My wife and I are checking out tomorrow after 2 perfect days at Camelback. In a prior post from 2 days ago, the aborted stay at Desert Ridge was detailed. Upon arriving at Camelback we gladly were informed that our Sun Roof casita was ready (10:30 AM) so we had a full day to enjoy the resort? The front desk staff welcomed us back as we have stayed here many times prior and sincerely thanked us for our loyalty. It is always beautiful, peaceful, restful, clean and staffed by many long term friendly employees. Our waiter last evening recognized us from our last stay and cold not have been more attentive. BLT was excellent as was Rita's which has been the norm on past visits. The hotel was packed but totally staffed to meet the needs of the guests. I learned a lesson from the Desert Ridge stay. Spend more and receive the finest vs saving a few bucks and going second class. Thank you Camelback. We are already planning an October and December return visits.

We are so sorry about your problems at our sister property, Desert Ridge but we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us! We value your loyalty and can't wait to have you back in October and December. You will have to let us know what you think about our bathroom and golf course renovations which will both be done in October!!

This resort is awesome! I traveled for work, but come here for a vacation - it is beautiful!!!
The view is fabulous, golf, swimming, spa and pool the list goes on and on, and little golf carts to take you place to place on the grounds.

Room Tip: I'm sure all the rooms are nice, but mine was in front of main entrance with balcony looking out...

We have stayed at this resort 2 years in a row in the month of September. The staff is friendly. The condo's are clean and easily accessible. We couldn't say enough about the place. Can't wait to go back!

Very nice hotel with a real Old Phoenix charm to it!
The Camelback mountain is in front of the resort and its an amazing hike!!!
The rooms are very rustic and the AC units works perfectly! And believe me, you will need it if you go on spring or summer!

The grounds are beautiful! The bar is lively and the swimming pool area is scenographic!

Hopefully I will return one day!

Just returned from a business/pleasure trip with the hubby. Staff was great. Location was great. Scenery was awesome. Hotel food was great. No complaints from us. Hopefully we can return some day. The rooms are tile floors, so make sure no one is above you or ask for an upper level room.

Room Tip: Make sure no one is above you. Tile floors make a lot of noise. Plan a day at the spa, it is worth i...

Very nice place. Nice casita type rooms. Staff in general very helpful and friendly. Temp control in room worked very well though did blow kind of hard through the vent. Toilet flushed with the power and noise of a jet engine which I guess could be a plus depending on your situation.... Grounds are beautiful. Outdoor bar quite a good venue. Tried a little of the bar food which was OK, nothing special. I have to deny them 5 stars due to a mistake they make in my reservation which I had to struggle to fix. Would definitely go back though.

We stayed here the first week of March for a business getaway including a business meeting and golf. This resort has beautiful grounds and excellent service. Once you arrive, you will find all the hotel staff are ready to provide assistance. The rooms can be kind of confusing to find, so having them drop you off with the golf carts is a nice convenience. Rita's restaurant was fabulous. I had a great filet and some of the other guests enjoyed the fajitas. The service is exceptional and a great wine selection. I think this is one of the original resorts in Phoenix, but the grounds, rooms, and restaurant are all very well maintained, modern, clean, and you will find it to be a beautiful first class property to stay at. I did not have time to visit the spa, pool, etc. on this trip, but I am sure they are all top notch. You will not be disappointed when staying here. We also had a business meeting and breakfast at the golf course where the staff made extra efforts to make sure we had everything we needed. This was a great luxurious place to getaway for a few days after a long winter !!

Room Tip: I stayed in a room with 2 double beds and found it to be comfortable and quiet. I do not have experi...
