saloon Grand Canyon

Restaurant | "Road Runner Saloon"

Quote:
This was suggested by The Cliffs front desk, so we headed there the first night we were in town. This is not five-star dining--the food was reliable and filling. It is large and has smoking and non-smoking sections. We had a large table in the back, but we were still included in the whole dining experience. The menu is basically American/Southern and American/Tex-Mex. We had margaritas--nothing to write home about--but we were given glasses filled to the rim. The Saloon has a TV tuned into sports and a large enough bar if that's all you need. Reservations are not necessary, but if you have an extra large group, just like any place, it's probably best to make a reservation. We didn't--there wer...Read More

Grand Buffet

Restaurant | "MGM Grand Buffet"

Quote:
Although the buffet was not overrun with choices, the food was amazingly fresh. The meats fell off their bones; we are talking tender here, people. The seafood was also fresh (there was hot and cold options) with the option of crab legs and the food just keeps coming. Yes, there are the usual options like rice, potatoes, salads, and desserts, but we are talking about freshness and tastiness here folks. This place, for a dinner under $40, is worth it.

Spice Market Buffet

Restaurant

Quote:
The Spice Market may have a lot to offer--food, food, and more food, and the desserts? Oh. My. Goodness. Fabulous. But we were disappointed with the quality of the food. It wasn't that it tasted badly, but it just wasn't as tasty and fresh as you'd expect for a place that is a bit on the pricey scale of dinner buffets. They had crab legs--only cold. Hot? Not an option surprisingly. The soup? Delicious, but oh, so salty. I, and another person in my party, got salt bumps on the roofs of our gums, which lasted until the end of our 7-day visit. Ask for water, you'll need it.

Amore's Pizza & Pasta

Restaurant | "Pizza Amore"

Quote:
This restaurant was suggested as a pizza option by The Cliffs. We ended up going to get a large pie. Okay, we're from the Northeast, so we're funny and picky about our pizzas. Warning -- this place took over 30 minutes (yes, we waited) to prepare our large pizza and 10 chicken wings. When we took it back to The Cliffs to eat (before we headed to The Strip), imagine the shock and awe of a pizza cut into what appeared to be a hundred pieces. Hey, I know we're not in NY or Boston, Chicago, Miami, or LA, but were these people for real? I'm still laughing about it. We were stunned. The pieces, I am not exaggerating, were bite-size. Was it too easy to just cut the thing into 8 slices? And we did or...Read More
