We are members of Raintree Resorts which owns this property. Our trip was primarily to attend the Rock, Gem and Mineral shows in Tucson (yes it's over 100 mile drive!), but we also wanted to see the Grand Canyon and enjoy the Phoenix area. Our unit was in the bldg closest to check in, main level, no garage - but... More

I stayed at this resort in early November, and we loved the spacious unit, closed in garage, and the set up was fabulous; gave us a true 'AZ desert' feeling! It was complete with a visit in our living room from a scorpion (there was an unusual drop in temp that made the wildlife a bit berserk those few days)!... More

I hope Desert Arroyo gets it's own spot with a connection to the old one. It's under new management and is mostly renovated. Looks like this happened sometime in late 2010. The rooms look like they have new carpets and some new furniture. We had a 1,100 square feet, 2 bedroom condo with 2 full baths, full kitchen, washer and... More

I didn't actually stay there, but tried to book there for a trip that I am making in November. It's your call about the place, but be aware of their onerous "cancellation policies" before you do anything. They will charge you $67.19 simply for the process of reserving a room regardless of how long you cancel. They call this a... More

The stay was not terrible, but my expectations exceeded the reality of the hotel. We had a free stay at a five-star hotel due to a refund from a different trip, and so I assumed the room we'd have would be amazing. Well, the first room we had was okay. The master bathroom was awesome! But the rest of the... More

We just returned from Canyonview and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo. It was an RCI trade and the accommodations were fantastic - granite counter tops, large ceramic shower, large whirlpool tub, and washer/dryer.. We were on the second floor and had a nice deck overlooking the pool area. The property is quiet and tucked... More

Our family traveled to Phoenix to relax and take in a few spring training baseball games. We booked a two bedroom two bath at the resort and just loved it. The resort was centrally located to the baseball parks we visited and near a great mall. We stayed for 3 nights and wished we'd booked longer as we didn't want... More

OK, so I just got back from AZ after staying at this hotel. After reading reviews and not being able to find a website for the life of me, I was worried. Thankfully when we arrived to our 3 bedroom 2 bath condo I was relieved. OK, so this wasn't what I would normally call a "resort" and the decor... More

We actually bought into this resort as our home base and were thoroughly disappointed. We bought in 2006 while they were renovating....the new space was to be glorious with a waterfall and huge pool. We booked two years later and found that nothing had been done since our first visit, no waterfall, no huge pool. In fact our maintenance fees... More

This is my second stay, and it was just as great as the first. I stayed from June 13 until June 18, 2008. We stayed in a 2 bedroom this time as opposed to the 1 bedroom we stayed in last time. It was very quite, we were on the bottom floor, and only heard noise maybe one time from... More
