Pool was wonderful - great views, GREAT service (attentive without being overbearing) and wonderful quiet. No cheesy music or loud groups - just people chilling happily enjoying the sun. The...

There aren't many resorts I'd call perfect but this is one of them. From the time you arrive bellman are pleasant and efficient. They call in your info before you arrive to the desk so everyone is calling you by name. The new mountain suites are stunning. Far nicer than the Ritz, Four Seasons or Phoenician. Room service was amazing,... More

Had a great stay at this hotel, paid $700 a night, but pleased in every way. Nice villa suite overlooking mountains, friendly staff and no issues. Great proximity to heart of scottsdale for shopping, dining, and entertainment

The Sanctuary was an amazing experience. The suite was specular with tremendous views of Camelback. You could almost reach out and touch the mountain! The staff was helpful, warm and professional. The food was delicious and accommodated dietary preferences. The spa was fantastic with a wide array of services to suit any need. I can't wait to return!

Just fabulous. Grounds are gorgeous. Elements restaurant is unbelievable. The spa is one of the best we've ever gone to - spa treatments and fitness classes were amazing. Staff is unbelievably attentive, but not at all obtrusive. Spot on food and drink recommendations for us. We've gone on many a girls trip, but this was the best by far. Don't... More

We hiked Camelback mountain, lounged by the infinity pool, enjoyed spa services and workout classes. The food at Elements was amazing and I hope to return one day soon.
