During the hot summer months here in Phoenix my family and I always like to take a break (without the hassle of travelling) at one of the local resorts and this year we decided to try the Carefree Resort & Villas where we booked one of the delux villas.
The experience we had was incredible and more than we had expected. The pictures on line don't do it enough justice. The spacious villa was amazing, very comfortable and had everything you needed . Overall the resort property is great and very well taken care of. They have great amenities and they had a lot of things going on at the resort the whole weekend from dive in movies and cowboy shows to late night smores, plus they are able to accommodate any request from a round of golf to a hot air balloon ride. It was also just as easy to relax and do nothing.
I would have liked to have seen a bigger pool area or some kind of water area aimed at children/families, but there is still a nice pool area with an additional pool in the villa areas.
The food was hot and the drinks were cold and we enjoyed riding around on our own golf cart but what left the greatest impression on me was the level and quality of service from all of the employees at the resort. Check in and out was simple, friendly and efficient and throughout our stay all the employees seemed to be happy to be working there and this showed. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone that we came into contact with had a smile on their face and even passing an employee on property they all would smile and say hello.
I am a big believer in people being your greatest asset and I know there are a lot of choices for luxury resorts and places to stay here in Arizona but the Carefree Resort & Villas and it's staff stand out as one of my top choices and a resort I will be recommending to others. Thank you for such a great visit and I look forward to staying with you again.
