I went to Sedona with my 24 y.o. daughter to visit family, and had no idea where to stay. After reading many reviews on Trip Advisor, I "Kayaked" Adobe Grand Villas and got a 50% off
rate!!! The place is mostly set up for couples I think - it would make a sweet honeymoon spot as it is very plush, and a little quirky (themed rooms). It IS a B and B - so you get a free delicious breakfast each day, there is a daily dish, but you can order whatever else you want if you don't like the daily dish.
I like that the pool is smallish, so there aren't loads of kids and families screaming and running around. This is not THAT kind of place to stay. That made the stay more relaxing. Having fresh bread, fruit and snacks in the room was great as we didn't get up into Sedona until 10PM and only had a bad meal on Delta flight into Phoenix and had to drive 2 hours up to Sedona.
Free water is such a nice touch, as we hiked the nearby trails twice and you need a lot of water in that climate - it was 95 degrees most of the day. Hike early if you hike at all.
I really loved the property and the fact that it isn't in the tourist trap area was even nicer, as you could go up there in a few minutes, but if you were headed west (Jerome, Cottonwood, etc.) you had no traffic to deal with.
I had family come in for breakfast and they were wonderful about holding the breakfast until 10:30 as they are usually done at 10:00, but we wanted to hike and they were ok with waiting for us, I paid for the extra meals. If you want dinner, you can pay $65.00 a person and get a meal prepared for you. Also, the card gets you into the reception/kitchen building and each evening there was a new treat in there (truffles, cream puffs - YUM).
Pool, hot spa stay open until 10PM, free towels. There is no liquor license here, so BYOB if you want a drink, I think that also keeps the place quiet. I would stay there again in a minute! I think hard to please people might have an issue with the "themed" rooms, if they are too cool to have fun, but if you can just enjoy the concept, the rooms are large, comfortable and CLEAN!
I felt like I was borrowing a Villa for a few days from a rich friend. Loved it!
