If you like the desert but enjoy your comfort this is the place to stay. Its located up in the foothills overlooking Tuson. The views of the city or the mountains are excellant. Confortable and clean rooms, all with patio or balcony. Lots of roomn outdoors, you can sit by the pool, or sit in the hot tub which has it own little waterfall or sit in the somewhat seluded patios (with heaters for those cool desert evenings). There are paved paths going up in the hills which lead to a yr round waterfall. This is a great place if you are a nature lover but also like your comfort. It is on the outskirts of Tuscon but this place has everything you need so why go into downtown...isnt the purpose of a vacation is to get away from it all? If you must get away from the hotel go to Sabrina Canyon which is just a short trip (2-3 miles?) I really felt this place is in tune with nature.
