This was our second stay at the Saguaro; the first was two years ago around the time it opened. We have been pleased both times, but the hotel seems to be in need of some basic maintenance these days. Front desk is professional and helpful. The bar is nice, and Tinto restaurant is very good, although their tapas menu has been somewhat downsized since it's opening. The rooms at Saguaro are so fun, all bright colors and mod. Last time we got a mainly pink room; this time bright orange. These rooms are nicely appointed and the house lotions/shampoos smell awesome. Unfortunatley, our room this time had a balcony facing the parking lot and was on the second floor, so it was not ideal, but still relaxing and sexy. On the downside: walls are on the thin side, and the hotel is in need of some maintenance: loose robe hooks in the room (apparently they no longer provide robes in the rooms as they did two years ago) and many pool lounge chair pads were in bad shape. Not sure why those haven't been maintained or replaced. Otherwise only good things to say!
