My wife and I had a couple of days in Mesa and wanted to do something different and chose SLR by chance and it was awesome! This is not your cookie cutter resort. The staff was incredibly friendly and took the time to shake hands, learn our names and make our stay very pleasant. We felt like we had gone back in time to the 50's and half expected to see Lucy and Ricky show up. Didn't miss TV at all. Breakfast was sensational. Kayaking the Salt River was so much fun. Cabins were cool and comfortable and we liked the old time feel. Our bathroom was kind of small and the floor had a tilt to it, but I think that added to the time warp feeling. Only drawback was the lack of mini fridge to keep our water cold. Will definitely stay here again.
