“Christmas at the Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Spent the Christmas holidays (2012) at the Inn. It was the best hotel - holiday experience yet. Loved the fire pits in the evening under the stars! Room was great! Loved the decor ... and the grounds. The restaurants on site were excellent as well. Will definitely return ... soon.

my company recently held a very successful sales meeting at this hotel. Everything went flawlessly. The food was excellent and the service was fantastic. We had guests from all across the US, Canada and Mexico. all were very impressed by the event. The grounds were beautiful as well. I will want to stay again with my family.

Very nice, large resort; beautifully maintained. Unique check-in procedure. Good service and very clean. We had a great local promotional rate. If you like big well manicured resorts this one is for you.

This is a beautiful property to be sure but it is very large, somewhat expensive and probably not for everybody. The pool areas, golf, outdoor patios and grounds are to die for. The food is excellent but quite expensive. I tend to prefer slightly smaller properties but this place really does have everything you want in a top notch desert resort.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

I have been putting this review off for a couple of months because I was not quite sure how to express my dissatisfaction with a property that I once considered a top of the line resort. While I am sure that others, even during my stay, had a great experience I was less than impressed. The front desk staff was either new or poorly trained and unsure of operational procedures. Our casita was, at one time, awesome - today...not so much. Others have commented on the need for upgrades and I agree. Attention to detail was lacking everywhere except for the poolside service. These servers were quick and efficient. The service at Rita's was slow and, well just not at the level you would expect for a resort property. I heard complaints from other guests as well. An incident with a server that appeared "under the influence" during dinner with invited guests from the area left us bewildered. This was reported the next morning to the front desk and we were assured that the manager would wish to speak with us - never called. Just one more detail not dealt followed up with. As a Marriott Rewards member I was saddened to see the decline in this resort. I attend a conference there annually but will stay at another resort next year.

The location is great and the staff is very friendly. The place looks a little worn and needs some updating but it is very clean. The landscaping is beautiful and the restaurant Rita was good. The spa area is nice but they were updating the women's area so I was not able to use the sauna or whirlpool. I would go back because of the friendly staff and privacy of the casitas.

Stayed December 2012

Wow, what an experence. We went for New Years get away and loved it. (Already booked to go back next year) Staff, people, service and location is great. No need to leave. Spa is fabulous. And for the level of services the cost was unexpectedly great. This could be the start of yearly adventure.
