Luxury, serenity, great service, beautifully lush setting, and lovely accommodations make this a wonderful place to stay in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area. Our son and family had a spacious, well designed room near the pool that comfortably accommodated the three of them. My husband and I had a casita but were upgraded to a gorgeous villa (#121) after a plumbing problem in the casita's bathroom. It is important to note that the plumbing problem appeared to be due to some cables being laid on the public road and that we were graciously moved within minutes of reporting the problem. The villa had two large patios, one with a completely private outdoor shower. The bathroom had two sinks, claw foot tub, double rain shower, plenty of towels, full length mirror, digital scale, robes, slippers, and lovely bath products. The toilet and bidet were in a separate room. The large living room easily seated 5 and had a flatscreen TV, iPod doc, and CD player. The bedroom with king size bed had a round fireplace and flatscreen TV as well as charging stations on the nightstands. The wood and slate floors were comfortable and contributed to the open, clean feeling of the villa. Shutters on all of the windows and doors could be fully opened or closed to let in or block the light. For those who travel with a lot of baggage, there was a walk-in closet with safe. We had only one meal at Cervantes Bistro, the stand-in during the remodel of T. Cookes. The brunch was good with everything well prepared and beautifully served on an outdoor patio. Like most resorts, the brunch was expensive. We used the pool everyday. It was quiet (not really a children's pool) and well tended with options for shade, sun, or sun with mist. A small cafe serves drinks and light meals. In addition to the beautiful property and setting, every staff member was thoughtful, friendly, and helpful. The valets, bellmen, and reception staff went out of their way to see that our stay was a real vacation.
