We wanted to get away for a mix of weekend fun and "work-cation" and choose this property after reviewing the Marriott options. We really enjoyed staying here. The Staff were VERY friendly and helpful. We were given cards to access the JW Marriott pool nearby (very nice!). There is a "quiet" pool if you want to get away from the... More

We stayed at Canyon Villas for three days near the end of April. We belong to the Marriott Vacation Club and had to use some expiring points. After visiting friends in Chandler we had made reservations at the Canyon Villas to use the points. We checked in at 1:30 pm and our room was ready. We had made reservations initially... More

We LOVED our 3 night stay and it was a great way to end our trip with a toddler who did best falling asleep in his own room. We had a 1 bedroom, 1st floor room. In between the wading/splash park and the swimming pool. The area is easily walked from one end to the other and it was great... More

We had a wonderful trip to the JW Marriott last year and agreed to a return trip to the Canyon Villas if we sat through a 90 mn vacation club presentation (we upgraded on that original purchase to a 2 bedroom). To be certain we weren't let down we booked a night at the JW to kick off our trip.... More

Canyon Villas is a fine vacation spot in the Sonoran Desert of Phoenix. It's a beautiful, recently renovated resort with all kinds of amenities and activities for all ages. It has several nice swimming pools and a fine fitness and weight room. Also, it's located adjacent to the beautiful JW Marriott at Desert Ridge, which has several excellent restaurants and... More

My wife and I have stayed at this resort twice and both times we had an excellent experience. The resort is very well maintained and the rooms have fully equipped kitchens with everything you need except the food. The bedroom is large and the bathroom has both a tub and a huge shower situated in two adjoining rooms. There is... More

My husband and son were hesitant when I told them we would be spending the leisure part of our trip at this property, but within the first few hours they were asking when we would be coming back. The staff was very friendly (huge requirement for me), the unit was immaculate, property well kept up, pool areas were so nicely... More

We had a delightful week at Canyon Villas -- all 3 of our kids (ages 9, 11, and 13) pronounced this their favorite vacation, which means it beat out vacations in Hawaii, Aruba, and Colorado, among other places! We alternated pool days with a hummer tour of the Sonora Desert, a day in Sedona (thanks Pink Jeep Tours!), and finally... More

We just checked out today and I was so happy we came here. I really don't know who was nicer - the people we met staying here OR the folks that work here. It didn't matter who you ran into - a groundskeeper or a housekeeper, they were super friendly. They wanted to say hi to our kids, and that... More

Sometimes, you plan a vacation trying to squeeze every penny to within an inch of its' life. Other times, you scrounge up free flights, realize you can cook your own meals and throw down for the spendy accomodations. This was one of those times. There are (I think) 6 or 7 different villa buildings, each with a personality of its... More
