OK, so if you are expecting a luxury resort with everything new, then this is not your place. This is a special place that in a beautiful location, where the staff really cares about their guests and the grounds. After just one night, I felt I knew the staff personally.
We had a nice fire pit at night while some folks played music...won't find that in many places near Phoenix. The breakfast was sensational. But best of all, just relaxing in one of the chairs next to the river during sunset. Couldn't have been more relaxing and peaceful. Love the birds flying around.
The cottages are really nice. The Air conditioner worked great. I liked how there were no phones or TVs in the rooms. There was Internet if you absolutely needed it. Only thing I could think of to make it better would be small refrigerators in the room to keep water/drinks cold...with that said, the ice machine was easy to get to and was full.
The horse riding next door was great. Wish I could have stayed there longer. It was the last day of our long trip.
