Have you stayed at WorldMark Pagosa? Here's your chance to tell other WorldMark 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?

May2, 2021: Pagosa was our worst experience ever at a WorldMark. EVERYTHING about unit(s) was substandard. Tub surround was exposed sheetrock. Bathroom sink & shower floor looked dirty & had many cracks. Baseboard in bathroom was broken off & area around laundry filthy. Plastic bag of bedding/linens was sitting in the middle of the floor...clean or dirty? Electric range burner coils were sitting loose upon top of stove, not installed. This is partial list of issues. This looked like leftover Route 66 motel vintage 1960.
Staff was nice, commiserated, gave us a bottle of wine, then at checkout a $50 gift card, but we heard the same things about Board of Directors being a roadblock to renovation, but mainly because of the 3rd party homeowner's associations who actually own the condos. WorldMark/Wyndham (we members) apparently don't OWN any of this place. I thought our $ were meant to actually provide deeded, owned & controlled properties! Looks like misuse of funds to me. We like the area. Durango, Pagosa, Mesa Verde: the area is beautiful. But, we will not return unless guaranteed in advance we will be in unit(s) which have been totally updated.

We decided to try Pagosa Spings in June 2019.Check in late. Not enough staff to get units cleaned. Very disappointed as when checked in the couch had holes in leatherette. Small unit as we did not request delux. Then they moved us and air did not work. The manager tried to make us happy but she kept blaming board of World Mark for not letting them update the units. They project in next 3 years will be fixed. Since she worked for Wyndham, all staff and people blame the board of World Mark. If that is true I am disappointed in the board. We will not go back there.

We stayed early October 2018 and were very disappointed with the entire stay. First off, the complex is so huge that you need a vehicle to get to the hot tub or any activity. Our one-bedroom unit was tiny and dated. The kitchen so small that the coffee maker, blender and toaster were stored on top of the refrigerator. The sink, dishwasher, counter space and stove/oven were crammed into a space that seemed to be a remodeled closet. The tiny table was smaller than a card table and had only two chairs. There was a pull-out sofa so the unit would have accommodated 4 adults, but thankfully we were only two.

The office does not have movies to borrow. At check-in, they did explain that this is not a Worldmark property but looking back at the website, there is no indication that the units are less than we have been accustomed to in other Worldmark properties.

On the positive side, because this is a Wyndham property, we were not subjected to the usual, obnoxious "invitation to an owner's update".

Other, far superior Worldmark locations that we have stayed at are: Wolf Creek, Yellowstone, Steamboat Springs, Red River, Bison Ranch, Oceanside.

We haven't been anywhere for a while (which is odd)! We tried Pagosa Springs, Colorado. We had only one of our kids with us this time and she had a great time, as did we.

Check-in was breezy. There was confusion on my end--I usually look for Worldmark signs--there was only a Wyndham sign. Check in was quick and even though the resort is actually huge with several different complexes around, the maps that they gave us were easy to read and understand.

We stayed in a one bedroom unit on the top floor. The ceilings were very high in the bedroom. The hide-a-bed was comfortable and our daughter loved sleeping on it. The bathroom was big, the tub was big and had jets. The kitchen was smaller than what we are used to--but we're usually in a two bedroom unit, which are bigger.

The resort is huge and in order to go most of the places from the units, you'll need to drive or bike--unless you get a unit next to where the action is. But it wasn't bad. The resort is nestled in a golf course so there are several bodies of water around. Some of them are pretty big. But the water means that there is a lot of waterfowl roaming around. Fun to look at--we even saw a swan in one of the lakes. There is fishing in the lakes and you can get a license at a few different places.

The activities center was top notch. It was a beautiful building and there was something going on everyday for my daughter to look forward to. She was able to do fun things like tie-dye t-shirts, decorate bird houses, decorate keepsake boxes, etc. Best of all, it was all free. Everything was provided--there was no charge for anything. We attended two ice cream socials, a root beer float social, a cheese, cracker, and fruit owners social, and played "Boogie Bingo". All around the activities building there are things to do such as ping-pong, tennis, an 18-hole miniature golf course, big chess board, big Jenga, Chinese horseshoes, basketball, etc. There were also board games in the activities building.

There was also a recreation building that housed the workout facilities, swimming pool, etc. The hot tub was quite hot and the jets were strong. There was also a small wading pool for the kiddies.

The town of Pagosa wasn't very far away. There were plenty of little restaurants, shops, and hikes to keep us busy for the 5 days that we were there.

All in all, great place.

Sept 23, 2017 - You have to call the office and complain about the problems when you stay at resorts like this. You also need to call Owner Care and tell them about it too. If you do not take those steps nothing will ever change. My husband and I stayed there this past week. No wonder the points were so low. Our 1 bedroom unit was a studio with a bedroom attached. If you open the fridge too far, you hit the stove. If you open the drawer to get silverware out you cannot open it all the way because it hits the side of the stove and stops. The table was part of the countertop and had 2 very hard wood chairs with no padding at all. However, it was the only place to set up a laptop to answer my bosses emails. However, you cannot sit on the hard kitchen chairs too long, because it is just not comfortable for sitting in for more than 10 to 15 minutes. The designated business center had nice computers with printers, but the chairs sat so low that that the keyboard was the same level as my chin. The coffee maker still had the previous owner's coffee grounds and paper filter in it, the tub was filthy and they had to come and clean it, the stove top had grease splattered all over it and had to be cleaned, the garbage disposal was full of food (maybe potatoes) from I guess the previous person or maybe even the person before that. We ran lots of water in the sink and ran the garbage disposal, but the food that was sitting in it never did go down. The hot tub was located in a room behind the unit (shared between 4 units). It was a 4 seater, but the jets to 1 seat did not work. We tried the recreation area, which is the local gym and it was pretty nice, with the exception that the day we went the showers were not working because they had no hot water. It is not the quality that I am used to with Worldmark, but it is starting to become what I expect from Wyndham. If you are going to visit this resort in spite of all the negative reviews on here, you definitely want a 1 bedroom deluxe or bigger. Only get the 1 bedroom standard if you want to feel like you are on a camping trip or if you plan to eat out every day. ALSO, BE AWARE THAT THE PICTURES THEY POST ON THE WEBSITE ARE NOT PICTURES OF THE UNIT YOU ARE GOING TO STAY IN. WHERE WE STAYED AND THE INSIDE OF THE ROOMS LOOKED ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY NOTHING AT ALL LIKE THE PICTURES ON THE WEBSITE. ON THE WEBSITE IT LOOKS SPACIOUS AND LUXURIOUS AND IN PERSON THE APPLIANCES ARE FROM THE LATE 70'S EARLY 80'S AND EVERYTHING IS SMALL AND COMPACT.

The Pagosa Resort is a "mixed bag of tricks" in our opinion. We stayed at Eagle's Loft area in June 2017. The unit was clean but dated. However, the geese and their droppings, the swarms of midges, and the mosquitoes down by the water made the location extremely taxing. We could not go outside to enjoy the patio or the beautiful view without keeping our mouths shut for fear of swallowing the midges with each breath that we took. It was challenging to get from the car to the upstairs room without either stepping on the goose poop or breathing in the midges.

On the flip side, there were so many fun things to do in Pagosa Springs that we regularly escaped from our unit and enjoyed the nearby areas. Next time we might ask for a different location. Since this is primarily a Wyndham resort with just a handful of units designated for WorldMark owners, I'm not sure how well that request would be handled.

Here is the link to the pictures we took of our unit in the Eagle's Loft area as well as the beautiful view from our unit (oh how I wish we could have been outside to enjoy the view): https://photos.google.com/u/1/album/AF1QipM5SFjV6EcWwH1Q88gfzFV3tCIeIVRrUOgbe9o7

We are staying at Eagles Loft. There is goose poop everywhere. Can't use the grills or take a walk because the hundred or so geese have made a deposit. I saw a guy pushing a shovel over the blacktop, but haven't seen him over the week end. That 18 hole miniature golf couse has seen better days. The indoor/outdoor carpet is rolled up ion several holes and cups are filled with muddy water. No one under 14 are allowed in the gym, even if accompanied by an adult. The unit itself is dated with decor from maybe when they were new in the 80's including fake, dusty, wood blinds . Only 3 more nights to endure.

We have just arrived for our 4th annual visit to Wyndham Pagosa. We booked this reservation through a Wyndham owner and are checked-in as their guest. We've been assigned a 1BR Deluxe ("A" side, the larger half) unit in the Peregrine section. The unit is fresh all around - including a brand new jetted tub located as its own fully covered/surround building off the back patio. Very relieved and happy for this room assignment.

We are currently staying at Village Point (1 bedroom - Unit 7530A). It is in beautiful shape. We even have a Jacuzzi bath tub. Furniture is in great shape. I do find almost all sofa beds uncomfortable so that's pretty much a given. All appliances are new and we have a terrific view. The room was immaculate when we arrived. The kitchen is small & so is the table, but there is plenty of room for 4 people. The staff is friendly, helpful, and everyone of them will go out of their way for you. With so much to do here, we are never in the room anyway except to sleep and occasionally eat. It is not a studio. It's a one bedroom with a balcony. We have stayed at Pagosa over 20 times and never had a complaint. It is probably our favorite resort and we have been to more than half the Worldmark Resorts. Pagosa is an older resort but it is both beautiful & comfortable here.

We are staying at Village Point in a one bedroom. It is a glorified studio, the only difference being it does have a separate bedroom. It is an old school lock off unit.

Kitchen is ridiculous. You have a mini 4 burner stove, about a foot of counter space and a full size dishwasher. No typical WM starter kit of spices, etc. There was some coffee and sugar/substitute. The table is about 3 feet in circumference with 2 chairs. The other 2 chairs are against the wall, but lets be real, the table will not hold 4 people.

There is a sleeper sofa, uncomfortable at best after awhile.

The unit is sorely in need of maintenance. We can't open the windows because one window lock in broken, another screen is propped open at the bottom, and the other has holes in the screens, bugs will get in. Peeling paint on the back side.

The toaster, coffee pot, blender are on top of an apartment size fridge. I pulled the coffee maker down to make coffee in the morning after we got here, and it still had the old filter and grounds, and was dirty to boot. So housekeeping gets an F in this department. There is one plug in on your mini counter. No room to have more than one kitchen appliance.

The highlight of this unit is the view from the bedroom deck of the lake.

Other than that, if you come here for a one bedroom and they say Village Point, to coin an old phrase, just say NO.

We have been to Pagosa more than 10 times. We love it. It is an older resort, but it's still great. They have tons of units, with 8 different types of units. Teal Landing & Village Pointe are by the lake and have sleeper sofas, no Murphy beds. The only unit with Murphy Beds is Peregrine and it has a hot tub that is shared with your neighbor. Eagle's Loft is also located near the lake. It has a spiral staircase that goes down to a big jacuzzi tub and it goes up to a loft with 2 double beds. Both Eagle's Loft and Mountain Meadows are 2 bedroom but they sleep 8 people. You need to climb maybe 15 stairs to get in to Eagles Loft. Elk Run , Peregrine and Ptarmigin are on the golf course. Don't know much about Ptarmagin or Master's Place. The resort offers mini golf, golf, fishing, hiking trails, shuffleboard, tennis, horseshoes, and basketball. You will be given passes to use the Community Center which offers a pool, jacuzzi, exercise equipment, yoga room, raquetball & basketball. The resort also has an activity center that offers activities for both adults and children (Wine and cheese social, tie dye, arts and crafts, boogie bingo, s' more and ice cream soda socials. The resort offers discount tickets to many nearby activities including the don't miss Durango Silverton Train and Pagosa Hot Springs. Great resort for famlies or couples.
