Mountain View, California5 contributions2 helpful votes
This is an extremely well-run small resort. They have hired friendly staff and trained them exceptionally well. Small details, such as every morning at breakfast and immediately after being seated, a bus person brought waters and offered to put in our espresso orders in advance of the waitperson taking our order. They’ve figured out that people don’t want to wait for their morning coffee. We enjoyed every meal, and we especially appreciated that they well accommodated a health-critical dietary restriction. For dessert, the gelato was locally-made and glorious. For lunch, I loved their quinoa salad. Outside dining was delightful with plenty of heaters and blankets to ward off the chill. The creekside property is impeccably maintained and feels very relaxing despite being a 5-minute walk from the most bustling part of downtown Sedona. The resort views of the rock formations (and Snoopy!) are breathtaking. The pool was wonderful, relaxed and casual - no mad rush needed to secure a chaise. Our room was super quiet which was a surprise given there was a family with two young boys next door - never heard them! We enjoyed meeting other guests throughout the property; there is something about the resort that fosters easy interactions among the guests and staff. Also enjoyed meeting some nice dogs at this dog-friendly property. Loved our stay (MUCH more than my stay at Enchantment a year before) and look forward to returning to Amara the next time we visit Sedona.

Definitely recommend. Every member of the staff we dealt with was excellent...friendly, accommodating, and always asking how they can help. Courtyard room was spacious, but bathroom was unusually small...not a deal-breaker, though. Saltrock menu is limited, but the food is excellent. Although located uptown, it feels secluded.

Our experience at Salt Rock would not have been the same without the our amazingly kind and enthusiastic waitress Sammi, her recommendations were spot on, from the drinks to the dessert everything was delicious. We started off with one of the margaritas and the Jackalope craft cocktail. This was the first time I have enjoyed mescal tequila, the cinnamon and sugar rim was a wonderful balance to the smokiness! The Jackalope craft cocktail was really good as well and for sure the best drink I had with bourbon! We were feeling pretty torn between the porkbelly tacos and the chili limon fries so we ended up getting both! Absolutely no regrets because they complimented each other very well! Our main courses were the shrimp tamal and the jackfruit tacos. I didn’t try the tamal but my friend said it was grand slam and my jackfruit tacos were divine, the glaze they put ok the jackfruit was sweet bbq up front with a slightly spicy finish, highly recommend these if you like jackfruit because it was prepared really well, firm yet soft at the same time with a nice fresh slaw on top. Do yourself a favor and don’t miss out on this place! And try to request Sammi her service was absolutely wonderful!

We had a lovely southwestern dinner on the terrace here. A shout-out to our server, SAMMI: She was friendly and efficient, with good recommendations, and kept on top of everything while also taking care of a number of other tables. I rarely write restaurant reviews, but Sammi popped, and made a nice dinner even better.

I had dinner here for my birthday and I had an amazing time. The menu was great, conversations and wine had me laughing, and the service was over the top. Sammi was excellent! She made sure we were taken care of at all times. From dinner to desert it was a birthday to remember!

Beautiful location! The spa services were fabulous. We ate breakfast outside with a wonderful view of the mountains. The one downside is I felt the rooms were on the smaller side with not.a lot of storage space nor a sitting area so the space felt cramped with 3 adults in the room.

A stay at Amara provides the ultimate experience! I have stayed for vacation and most recently for work and I cannot say enough good things about the resort. The friendliness of the staff, comfort of the rooms, enjoyment of the jacuzzi and pool and the location were at the top of my enjoyment list.
