So, lemme start by saying yes; we absolutely booked solely due to High School Musical 2 being shot here. How could we not?
Anyways - upon arriving, we were immediately star struck. The surrounding rock formations were so incredibly close and the area was so isolated.
The check-in process was seamless. I opted in for the self check-in and was able to retrieve my keys and garage opener using the lockers out front. They included a map and information regarding the property & stay.
Upon getting into our suite, we were in awe. The full size kitchen loaded with everything you need & a KILLER view (NOT TO MENTION THE HEATED VENTS UNDER THE CABINETS!?), the living room with the fireplace at the push of a button, the washer/dryer was an awesome amenity to use our swimsuits in, the jetted tub in the bathroom, and lastly: THE BED WITH A FIREPLACE. The bed was extremely comfortable. We just knew it was very well cleaned and sanitized. 10/10
WE STAYED IN COBIN BLUE’S SUITE & WE JUST ABOUT DIED!!
The pool was amazing. It’s by reservation only due to covid so we were three of six people in that area in the evening, and the morning we were three of four. We had our Sharpay & Ryan moment, as well as our Troy & Gabriella “taking a break” moment. The pool is heated, allowing us to enjoy it even with the cold surroundings.
We ate at the Grille (OF COURSE) and we were very pleasantly delighted with the service and the food!!
The CHIPS AND DIP. HOLY HELL. WHAT A STAPLE. HONESTLY, WORTH GOING TO THIS PLACE JUST FOR THAT. But all the other food was great too!
The vegetarian French Dip was everything I hoped for and more!
But then, THE MANAGER OF THE RESTAURANT SO HAPPENED TO HAVE BEEN IN HSM2. We got to talk with him a bit when he OFFERED US A TOUR.
HE GAVE US A TOUR OF DIFFERENT SCENES, TOLD US ABOUT THE ACTORS, GAVE US THE INSIDE SCOOP. It. Was. Magical.
The front desk also has a print out showing what rooms the actors stayed in, what they spent their time doing and other fun facts!!
Overall, my stay here was FABULOUS. I will be back and bring my family to enjoy the gorgeous views, amazing service, fantastic food and the decadent pool.
Please never change!!
