What struck us from the beginning was the bad mood that we could sense at almost all employees.
Only the lady in the US Polo Assn shop was a complete different story, the staff was very friendly and assisting.

As there are plenty of malls in and around LV we would rather recommend to choose a different one.

Primm Valley Golf Club - Lakes Course

Designed by award winning architect, Tom Fazio, the "Lakes Course" plays at 6,950 yards to a par 71.

Reviewed By Bigredmachine

This was our second trip to Primm Valley golf club; the first time we played the Desert course and this time we played the Lakes course. The two courses have very similar undulating greens and hole designs (routing and elevation changes). The main difference between the two layouts is the fairways. The lakes course has much more generous landing areas and more trees, water and vegetation lining the holes. If you are a straight hitter, you won't have any problems on either course, but if you play with a wee-bit of a hook or slice, you'll find the Lakes course more forgiving. Both courses have sculpted fairways that direct errant balls back towards the middle of the fairways. Because of the wider fairways and trees, the Lakes course looks more green and lush, which is probably why it gets better reviews. However, we did not find any difference in scoring on the two courses and have had a great time playing both. The fairways and greens were in very good shape for December 23rd, but other parts of the course seem to be lacking in maintenance, such as rough areas and particularly the green side sand bunkers. The sand bunkers have about 1/4 inch of sand sprinkled over a rock hard bottom. You'll quickly learn to play a ball out of the sand like you are chipping off hard pan. Try a normal sand shot and you'll likely find yourself on the other side of the green from the sand wedge bouncing off the hard bottom into your ball. Overall, I don't believe either course is worth their regular full rate, but for what we paid, we enjoyed playing the Lakes course in the middle of winter.

Desperado Roller Coaster

at Primm Valley Casino Resorts

Reviewed By mod-travellers - Palm Springs, California

First, the posted warnings are true. The ride is fast, furious and rough. The jarring is REAL but that is part of the thrill! While it mostly surrounds the outside of the casino, Buffalo Bills, part of the ride goes inside of the active casino as well! It is not the only thrill for kids of most ages. There are others inside and out of the casino. Rides are NOT open all year and are only during certain times of the year and specific days of the week. I would consult their website and check the calendar or give them a call of this part of the stay is your goal.
Again, don't try to put your elderly grandmother or anyone with phobias or a tender body on this thing - that would be cruel! It is really for those who are physically hardy enough to enjoy the thrill, the drops, the heights and the jarring. It is NOT for the faint hearted. We see too many wet bottoms exiting this thing, from people who peed a wee bit (or a lot). Fortunately there is a bathroom nearby once you exit the coaster!

There is NOTHING in Jean. Primm is a few miles farther from Las Vegas and on the Nevada/California border. It is an XLNT venue for what it is. Great sound and more than adequate lighting. Seating is plastic stackable chairs. Bar service is a short walk as is restrooms. They feature country and older acts. We have seen the following; Reba, twice, great show. Frankie Valli, great show. Gladys Knight, great show. Englebert, great show. Liza Minelli, good show where she was trying out new material. Neal Sedaka, good show for a well-worn pro, as was the show from Paul Anka. Beach Boys was a drag because after the opening number, they encourage the audience to stand. Since standing was not our desire, we spent the next hour LISTENING to the Beach Boys and watching a row of 60 year old wiggling and shaking tushes at much too close range. We gave that show a walking ovation.

Sandy Valley Ranch

Imagine riding through the desert, watching a summer sunset from the back of your horse, or taking off for a day or just a few hours to explore 197,000 acres of prime sage and mesquite range land. We offer trail rides of all types. Whichever you choose, you can ride the range, play with cows, and enjoy lip smackin' Western barbeque.

We booked a sunset ride through Tony at Sandy Valley Ranch after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. Tony was very helpful and after a bit organisation the evening was booked.

We arrived at Sandy Valley Ranch a tad late after a slow trip out of Vegas (sorry Tony) and we had a warm welcome from 'Frosty' our Rancher for the evening. After signing a waiver (obvious reasons), Frosty offered us some drinks and then we were shown to our horses for the evening. My Wife's horse was Luna and mine was Tank. We explained to Frosty that we had not ridden in about 20-30 years and were complete novices so we asked for a gentle ride around the ranch. This was not a problem and we both hugely enjoyed a slow canter with Frosty and his daughter. Seeing this part of the world on horseback with a sunset is something we will never forget. When we got back to the ranch, we were treated to a feast for an evening meal! It was one of the best burgers I have ever had!! We were supplied with drinks we wanted and after dinner Frosty treated us to a campfire with marshmallows. Absolute magic!!

Overall this ranch is worth the trip from the hustle and bustle of Vegas! Sandy Valley is basically an hours run in the car, but it is 100 years from Sin City! If you fancy escaping for a day or evening and you would like being a Cowboy or Cowgirl for the day, then Sandy Valley should be high on your list!

Primm Valley Golf Club

Reviewed By mauiwolf - Las Vegas, Nevada

I've always liked the two courses here and they were always in great condition. But this visit gave me a course that looked like they've fired their superintendent and no one knows what to do. There were weeds everywhere. The fairways looked like there were ten different kinds of grass growing. The greens had some spotty areas. The bunkers were lacking sand and the plastic liner was poking out all over the place. It was disappointing.

I like the layout. It's a fun round. But the conditioning needs to improve. Even the bathrooms in the clubhouse look like no one cares.

Primm Center

Reviewed By Bonnie C - Corona, California

It is next door to the Primm Resort so you can stay inside to walk over. The hours are 10a-8p; 7 days/week. So convenient in that regard. They also have a food court, so if you can't find anything 'healthy' at Primm walk on over. La Salsa has good fish tacos!!!
You won't find 'deals' that you think you might. I did find a few items at Wms/Sonoma and Nike is not a deal place. Same prices as what you would pay in the stores, a few discounts.
If you are a serious shopper, then you have lots to choose.

Primm Valley Golf Club - Desert Course

This 18-hole golf course, part of the Primm Resorts, changes elevation frequently and offers magnificent views of the surrounding area of mountains and desert.

Reviewed By Chris M - Elk Grove Village, Illinois

Been coming to Vegas for several years now with 12 to 16 friends. Golf comes first! We always include the Primm Desert Course for one of our stops for the week we are here. Beautifully kept up, fantastic views of the mountains and a truly fair track to play for all skill levels. It really helps if you have a slight draw off the tee! The ball rolls for miles! Like they say "Nothing rolls like a ball! " is quite true here. Staff from pro shop to grounds crew were helpful, friendly and willing to go the extra mile to serve. We will keep this destination on our list for as long as we keep this tradition going. There are a lot of options for golf in Vegas, make sure you make Primm Desert one of them!

Buffalo Bill's Hotel & Casino

An amusement park known for the Desperado roller coaster, the fastest and second tallest in the world.

Reviewed By Anna V

We stopped to eat at Dennis restaurant inside Buffalo Bill's. The customer service was amazing. The price of the food was excellent. The only thing I wasn't fully satisfied was the wait time to get our food. We had to wait about 25 to 30 minutes to get the food we had ordered. It was only about three of us. I looked around to see if the food was being served faster to other people and it wasn't. It seemed the majority of us had to wait for the food from 20 to 30 minutes. Other than the wait time, everything else was great.
