From the moment we arrived at this resort to the time we left, we felt that we were really catered to by all the staff. Granted, we were there in the off season and the occupancy rate was low but still it felt like a special experience. Our room was nicely appointed with a very large bathroom. I particularly liked coming back each night to find that chocolates were left on our beds with soothing music coming from the TV (which of course was turned to a Ritz Carlton promotion, but at least it was easy to listen to). The setting in the mountains was great, beautiful, peaceful views with the Saguaro cactus and the nightly sunset tunes of the flutist. We also really enjoyed the guitarist who was playing late one night on the patio. We spent our mornings golfing the rotation that the pros play in the Match Play tournament. Course was pretty difficult but very enjoyable to play. One afternoon we also played the Wild Burro course and it was fun too. The vistas were just spectacular and it was truly a test of desert golf. We usually got a quick breakfast at the coffee shop downstairs and I loved the oatmeal with a variety of fruits to add. We also did the big breakfast buffet one morning as well and it was quite good as well. We had two lunches at Cayton's at the Golf Club and we all enjoyed the salads, quesadillas and sandwiches that we had. Dinner was pretty good as well at the Core Kitchen. You are certainly a captive audience when you are here as it is just too much of a pain to drive to Tucson but we all enjoyed staying at the resort and sampling many of the amenities. We spent an afternoon at the pool as well and the service was truly outstanding. Our water glasses never went empty and just lounging in the pool enjoying the views was great. I would return in a heartbeat!
