The staff of this hotel are extremely nice, the room clean and the food in the rest. and saloon excellent. Only problem is the outdoor patio across from the pool is booked for private parties, especially on weekends, and they may continue their loud music until 1AM or possibly after since there is no noise ordinance in Rio Rico.

I was at this property 3-4 years ago. It hasn't changed. It is a bit out dated but the rooms are always clean. Everything in my room worked but a co-worker in another room had a sink that wouldn't drain and then realized at 4AM that her power was out. Staff immediately moved her to another room. Jesus and the... More

If your looking for a nice place to have good food and great margaritas, you must give Esplendor Resort a try! The views are amazing, can't beat them. I will recommend asking for Fabian the bartender, he's been every time I've gone for the past year and has never disappointed! He makes the best margaritas around. He makes me feel... More

Go, just go...it is lovely in Rio Rico....temps are much cooler than Phoenix and a nice weekend away is perfect here. Went shopping in Tubac....hung out at the pool at the resort, had good food and enjoyed the views. The staff is excellent at the hotel, they are all very friendly. The hotel is older but it is clean, really... More

This property is WAAYYY past it's prime! Desperately needs basic maintenance (weeds growing everywhere, heaving pavers on walkways, crumbling concrete steps, bird poop not cleaned up in a timely fashion, the sweep on our room entrance door was not properly installed so left a large crack under the door which acted as a freeway for numerous bugs coming in during...

Having to be at Nogales for a fairly large period of time (11 days), our family chose to stay in Esplendor in nearby Rio Rico, as the TA reviews were fairly decent, and we wanted something a bit better than the average Holiday Inn Express or Candlewood Suites in town. The photos made the rooms look charming and quaint. Oh... More

The grounds were dirty but beautiful views. Room was ok, out dated but for the price it's expected. There was some sort of pool birthday party going on and it made it very uncomfortable for my family to swim. Too many screaming kids running around the pool with out life guard. We tried to have breakfast in the restaurant, there... More

This was a horrible hotel. First, the grounds are dirty, bird crap all over the place, the wheel place needs a power washing. Secondly, kid pool parties at the pool made you feel you were crashing someone's party. The Kids running around screaming and yelling -- anything but peaceful. Third, the dinner was mediocre at best. What a waste of... More

Having stayed at the Esplendor several times, the staff makes you feel as though you are family when you stay with them. No hotel is perfect, and the Esplendor is no exception, but the overall ambiance of the place; the rooms, saloon, pool, restaurant, etc., and not to mention the awesome view, makes one forget about any negatives about staying...

Filthy dirty full of bird poop all over walkways. The carpets stunk. No elevators. Had drag luggage up 3 flights of stairs. Pool and Jacuzzi were often dirty. Tennis courts were always locked. Refrigerator didn't work. Would be a nice place if it was fixed up and remodeled. I definitely won't stay there again!
