TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 6 days ago

We arrived in the evening having flown in from the UK. When we checked in it was dark but first impressions were good. Prestigious and well appointed lobby with an inviting bar area. The guy who checked us in said we had been upgraded. I should have trusted my instincts and made specific enquiries about our booked room and it’s location and the “upgraded” casita. The casita was away from the main hotel below the pool complex. The room itself was fine and again well appointed. Ridiculously in 2017 this hotel still clearly thinks it makes commercial sense to charge guests for Wi-Fi. It cost $12.50 to use the slower of the two options. This is the US of A for crying out loud, it’s supposed to be a leading developed economy and this hotel still thinks it’s right to charge for Wi-Fi. Go to Hoi-An in Vietnam and there is free high speed wi-Fi in the hotels and in the taxis! We were woken up at 7am by an angle grinder /drill right outside our balcony. Two workmen had started working on a water feature alongside our casita block. It got worse because across the lawn there was a full blown construction site with workmen, saws, grinders, plant etc. Working on the construction of a new gym complex. At that point we thought we’d ring reception and look to change our room (3 hours later and they had still not returned our enquiry and yet the website was showing vacancies for that night). Whilst waiting (as it turned out in vain) to hear about the room change we went up for breakfast just above the pool area. We were then met by yet more builders and workmen who were working on a children’s play area and a new pool bar restaurant. The time was now 7:45am. At breakfast at times you couldn’t even hear the background music because the sound of drills and circular saws drowned it out. So far that was 4 construction areas near our room: the gym, the water feature, the children’s play area and the new pool bar/restaurant. Things weren’t looking good for a relaxing day by the pool but there was a lower pool area that we had yet to look at. After the breakfast shared with 20 workmen and their tools, we took a walk to look over the rest of the hotel. Lo and behold there was yet another huge construction project complete with an operating JCB digger 30 yards from the adults only lower pool. We went backed to the room and checked straight out. No one from the front desk or management was in the slightest bit apologetic for our experience. Their website fails to disclose that there are significant construction works with attendant noise in progress. The gym construction has only just started and the building by the lower pool has at least another two to three months to go. Awful experience and inexcusable failure by the hotel to disclose the ongoing construction.

The hotel is beautiful with a wonderful lobby bar and outdoor area that was most enjoyable during our October visit. We enjoyed the indoor and outdoor area in the afternoon and evening and the service in both places was exceptional. The restaurant was also very good with equally good service. The accomodations were nicely appointed and had nice balconies. The sun does come up early on the balcony so if that is important to you - make a note of it. There are three pool areas and an adult pool with more than adequate space, pool staff and wait staff. The weather was perfect. The Spa is under construction so if that is an issue it will not be complete until February. It does have a small facility in the main hotel, but the fitness center is not as easily accessible. That was the only inconvenience we experienced.

The hotel grounds are lovely, with sprawling lawns and extensive pathways. In fact, the hotel backs up to Camelback Mountain, making it an ideal place to stay if hiking the famed peak is your goal. To be fair, it's an older property, and the furniture is a dated, but it's well maintained, and the staff is very friendly. If you have kids, they'll love the pools and waterslide, and if you're traveling as a couple, there's plenty of serenity to be found as well.

We are regulars at the Afternoon Tea, and we are not impressed with the changes that have now taken place. There is no longer the glorious chandelier or water fountain when you first walk into the hotel, but that's a different story. Just recently we went in for tea after the renovation and everything was different. Before the renovation, the afternoon tea was ideal. The kind and talented gentleman who once played the beautiful steinway piano is now playing a cheap keyboard in the corner of the room, which can barely be heard. It is degrading to the musician, and makes the tea experience incomplete. PLEASE get the steinway back. It added class to the hotel. The only thing that hasn't changed is the incredible service, including Wanda and Natalie, who are the most wonderful and kind people who take excellent care of their customers. All of the staff are exceptional.

I've just returned from Girls' Weekend (Halloween weekend). We were upgraded to a larger room with a huge patio - very lovely (reserved with SPG points). The customer service is legendary. It started before I ever arrived. I called to make a reservation at the steak house and started talking with Felicia Gasparro who listened to my questions and wish list regarding my upcoming weekend and within a few minutes she emailed me with answers to my questions and had set up 2 other reservations for me within the resort. Ms. Gasparro also sent me a list of suggested dining off of the resort for the one night we wanted to go out. Perfection! On a whim we decided to try Relish out on the golf course! The bellman drove us there in a golf cart and the whole experience was delightful. Additionally, at Relish a woman had gotten her gold chain from her Givenchy handbag stuck in the wood of the outdoor dining table. We watched in awe as the staff practically took the table apart to rescue her bag, all the time assuring the woman that it was no trouble and they were actually enjoying themselves. The food and atmosphere at Relish were just what we were looking for that night - don't miss it. It was opening weekend for Mowry & Cotton and we went there. Our muscles dish was not properly cooked and when we pointed it out the dish was removed with apology, removed from our bill, a fresh complimentary bottle of bubbly was brought out and an additional bottle of bubbly was given to us via coupon. It was all very nice. My one issue was with the lighting - a little too bright. The lower pool (I think it's called the PEARL) was our favorite because the view is best from there. We had quite a bit of delicious rose' while under umbrellas or wading in that glorious pool. Service at the pool(s) was top notch. I do miss the pretty bright yellow cabanas, however. The new sand color is a miss in my opinion. Quick overviews: Tea in the Thirsty Camel was so delicious! And they had gluten free options for my friend (we should have called ahead but forgot but they still had options for her). 5 stars! The Thirsty Camel was marvelous! J&G Steakhouse. Great views, good service, (call Felicia), food was great and the bartender made my friend a custom cocktail for her birthday. Spendy Relish - Fun! Yummy food and a great mini escape. Mowry and Cotton - We thought our veggie starters were da'bomb! The potatoes were so good we could have eaten them at every meal. Spa: Patricia at the spa was really great. She listened, she didn't push product on me and she had a nice touch during my facial. When the new spa opens it should be spectacular. I can't wait to go back to the Phoenician!
