I stayed at The Links for a week on a timeshare exchange. I was immediately impressed with the property upon arrival. (Although I did not appreciate the "bate and switch" at check in, being told to meet with another agent for my "welcome" package which was just a sales pitch.)
The property is an apartment resort, not a hotel. But the pools were beautiful and every morning were being cleaned and maintained. The units were very nicely upgraded and appointed with upscale appliances and crystal stemware.
There were family picnic and grill areas and separate smaller pool just for adults.
The beds were probably the most comfortable I have ever slept in. If I could have brought one home, I would have asked how! My unit had a washer/dryer which was much appreciated since I stayed so long.
The location is quite far north of Phoenix and Mesa, but close to Scottsdale. There is not much you can walk to (except golfing) and you will need a car to get around. Good shopping and grocery stores were within a mile.
My only complaints during the trip were: (1) the first evening, there was some type of domestic disturbance with yelling and screaming and a young, pregnant woman vomiting outside. It went on for about 10 minutes before I finally called the desk and someone came to investigate but the people were gone. (2) I liked to swim early in the morning but the pool was always full of hornets and I got stung. The hornets were not there in the afternoons and evenings.
