The Cliffs are a nice resort... BUT... There always seems to be a but, doesn't there? I'll start with the good. Check-in is very smooth and fast. The service is very friendly and helpful.All the place is very clean with the basic amenities that you would expect from a timeshare in Vegas. Pool with spa, pooltable and exercise room. One nice thing that they do have is an outdoor fireplace that you can congregate with other people. It is also a gated community so there is that added safety of needing a key to get in the premises at night.The rooms are nice and nicely acquainted. We had a 2-bedroom unit. All the furnishing were quite nice, the appliances were top notch and modern. Another plus was that the units had large capacity washers and dryers in room. One thing that I did find a bit lacking were the bedroom sizes and the bathrooms. Both bedrooms were smallish with only queen beds and despite only having queen beds there was little room for anything else but the bed the 2 night stands and an armoire that held a TV. Though the closet in the master bed was a large walk-in type. The master bath had just the older type of shower/tub combo though was quite clean. The other bedroom was even smaller with an even tighter fit around the bed. The other bath only had a shower. And now it's time for the BUT. And a big BUT it is. The location of the timeshare. It is way west almost in the Summerlin area (actually it might even be in Summerlin) so even during a no busy time of day, it might take you a good 15 minutes to get to the strip; and if it is a busy time of day and year it could literally take you more than an hour. Cab fares would be hellacious to and from this place going to the strip or Fremont. So if you do decide to stay here it would be wise to bring a car or rent one. Going to the strip the best way would be to get on the 215 South then connect to the 15 North rather than trying to take Flamingo all the way down.
