Stayed here in a 2 bedroom villa with some girlfriends for a spa weekend. The villa was HUGE. Plenty of room, we actually brought dinner in one evening and ate at the dining table. Kitchen has everything you could possibly need. Huge outdoor back patio with a jacuzzi (although too hot this time of year to use it) REALLY enjoyed... More

I have stayed at the Boulders twice and enjoyed it both times. The grounds are beautiful and definitely make you feel like you're in Arizona. My boyfriend and I saw a family of Javelinas near the pool this past weekend! Very authentic. You will not be disappointed.

I visit The Boulders Resort 2 or 3 times per year. I love it. I lived in Carefree in 1978, during my high school years, so I remember how it was then, and I see all the changes that have come to Carefree. The desert is glorious, but there is not place more perfect to rejuvenate the mind and body... More

The grounds are beautiful and the room we stayed in was very nice, lots of room and a great view with a patio. Everyone was so helpful and pleasant. The grounds are huge! You can do a lot of...

We stayed here with our 2 teenage sons. We rented a house with 3 bedrooms, full kitchen, hot tub, and patio. We really enjoyed the outdoor fireplace on our patio. Our sons loved climbing on the rock formations on the property. Guests of this resort must be prepared to walk a lot or call for shuttles. The shuttle service responded... More

Beautiful Hotel, the grounds are unbelievable. The staff from entry to the property to room service are just perfection. Very passionate and friendly. They are incredibly efficient with their operation. The golf course is STUNNING and fair to players of all levels. We couldn't take enough photos of it. The spa is fantastic, and their work was perfect. In a... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in August. Was expecting a lot from this hotel, however in some areas we were a little disappointed. The casita itself was fantastic, really clean, spacious, lovely big bathroom and walk in wardrobe and a balcony out the back. The resort was also really lovely and very picturesque. However, the resort was under construction,... More

Definitely a 5-star resort with so much to see and do. Great spa, golf course, grounds and more. The service is fabulous and the staff makes sure you are fully taken care of. Highly recommend whether you're there on business, with your significant other or family.
