Our family loves the time we spend at Shadow Mountain. Our children love the freedom of opening the condo door and playing volleyball, soccer or ping pong in the vast greenbelt area. We love that they can swim, play tennis and golf every day. The children and adult tennis clinics are superb, and Sharon at the Golf Club is a... More

Shadow Mountain Resort is a very pretty and cozy resort. We loved that you don't need a shuttle to get from one area to another and yet everything you could want is available.

We have stayed at this resort maybe 20 times. We are avid tennis players and we often take a large group of 30-55 people to Shadow Mountain twice per year. The resort has a huge pool, Jacuzzi, grass volleyball net and a ton of tennis courts, including a few "clay" courts. There is a small restaurant/café, and in season, a... More

We value our return guests and are glad you enjoyed your recent visit. Our tennis courts are buzzing with great players. And, the Desert Tennis Academy is the best for some serious, but fun play. Your patronage is huge for us and we do appreciate it over the years. We hope to see you back again soon. More

Were so glad you visited the resort when the desert is a bit quieter, for a change. Weather can be on the warm side, but it's such a great time to take advantage of the great specials in some of the best restaurants that you can walk to!
