As with several of other reviewers, I have never written a review before, but felt compelled to do so to prevent others from making a mistake by staying here. I booked online through their website, for 1 adult and 2 children. It gave me the option of a standard room. Upon check in, there was only one bed in the... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience. It is unfortunate that we were unable to satisfy your needs, after our discussions and the accommodations made on your behalf. As stated, our reservation system does not account for unavailable rooms in our inventory, thus any inquiry to available different room types was nothing more than the situation at... More

We came down with several other families for a 5-night stay, and we have never been so disappointed in a hotel at this price range. As other reviewers have mentioned, the pull-out sofa bed was unsleepable, and despite the "resort" manager's response below, our children were unable to sleep in it. When a website/reservation promises accommodations for 4 people, we... More

We apologize that your stay was less than perfect, and know that my staff works hard to make every guest's needs met. I will personally review your concerns with the staff. We've recently adjusted our website's description to better define the sleeping accommodations. Many families find additional comfort by adding a second bedroom to their reservation, which is always offered... More

These were clearly apartments that were then turned into hotels. The show door opens and the shower head faces you so there is no way to actually turn on the shower without getting sprayed with cold water. One of the lamps didn't work in our room and they were very stingy on the towels. They didn't give us any hand... More

Beautiful rooms, large, nicely designed with fireplace and .it is close to spring training i in Scottsdale. Many tennis courts on the grounds and exercise classes offered but Wish there were more fitness classes available in the morning. Couldn't find a class offered on Thursday morning . Breakfast was very good .

I apologize for your clearly unfortunate experience, and am truly surprised by your comments. Our convertible couches are typically utilized by children, and not included as bedding for our published "adult" accommodations. That said I do recall we provided some additional quilts to adjust the comfort for your guests. Guest service is a vital component of our many guests' enjoyable... More

There are lots of nicer places you could stay for the same price. This place is way outdated, furniture is old and collapsing , patio furniture broke when sitting on it from rot. Very bare minimum decorations. If people are staying next to you you can hear everything. You have small sink but no utensils plates, bowls why even had... More

I apologize that your experience was not what you were expecting. Most guests find our accommodations to be clean, well maintained, and "moderately" decorated, so as not to distract one from enjoying the surroundings. Presuming from the description of the room type chosen (unlike our spacious villas) our standard guest rooms and suites do not include a kitchen, thus a... More

First of all I didn't personally pick this resort- I was with a couple of coworkers & we were scheduled in Phoenix for convention.

I am very appreciative about your feedback regarding our spa. After learning of your less than excellent experience, I did welcome you and your friend to a complimentary spa service. When you came into the spa the next day, you informed us you wouldn't have time for the services as you had booked a horseback riding excursion. As a result... More

Lobby looks like your checking into dentist's office, staff unfriendly and not at all concerned about issues. Rooms are small, dingy and not particularly clean, when my wife turned down the bed there was a bug crawling around inside the sheets.

It is the busy season in Scottdale and this place was empty. That in and of itself is not all bad, but you do start to understand why as you spend time here.

Nice boutique resort close in Scottsdale location. Loved having a full kitchen and separate bedroom. Had a spa treatment and a meal in the restaurant: both top quality but affordable. Personable staff and nice General Manager. Relaxing weekend: exceeded expectations!
