“Great timeshare, but don't sign up for the "presentation!"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

We'll start with the pros: the property is beautiful, the unit we stayed in (bldg.19) was comfortable, clean, and modern, the location is fantastic, and the staff is very friendly.
With that being said, here are the cons:
1)the water coming out of the shower head is slightly painful (like little pins hitting your skin) and there isn't a way to adjust this 2) while the pools are fantastic, getting to them is a HIKE...I counted 47 stairs to climb to get to the pool closest to our unit, 3) there shouldn't be a charge for WiFi ($30 for the week per device!!!), and most importantly 4) do not sign up for the "90 minute presentation!" the 90 minutes was a 3 HOUR sales pitch (so not worth the $100!)
I would still recommend staying here, just know the cons ahead of time and avoid the presentation.

Room Tip: Ask how close you will be to a pool.

Thank you for your review and your kind words, especially referring to our fantastic team who work everyday towards ensuring that our guests have a lovely time. We are sorry for some maintenance issues you appear to have encountered and also we regret to read about your disappointment regarding the sales presentation. As we are primarily a timeshare resort, solicitation of a presentation may constitute a part of the experience, however in most cases attendance to a meeting is not necessary and we are sorry if you were in any way inconvenienced. We hope to have another opportunity to host you again in the future.

We stayed here twice now and really enjoyed it. Last year we traded for a studio which was great and this year we traded for a two bedroom lockout. We stayed in the same area 504. The sun was lower in October so our room was very dark. I would recommend staying higher up in the fall. The rooms were clean and had all the amenities that you would need. Very close to the grocery store Weber's IGA and the outlet mall.

Room Tip: Stay on the second floor less noise

My two sisters and I stayed the week of September 15 as a trade through Interval. We shared a studio (one sister was only there for three nights). The location was perfect - actually better than Uptown Sedona. We had a second floor room with a nice view of the rocks from the balcony. Very convenient to hiking and all that the area has to offer. Took a day trip to the Grand Canyon and also Jerome and Flagstaff.

Yes, we got the "do you want to take a tour" question when checking in but politely said we were not interested and that was it. Rosemay was fantastic! The restaurants she recommended were spot-on. Try Miley's (don't let the location turn you off) up the road and Rincon (in the mexican village wohose name I cannot spell). Picazzo's was also good. Prices vary but good values everywhere.

The mid-week cleaning left a bit to be desired....As far as interner goes I didn't go on vacation to be on-line. We used the computers in the reception area when we didn't want to use our data plan. You pay for internet at all but the budget hotels so why not ecpect to pay here. All in all, we felt this was a very good value and would stay there again.

Room Tip: if in a studio take a second floor unit

Really, you gotta be a grump not to get happy at this place. Its not perfect, but the red-rock world that engulfs the tranquil views around this resort are pretty close. Accommodations are tasteful and comfortable. Its not top of the line, but close enough and yet not snooty or budget busting. Downside is that having to pay for Wi-Fi is annoying as is hard sell to take the time share tour.

Two bedroom units (at least the one they gave my wife and our friends) are not really two-bedroom units...but convertibles. One bedroom is better that the second, causing couples an awkward moment of choice.

And if you're playing the adjoining golf course, buyer beware. SLOW PLAY with useless rangers. On one par 3, FOUR GROUPS were stacked up. If you tee off at one o'clock or after chances are you'll play the backside in the shade and 18 in the dark.

Room Tip: Ask about 2-bedroom units.

Booked this without site unseen... was part of our time share book. Grounds are nice and clean, rooms are clean. We had the view of the golf course... I guess it would have been nice, but all we got to view was the white netting - perhaps black netting so we could have seen through? The extra amenities in the room you don't bring with you like coffee, sugar, soap, laundry detergent etc were supplied, but don't expect the small amount supplied will be enough past one day, one load or one load of dishes! And they didn't refill on the cleaning day. Other than that, beds are comfortable, it's quiet. Internet and cable tv would have also been a plus - don't expect that either. You can pay $30 for the week for internet for only ONE device. Is it so hard to offer that free? The entire city of San Francisco is FREE! Staff was really friendly too.

Room Tip: If you want a golf course view - ask if there is a protective net obstructing your view.

Traded in my 2 bedroom from a studio (oversize hotel room). The room was very nice, the balcony was good to set on while drinking morning coffee. We were at the top of a hill, so we had a good view of some hills, to me preferable to overlooking the golf course. Although a queen bed, it was comfortable, great shower. The biggest disappointment was the couch. Very uncomfortable, no place to set and enjoy the tv or read. The disadvantage of the studio is my wife sleeps late, I get up early. No place for me to read, so went down to the reception area. Best coffee anywhere.
I enjoyed my stay, The location turned out to be better than staying in Sedona. We traveled to Cottonwood, Clarksburg, Jerome. Better prices and a lot of interesting places in old town Cottonwood. The Verne canyon train trip is relaxing and enjoyable. Felt that there was the usual pressure to attend a timeshare discussion, with the usual incentives. The Wi-Fi is separate from the resort and cost $30 for the week (free use of the computers in the welcome center)

Room Tip: Some have views of the rocks, not many. Others are closer to the pool and hot tub. May not have mu...

Thank you for your review. We always strive to deliver exceptional hospitality and offer good quality accommodation to each of our guests who stay with us, and it is very concerning to us that we did not fully meet these expectations. We regret to learn that you found our sofa’s uncomfortable and were not pleased with floor plan of your unit. We would like to assure you that should our reception team be contacted with regards to this, they would do their best to rectify this issue. As your review states, a two bedroom unit was traded for a studio. The studios are our smallest accommodations, and generally are meant for 2 guests or less. We provide the floor plan of this unit type on our website for easy planning beforehand. Nevertheless, we of course apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced due to this. We are pleased to read, however, that otherwise you had a pleasant stay and we do hope to see you coming back with another visit in the future!

My husband and I stayed at the resort for 3 nights. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the resort was! Staff was helpful, never pressured us to go on the "tour", pool was small but nice, and the restaurant at the golf club house was great! We would definitely stay at this resort in the future and would recommend friends and family to stay here! Thanks sedona ridge resort!
