“nice for time share”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We spent a some of our timeshare points for a few days of R&R in Scottsdale and were very satisfied with Villa Mirage. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Don't expect all the amenities such as a bathrobe, or even a shower cap, but the kitchenette was nice and bathroom very big - but only one sink (a very low countertop) and no tub. This property is on the very outskirts of Scottsdale, but is within close proximity to Scottsdale Road so getting to every place was easy to do. The staff was nice, but although we asked for housekeeping to stop by one time during our stay they never showed up. You can't get much in the way of food here as they don't have a real restaurant or bar. The have a sandwich/snack place that opens for lunch. The Fairmont Hotel and Zona hotel are nearby if you want to get something to eat close by. I would recommend Villa Mirage but don't expect luxury accommodations.

Room Tip: There are three levels here and if you want to safely keep a window or door open ask for 2nd or 3rd...

Have been returning to this resort since 2001. Because of new management, this property has been nicely upgraded. By the end of this year all units will have upgraded appliances, countertops, bedding, flooring, furniture, etc. There's a living space to accommodate all familiies: studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units. The staff is very helpful. Give it a try!

Room Tip: First floor if needing walk out area; third floor for better view.

From the moment we checked in the service was impeccable. The room had everything one needed. I highly recommend staying at the Villa Mirage in Scottsdale - the rates are excellent, I wish we could have stayed longer. Best Customer SERVICE than any place we've experienced in Arizona. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

My husband and I visited in December by trading a timeshare with RCI. The location is easily accessible to restaurants and shopping. The room was clean and updated. We did not use any of the amenities as we were exploring the area but the front desk staff is very nice. Free wi-fi would be nice but not a deal breaker. We would stay here again given the option.

Room Tip: We asked for a room with a view so we could see the mountains.

We booked this resort via Global Vacations, and were 100% satisfied with our one bedroom condo and the resort overall. Our room was recently renovated, and was very nice. The WIFI offered in our room was $29.95 for 7 days via AT&T, and it worked very well.
This was our first trip to Scottsdale, and we would definitely come back to this resort.
We did go to a 90 minute sales presentation, and received two nights in a one bedroom condo at the Summit Resort in Sedona for $165. We told them up front 90 minutes was the max, and we left after 90 minutes with no problems. The resort in Sedona as AWESOME.

Room Tip: We stayed in a 3rd floor room which is the top floor, so no one above us. Very quiet.

We had been staying at the Hilton Resorts for a week on a golf tour and went to vegas for a couple of days, and this was our finish to oa nice break. Easy to find and staff were very efficient on reception and had us in our 1 bedroom in minutes. This was a remodelled room and was very well provided for, it had everything you would need for your break. Pool and Spa were excellent and with Pool towels provided and plenty of beds round the pool it was nice to chill out in the sun. Food from the poolside cafe was nice and reasonably priced. Definitely need a car to get about.

I came here to stay a few days after running a race in Scottdale. I am a Diamond International member and wanted to use up my last remaining points before they expired at the end of the year. I had no trouble at all finding the resort...my Garmin GPS brought me right to the front door. I like the location, up on the northeast side of Scottsdale where it's less developed and less hectic.

it's a good jumping-off point for day trips. I drove up to Page Springs to visit the wineries and have lunch, easily done in less than a day. A large Albertson's grocery store is less than 5 miles away, and I stopped and stocked up before checking in to the resort.

There are many restaurants nearby but a car is definitely needed. A small pool-side cafe at this resort has very limited menu so don't count on it to be your regular food source.

Even though I am already an owner/member, I was also given the "pitch" to attend a so-called "owners meeting." But I knew it would be a sales pitch. However for those who are able to say "no" and mean it, the reward for sitting through an hour presentation has it's reward. it did give me a chance to learn a few more tips about ownership and I scored a nice $$ gift card and 2-night stay certificate which I can use for another trip.

Not sure if there are still units at this property that have yet to be refurbished, but mine was definitely one that had been refurbished. I found it to be very nice, comfortable, and the bathroom and kitchen were outstanding. The kitchen was well-equiped with good quality utensils and small countertop appliances. A large flatscreen TV in both the living room and the bedroom. The bed was very comfortable as were the pillows, although I always bring my own pillow just in case.

The structure in between the floors acts like a sounding board, unfortunately. I could hear every footfall of the people in the unit above me and unfortunately they had at least one small child with them. The continuous thumping going on up there was at times intolerable. I could not hear voices or TV's, however. Just the heavy-footed walking of adults and the non-stop thump-thump-thump of a small child/children runnning back and forth above me.

I was in building 3, and if I ever do return, i will ask to be in this same building and ask for a top floor room. This building is the most private and is away from the pools so probably the quietest.

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor room to avoid the overhead noise. Building 3 is the furthest away from the pool...

Thank you for taking the time in sharing your thoughts about your most recent stay here at Scottsdale Villa Mirage. We were definitely pleased to hear that our accommodations, amenities, and location met your expectations. While the solicitation to attend these owners meetings is part of the check in process, attendance of this presentation is purely optional for our guests, regardless of their status with us or Diamond Resorts (ie. guest, member, or owner). We are in the process of continuing our refurbishment project with the remaining rooms that have yet to be refurbished for 2013. Obviously these rooms/buildings will not be in use while they are being refurbished, but once completed; our guests will be able to experience the same type of upgraded amenities in these rooms that you described in your review. We were disappointed and equally concerned to hear about the noise issues in the room above yours. Our front desk would have tried to see and stop these noise issues from occurring if contacted at the time these noises were occurring. We sincerely appreciate your continued membership with Diamond Resorts, and look forward to seeing you again soon!
