Hair in the shower, hair/crumbs in the bed, sheets were wrinkled (slept in) and not even tucked in, plastic garbage from another guest on the floor, spider crawling on the pillow (not their fault but still -- ew). When reported to front desk, they said they couldn't refund because room was paid for through third party but offered free breakfast instead. I declined because I wouldn't eat there based on the cleanliness of the room. Property is pretty, though.

The location is tuck away in a very secluded location. There was a golf course, restaurant that looked good. The lobby and check in was great. The reason for the 3 stars - the beds were horrible. I would have been more comfortable on the floor. Most of the bedding was great and soft. But the duvet had been to the laundry to often and the feathers were in bunches. It is really a beautiful place but the key to a wonderful place to stay is the bed. Without a good nights sleep, it is a waste.

What a find! This place may be getting on in years, but the plus side to that is the gorgeous setting in pristine and spectacular desert, with really great views and walks locally. I even heard coyotes howling at night! The room was a tad lackluster but had everything I needed. The landscaping is TERRIFIC, the desert plants are real interesting. I wish the view from the room had been other than the parking lot, but that was my choice not to upgrade. The resort is pretty big, with tennis courts and a great pool area which enjoys views to Black Mountain to the west, with those spectacular Arizona sunsets. If you're in the restaurant, you see the view too. Restaurant is pretty good - the food and house wine were, although service was a bit on the slow side. The bar area is a real throwback, and enjoyable for it, and the barfood was very good. Try the lobster mac and cheese with your dirty martini!

This hotel has a lovely view and a nice vibe but the rooms are very out of date. The employees are wonderful. The bar is great. The food is also quite good though the service is very slow. Front desk is also very helpful. No working a/c in my suite.

I thought the resort was really pretty! The large tennis courts were fun, the old time theme and grounds were fun to adventure & see. The pool is big & heated, nice jacuzzi too. But the room we were given did not face anything pretty. It was "down stairs" and faced a concrete wall with a parking lot behind it. Also, was told that all taxes were paid for by Expedia ...but we had a "resort fee" added on & more tax before leaving!?!
