We just completed our 3 night stay at this property with our three young children. We stayed in a Garden Cottage (2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms).
Now....to the review:
A+ = setting / service / food service / ambiance
C = rooms (smaller than you would expect / queen size beds with rough linens / very small bathrooms in our cottage / a bit shabby rustic decor).
For the (expensive) price with additional fees for gratuities/etc, you would expect nicer/more comfortable accommodations. With the three kids, even though we had four beds, we were cramped as the Cottage was just too small and seemingly not as clean as you would expect.
This property attempts to be included among the best resorts in the USA, and it falls short a bit. If you are looking for a top notch resort property in a beautiful location without the drawbacks of this resort, try the AMANGANI (Jackson Hole) or AQUALINA (Sunny Isles, FL).
It is possible that this property is the best that Sedona has to offer, as I did not see the other resorts. But, that is a bit hard to believe, given that the Sedona area exudes wealth.
So.... would I come back? not likely, unless the room/cottage interiors were improved. I would try another property (perhaps the Enchantment, though I have not heard anything about that property).
At $ 300, this luxury resort is priced right. Since it is more than double (not including service charges), I do not think it is wrong to expect perfection all around ....
(just seems that management forgot about the room/cottage interiors)
