I booked three nights at the Amara Resort and Spa thinking I would have a quiet, relaxing stay. I have been here one night and my stay has been anything but quiet and relaxing. The view from the pool is beautiful, but the pool is constantly filled with kids and their pool toys. There are not enough lounge chairs and the noise level at the pool is unlike anything I've ever experienced. The pool opens at 7am and would be wonderful if there were adult only hours. However, families rush down to the pool first thing to secure chairs and cabanas (which have fans and TVs of all things!) so there is really no time for someone to enjoy the beautiful Sedona scenery with a little peace and quiet. I was quite disappointed with the view from my room which looked at a cabin behind the hotel.
I guess this hotel was just nothing like I expected. When I think of Sedona, I think of a peaceful, relaxing place with breathtaking views. Unfortunately, if you want those things, do not stay at the Amara Resort & Spa. You will get a gorgeous view from the pool but are likely to be splashed by a kid doing a cannon ball into the water. The pool is also small and really only comfortably accommodates 15 people.
