The Enchantment resort is nothing like we've ever seen before. We're from Ohio, so we do not see beautiful mountains with all their colors in our state. After flying into Phoenix, the 2 hour drive North doesn't seem like it takes a long time at all. I, personally, was taking pictures the whole time! Once arriving at the resort, we couldn't believe how breathtaking the scenery was-the pictures do not do it justice. Upon arrival, even the gatekeeper was glad we were there! Once we checked in, a bellman led us to our room (Junior suite = amazing!), and he explained so many things about the resort and wrote on our map where everything was. I appreciated that he took the time to inform us. Absolutely every single staff member at the resort was courteous and kind. It was so refreshing! They will go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay and there are little surprises around every corner. We decided to take the 2 hour Pink Jeep Tour that's in Sedona. It goes through the mountains and it's like an 'off road' type of tour. We recommend this! I was sceptical because I get motion sickness easily. I asked them about how bumpy the ride was, etc. and they gave me the option to sit in the front (which helps) and take Dramamine. I was greatful for their suggestions. Our tour guide was Paul and he was extremely knowledgeable about the mountains, Sedona, animals that are in the area-a very laid back guy. We also visited the Grand Canyon for the first time! Again, pictures do not do it justice. The drive was about 2 hours North of Sedona, but there are places to stop along the way (Flagstaff, Williams) depending on your route. All the restaurants at the resort were delicious. We enjoyed sitting by the campfire just outside the Tii Gavo restaurant, looking at the mountains and meeting people from other countries, discussing our travels. The pool area was refreshing and the pool bathrooms were exquisite! I'm sure that sounds silly, but usually public restrooms aren't up to par, but theirs are fantastic! Again, every detail is taken care of there. We sat on the balcony at View 180 our last night at the resort and there was a guitar player playing very authentic, native american-like music. It was very peaceful and completed the ambiance. Now for the negatives - one was with the Mii Amo Spa. We walked to it just across the way to check it out, and I asked a few questions. I felt that the receptionists were rude and passive (snooty, to be honest). I was surprised by this because it's a beautiful spa and we've had a great experience with the staff at the resort. We ate at their cafe, and it was fine. Secondly, we feel the room rate is fair for all you get, however the food and drinks are quite expensive. A lunch by the pool with a couple cocktails was about $60 for 2 people. I still feel it is well worth it, but be advised. Perhaps head into Sedona for some supplies-there is liquor at Walgreens! Overall, a wonderful vacation and we highly recommend staying at Enchantment.
