We have been staying yearly at Boulders Resort each year since 1996 and have always enjoyed our stay. The resort, the employees, the amenities and the golf have always been above par. However, this time, we were less than pleased. The main lodge and all that it emcompasses is being renovated. While I applaud them for updating the property, we... More

The Boulders is one of our favorite places to stay. The outstanding staff is always so friendly and accommodating. The concierge always gives the best suggestions for places to dine. We have never been disappointed. Best of all, we always feel relaxed and rested after our stay.

My wife and I had a short stay at this resort and I wish that we had extended our time here! The staff, amenities and grounds were exceptional. The food served at the restaurants was top notch along with the service. We never left the grounds because all we needed was at our call. We highly recommend this property for... More

This was our third visit to Boulders resort and it has never disappointed. We came first in 2008 and then in 2011 and finally managed a two night stay this time. The casitas are beautiful and this time we were upgraded to a three room villa which was superb. The resort is stunning as you wander through the desert gardens... More

This hotel is kind of outdated. The casitas are a great concept, but seem a bit old. The service was good and the staff were all friendly. I just felt that given the location, this property should be much more modern and up to date. The surrounding scenery is beautiful and the golf course looks amazing.

The rooms are very large,the beds are really comfortable and the service ( with exception of room service)was awesome. Now, on to room service. The first morning we ordered breakfast the night before because we had an appointment . The desk... More

I just returned to the Boulders after a number of years. What a beautiful and relaxing spot, even in the middle of the summer! The service they provided for my business meeting was outstanding. I enjoyed downtime in the spa and took a nice walk around the golf course in the morning...so peaceful! The casitas are large and very comfortable.... More

Even in the summer this is a spectacular resort. The rooms and patio are private, spacious, beautifully furnished, and one feels far away from the city of Scottsdale as this is an oasis. The landscaping, spa, restaurants and friendly and always helpful make it a special place.

After a lengthy road trip we needed somewhere special to relax, the Boulders is THE place. Excellent service, good restaurants and whether or not you play golf, it is still a very interesting resort owing to its unique location of natural beauty. You can be as lazy or as active as you like with trails to walk and wildlife in... More

We stayed one night midweek in July. Pros: This property is absolutely gorgeous. You really cannot ask for a more scenic location in the Phoenix metro area. The rooms are spacious, nicely appointed, and quiet. Our room looked out over a boulder and our patio was a fantastic place to sit and sip a cup of coffee in the morning.... More
