I'll start by saying, the staff and management are friendly and helpful. The property is beautiful and is adjacent to Oak Creek. Get a glass of wine and sit in a swing next to the creek. The Saltrock restaurant is a must, good food, great staff and a view like no other. We plan on returning in the spring.

We live in Phoenix area (just moved here) and our 10 year old granddaughter was visiting from WA and we wanted to take her to the Grand Canyon and I always wanted to stay in Sedona, so I researched like a mad woman trying to find the "IT" spot for us to cool off (Sedona at least 10-15 degree's cooler...

Amara Resort Amara resort isn’t quite what you’d expect from the photos. Unlike a lot of Sedona properties, it’s not surrounded by the beautiful landscapes but rather, tucked into a small canyon directly off the main shopping drag down a steep hill. Tucked away, all views are out the back and they are spectacular with several of the classic Red... More

My family had an extended stay here on our last visit to Sedona. We were all very pleased with the room, staff and proximity to town. But the real enchanting part was the lovely view from poolside to the awesome red rocks flanking the creek. Every morning and evening we would swim and enjoy the wonderful ambience and true beauty...

We paid a premium price for a creek-side suite, but the "creek" is not much to look at. The only real "views" from the hotel are located around the beautiful hotel pool (we were taking bets on how many iphones get dropped in the pool every day and decided the over/under line would be 2.5). The hike up to town... More

My boyfriend and I came for a relaxing get away! We loved the view! And loved the pool! But when we went to get our couples massage we were told that "20% tip is requested but not required " you never tell your client how much to tip... That made us want to tip less! We know etiquette is 20%... More

We loved this hotel, as soon as we arrived our bags were unloaded and our car parked. The valet lads were great. They also dropped us up to a mile away and picked us up for free in the evenings when we went out. The rooms are very new modern and clean. The pool and hot tub have a lovely... More

Stayed here for a wedding. We got a creek side room which turned out to be nothing special except the very high price. The restaurant was just average and not really worth the resort fee's either. For the prices you pay I had expected much better

My wife and I stayed at the Amara Resort and Spa from 08/17/14-08/19/14 in a standard king room with a $25 per day resort credit. The resort is located in the heart of downtown Sedona, an excellent location. As soon as you pull up and meet the valets you will notice the excellent service at Amara. I actually saw one... More

This property has a great location right in the centre of Sedona, a perfect base to explore the area. The rooms and public spaces were comfortable and modern. There is free wifi if you are a member of the rewards programme as well as a 10usd voucher to be used for the bar or minibar. Valet parking is included in... More
