“Recuperative, Elegantly Appointed, Pristinely Cared for and Comfy”
Reviewed April 12, 2009

I apologize for the late posting, but my husband and I have spoken of our experience at this lovely property numerous times over the last year and I knew I needed to write something. We stumbled upon this little jewel on our way back from a horrible experience at a guest ranch in Tucson. We literally rented a car and left Tucson driving toward Sedona without a reservation. We were traveling with our two kids 10 and 13, one of which did not feel well. We are a well traveled family and are accustom to staying in finer accomodations. Upon arriving in the majestic, breathtaking Sedona area we set out to find somewhere to lay our weary heads. Stumbling onto Adobe Grand Villas was like a dream come true. The inn keeper negotiated a decent (not cheap) price for our room, which I believe was called the Cinder Brick Room? It had a lovely copper fountain running on the door as you walked into the suite. Linens were plush and luxurious and the bathroom as spacious with a separate spa bath and super large walk-through shower as well as a separate toliet room.

The grounds were pristine, lovely and art-filled. It was peaceful like a boutique spa. The lobby and cafe areas where smartly appointed, elegant and in keeping with the surrounding Sedona vistas. There was bottled water available in a little refrigerator. The breakfasts were multi course gourmet and delicious. Dinner was available with a reservation, but we did not take advantage of that service. We had planned to stay one night, but negotiated a second night because our room was so cozy and recuperative we didn't want to leave. They had movies in the lobby that you could borrow and watch and we took advantage of that in the evenings. The second night we brought a take home meal from a nice area restaurant and ate it in the little kitchenette area. It was delightful. We left and returned to Las Vegas for the final four days of our vacation at the Bellagio. I have profusely recommended this property to several friends who are planning to visit the Sedona area.

While we were in Sedona we took a Pink Jeep Tour. Lot's of fun. The guide was very knowledgable. The pictures were so good we used them in our holiday card!

Don't get me wrong, this is a lovely property with beautiful rooms. But, for the price we paid, it wasn't all that AND a bag of chips. It is way overpriced.
The hotel is very clean and the rooms are impeccable. However, we had problems with our bathroom, that were not fixed during our stay. Instead of being offered a credit, we were offered a 50 gift certificate for the lobby gift shop. When we explained that we weren't chachkas kind of folks, we were told that we would have to speak to someone else about. I spoke to the owner the next day and he offered to credit our visa, which wasn't done until I emailed a complaint that we didn't receive it. The bread in our rooms was so tough it was like cutting through wood. We didn't even eat it. The coffee/tea cookie area is nice, but the afternoon tapas/hor doeurves were probably from Costco. The included breakfast was good, but you don't really get a choice of what to order. The pool isn't heated and is really small. No gym or work out facilites. Really a 6 dressed up as a nine. I think you could get just as nice a place in beautiful Sedona for 1/3 of the price.

After spending a couple of days in the Grand Canyon, my husband and I decided to see what Sedona was all about. The morning we were leaving the Grand Canyon, we checked Trip Advisor to get reviews on hotels in Sedona. We wanted a romantic place, not your run of the mill Hilton or Sheraton room. Something different. Boy, did we hit the jackpot!

First off, the drive from the Canyon to Sedona, down the side of the mountain was beautiful. You drive along side the mountain; really keeps you on your toes. The views are breathtaking, and there are so many places to pull over and enjoy the scenery.

Our reservation thru TripAdvisor, brought us to Expedia, and we got a web special for $179(it came to $250 w/fees). We had seen the pictures on the website, however, seeing Adobe Grand Villas is unbelieveable. We were given the Cowboy Villa. The door had a wagon-wheel waterfall on it. When the door was opened, we smelled the aroma of freshly-baked bread(there are bread ovens in each villa). Evidently, they bake a loaf of bread in each room which is made to be ready right as the guest is entering the room. Fresh butter and jelly, ect. is in the refrigerator, along with complimentary cold drinks, snacks, hot teas and coffees.

The bed was a plush, beautiful covered wagon, complete with lassos, pots, pans, ect., attached to the sides. Every detail in the room, from the one of a kind lighting(lamps, lanterns), cowboy boots on the fireplace, was hand-picked.

The bathroom was the side of a regular hotel room. It had a jetted whirlpool tub for 2 with a fireplace, and a separate rain shower behind saloon-type doors. There was a saddle positioned over the shower alcove. All of the faucets in the bathroom were one-of-a-kind creations.

Every item in the room had been painstakenly selected to make the guest's experience truly memorable. I would definitely love to go back and spend more than one night.

They serve hot soup and warm cookies in the main house in the afternoon. Also, breakfast was first-class; fresh fruit, fresh made pastries, pumpkin pancakes with fruit topping, and delicious sausage. The service was warm and friendly.

Don't miss an opportunity to stay at Adobe Grand Villas if you go to Sedona! It's been 2 1/2 weeks and I still think about it every day.

My sister and I, and our husbands, recently stayed in Whispering Pines and Sedona Breeze. We all agreed that this was the most fantastic place that we have ever stayed. Ingrid, Kirsten, Mary, chefs Michael & Jacqueline, and all of the staff, went above and beyond to make our stay memorable.

You cannot imagine the size and exquisite décor of the rooms. The huge bathroom featured a two-person jetted tub, a fireplace, unique walk-in shower, double vanities, robes, music, and a lighted make-up mirror. The landscaping around the villas is reminiscent of a secret garden in a private and quiet setting.

We really enjoyed the breakfasts (we all considered them to be gourmet), as well as the complimentary coffee, tea, juices, snacks, and homemade cookies that were always available. We did quite a bit of sightseeing, including the Grand Canyon, so we did regret not spending more time at the villas.

If you are looking for an extremely private, comfortable, and unique place to stay, this is it. It is far superior to any B&B or inn that we have every stayed in. It is also suitable for young families because of the size of the rooms as well as the kitchenettes. You will love coming back to your room to take a Jacuzzi in front of the fireplace, while soft music is playing. We hope to return soon!

I wish I would have stayed more then one night. It was absolute perfection. The room was like none I had ever stayed in. There was fresh baking bread when we went to our room. The room had two fire places it own private terrace. They left snacks and drinks. The bathroom was stocked with aveda products. The bed was a dream to sleep on. The breakfast was absolutely delicious. It seriously was perfect. It was a bit expensive..but, well worth it. It is LOVELY! I went for a girls weekend. But, I will be going back for a romantic getaway. I can't imagine anyone could ever be disappointed with this place. It was perfect.

This boutique suites bed and breakfast was a perfect romantic get-away spot! My husband and I only stayed one night, but we wished it was a longer stay. The rooms are huge, with a dining area/kitchenette, sitting area with fireplace, beautiful bathroom with a fireplace by the Jacuzzi tub! The bed was also super comfortable! We stayed in the Sedona Breeze room- a cool southwest theme room- classy, not cheesy. The 3-course breakfast was also wonderful. We got a great deal on hotels.com, cheaper than reserving a room direct. We would also recommend an authentic Southwestern dinner at the silver saddle restaurant uptown- we had Elk (for the first time) and it was delicious! Great service too! We would also recommend the Javalina Leap Vinyard and Page Springs Vinyard- the wine tasting was really fun!

First, thank you ingrid for making our stay so wonderful!!
It did live up to all the positive praise, yeah! No expense spared when it comes to the diversity of the rooms and overall size- we stayed in The Tuscany suite, two fireplaces, two beds, and a huge floorplan.
The shower was a bit weak and the breakfast portion also felt a bit "jimmy dean sausage" like compared to both the cost of the stay and quality of all other aspects of the stay. Don't expect to be impressed by breakfast...

The fresh bread afternoon pasteries and complimentary snacks were very much appreciated and enjoyed.

We would have enjoyed more interaction with the other guests... I know strange idea, huh... There was no sense of community or belonging.
We've been all over the world and tend to stay at the higher end hotels and Adobe villas very much met our expectations! Our 18 month old felt right at home!
