Have you stayed at St. George? Here's your chance to tell other owners what it's really like. How big is the pool? How hot is the hot tub? What do you wish you had known before you left home?

We stayed here for 2 nights on our way to Zion and Bryce. We had the 2 bedroom penthouse which was nice, but in need of some updating if they want to call it a "penthouse" for much longer. We did love the private hot tub on our balcony and no units behind us, so we had views of the desert. Unfortunately, as with most WM properties, the WM St. George does not have outstanding views, such as of the red rocks in the area. It is also quite a distance from the center of town. We LOVED Snow Canyon and recommend it just as much as Zion and Bryce. We also recommend ATV and Jeep Adventures for their ATV tour. It was one of the many highlights of our trip. Unlike the previous poster, I love the firm quality of beds at WM, so to each his own.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Worldmark in St. George UT this July, 2012. We've been an owner for 12+ yrs, so I feel my opinion should have some merit. Check-in was great, very nice friendly service, gave us lots of information about the surrounding area & places to visit. Better than AAA! All said and done, I was dissapointed in the unit. We stayed in a corner unit, one bedroom on the 3rd floor. The amenities were as expected for this unit, but I was dissapointed in the overall cleaniness of the unit. The bedding was very poor quality, sheets were worn & thin, some had old stains on pillow cases. The bed itself was horrible! I travel a lot, staying in hotel chains, and never have I had a bed so hard, uncomfortable, as we did here at Worlkmark. This is where they need to make changes to the quality of their product. Houskeeping does not do a good job of cleaning, even though we pay for houskeeping services, this needs to be addressed. The BBQ on the patio hadn't been touch by houskeeping, tongs were dirty with dried food on them and on the ground below the BBQ, switch was broken on the BBQ. The coffee maker had the wrong design of coffee filters, so when making coffee the water wouldn't drain through. Such easy fixes, but appears no one does a quality check behind houskeeping. I think now that Worldmark is owned by Wyndham, I expected the quality to improve, but it appears no one is listening. One last thing, as members we should not have to pay for WiFi. Come on!!! We paid for 7-day of service, and the service was horrible. Couldn't get on, when we did it took forever, booted off numerous times. Save your money! Better off finding a Starbucks, or other location for WiFi. Again, expected better amenities as Worldmark owner. Don't feel comfortable recommending family or friends to join until I see overall improvement in quality of product. Sorry.

My family is on our last night here. I noticed in the forum rules that "negative" posts may be removed "without prior notice", which might explain the lack of current and accurate posts about this resort. Since some of my comments are going to be negative, maybe it will be deleted by the forum hostess, but I hope not.

The Positive:

The units are nice sized and we always found parking right in front of our room (the resort appears to be full, so this is good), there is a Murphy bed in the living room which gave us some extra room when our teenagers decided they wanted separate sleeping arrangements. The pool is small, but clean despite heavy usage by small children. The ping-pong table is by far the nicest we have seen at any Worldmark or RCI resort. It is solid, and not broken (well, the net is patched together, but it works!) The weight room is nice, but I did cut my finger adjusting one piece of equipment. If you can handle tennis in the heat, there are free tennis courts at an adjacent resort (strange that the staff had to call and find this out - you'd think they would be trained about all the amenities available for guests).

The Negative:

I would describe our experience as "mediocre" compared to our visits at other Worldmark or RCI resorts. I suspect the management of this resort is new or lacks sufficient resources to improve the experience of guests. If I had to guess, it is lack of experience since there are areas that are not resource dependent where we were disappointed. This lack of leadership and standards can be described by way of a few examples:

When we arrived, there were "tokens" for sale in the lobby. Since we were early and our room wasn't ready, I looked around for the game room while my wife registered. Several doors were open or unmarked. One room that was open was the room where employees have their lockers. The room was disgracefully messy, not a sign of the high standards that a "Five Star II Rating" resort manager would enforce, even in areas that should be kept closed, and also not something that would take substantial resources to improve. Other office area rooms were also messy and disorganized, like sales signs blocking access to the "discount coupons" and other materials that assist in planning activities.

The grounds were not properly maintained. As you can see from this image [img]https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/tsRiiXJNKZOSVpQzf-bQD4taxLdw9qPkVGM--tngPVM?feat=directlink[/img] , there is over 12 inches or several months of overgrowth blocking the pathways. These branches kept poking us in the face, so my daughter started breaking them off hoping that somebody would take notice and trim them, no such luck. Other than the ones trimmed by her, the overgrowth is still there and is noticeable everywhere at the resort.

The unit came with one roll of toilet paper in each bathroom. Even though they brought us more when we called and asked, this is not the sort of thing you want to call and ask for, as when you find out you are out, it is an uncomfortable moment. A good manager would have a checklist and quality control to ensure a good guest experience.

The next negative is more of an indictment of a policy that has become antiquated. This "5 Star" resort and allegedly now all Worldmark Resorts charges for WIFI despite the fact that even places like YOUKNOWWHO Inn have free WiFi (not wanting to violate advertising rules here). You can see other places that offer free WiFi at wififreespot dot com. Why would the owners (me!!!) want to pay ourselves extra for something that has become more of a utility like internet access? Why not get great high speed service at every resort and just include it in our dues? The biggest irritation is that this new policy of charging for WiFi was only explained to owners at the "owner's orientation" meetings, which of course we skipped because they use them to sell more credits to us. Even more incredulous, we paid $50 for the internet access, only to find out that the internet service comes on a cable rather than a 99.99% up-time T-1. This wouldn't be a problem, but they did not tell us when they collected the $50 that they were expecting "intermittent" disruptions in our service due to maintenance. Intermittent turned out to be the entire Friday evening during the opening ceremony of the Olympics. Now we have plenty of things to do on vacation, and this would not even be a complaint, except I was required to pay for it, and the "disruption" was planned in advance. They charged me knowing it wasn't going to work... That is not nice. When it did work, it was not fast enough to watch movies online. A huge resort sharing a single cable modem? Charging every guest $XX... Can't you afford a redundant, high bandwidth system?

We still had fun on our vacation, especially the "Bottoms Up - Narrows" in Zions Park, and these annoyances are minor, but are not typical of our prior experiences at Worldmark or RCI resorts. I don't think we will return to St. George's Worldmark.

Hope this helps those looking for an accurate description of the resort in 2012.

Angstmaniac.

My husband and I just returned from 7 days at Worldmark St.George yesterday. We were in a 1 bedroom deluxe room and it was a corner unit far enough away from the pool as to not be subjected to any of the noise often associated with kids and water. It was 102-106 degrees outside so the air conditioning was a Godsend. We enjoyed hiking up at Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, the Kolob Canyons portion of Zion National Park and Kodachrome Basin State Park. We also took a day and travelled down the Scenic Byway 12--very beautiful but make sure you have plenty of water, time and gasoline. We also went horseback riding up at Snow Canyon for a sunset ride on our final night. The only negatives: (1) the concierge at the host desk talked our ear off when we first arrived (after being on the road for 6 hours and just wanting to unload the car and change clothes!) and overloaded us with all of his suggestions for our time there as well as pushing the owner update and (2) the heat and the wildfires that decided to erupt while we were there (no fault of Worldmark!). Word of warning: if you decide to go hiking near the resort itself do not use the trailmaps from online as the trails do not lead where they are supposed to and you end up behind a construction fence or barbed wire fence with the jackrabbits laughing at you! Stick to the parks for your hiking! And bring lots of lotion, the air is dry!

Just got back from 5 days in St George.

Positives: Great resort overall, very clean, and I was impressed that even the smallest of details like raking the horseshoe pit was being done at least once a day.

Negatives:
1) If your unit faces the main pool with the waterfall, expect
lots of noise.
2) The "no kids in the pool after 9pm" rule doesn't seem to
apply. I walked by the pool at almost 10:30pm and it was
full of kids yelling and screaming.
3) As usual, after checking in, I was guided to the "resort
host" desk for my parking pass and got the spiel on
attending a "owner update" meeting. I explained that we had
just been to the one at the WM Vegas two days earlier. In
spite of this, the "host" kept pushing me to go to the one
there at St George. I finally had to get a little rude to
get my point across. Very disappointing.

We had our 14 month old with us and the highlights of our trip were:
- Kolob Canyon
- Zion with hikes at Riverside, Weeping Wall, & Emerald Pools.
- Silver Reef Museum & ghost town plus the two cemetaries.
- Snow Canyon
- Surprisingly, the World Wildlife Museum right off the freeway
at Bluff St.

We LOVE the St. George WorldMark. The views off to the south are spectacular as you look off into the desert and rocky hills. There are plenty of fun activities nearby such as Snow Canyon and Zion's National Park, and the resort itself is very relaxing and clean. The two large pools are nice, one has a rock feature with a waterfall pouring into the pool which the kids love. There are also two kid pools and two hot tubs, along with two little kids parks and a fun kid room next to the exercise room. We loved barbequing on our balcony each night looking over into the pool. Can't wait to go back!

The St. George resort is very well-kept and spacious and friendly. I went for a week-long plein air painting trip in late spring, it rained most every day, yet provided some spectacular sun-kissed red hills through dark threatening clouds ... couldn't have been better! And, yes, Snow Canyon was beautiful. St. George also puts you in a location to drive to many incredible views of southern Utah, including Zion National Park. Many days I just headed east and took in the sites.

We stayed in one of the penthouse suites over New Years, just so we'd have the private hot tub on the deck. Wow, that was a nice unit! Unfortunately, there were unusual cold temps well below freezing and I was sick as a dog for the week, so many of our planned activities went out the window. Nothing says romance like the flu, huh?

Snow Canyon is wonderful, plenty of hiking, from easy on up. Zion NP isn't far away, although Bryce Canyon is always my favorite. Valley of the Gods is incredible is you want to make the drive over, we didn't do it on the St. George trip, but if you ever get the chance, go!

Our family just returned from a trip that started on Sunday, August 7th to Friday, August 12th to the Worldmark in St George. We arrived about 6 hours earlier than our reservation so we decided to do some window shopping while we were waiting, but after 2 hours we were tired and hot. We headed to Worldmark to see what was the earliest we could check-in, to our surprise they told us we could go relax in our room within minutes of us walking up to the front desk, we were elated. The activities coordinator set us up with some coupons for food & activities during our stay and invited us to come anytime during our stay for any more suggestions of things to do and see, she was extremely helpful. We headed over to our room and were delighted that we were on the 3rd floor with the most awesome views of St George and the areas around the Worldmark. We wish we knew how to post some of our pictures to this forum, but we are brand new and are not quite sure how to do it. We stayed in a 2 bedroom with a murphy bed, jetted hot tub, vaulted ceilings with ceiling fans, barbeque and a deck. Every night outside from our deck we would get to see a half dozen or so bunnies nibbling on the grass, several of the our family members tried to get pictures of them from the deck and 3 of us went down on the ground to sneak up on them and take there pictures(our neighbors were probably puzzled to see people sneaking around in the dark with cameras). There are 2 swimming pools(one of them had a waterfall), 2 hottubs and 2 kiddie pools. The gameroom and arcade ended up costing money so we skipped playing there. We did use the coupons to buy one get one free miniature 18 hole golf at the Fiesta Fun Center which was alot of fun. They have bumper boats, go karts, batting cages, kid soft play & a arcade. We went on the Historic St George Downtown Walking Tour and saw alot of interesting things and oldtime buildings, fun walk around town. There is a Laser Mania Family Fun Center in town with laser tag,indoor miniature golf,arcade,bumper cars and a 4D Movie Ride, we went inside an checked it out, but didn't end up having time to go back and try it out. They have 6 movie theatres in town 4 regular priced and 2 discount priced. If you like to gamble Mesquite, Nevada is only about 30 minutes away. We also hiked up to the Dixie rock, beautiful,fun and scary(big drop off). All in all we had a wonderful time and having a comfortable place to relax after all our many activities was a plus. We would love to go to the St George Worldmark again, but maybe pick a month not quite so hot as August.

Well, Utah is the second driest state...and it is usually very hot and dry. Arizona gets the moonsoons, not southern Utah. I live in SLC and often go to the Shakesphere Festival in Cedar City, staying in the condos in St. George. I have never noticed much rain.

We booked a 3 bedroom presidential unit for one night in April for my daughter and a few of her friends to celebrate her 16th birthday. They all loved the pool and the private hot tub on the balcony. The unit was beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. We live in St. George, so we had never stayed there before, but the resort was beautiful.

My family and I traveled to St George for just 1 night (5/21/2011) to visit family. We knew from other reviews that the property could be difficult to find so we made sure to check in during daylight hours - and it definitely was hard to find but we did manage. Even arriving right at check in time, the process was quite simple and fairly quick. We did have to go to a second desk to obtain our parking pass. I hate that dreaded desk where you get the "attend a presentation" pitch. But since I told them we were only staying 1 day we didn't get the hard sell.

We stayed in a 1st floor, 2 bedroom unit with a wonderful view of the pool and with great access. The pool area consisted of 1 large pool with a waterfall, a small tot pool, a jacuzzi and plenty of lounge chairs. I was quite surprised that the pool was heated since it was already mid-May but it was a pleasant surprise and we all loved it!

The inside of the unit was very clean and had new furnishings. In fact, the living room couch and chair were so new that they honestly weren't very comfortable although did look great. The kitchen had all the comforts of home and included 2 dishwasher soaps and extra garbage bags. (I only mention this because this is not always the case at other properties and can be quite inconvenient). There were great flat panel tv's in both the living room and master, but no tv in the guest bedroom (bummer). The bathrooms were both similar with tub/shower combos. Only bar soap was provided so make sure you bring or buy all the comforts from home.

Since we were only in town 1 day we did not seek out a grocery store or do any site-seeing. I'm not aware that there's anything to do in town but do plan on taking the 45 minute drive to Zion when we go back in August.

Overall, we really loved this property and will definitely be back!

If you'd like to see a few pics of the unit...please follow my link https://picasaweb.google.com/11783157093...feat=directlink

My wife and I stayed at this resort in July of this year. I am not sure of the floor plan but we had 1 bed room with a king and a murphy in the living room. It had a fire place full kitchen nice bath and a great balcony. Over all I was very pleased with this resort, I have stayed in only a couple but this was by far the nicest. All I could think upon arriving was that this is exactly what I was sold when I bought my resort in 04. I have stayed in vegas, New Orleans, and San Diego up to this point. I am staying in the Aneheim this weekend for my anneversary and I am hoping that it is as good as St George.

My husband and I just returned from a week at St. George. The unit was excellent, Up to the standard that we expect when we travel to our resorts. We stayed in building D and enjoyed the patio area where it was very private for grilling out..My sister and husband were there and were very impressed with WorldMark.
Zion was breath taking for any of you who have not travel and visited there.
The directions to the resort were hard to follow. Don't use a GPS. That is one thing all resorts have in common, they are the best kept secret!! You have to really look for them.Why???
Memorial Day week-end was extremely busy and the staff had to remind people that you can NOT have your towels and clothing hanging from the rails to dry..Also many kids under age 7 were in the spa and no parents around!! That was also taken care of..Thanks, for the good memories. We have been owners since '93 and have throughly enjoyed many resorts and look forward to spending more time at the ones we haven't been to yet.

Just returned from our trip to St George. It was nice I must say. We went with 7 people (4 adults 3 Children) and was very comfortable. With small kids as long as there is a pool you can't go wrong. lol. The only real negative thing that I have to say is that the Art work on the wall left something to be desired. Also the mattress in the guest room needs to be replaced.
My kids loved the arcade. There wasn't any signs saying that the pool cues are kept at the front desk, which was irritating since the office isn't attached.There was a posting saying that the tokens were at the main office. I would expect the ping pong table to be like that but not the pool tables.
The gym was AMAZING. It had newer equipment that worked, and there was a working universal. It also has a room where you kids can play while you work out. There is a window to watch them too.
The pool was very nice. The are two of them one behind the cabana (which offered breakfast for a small fee and one behind the rec room. That one was the nicer of the 2.
I noticed that some of the rooms had there own hot tub!!! I was jealous of that because I didn't notice that it was an option.

The "store" is tiny not much is offered on site.

As far as things to do..we had friends in the town so we spent a lot of time with them. Snow Canyon is very pretty and my kids got a kick out of the lava. It was too cold to hike but I hope that next time we go it wont be. There are running trails and parks everywhere. It is a cute city. My favorite place to eat was the Wing Nut off of Sunset BLVD.
We seen people having a blast on 4 wheelers but didn't find a place to rent them. They had brought them.

There isn't a sign at the main road telling you this way to worldmark so we did pass canyon view the first time. The milage on the site isn't quite as accurate as I would have liked. And it also took us a longer way than what we found to be quicker. For instance when you exit onto bluff st exit 6, it tells you to make the left and another left. You can go straight and be on the same road without going around. If you pass canyon view and turn around look for the sign that says green valley resort. The resorts are up on the hill and you can see them but it is deceiving on how to get up there. Canyon View is a road that has houses on both sides and you wouldn't think that it would be a road to the resorts up there.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. We had a great time.

I took my wife to St. George of the weekend of the 11th & 12th of October using FAX credit. It was during the Huntsman Senior Games, and I was Participating in the Triathlon. The only problem we had was finding the resort. We finally ended up calling and getting excellent directions. Don't use Mapquest, it will just get you lost. Our room was great. We were their during the week of the 20th Anniversary, so they were serving cake to celebrate. They also invited us in for a update, they was suppose to be 45 minutes, but we were there for close to two hours, but that was our fault, we decided to buy more credit. Just a note, we have stayed at seven of the Worldmark resorts, and the Wyndham in Williamburg Va. The Worldmark resorts are Superior to the Wyndham. We have neve had a bad experience, and the staff has always been helpful and professional. St George however, is one of the best. We enjoyed our stay. And it was close to the Triathlon. I Especially enjoyed coming back after 1&1/2 hours of swimming, biking, and running. We did go to the outlet mall, that was my exchance with my wife so I could be in the triathlon. That evening we went to the Tuacahn theather. If you go to ST. George, that is a must. I booked my tickets back in June, I knew it would be full during the week of the Senior Games. Old people like it. I plan to go back, I don't know when, however, St. George has joined Oceanside, as being on of my favorite resorts.

Just got back from a 7 day stay in the penthouse at worldmark st george. I guess I have to say I have mixed emotions. On the positive, the resort is beautiful and the penthouse was well appointed and very tastefully done. We enjoyed the hot tub a lot and the suite was beautiful. On the downside. I stay in a lot of hotels on business and I can't remember when the last time I slept on a more uncomfortable mattress. Hard as a rock. The pillows were like something you'd find in grandma's "extra linen" closet. Hard as bricks and thin as a toothpick. We invited friends of ours with us and they were seriously considering a worldmark membership. Their opinion of the bedding was the same as mine. Considering that about a third of your vacation time at the resort is spent in the bedding, it seems like it could be expected that it should be comfortable. Especially in the Penthouse suite.

We just spent one night in the 3 bedroom penthouse on the way home from Oceanside. Everyone was extremely helpful and the room was wonderful. One thing that I wasn't aware of is that in the 3 bedroom penthouses, the third bedroom has 2 twin beds. There isn't an option of a queen or even bridging the beds since there is a wooden bed frame that goes around the twin beds. It worked well with our kids, but should anyone want to take only couples that third bedroom may not work for a married couple with 2 twin beds. Also, in the twin bed room there is a private bathroom. It may have been smarter to put the king bed in the room with the private bath and let those using the twin bed room have the bathroom in the hall. Other than that, we loved it. The private hot tub on the deck was great!

we stayed in a deluxe two bedroom ,, well it was huge so that was really nice, the decor is real nice too,, um the housekeeping left something to be desired. the kitchen had stuck on food on sink, counters and dishes. the bathroom and bedroom drawers had pubic hairs in them (yuck) so i cleaned them myself.. but overall it was a nice place and fun to visit.. the pool was really crowded but thats to be expected.. oh and the people upstairs were soooooo loud they sounded like elephants dancing... and the jetted tub is not worth the extra points, i did not bother using it cause its small like all the other tubs,, however the staff was pretty nice....

We, for the second year in a row, vacationed at St. George in a one bedroom unit this past May. We had no problems with the unit or the check in process. Our unit was clean and fully stocked with everything that was needed. We very much enjoy this vacation resort and since my nephew and his family live in St. George, we got to visit them two years in a row whereas we hadn't seen them for quite a few years before.

We will continue to vacation here on our road trips to the Southwest.

Just got back from St. George / Vegas... St. George is a great place to stay to hit Zion NP, Bryce Canyon NP, and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Zion is the closest and has a great shuttle service that runs between veiwing spots every 5 minutes, and plenty or trails if you like to hike; Bryce Canyon is a little bit farther and has a great road through it with loads of viewporints; The Grand Canyon is the farthest out but well worth the trip. I have not been to the South Rim, but the North Rim is spectacular. If you travel between St. George and Vegas, check out the Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada.

we just returned from spending the 4th of july weekend here in a two bedroom with our three teens. the unit was standard worldmark set-up and decor. kids enjoyed the amenities they used: shuffleboard, horseshoes, pool (the pool water was kind of cloudy but this may be because of the hard water there?).

I found the resort rather disappointing. on checkin the front desk wasn't even sure where the elevators were located in our building (we had a 3rd floor room). had she even toured the property she worked at? the next question I asked the front desk was about the local 4th of july activities at a local park. she had no idea what I was talking about or where this park was (central downtown st. george). as it is not that big of a town and it was a major holiday I cannot imagine why the front desk staff would not have any information on local festivities for the guests.

hubby and son went to the fitness center but returned reporting many broken machines, so a limited workout.

I was disappointed in the unit cleanliness. quite a few dirty dishes and scum in the bathroom. this was also our experience at the midway resort in utah. seems there is a different standard of cleaning in that state. also, housekeeping had neglected to restock the bathrooms with paper or all the towels for a 2bd., and two of the four stovetop burners were not working.

the bed and pillows in the masterbedroom were the worst I have ever slept on in one of our wm resorts (visited over 15). the mattress was like a trampoline it was so bouncy and sloped terribly so if I rolled too close to the edge I almost rolled off the bed. the pillows were flat as a pancake.

next time we visit zion national park we'll stay in springdale.

We recently stayed at the St.George WorldMark location for the second (Saturday, June 14 through Tuesday, June 17) and third (June 20) times. The Saturday, June 14th stay was wonderful! We booked a two-bedroom deluxe suite. It came with two bedrooms and two baths. The master bedroom had a king sized bed and an attached bathroom with a jetted-tub. The hall bathroom also had a jetted-tub (the second bedroom had a queen size bed).

As we have come to expect with WorldMark, everything was pristine and well decorated (save one odd print/painting in the master bedroom that I wouldn't exactly call art, but that's just a personal opinion). The patio was large and looked out over the south-side pool (Room 339) which made my kids very, very happy. We ate breakfast outside every morning and enjoyed watching other visitors playing in the pool.

We spent most of our time lounging by the pool or swimming, eating way to much or enjoying the amazing beauty of St. George. Our last visit a year ago was spent at Zion National Park, but due to triple-digit temps, we opted to visit the Dinosaur Tracks museum. It's inside, air-conditioned and really quite an interesting location. My seven year old was intrigued and took lots of pictures of the tracks.

For adult play, you can drive a short 40 minutes or so to Mesquite, the border of Nevada and Arizona (take I-15 south). Another hour or so tagged on, and you're in Vegas. We drove from St. George to Anaheim which took about five and a half hours. I'll be really happy when the Anaheim location on Katella Avenue (just down the street from the Disneyland Resort), is completed. We could see it coming up and it looks like a great place already. My family and I had to stay at a hotel and, of course being a WorldMark owner, we are super spoiled. The hotel, which to some would be luxurious, was pretty plain to us.

After our stay in Anaheim, we came back to the St.George location for one night. This was spent recovering from our drive and getting our laundry taken care of (along with a dip in the pool). Our room this time, #337, was a one bedroom deluxe. The master bedroom did not have a bathroom of it's own this time, but the shared bathroom did include a jetted-tub. There were a couple of problems with our room, but we addressed them quickly and continued to enjoy our stay.

We will definitely be back and I'm eager to see how this area expands (because there is so much room for growth - I'm thinking a pool set-up like the one at the Vegas strip, lazy river and waterfalls, would be a great addition to this desert location). Thanks for being so top-notch, WorldMark and a special kudos to the staff who are always friendly and helpful.

I've always enjoyed my trips to WorldMark St George. This was where I had my very first WorldMark stay. I have really appreciated how helpful the staff are when it comes to helping with things to see and do in the area. They also have a really nice gift shop there. I always buy several things. I like the way the landscaping is done up with palm trees. It makes me feel I am somewhere tropical. I visit St George each fall and enjoy staying here.

Dear Owners and Staff:

As we had made several attempts to book at St. George it was hard at first; being the best spot in the Winter time to be. We finally made it in and we picked the week of Christmas. It was exciting and as we arrived it WAS COLD,the coldest week of the year in St. George. The sites were great we visited the Crafton Ghost town as well as Zions.

The staff has been great and they even went the extra mile to help my son get information from the web as he was not able to view.

Thanks Worldmark, we will be back and look forward to visiting other Worldmark locations.

Thanks again,
The Williams Family
Kaysville, Utah

I decided I should do a little add on to this resort review. I have reserved units at Worldmark St. George 14 different times, mostly just for a few nights at a time since we live in the area, and several times for others. Why do I keep coming back? It's like a whole different world. No phone calls, a nice pool to soak up the sun by (many times even in the winter) a great staff, and the resort is impeccably clean and well maintained. I can't recall ever having anyone be rude to me in all those times, and I can't even remember having to make any complaints about anything. Congratulations St. George Worldmark!
Superior Resort.
