“Marriott Desert Ridge”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Excellent adult and family resort. Hotel is connected to the Wildfire Golf Club which boasts two excellent courses, a Palmer and a Faldo course, You can access the golf shop through the hotel. The hotel property includes several large pools, a lazy river with a small slide and two outside hot tubs. The pool bar and cafe offers various lunch items and features the Kokopelli Cabana Colada with 3 types of rum. If you like a refreshing desert-type drink, this one is excellent. The resort also has an excellent spa with a small cafe and its own secluded and quiet adults-only pool. The complex is located a very short distance from the Desert Ridge Mall that offers various casual restaurants, shops, movie theater etc. Many guests take advantage of the the 4 pm to 6 pm happy hour at Roy's offering reduced price drinks and appetizers sitting around a fire pit under the stars.

Room Tip: We prefer a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor overlooking the pool area in the center of the complex. No...

This was a great get away for our anniversary. I loved the hotel and the pools and lazy river were quite relaxing to stay all day long. A 3 hour ride to Sedona and the Grand Canyon were worth your time as it is a gorgeous drive. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Make sure to get a room with a view of the back of the hotel overlooking the pool/golf couse area.

I absolutely loved this resort! I went with a group of friends and stayed for 3 days. I now wish that we would have stayed a little longer. The rooms are nice with large bathrooms and plush robes! The spa was the best I have ever experienced! The spa has its own pool, sauna, steam room, hot tub and restaurant. The breakfast buffet was a little pricey but they do have a nice selection of foods! If you are at the pool and want a drink be prepared to go to the bar and get it yourself. The drinks were also a little pricey but very good. This resort is located across the street from a huge shopping complex that has a lot of restaurants if you prefer not to eat at the resort. The staff and locals are very friendly! I highly recommend this resort!

Just returned from a 3 day conference at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge. Wish the conference was longer, and not because of the meetings! It's a beautiful property, meticulously maintained, excellent service. They really know how to handle large business meetings and conferences. The food and service is outstanding. We had lunch and dinner buffets outside each day. Beautiful surroundings, and the evening dinner settings had a wonderfully exotic southwestern feel. Really very nice.

We stayed at the JW for 3 nights and upgraded to the Griffin Club room. What an amazing value. Breakfasts, lunches snacks, beverages, open bar from 4pm-11pm. Evening appetizers and deserts all included in the price. As an added bonus we also had complimentary access to the spa public areas. I had a facial and massage and both were fabulous. The only reason for the 4 rating was that on Thursday night the band played in the main outdoor area until 11pm and could be heard in our room. Otherwise the pool areas were serene, the service was excellent and we had no cares in the world. I have stayed at the Biltmore, Princess and Westin Kierland. The Griffin Club Room and their staff made our stay one of the best.
