Location, view and grounds are awesome. The staff everywhere were very nice. We stayed in a remolded room and were a number of things that still need attention. The over al room was nice and quiet ,but if we were paying the full amount during high seasonI would not be happy about that. We would return for sure but I... More

This extraordinary resort is, as the name indicates, a Sanctuary. The gorgeous accommodations are complimented by an attentive service-minded staff. Resort amenities are extraordinary from the world-class spa and , fitness center to the picturesque infinity pool. The Sanctuary is a foodies delight. Cuisine at Elements outstanding. Cocktails at the Jade bar are unforgettable.

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at the Sanctuary. What a great getaway. Staff is fabulous and the resort is top notch. Clean, quiet and very relaxing. Spa is wonderful and Elements has the best filet of beef I've ever eaten!

We live in Arizona and have never had the chance to stay at the Sanctuary. We booked a one-night stay-cation for ourselves and it was well worth the time. We enjoyed a Couple's Massage at the Spa and it was a lasting and most memorable experience from everything to the spa staff to the actual 90-minute massage. The grounds are... More

This hotel is the bomb. It is located on Camelback Mountain in Paradise Valley which is just south of Scottsdale. The negative edge pool and spa are phenomenal and the restaurant is wonderful - a foodies delight. Great place to have cocktails at night overlooking the pool ad mountain

The accommodations are tremendous. You get the feeling of privacy and solitude but have all the amenities at your fingertips. Service was impeccable and views to die for. I live in the area and will be back for another stay-cation very soon.

We stayed at the Sanctuary for a few days last year and decided to return the night before flying back home. As last year - our visit was GREAT! Our room wasn't ready so they gave us a $1.00 drink coupon in the bar. Since it was lunch, we went in and Ken was the bartender. He was so attentive.... More
