Reviews for Carefree Resort & Conference Center
An excellent hotel/resort with a large pool, free wi-fi, fridge, tea/coffee making facilities. Lovely views and the villas/lodges surrounded by the cacti. Very relaxing with friendly staff. Restaurant was good.

This is such a lovely little town and a great resort to stay at when attending Spring Training baseball games. The prices EVERYWHERE this time of year are ridiculous but staying at this beautiful somewhat secluded resort makes it a little less painful. We have stayed at the Carefree Resort and Conference center 3 years in a row and we will continue to stay here. It is only a short drive into Scottsdale for the games, shopping and dining and when you get up in the morning or come back in the evenings the surrounding local is simply breathtaking. The pool is so warm and inviting and the gardens are so peaceful and lovely that there is no better place for the money. The first year and this year we stayed in a king room that was large, clean and lovely, last year we stayed in a double queen room that was not quite as nice as the king room but was still clean and it had a refrigerator that the King rooms do not have. Last year there was a conference going on the this year and the previous year was not happening and I have to say it is calmer when it is just resort guests and NOT conference attendees but we still had no issues. We ate one evening in the resorts restaurant and had a steak which was delicious! The staff are very friendly and attentive. Upon arriving our room was warm and after messing with the thermostat the room just got warmer, called the front desk and within 5 minutes two workers came right over and fixed the issue. Nice comfortable room for the rest of our stay!

We stayed at Carefree Resort for my niece's nearby wedding this past weekend. Overall, my husband and I were happy with the accommodations. Our few issues included hearing a woman shuffle a deck of cards in the next room, not being assured of the availability of a rental mini fridge (during most unseasonably hot weather), and problems with a room service order (although we were generously compensated with gift cards towards another meal). I specifically would like to mention Diane in concierge who was incredibly helpful and a pleasure to work with, as well as Tyler, the young man who took our reservations over the phone.

We had a short stay. After sunset through sunrise. The decor was lovely. American West and Cowboy style. The cactus gardens and pool are vast and nearly meticulous. No shower head on our shower in an updated bathroom, like many others, where the water has no boundary so it soaks the whole bathroom floor. Skimpy on the towels which were needed to mop the floor. One bath towel per person but a beach towel for each was a nice addition. The experience was a strange mix of luxury, beautiful decor and out of date motel rooms. We should have accepted the offer for "assistance with luggage". The parking is so very far from the rooms even though we are very fit the trek was too long. Browse the gardens carefully b/c private residences surround the resort and there are no boundaries nor signs. We were admiring oranges and grapefruit on trees by the tennis court until we realized we were in someone's yard.

We were here for a scheduled event at the resort. The staff were amazing! Professional, friendly, efficient, and accommodating - from shuttle drivers and the concierge, front desk to restaurant staff and housekeeping. Our room was really nice, big, great view of the pool area, and clean. The food we had at the restaurant was also really good: pizza, chicken ceasar salad, baked chicken, and dessert! The resort offers shuttle service to both Carefree and Cave Creek every hour on the hour and drivers are very helpful in offering suggestions and getting you where you need to go (ie: the grocery store, etc). One note about getting to Carefree, if you're not going to rent a car, line-up a car ahead of time to get there from the airport. We took a cab from the airport (it's almost and hour) and it was not a very good experience. We worked through the concierge at the resort to have a town car take us to the airport at the end of our stay, it was less expensive than the cab, and a much better experience. Because we were at the resort for an indoor event, we didn't get to spend much time outside, but the grounds were very well kept and beautiful to look at/walk by. The separate building where our groups dinner/function was held was also very nice.
