My husband & I needed a week of relaxation and although we knew the weather would be very hot in July, we chose to go to the Canyon Suites from July 5th- 11th. The weather WAS hot but the Canyon Suites was the best place we could have chosen. It started with our arrival when Natalia welcomed us & took us to our room - a gorgeous suite overlooking the golf course and Camelback Mountain.
For the next few days, we lounged around the pool with Marcel & Ben taking such great care of us. It was super hot out there with couple of days 110+ and they made sure we had lots of ice & cold drinks as well as bringing cold facecloths to help cool down. There were only a few people around the pool so they had flexibility to move some umbrellas around so we could be in the pool and get protection from the sun - sweet!!
The restaurants were also great, and our first night at J&G Steakhouse, they brought us desserts for our anniversary & my husband's birthday. We had told Natalia we were celebrating both occasions & she obviously passed the information on to the restaurant - very nice touch.
We did take a tour up to Sedona one day and although a bit cooler, it was still in the 90s. The highlight of our day was our 2-hour Pink Jeep Broken Arrow tour. PJ our guide was so much fun & the views of Sedona were breathtaking!!
Having travelled to several caribbean islands, to different parts of Mexico, and to Maui, this was our first vacation where we not at a beach, but it wasn't an issue and we will definitely go back to the Canyon Suites (maybe not in July). So thank you Natalia, Alex, Marcel, Ben & all the staff at the Suites as well as the many staff members we interacted with at The Phoenician. It was an amazing vacation & we will be back!!
