Although it's 17 miles from the strip, Montelago Village is well worth the drive. The accommodations are great and you get much more for much less than staying on the strip. This time we stayed in the Luna Di Lusso section of the Montelago Village condominiums. We normally stay in the Viera section. The unit 420 was very nice with full kitchen facilities so we could cook all of our meals without going out to eat. It is a one bedroom with a separate living area and dining area. The floors are all vinyl wood. The unit is on the top floor 4. There are 5 floors in Luna, however, there is no unit above 420. So the view of the area is nice and it is very quiet. That's a big deal to me. Although the village is upscale and beautiful, it has been declining since its inception in 2002. Most of the businesses and restaurants are closed and the casino has been closed for a few years now. The hotel has changed hands from the original Ritz Carlton, to Ravella to the now Hilton. Despite the decline, it looks like the area is thriving as a housing community. The condominiums are individually owned so they are maintained by the owners. Most are very nice and way better that a hotel unit. You will have to rent a car to stay here though as it is about a half hour drive to the strip. There is a grocery store in the village, however, there is an Albertsons grocery store just down Lake Mead road. The management staff was very helpful, especially since we required late arrival. I also had a couple of other questions which they expeditiously attended to. A nearby attraction which we like to visit is a little known place called the Clark County Wetlands Park. It is about 15 minutes from the village down Galleria Drive. It is a wetlands created from the Las Vegas wash, which is run off water, of which Lake Las Vegas was created from. It is great for a walk and viewing wildlife in the area. The lake and wash are not suitable for swimming. Water activities such as boating or fishing are available at the village however you cannot keep or eat the fish from the lake. Just a couple of comments about the unit. It could use a dresser in the bedroom to allow for unpacking a suitcase and putting clothes in some drawers. Also the Dish TV didn't seem to work well. There were 2 very nice TV's in the unit however most of the TV from Dish was just XM Radio. That wasn't a really big concern for us but something the management may want to look into.
