If you are wanting a more "secluded" top-quality stay in the Phoenix metropolitan area, that has that "small-town" feel, and yet incredible championship golf at the foot of Superstition Mountain, and quaint casita-style accommodations, then Gold Canyon Golf Resort is the place to be! You can surely find more exquisite (and expensive) places to stay but you will NOT find... More

My wife and I stayed a weekend at Gold Canyon on one of their golf packages. We have stayed every year on our anniversary for the last 7. The resort seems to get better each time. The Dinosaur golf course was in great shape and the pace was excellent. The staff at the resort is always pleasant and helpful. We... More

We were going to Arizona for golf and to visit a sick friend. There were eight of us, some staying two nights and some staying three nights. This is a resort property that has been kept in good condition and has one of the great desert courses - Dinosaur Mtn. Prior to our visit we had several changes but the... More

Exceptional friendly and helpful staff at this golf resort in the desert. Rooms were comfortable with nice amenities (Aveda), bedding and towels Beautiful vistas from the restaurant's patio dining. And a great golf experience. We will go back and take some friends with us. Check out the desert landscaping and the hiking trails.

For the past three years, I and a friend have stayed here for a weekend, to attend the Ren Fest. I am already looking forward to next year! The casitas will become your favorite "other home" whether it is for a few days, or longer. There are ample amenities including a spa, cozy bar and decent restaurant. The view at... More

Our stay was wonderful! . The quiet casita with a private patio that offered a beautiful view of the mountains and visits from humming birds. Great food. The kind of trip you hope for but rarely find.

We celebrated our anniversary with this trip. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was included in the package and the cold food was fine for us. The room was clean and had been redecorated. We used the outdoor fireplace one evening. We would go again. Next time we will take our golf clubs. Bottled water is pricey so... More

We held my son and DIL's Welcome Party at GCGR and had guests for the wedding in 40+ rooms. Nicole who managed group room sales and Robert who was catering manager were both excellent! I'm not a golfer, but hear the golf was good. Because it is further outside of PHX and maybe not super high end (décor wise), the... More

I would like to start off by saying you pay for way more than what it's worth. The decor and layout is very outdated. When you use the restroom your knees touch the opposite wall! I will never stay here again if you want beautiful views and amazing casitas stay at the Boulders in North Phoenix. Almost forget about how... More
