Reviews for Carefree Resort & Conference Center
This property is absolutely beautiful it is older but the grounds are taken care of very well. It even has a great story to go along with it. I hate to say it but don't fall for a suite in the Casitas the regular rooms on the resort side are much better with better views. The staff is wonderful especially Tammy at the front desk. Brian Bishop will stop at nothing to make your stay perfect. We are from Southern Arizona so we are used to the desert even with all the beauty we are surrounded with we are still impressed with this Resort. You're only a couple miles from some of the coolest bars in the state. Harold's has amazing food, Buffalo Chip has live bull riding and across the street The Hideaway is probably one of the best motorcycle themed bars I've ever seen. We're always sad to leave but looking forward to the next stay.
I really enjoyed this place. The pool area was amazing. Not too many families staying there. So if your a family without kids which I am you will really enjoy the peace and quiet if that is what you are looking for. The lounge and restaurant has amazing food. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend.

just had the one night at the carefree and was not disappointed never thought sand and cacti good look so good the grounds of the hotel are beautiful and well worth a walk around. the hotel is very nice staff are great the rooms are clean and comfortable with wifi etc, .the pool area is one of the best I have seen since I have started coming to the usa very relaxing, we did not eat in the restaurant on the night but did have breakfast which was first class . the only downside was that we only stayed one night .

The rooms are all non smoking, it was clean and comfortable. The staff was wonderful answering all our questions. They even have a shuttle that takes you in a 3 mile radius! There is a fitness center, spa, restaurant and picnic area. There was also a pool, and they supply pool towels. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. It was very relaxing and quiet also.
When we got to the hotel (it is not really a resort), we had a really good first impression. We arrived early and the receptionist still let us check in early. But the rooms really need some updating - I felt like in the 80th when we when we got to the room. We went there to visit the Balloon Festival and for this reason it was a good stay - they even provided a shuttle that ran all nite to bring guest back and forth to the hotel. 5 stars for the staff and 3 stars for the hotel and its amenities.
