We stayed here 4 years ago and enjoyed it so much that we came back with our children this time. We got the requested casita with a view towards the mountains and the golf course. It was spacious and quiet, and we saw all sorts of wonderful wildlife: javalinas, deer, rabbits and many colourful birds.
The bed and the sofa bed were both very comfortable, although it would be nice to have a "twin" option for the main bedroom. The rooms were very clean, and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. The air conditioning was a bit loud, but efficient. There was even a washing machine and dryer in a little room next to the kitchen. The bathroom was very big, with a bathtub and a separate shower, and two basins.
We bought our own food and ate breakfast on our terrace every morning. It was lovely to listen to the birds. It would be nice to have 4 chairs for the terrace, and some cushions for them, instead of just the two chairs.
One evening we went down to the pool. It was clean and really big, and we were the only people using it at the time. The hot tub was very relaxing. The gym looked nice, but we didn't use it. Just above the hotel you can walk on trails through the desert, a good exercise in the morning. The golf course looks very good, too.
There are various supermarkets down the hill from the hotel, and also some restaurants. It's a short drive to the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum and Saguaro National Park West, and not far from downtown Tucson and the Pima Air and Space Museum.
We would love to stay in a two bedroom casita next time, but they seem to be quite difficult to book. I've never seen one available on hotels.com, and even on the Shell website they hardly ever come up for the dates I have checked.
