Stayed at Los Abrigados for 9 days July15-24, 2013. Resort has some activities in Sedona "spirit" that make stay memorable. To appreciate Los Abrigados requires more than a 1-2 night stay. Guests need to get into the rhythmn of "living there". Lynn, Tai Chi instructor, gears class to absolute first time beginners but also makes it very rigorous. A great first time immersion that I highly recommend. Classes are held twice weekly in a wooded, grass grove along Oak Creek.
There are some evening programs that are unique, such as a concert/presentation by Native American flutist. Gifted, accomplished artist who encouraged lots of audience questions and input. Approx. 20 attended and most all voiced how they had a greater understanding and enjoyment/appreciation of Native sounds.
Kids/teens enjoy checking out equipment and games. My daughter said she enjoyed spa the most with exercise equipment, steam room and also just having very nice ground and lobby areas to walk and lounge around on. I noted that the resort is very "teen friendly" -- youth lounge in lobby with their laptops and Ipads or hang out around pool and mini-golf and enjoy themselves. The on-site Steak and Sticks restaurant has good burgers and delivers to your room. The menu could use a bit more variety or daily specials.
The wifi is a problem, but seems to be a Sedona wide problem. . . A few shops we were in had internet down days. . . my verizon worked only intermiettently, etc.
Yes, only the children's pool is operable, but it is fairly large and has 6 ft. depth. . . To correct another reviewer, the new pool/jacuzzi is being worked on. I spoke to the workers a few times. About 5-6 guys per day are doing plumbing/electrical and other technical tasks. But, I doubt if the pool would be ready before middle September.
The spa and fitness center have great equipment and some classes. More classes on how to use the equipment would be helpful.
Note that the resort is located right by the intersection of Hwy 179 and Hwy 89-- very convenient. But it is nestled off the road and very private. Also next to the well known Tlacapaque Market. (Note: there is a Farmer's Market weekly)
We had one bedroom apt. near children's pool that had full complement of kitchen appliances and utensils as is standard with Diamond. This little extra is very helpful for that "stay at home" experience.
