We've just returned from our first stay at the Westward Look and I'm already planning a return visit as soon as possible. Our youngest son goes to school in Tucson and we've spent a lot of time looking for a place to call home when we visit him. We've finally found it. Everything from the friendly, helpful staff to the comfortable room and beautiful grounds made for a pleasant, relaxing trip.
Check-in was quick, all my questions were answered and after a short drive through the grounds we arrived at our building which housed 6 suites. The "buildings" look like spanish houses with stucco and wood beams. Our room (suite) was large, nicely appointed and very clean . It's not "cookie cutter" hotel decor, particularly in the bathroom and dressing areas which are huge. No tripping over each other when changing clothes and plenty of closet and drawer space for everyone. The tile in the bathroom is older but appears to be hand painted which was charming and not found in chain hotels. Big, big, towels which were soft, absorbent and best of all, plentiful. I really liked the skylight in the bathroom as it let in tons of natural light. Other hotels focus on bed and linen quality in their advertising and our bed at the Westward was on par or better, providing a restful night's sleep. The sheets were soft and the mattress was extremely comfortable. Can't figure out why there were some negative reviews about the t.v. placement. We watched from the couch, table and bed and no one had any trouble seeing t.v. Noise from other rooms was never a factor during our stay even though all 6 rooms in our building were occupied. During our walks and while sitting on the balcony the bushes and trees provided natural sound barriers and the fountains placed throughout the resort were a pleasant surprise.
Our spa experience was excellent. I was able to book an afternoon massage that same morning; something you may not be able to do during busier times of the year. One reviewer questioned why the resort called this a "spa" as there is no steam room or sauna. I can't think of a day spa I've been to that has either of these items and the lack of both did not detract from our experience in any way. Maybe they were looking for a gym.
If you enjoy nature you will be very happy. Leafy trees, blooming catcus and gorgeous flowering bushes are everywhere. The grounds are well tended and the lighting at night was more than adequate but unobtrusive. Be sure to take advantage of the resort's two trails which are well marked and provide many opportunities to see ground squirrels, chipmunks and road runners (along with the birds, butterflies, etc.). Kids will have a great time.
The excitement of traveling comes with experiencing new places and being open to everything a location has to offer. I'm so glad we found the Westward Look.
