We had a lovely stay at the Boulders property May 2015. The Spa was outstanding and the property is authentic Sonora beauty. We were looking for the desert feel and Boulders does deliver on that. We were in the villas and they were spacious accommodations. I would definitely return to this property.

Gorgeous setting w cacti and trees blooming, birds chirping. Booked what I thought was two bedroom but instead was a three bedroom house. Nice decor. Lovely private landscaped backyard w patio and grill. Private home serviced by hotel. Shuttles were easy to call and fast to arrive. Spa and gym top notch. Tennis facilities very nice and easy to book.... More

We have stayed here twice and already booked 2 weeks foe next spring. There are no superlatives that can cover our experiences here, with few exceptions. The desert views and little quail are a delight. The lobby bar is a perfect spot for relaxing and enjoying a light dinner.

My husband, our fourteen year old son, and I spent a week in March of 2015 at The Boulders. We loved it. It is a beautiful resort, the two golf courses are well maintained and fun to play, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and important to us, the food is really really good. We stayed in a villa... More

I spent a week at The Boulders; 2 days were vacation and the rest was business. This is a dreamy place and you feel incredibly well looked after while you're here. The Spa is one of the best I've ever been to - and the Spa cafe has a great menu. The accommodations are of a high quality - sumptuous... More

We Love The Boulders so much that we are definitely going to buy a Winter residence here. We have been twice in the last two years and stayed over a week both times. The hotel is beautiful, the staff wonderful, the weather unbelievable, and the food fabulous. And it is a good value at many times of the year. I... More

Overall The Boulders is a great place. Many places to hike, run, jog. The casitas are very nice - get one with a desert view. A lot of wild animals to see. The night sky is beautiful. The South Course at the Golf course is amazing - great photo ops as well as a wonderful desert course to play.

My husband and I went for my niece's wedding. The wedding arrangements could not have been any nicer. Normally we would not have splurged for a resort at this price, but glad we got the opportunity to do so for this event. Grounds and lodge were excellent. Staff was extremely helpful and pleasant.

We recently stayed in a 2 bedroom Saguaro villa with a family of 4. It was beautifully decorated and has every amenity you could ask for. It has a Jacuzzi off the master bedroom. The grounds were very well manicured and spread out in a natural setting. The staff is always at your call and very happy to help you... More
