My 10-year old son and I came back to Sedona Summit for a father-son trip. We visit this resort 2 years ago (through Interval International) and bought into the Diamond Resort time-share. The location is just gorgeous, with the red rocks in the background. Our “mesa-level” room partially overlooked the breathtaking mountains in the distance.
The resort is located about 5 miles west of downtown Sedona, very near Red Rock State Park. Oak Creek Canyon is a beautiful drive. There are many free hiking trails around (nominal parking pass fee) along with several fee-required parks. Slide Rock State Park is great family fun but be aware that the water is still cold (65-67 degrees) even in August. Grand Canyon south rim is only about a 2-hour drive away. There are also numerous other National Parks and Monuments within an hour’s drive. We visited many of these wonderful places between last 2 trips. This is a place you need to have a car.
Check in was busy when we arrived at 4:00. Our room was not ready until 5:00. Maybe because we were already Diamond owners, they did not send us to the concierge for a “parking pass” to get us to attend a time-share presentation. I have always dreaded that part of checking into time-share properties. Activities staff were helpful and friendly. But front desk was not (see below).
Parking was plentiful and within short distance to the suite. There were several pools with hot tubs scattered around the complex. There was no restaurant but many within short driving distances.
Planned activities were available but not abundant. Small game room but had plenty of things to do (foosball, video games, Wii, ping-pong, movie rental). There were laundry facilities (if you didn’t get a room with washer/dryer) and exercise room behind the reception building.
We stayed in a 1-bedroom suite with a balcony and partial view of the red rocks. The room was large. Everything was updated, working and clean. There was a fireplace that we did not use during the summer. The suite was quiet. Appliances were pretty new and stainless steel. Countertops were all stone. Carpet was clean and furniture was quite new and comfortable. There was a shower and a Jacuzzi tub.
There was a good-size flat panel TVs in the living room with a DVD player, and another smaller flat panel in the bedroom. A surprisingly quiet stacked washer-dryer unit was in the room. There was a laptop-size safe in the room.
Wireless internet access (from AT&T) cost $29 a week. There was no wired internet option. I would call it “low-speed internet access.” Majority of the time, it was so slow that there was barely any service. I actually got much faster and more reliable service on the flight out to AZ at 30,000 feet! When I called front desk, the person said they have had several complaints but she actually told ME to call AT&T. Really? Good management would have been proactive instead of having guests do the job for them. I called AT&T two days in a row and all they said was they were working on it!
Nice location, nice rooms. But the very slow internet service and poor front desk response led me to drop the rating to 4 stars.
