Wow! Passed the resort a few times over the years but finally stayed for a business retreat. Rooms are large and really nice - think they really compare to Scottsdale/Sedona resorts but at a more reasonable price. Very impressed. Food was prepared for our group (pre-determined menu) but was very well prepared and delicious. I'd definitely come back. It is... More

We played golf 3 days on Gold Canyon's 2 outstanding courses. All the employees were courteous and very nice. We stayed in room 1061 which was very close to... More

Gold Canyon is a great place to plan a golfing vacation. My husband enjoys the golf and I enjoy the spa. The desert views are beautiful. While golfing you have a clear view of Superstition Mountain. It is breath taking when you see it. The beautiful colorful sunrise or sunset are a must see. The restaurant is good. The pool... More

Enjoyed a couple of nights at this resort. Bright the family along for a conference held here. Our camily of six stayed in a room with two queen beds and a pull out couch. The couch was nice in that it was a full sized couch, not a love seat size. This made for a larger bed than the average... More

We stopped here for drinks and wish we had stayed for dinner. Outstanding property, beautiful views of Superstition Mountain and great service. Prices are very reasonable, and the menu is varied. Summer specials are available.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights on a business trip. The rooms are large and clean which is great when you are working as you can spread out and set up your desk etc. The food is well priced and the portions large, good bar selection and very friendly staff. Randy at the bar will help with anything... More

Friday night dinner at the resort is always pleasant and with the summer special of 1/2 off ...lets stay out of the kitchen! Enjoyed 2 steak dinners, cooked to perfection, one was ordered well, and it was tender and tasted great with a side of steamed vegetables. We arrived early to dinner and time we left the restaurant was full!

We were on our way to Vegas and planned to stay the night in Litchfield Park when we saw the sign for Gold Canyon. Staying there allowed us to play a round of golf even though it was 2:30, over 100 degrees and only 1 other group on the course. We ended up staying 2 nights. Both courses were in... More
