Sat on the patio and enjoyed drinks and dinner. The atmosphere was relaxing. Not what I expected. The food was fresh and delicious. Our server was very attentive. Will go back again and again.

We spent one night this past weekend at this hotel. The unique desert landscape at the hotel was breathtaking; however, it was too hot to sit outdoors. We were disappointed to learn the cocktail lounge and restaurant were not open on Sundays. Restaurants are nearby. The room we were given was small and smelled faintly of dog urine; but, the...

This is my go to hotel in Tucson. The rooms are extremely large and most of the rooms have fireplaces, so it is extra cozy in the winter. It has a contemporary southwestern decor and is quite comfortable.

Don't know if they've changed chefs or management, but the quality of the food just keeps going downhill. The mussels in broth used to be our favorite appetizer / happy hour treat. This visit the mussels were presented in a watered-down tomato broth studded with pickled green chili's and loaded with small cubes of ham. Ham?! Did not do a... More

The resort satisfies the highest demands - paradies in the middle of the desert! Picturesque buildings, generously applied rooms with all facilities, wonderful swimmingpool surrounded by palms, dining underneath the stars - what a romantic atmosphere! The service is also consistently very good, friendly and professional. This resort is really worth a visit! Great tipp! Roland

Meals were good. Service was great. Nice to have a bar on premises. Thought the meals were a little over priced and not a lot of choices.

We ate here multiple times over as week because by the end of the week I simply did not have the energy to go elsewhere to wait in a huge line for food that was not better than where I was staying! Service was also good and such a nice atmosphere sitting outside by the fire.
