The resort was nice but the weather was too hot (115-117) to enjoy anything outdoors. Even with mist in the shaded area by the pool it was too hot to sit outside and read a book. And the pool was very crowded with kids with very warm water. Even the "adult" area of the pool was loaded with kids.
So we found other things to do in the area that were indoors. The guys enjoyed the Air Museum and the gals enjoyed Dollville-Bearville. There were dolls that looked like real babies. We went to the latest Harry Potter movie. We found a very good coffee place - Koffi - has 2 locations. My son writes for a coffee magazine in Phoenix and rated the place very high. They have wonderful muffins and a "drip" bar which is hard to explain. We went on the Ariel Tram (a AAA automotive card gives you a discount) It was a little hazy but worth the trip, but if you are afraid of heights you should NOT ride the Tram. You stand up and the floor rotates as you ride to the top.
The rooms were very large with a well equipped kitchen. I'm glad we had a view of the mountains and not the pool. It was very quiet. We were not hassled regarding going to a time share meeting.
I would recommend this resort but NOT during the hot summer time. There are too many things you can't enjoy because of the heat.
