Marriott's Shadow Ridge Hotel Review: On some days Marriott’s Shadow Ridge looks like the setting of a mommy bloggers convention with throngs of women and children gathered at the pool. That's because this time-share colony, which opens its doors to those looking for a few days of R&R, features family-friendly apartment-style villas with fully equipped kitchens and model-home inspired interiors with soaking tubs and golf course views. To ensure a resort experience, there are swimming pools, tennis courts, restaurants, yoga classes, a fitness center and kids' activities, but the real draw is the challenging golf course designed by Nick Faldo --- the on-site golf school bears his name. For those seeking a serious golf escape, packages are available.
