“Fantastic waterpark for the kids...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We stayed 2 nights here. The waterpark was great. Lazy river, slides and kiddie water area kept the kids busy. Plenty of shaded areas. Golf course was beautiful. Our room was very clean. Would recommend staying here.

We just returned home from a weekend at the resort. My husband won a 2 night stay at a golf outing so this was a "free" weekend for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our staycation weekend. We stayed in mountainside suites room 131 and I must say the room was impeccably clean. Everything in it was just immaculate. The only thing I was different was that the bathroom was a little bit bigger. Other that that, the room was great. We had a little bit of a walk to get to the water park but the staff offered shuttle service if we wanted it. Food in the resort was very good but aa with most resorts...a bit pricey. For example, we ate a late lunch on Saturday ....had 3 burgers/fries, chicken sandwich/fries and 4 soft drinks and our bill, with tip, was $85. The food Waa very good but expensive.
Best part by far...the water park. Wave pool, play pool, lazy river and 3 slides. Water was a perfect temperature for a hot summer day. Spent many hours relaxing in the river. Saturday night was spent in the water park late watching a movie on the big screen in the wave pool. It was a great weekend and we will definitely return!

Great family resort. We selected this resort because it had a water park and golf course, and good reviews. We brought our 2 teenagers (17 & 19), who also had a great time. I was greeted by Brandon when I checked in, who was very polite and efficient. He asked if we wanted to be closer to the water park, and I said no, we preferred to walk and have a quieter room. He set us up with one of the Mountainside units and it was perfect. 1st fairway off the balcony, and 2nd fairway out the front and nice an quiet, just like I asked. Room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. All the staff from the golf shop to the water park were kind and courteous. Great location only a few minutes from the airport. Will be coming here again!

We stayed here Monday thru Friday. The grounds were well kept and clean. We stayed in the Sedona area. We had the one king room and the kids slept on the pull out sofa. The kids would have preferred a bed but they didn't complain about their back hurting. I would check into getting 2 queens next time. The room was a little out dated but it was clean.
The staff was great, everyone was very helpful. When you check in they will help you to find your room.
The water park was fun. The food at the pool was expensive. We got the kids shakes they were $6.50 each but you at a resort so you pay the price or load up in the car to go get ice cream somewhere else. They also have pools spread out thru the resort. At the water park and at the pools they have towels for you to use. At the water park they will give you ice water for free.
We had breakfast at their market in the lobby. The muffins are $3.50 and they had a variety to choose from. They also had cereal and milk.
This felt like a family resort not like a super high class resort. We would happily stay here again. One thing that sucks is $40 resort fee, then they tax you $5 for the resort fee so it's really $44.95 resort fee.

Beautiful resort! Stayed in room 203 in the Sedona Suites perfect view of the giant fountain. Very clean rooms, comfortable
beds. Expensive but definitely worth the stay. The waterpark was great, especially the two main water slides.

Excellent experience. I would do it over and over again!!! The water park is very clean and the pool attendants are very accommodating. Rooms are spacious and clean. Can't wait to go back. The golf course it very affordable and beautiful. The on location restaurant is slightly expensive but why not enjoy the resort and splurge. Location is easy to get in and out and very close to malls, food and stores.

Overall, very beautiful grounds. We had a room in mountainside that had a separate living room to bedroom. Our room offered two queen sized beds. Beds were very comfortable, pillows were small but doable. Offers coffee in room and a wet bar. We had a balcony overlooking the first tee. Food was ok, but too expensive. We were not allowed to bring our own food into water park. They even checked our bags!
The weekend was very busy and overcrowded. They seem to cater to the weekend crowds because they had lots to offer like movies and BBQ by the pool. During the week, nothing going on. Easier to find a place to sit during the week.
Aunt Chilada's Mexican restaurant, just a short walk from hotel was a big disappointment. Very expensive for mexican food. We ate on the patio, once food was served the birds showed up - very annoying!
We never saw any bell staff. Concierge was helpful in suggesting places to see, things to do. We would go again, but rent a car so we could eat elsewhere.

Room Tip: if you want the waterpark, I suggest staying during the week when not too many people are there. Ca...
