-The grounds are exquisite. This is not a big place, but the walkways and landscaping make it feel very spacious. The pool is small-ish, but beautiful.
-The service was superb. Every employee was extremely friendly and helpful. (I really liked the pesto served at the restaurant. The server not only brought me some to take with me, he wrote out the recipe for me. Who does that?) They actually explained the reason for the resort fee. What a concept! The fee is used for tips, internet, parking, etc.
-We stayed in a newly renovated room (bungalow) that was spacious, and tastefully decorated. The bed and linens were great. Housekeeping was done 2 times per day.
-The cost was reasonable. Our total was right around $700 total for 3 nights. They also gave us $50 in credits for the restaurant and spa.
-The workout room(s) were small, but adequate. Mostly cardio machines (state of the art) and some free weights.
The mosquitos came out late in the day. Bring insect repellant if you're going to be outside.
Bottom line: I can't wait to go back. This place is comfortable, beautiful, and totally accommodating. The best part? The resort is only a couple of miles from Nordstrom's "Last Chance" Store. Worth the trip to Phoenix!
