Furnace creek ranch death valley
We have stayed here 3 times in the past and just love it. however, we were shocked when we arrived this time. we had had no prior warning that there was work being carried out here. in fact the whole place (apart from roms) has been knocked down. thats the saloon/restaurant/gift shop/groceries....all gone. instead there were some make shift buildings. the restaurant is really a canteen with a smal bar area and the groceries are in with the pro golf shop. we arrived after a long drive (we all do) and wanted to get a bottle of beer/wine to have on our balcony/room. sorry they said we do not sell any alcohol ... only in the bar. if you want to buy any you need to go to the village 20miles down the road ( which we passed on the way). i underestand that this will look fantastic when finished, but it doesnt help me now. i was so disapointed with it. it used to be a little gem in the middle of a desert, and im sure it will again when they finish sometime this year, but again it didnt help me. so anyone traveling in the not too distant future please be aware..... also the food in the restaurant is very limited. unofrtunately i am gluten intolerant and do not eat meat ( i do eat fish) but there was nothing for me to eat only salad. even breakfast they had no gluten free bread...so poor.
