“Enjoyed our stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2011

We stayed here the last two weeks in September. We stayed in a one bedroomed unit, which was situated close to the pool area (just go out the back gate, and you were there). Everywhere on the resort was spotless, and all the staff that we came into contact with were lovely and very helpful. They do not have a restaurant, cafe or bar on site which is fine as you are close enough to walk to these, or if you want to go into the town it is only a short drive. We found that where it is situated was perfect for heading off each day for trails etc., as it is just off the highway, but you do not get any noise of an evening. We did a helicopter trip from the airport. It was 35mins and $165 each, but OMG it was definately worth it. They take you through all the beautiful red rock formations, and you get up close enough to see the Indian pueblos. Fantastic trip would definately reccommend it. Another trip that is well worth going on is the Verde Valley Railroad. The views are beautiful and we got to see 5 bald eagles in total. Also the train was beautiful as a reasonable price too. If you get a chance drive up to Jerome, you can see it nestled on the rock. This was worth the drive ( not far only about 40 mins if that) and the vista from there is fabulous too. All of these are easy to arrange yourselves and easy to get too, as is The Grand Canyon, which obviously is a MUST see.

It is a shame the units do not have washer/dryers, but to be honest the cost of doing your laundry on site (by the pool) is not too bad at all if you wish to do some there. We won't be going back, but that is only because it was a very long trip for us from the U.K, and there are so many places we yet want to see, and we managed to see and do what we went there for, and took away some fantastic memories.

Stayed in a 1 1/2 bed loft unit cllose to the pool. Each unit has a private outdoor patio. Pool, units, and resort were very clean. Staff was friendly and accomodating. Resort is quiet but they do have some planned activities. No restaurant on-site but the town is full of great places to eat. Perfect week of traveling and relaxing at day's end here. Kitchen was stocked well. Has laundry facility that was very inexpensive. Stereo system with beautiful sound, very nicely decorated, grounds are beautiful. weather is amazing this time of year. Hot but dry with nice cool weather at night. So many things to do within 1-2 hours of this location. Cafe Jose's is a great breakfast place right on the main road. Javelina Cantina is the best Mexican food by far and the service was great. Oak Creek Brewery had delicious food and the best prickly pear margarita's. Those are a MUST TRY. Go to the airport just before sundown and you will catch amazing view of the mountains and sunset.. Place to visit: Prescott, Verde Canyon Railroad, Blazing M Ranch, a little shop called Kachina's in Sedona, Oak Creek scenic drive, and of course, Grand Canyon National Park. We drove to Vegas after and followed Rt 66. That was fantastic. Also drove through the Mohave Desert and visited Hoover Dam. Villas of Sedona is a great location for seeing Arizona sights. Comfortable beds too. Definitely want to go back to this resort again. Love it.

We had a very pleasant stay here. We had a corner 2 bedroom suite, with a king size bed and attached bath on the first floor and a queen size bed and attached bath on the second. The living area was well-furnished with TV, DVD player, CD player, gas fireplace and the fully furnished kitchen allowed us to cook meals in comfort. convenient location off of highway 89, but not at all noisy. Indoor and outdoor pool, game room, fitness center and even a putting green. Perfect way to visit Sedona.

Room Tip: Ask for 2 bedroom corner unit

Just returned from the Villas with my extended family(total of 6 of us) We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with loft. 1st floor bedroom had 2 single beds and to much furniture. Would have been better with a queen bed and loose some of the furniture. Couch on the main level pulled out into a bed but we did not use it. Loft area upstairs had a murphy bed which was used. Main Bedroom upstairs was HUGE with a King Size bed and had plently of extra room so our teenager bunked on the floor with a sleeping bag we had brought. Unit was a bit old decor mixed with new. Front Door when closed had poor sealing around it as we could feel the cold air come in. Also the huge picture window let in alot of cold air so we just keep the blind closed to try to help that. Other then that we enjoyed our visit. What would have made it perfect is if there was a washer & dryer in the unit for us to use

Stayed in a two bedroom w/ loft. First floor bedroom is connected to bathroom with a full size bed. Only thing 'missing' was a tv. Second floor bedroom is connected to bathroom with a king size bed. Only thing 'missing' was a larger tv. Loft sleeping area had full size murphy bed and access to upstairs bathroom. Living room had sleeper sofa. Clubhouse has Wii for kids to play. Weekly entertainment - Indian flute playing, story telling - and lots of crafts classes for the kids. Shoppe is not much at all. Laundry facility inexpensive and clean. Concierge was VERY helpful in rescheduling a cancelled tour to the Grand Canyon. Check-in and out were a breeze. Only thing didn't understand was the requirement to wash all dishes and put them back in the cupboards before we left or a charge may apply. SIDE NOTE: The tour company the resort uses to book their tours - Native American Journeys was excellent. Our tour guide (Joe) was knowledgable, flexible and we felt we not only saw but learned. AVOID TOURS BOOKED THROUGH GRAND CANYON TOURS.COM OR THE OLD WEST JEEP TOURS. Old West cancelled our tour - halfway to the grand canyon, we literally turned around and came back - because I requested a partial discount on our tour. The touted 'luxury mini-coach' was a rickety old van and our 'tour guide' was so difficult to hear over the noise made by the vibrating van, we couldn't hear what little information he was trying to tell us. Owner of Old West Jeep Tours basically screamed at me through the phone because I 'dared' to ask for what I paid for. The tour booked through the resort was less expensive, we were picked up at the guest lobby, the guide was knowledgable beyond belief - this was obviously a passion of his ... we were fortunate that the original tour was cancelled and that we hooked up with Native American Journeys.

What a fabulous resort. From the moment we checked in until we left we were pleased and comfortable!
We had a 2 bedroom (unit 10). I was a little worried that our room would be outdated but that was not the case at all. The landscaping and guest services were amazing. As soon as we checked in, we were directed to the concierge desk to the left. The two ladies were great. They told us of the events going on that week and gave us suggestions for places to eat and tour companies. They were not pushy at all and really friendly. There were 2 computers you could use. Both had a 30 minute time limit, but I never had to wait and there was never anyone else waiting when I was done. There were also printers available if you need to print boarding passes. We used the hot tub one night after a long day of walking. It was fabulous. The previous reviewer mentioned the other property, Sedona Springs. You can use all the facilities at that property too, including the hot tubs. I think they had 3.
The location is perfect. There are 3 places to buy groceries across the street. Restaurants were everywhere but most of them closed VERY early. We are late eaters and had to do some searching the last few nights to find a good place. I highly recommend Oaxaca- very good with a nice view and not too overpriced. The only place we didn’t like was the Olde Sedona Bar and Grill. The food was boring and way overpriced for what you get. That review is for another place. The cute ‘downtown’ area was dead after 6 pm. One server told us that the winter hours start this week (mid-November) and most places will be closed by 6 pm.
Speaking of the downtown shopping area: If you don't want to be hassled by the time share guys then AVOID the "store" where you can look at a Monkey and the Free Museum! Both places are owned by time share companies and once you go inside they are ridiculous
We will definitely return to the Villas of Sedona, but next time with the kids. What a great place for families! They had daily activities in the Activities Center right in the middle of the property for all ages. Overall, we could not have been happier with this property.

My friend and I stayed at the Villas of Sedona for a week as an exchange via RCI, it was a 1-bedroom loft type and it was surprisingly wonderful esp. based on the reviews that I've read on here. Truthfully, the pictures on the website don't make the place justice, it looks better in person. It's a complex of 2 resorts, the other is the Sedona Springs and really from what the latter look like, we got the best deal.
The villas of Sedona have been recently renovated, the new tiles were evident in the entryway, the kitchen and the bathrooms; new light fixtures and faucets in the kitchen and bathrooms definitely stood out. The kitchen was fully loaded with appliances and utensils one could have ever wanted, which was more than enough for us because we only had to prepare breakfast in the mornings. The loft area which turns into the 2nd bedroom with its own door is comfortable with a murphy bed with storage on one side and a walking closet, furthermore it has a small balcony although facing the inner yard I found was very nice. The half-bath is downstairs and the full bathroom is upstairs with a nice-size shower, however there is no bathtub; they were fully stocked with lots of towels 2 people would need all week, there is no mid-week cleaning.
The jacuzzi by the outside pool was great, I used it a few nights before going to bed to relax those back muscles. By November, the outside pool is no longer heated but remember there is an indoor pool available for use. Although there are no red rock views, we didn't feel that we missed anything for we were by them all day along with the outside activities.
I found the staff was very helpful esp. the concierge recommending the best places to see and eat around and outside of sedona. On sunday and monday nights, there are RCI representatives advertising dinner meetings to teach you the new innovative ways to exchange, it was absolutely useless and uninformative and poorly constructed, the dinners were from KFC, I had to laugh! Avoid them, they are time-wasting.
A great feature of the resort is its location, it's right in the center of town among all the shops, spas and restaurants along route 89-A. We enjoyed looking/shopping at the shops and galleries at the Tlaquepaque arts and crafts village; if you're interested in serious turquoise jewelry, the Hozho is the place to go. Places we ate at were: Kens' Creekside with music entertainment every night, the peach cobbler was a delight; Javalina Cantina for the best mexican food, you have to give the sea scallops dish a try; Dahl & Di Luca made the grand finale for the best italian food in the region.
For outdoor suff: Great place to watch the sunset is at the top of Airport road. My friend took a hot air balloon ride gliding over the red rocks of Sedona and according to her it was the most amazing thing she's ever experienced, gotta do it next time. We did a 2-hr jeep ride through the canyon, very scenic with moderate ruggedness, our driver/guide was excellent. Visiting the small town of Jerome is a must, just a 30-minute ride south of sedona, you can see all the shops in 1-2 hrs; ate at the Asylum restaurant and I absolutely recommend it, the food was so good and the view was just breathtaking.
There's a lot more things to do if you're an outdoorsy person such as hiking the trails and driving to the overlooks yourselves instead of taking tours.
I know it's usually recommended to take a one-day trip to the Grand Canyon, although it's only 2 hrs away, I think you're cutting yourself short to think you can see and enjoy the GC in half a day. We stayed there for 3 days before we came to Sedona.
We had a fabulous time in Sedona and will go back next year hopefully.
