Just returned from a family visit to this beautiful resort. There is a lot to love here: Gorgeous surroundings. Friendly, helpful staff, from the front door, to the front desk, to the restaurants. A nice 'dual' pool. Many hot tubs (although these were not too useful in late June heat). A nice casual restaurant with great inventive food for both breakfast and lunch. A nice more formal restaurant (although in AZ this still means you can wear your golf shirt to dinner) with a great chef and very creative menu.
The location would be great if you're going to Angel's spring training games - their spring training facility is right next door.
So what's missing? Well, a couple of things. First, do NOT be fooled by the term "Junior Suite". These rooms are deluxe rooms - one single room (no separation) that's simply a little larger than a normal room. This 'mis-marketing' was quite disappointing. Second - the property itself does not live up to its potential. It's sad to see such a grande dame resort looking a little shabby. A little investment in refreshing the whole facility would go a long way toward getting this back to 5 Stars.
