Our family of four stayed in a two bedroom condo and it was very nice. Everything worked, you got your own private indoor garage for the car, it was clean, the pool area is very well maintained. It is out of the way, there are no restaurants within walking distance, grocery stores are a bit of a drive,and so are...

We are Raintree Vacation Club owners and originally stayed at this property in 2010 soon after they acquired it. The property needed a face lift, but was well managed. The property was mostly sold to Worldmark in 2012 or 2013 and we stayed there again in December 2013 and had a terrible experience. The reservations were lost. Then when we...

Our family of seven stayed in a three-bedroom in early March. We were in Phoenix for Spring Training baseball. This was our second stay. The first time, two years ago, was via an RCI exchange, before WorldMark purchased most of the property. Had WM not become the owner I would not have stayed there a second time, as the property...

We came to this place just after WorldMark took over the property last year and book a month for this year. We just love the location and friendly staff. The rooms are consistence with what is listed in the information about the property and it equipped with the items we have come to expect from WroldMark properties. We have booked...

It is peaceful, but other than the pool and hiking, there is not a lot to do. A rental car is a must. The units are nice, very much like apts. No pictures on the wall, very sterile, but clean. I had read trip advisor so I knew it would be hard to find at night since we had a...

We actually booked this property through RCI (Resorts Club International). I had asked when I made the reservation for a kind/two twin set up as we were traveling with our two teen/adult daughters. The first problem was finding the property as they are listed with RCI as the Desert Arroyo Resort. The property is in an industrial park, which is...

As other have said, this property is in a business area and can be difficult to find, but it is right on the edge of the South Mountain preserve, so easy hiking right outside your door. It seems to be a condo complex the bought out....as they have single car garages below them. The units are equipt with residential appliances...

Arrived after midnight and was impressed by the reserved private garage under our condo. The condo was spotlessly clean and cool. Nicely stocked kitchen and bath. Very spacious 2 bedroo.

We arrived with an RV, unaware that they would have a parking problem. We located a spot and discussed the location with security who was ok with it. The manager was not satisfied but could only suggest we take it to an rv lot where we could park it fot $30\night. He was rude, unhelpful, obnoxious, We will never return...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It is nearly impossible for anyone who is in any way sensitive to the beauty and grandeur of nature to stand in this special place and not feel the power that the Pimas refer to as the strong medicine of the South Mountain Preserve. Here, we have rediscovered a special place to share with our owners and guests. This is truly a place of deep relaxation and natural beauty. A place gently cradled in the largest regional wilderness park preserve in the country which covers over 50 square miles of pristine Sonoran desert. Surrounded by unspoiled panoramas and teeming with a stunning variety of wildlife that belongs to this desert community, it is seemingly a remote retreat, minutes from downtown Phoenix. ... more   less
