This was a beautiful spread out resort outside of Scottsdale . The staff was friendly and as helpful as they could be considering the current circumstances . No housekeeping services due to Covid . It was very hard to get an Uber to go into Scottsdale for dinner and the resort only had two restaurants that were functioning . On the last night that we were there , there was a power outage and they only had one restaurant working .there were only two pools on the resort which were full most of the time especially on the weekend . Food and beverage service at the pool Was mediocre. Unless you want to strictly stay on the resort and get away from everything then this would be the perfect place . If you would like to venture out then I would not Recommend this place .

Originally I wrote this under the Boulders Spa listing but this listing is more to the point. This was our first time at this property of the Hilton Chain. Staff was excellent and attentive. Check in was quick and friendly. We arrived around 5:30PM (Check in 4 or later) Staff brought us to our “Casita” via special golf carts with luggage compartments in back. There is a $35 resort fee per day which is to cover amenities and gratuities. I did give an extra $5 to the driver as he was extra nice and besides carrying our heavy suitcase up a flight of stairs and into the unit, showed us around and explained everything in the room and including the self locking balcony slider doors. (Later we accidentally locked ourselves out on the balcony and were able to text the main desk to have someone rescue us). The room we had was extra large as it was an upgraded casita from the standard ones. ( I recommend you reserve using the Hilton App as there are much better choices for rooms and when you are a member you can choose upgrades for extra $$ and sometimes get lots of perks for no extra $) App prices are the same or lower than major booking sites. We had the experience of eating dinner at “THE GRILL” restaurant which requires the shuttle to bring you there (Plenty of shuttles are available all day) Apparently they were short handed at dinner and service a bit slow and not up to Hilton standards that evening. The next 2 mornings we again ate at “The Grill” for breakfast and were treated to excellent service and great food at typical hotel restaurant prices ( All a la carte) There are more than 1 pool and the main pool behind the lodge was well serviced with towels etc (handicapped swing is available) there also is an attendant making continuous rounds for drinks / food that can be added to your room tab. Unfortunately we only had 2 days visit and the place has 2 golf courses (one for members only) but we did get to experience 2 great sunrises and see plenty of local wildlife early in the morning (rabbits, Quayles, etc)

Room was smelly and floors were dirty. No room service due to Covid, and no way to get basic supplies locally. Cable channels only a handful of locals. Coffee bar had mostly decaf. Products in shower very basic.

This wonderful old gem needs some polish. And the NASCAR wannabe shuttle drivers need to slow down. Coffeemate instead of half and half in a 5 Star hotel? Hmmm...as Chris Rock would say, "That ain't right!" Front desk staff and service personnel working the rooms and grounds were very nice and helpful!!

This place is so beautiful. The views are stunning. Excellent golf course and to top it off the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The casitas are spacious and very clean. I’ll be back very soon.
