I had a small work meeting at this hotel, which was recommended by my travel planner. I was so glad she recommended this hotel!!! First, the location and ambiance is fabulous. To be right on Camelback Mountain, literally tucked into the mountainside, is amazing. Its hilly, but a golf cart can get you anywhere. If you are hiker like me,...

This was a perfect spot for annual girls spa trip. We had a two bedroom suite with a nice living area which suited our group perfectly. The staff was extremely helpful. The spa services and food were exceptional.

I came to the Sanctuary for a nice getaway for one. First, the food here is excellent! I had ordered the Filet and the cooks have cooked it just as what I wanted it to be at! Second, In Room Dining was great. Every time I ordered through Ezmeralda and Luke they would bring the food/ drinks hot and fresh!...

From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. Everything you experience is the best. The food, the service, the view, the amenities... It's a must experience, no matter what month. I prefer the summer stays because of the exceptional pool with the negative edge or one of the smaller satellite pools for more privacy. Every time I stay...

I was in Scottsdale Arizona for a mix of business and pleasure. Sanctuary Resort was recommended to me by a colleague and boy am I happy I trusted their recommendation! Was picked up by a car service they arranged and even the driver was wonderful, telling me all about Sanctuary and the surrounding area. I arrived and the bell staff...

We've stayed here a few times and the rooms are different every time we stay, they always feel new and modern. We stayed in a mountain casita and the room was elegant, modern and comfortable. The bathrooms are enormous with spacious free standing tubs. The room and hotel are elevated over paradise valley providing views of desert and mountains. Our...

I highly recommend the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa as a unique resort experience if you have a chance to visit Paradise Valley. From the second I arrived at the resort I experienced excellent service. I was blown away by the Jade Bar which is now my all time favorite place to hang out. The design / décor of...

The first warning signs were the tacky green logo and corny interior design and room style. The manager showed us to a Mountain Casita when we were unimpressed by our Spa Casita's lack of view and mediocre feel, but the step-up felt like a prison. White cement walls that tried to be cool but just weren't. For $750 a night...

A perfect resort with beautiful views. Impeccable accommodations, fantastic restaurant and bar, equally great in-room dining, excellent service and beautiful grounds. Tucked away in the quiet hills of Camelback Mountain but within minutes of museums, botanical garden, hiking trails, etc. This is THE place to stay. You will not be disappointed.

We stayed here 2 nights last April and really enjoyed it. Our room was a suite and decorated just okay but it was comfortable and quiet. We loved using the tennis courts and working out- amazing fitness equipment. Main pool was packed and a disappointment as we couldn't sit anywhere. We loved our breakfast out on the terrace and the...
