You will love this place! All new renovation. The people are fantastic, the amenities and surroundings are beautiful. Looks to be very kid friendly, not a Grandma YET! Location close to everything you could want.

Room Tip: Our room accessible from parking but patio opened to courtyard. Pathways throughout complex

We love the Sheraton Desert Oasis. The atmosphere here is so relaxed and the grounds are beautiful. The new renovations in the rooms are nice and comfortable. The staff is very professional and always friendly. The concierge desk is very helpful in guiding you to the best Scottsdale has to offer. We had a great week in Arizona and hopefully will be able to return.

Sheraton Desert Oasis is a great place to stay in North Scottsdale. For me... it was cheaper than getting a taxi. My one bedroom mini apartment was extremely spacious, clean and comfortable. Definitely way better than an ordinary hotel room! I wish I would have stayed longer. Desert Oasis is right next to TPC Scottsdale, a few miles from Desert Ridge and Westworld.

Room Tip: My mini apartment was on the side of the property and pretty quiet.

We love the Sheraton Desert Oasis and exchange here through RCI every time we visit Scottsdale.
The renovations are excellent and as always the grounds are immaculate. Both pools are great whether you like it quiet or more activity you have the choice.
Love the location too.
Staff very friendly.
Hope to return again next year.

So thankful my friend had recommended this property. We booked a package through our airline. The renovations were fantastic. Room was very spacious and very quiet. We actually paid an additional $30.00 per night to upgrade to a premium villa which was well worth it for the extra room when travelling with two teenagers. We also had a cot so both could have their own beds. The separate bedroom was an added plus and the bed was heavenly. We enjoyed having a kitchenette and liked that there was BBQ's. The grounds and pool area were very well kept...even the day after the haboob blew in! Staff were friendly. Anna was fantastic when we checked in. Everyone seemed to enjoy all the pool side activities. Plenty of other daily activities for younger kids. Splash Grill, poolside, had good food. I was pleasantly surprised when we received several $5.00 vouchers to enjoy at the pool. I believe this was a thank you for not having housekeeping come everyday. Busy for the Fourth of July, but never did seem overly crowded at the pool. Overall fantastic experience! This may have been our first trip to Scottsdale, but I have a feeling it won't be our last. Thank you SDO.

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor by the main pool and fitness centre, room 2103. Overlooked the "...

Good to hear that you were able to utilize the "make a green choice" vouchers; they are absolutely a win-win for everyone - good for our guests as well as the environment.

We hope it won't be too long until your next visit to the "Valley of the Sun".

We stayed at this resort from June 2-8 and we had a lovely time. We had two unit for our family of four. The larger unit had fully equipped kitchen and the smaller unit had a basic kitchen. We had a unit right next to the pool and the gym which worked out perfectly for us.
This resort is beautiful and the staff are very friendly and helpful. There are two pools, one is considered a quiet pool, and the other is where the entertainment is. There is a waterfall, hot tub, and a snack bar. On Saturday nights, they have a movie at the pool which the kids absolutely adored. I used the gym daily, and while they don't have many machines, I never had a problem getting a treadmill or an elliptical trainer. My favourite part of the gym was the mini fridge with cold towels--so nice after a workout!
Oh and I have to mention the bed--this was one of the most comfortable sleeps I have ever had in a hotel!
The staff were great--responded quickly to all our needs and with a smile.
Everything is fairly close by--Walmart, grocery stores, malls, and of course, golf courses. I took the kids to Butterfly Wonderland which they loved.
We enjoyed our stay here so much, that we just booked today for another visit back in early August. We can't wait!

Wow! What a wonderful review to read! We were excited to learn what a great time you and your family had at our property!
The dive in movie has proven to be a great hit with our young (and young at heart) guests, and we are happy that we can be a part of creating lasting memories!
We all know how essential a good night's rest is and like you said, our Sheraton Sweet Sleeper bed definitely does the trick! Should you ever be interested, the bed is actually available for purchase on our website.

Looking forward to seeing you in August!

My wife and I spent a week at the Sheraton Desert Oasis the last week of May, 2014. This was our third vacation at this property, and for good reason. First, let me say that this property is a timeshare property and is part of the Starwood chain; however it is a resort in every sense of the word. The grounds are expansive and very well kept. The rooms (we stayed in a 1 bedroom deluxe villa) are well decorated, updated and very clean. The resort has just about all the amenities one could ask for and a staff second to none. The staff is worth mentioning because everyone I personally encountered was overly friendly, and after one day I and most of the staff were on a first name basis. There are scheduled daily activities for just about everyone, a large pool and an oversized outdoor jacuzzi. There are also several barbeque grills strategically placed all over the grounds. I mentioned that this is a timeshare, but this resort can be booked directly with Sheraton without any timeshare connection whatsoever (as I did). We couldn't ask for a better place to spend a week at, and the added comfort of not having to stay in one (1) room of a hotel as opposed to staying in a 1 bedroom apartment for virtually the same cost or lower, is a huge benefit. We will continue to return here whenever we can.

Room Tip: I would recommend not staying on the top (3rd) floor. Although there are elevators, there is no over...

Dear Roseyblatt

We loved hearing how our property has become somewhat of a "home away from home" for you and your family.
We were especially thrilled to read the great feedback in regards to our staff as we all strive daily to make every guest feel special and cared for during their stay.
Hopefully, you were able to partake in some of the plentiful activities our FUN team has to offer on a daily basis. You are right - they do have something for every age!

We look forward to welcoming you back a fourth time very soon!
