We stayed one night for the kickoff of a Classic Car Caravan. The resort is undergoing much-needed renovations so it was a little difficult to navigate and find the check-in area. Staff seemed friendly enough and helped the elderly in the group with their luggage, however golf carts would have been helpful to shuttle folks to the parking lot. We enjoyed an all-you-can eat buffet dinner and breakfast in the Opera Hall, which was good (not spectacular). The Hall offers plenty of space for organizations and large groups. There was about 50-60 people in our group. The sound system echoed and half the room couldn't hear the speaker so eventually we stopped using it. The scenery is beautiful and it's very quite and peaceful at the resort. Love the walk-in shower and large counters. The rooms were very large and spacious but the iPod station was outdated and therefore useless for charging our iPhone 5/6. And for the price, the rooms should include a mini fridge. Hopefully these amenities will be added with the renovations.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 days, while he attended leadership classes. The resort was clean but outdated. A renovation is currently underway on a section of the resort. We moved out of our original room because the mini fridge had mold in the freezer. The next room was a little larger, had new sinks, mirrors, new shower ( with 1 glass sliding door), making puddles on the bathroom floor, every time you showered. The pull-out sofa was old and musky. Pros- Great room views of pool, tennis court and surrounding mountains. All of the meals were excellent.

1 night stay but wish it was longer. Lovely situation. Great pool, friendly staff. We had a suite and a balcony, fabulous views. Peaceful, worth a visit. Would love to return at a later date and enjoy the desert and all it has to offer

The Carefree Resort is located in a scenic area north of Phoenix, Arizona. Our double Queen room had a balcony overlooking the desert and surrounding mountains. The buildings all have nice desert landscaping and there are tennis courts a spa and a swimming pool. There is a restaurant but we opted to drive to another one nearby.

Carefree Conference Center & Resort was a hidden gem. I attended a conference here and it was excellent. The rooms were huge and very comfortable. The service and staff was extremely good! This is not a modern resort, however I really liked the atmosphere. Very quiet and peaceful. I would definitely consider staying here again.
