A great stay

Posted Apr 13, 2014
Pros: The pool area is lovely. The pool bar is nice with great drinks and food. Pool staff was very friendly and attentive.
Cons: We stayed in the 'casita' section. Our room was a bit small, but comfortable. The hallway area however was carpeted and smelled a bit musty.
Location: The resort grounds are beautiful, but in a mostly residential area. The ride from the airport is about 25 minutes.
We stayed at this resort for one night. Overall, we quite enjoyed it.

Family vacation located on 2 golf courses.

Posted Apr 9, 2014
Pros: We enjoyed the atmosphere, friendly staff and availability of nearby golf. Nice pool area with lots of flowers, shade and tables.
Cons: Our biggest complaint would have to be the food quality. It was average. Both restaurants and room service use the same kitchen and chef staff.
Location: Old Town Scottsdale 15 min away by car. Lots of restaurants with 10 min drive. Try Blanco for Mexican or Oreganos for pizza/Italian.
Hotel is on two golf courses at McCormick Ranch. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The drive in at night is spectacular with all the lit trees.The main pool area had a good amount of deck chairs (slightly harder to get on weekends), lots of towels and pool was clean. There is a bar area poolside for drinks or to order food from room service. On weekends, there was a cookout.Atmosphere at pool was family friendly and music was nice. Our two connecting rooms were comfortable and spacious, looking over the golf course. The lobby staff, bell staff and valet were friendly. Maid service was average with communication a small problem. The newly renovated workout room is fantastic, contains lots of equipment. There is fruit to snack on after your workout, which is a nice touch. The tennis courts are in great shape. There are bikes to borrow if you want. The workout room can provide raquets, bikes, helmets. The spa is worth a visit and prices are reasonable. We enjoyed the golf. The Pro shop is an easy walk or the bell staff will take you over in a van anytime. The restaurant at the golf course was very good at lunch. There are also multiple other local golf courses nearby.We ate at the main dining room, the pool bar and had room service a few times. The room service was prompt and the servers very friendly.However, we did not enjoy the food at the hotel.It would be a reason not to go back. We went out to eat because of that.

Nicely secluded.

Nice place to get away. The casita area provided a little secluded feeling.

Great staycation!

Posted Apr 7, 2014
Staff was friendly and attentive, asked questions specific to their job function. Ex. Valet asked if we needed any maps or directions to any places. Royal Palm restaurant was amazing, food and staff was excellent. They played guitar and took song requests. Relaxing massage! Room service was friendly and prompt. House keeping prompt. Pool bar area was great, kept our drinks coming! Overall great experience. Everyone smiles and enthusiastic. Keep it up!

Recreation and conference ?

Posted Apr 7, 2014
Pros: Friendly staff, cleaness, entire ambient
Cons: I did book the hotel for a certain rate. Why I'm confronted with additional fees for standard features like w-lan ??
Location: Definitely Sedona and Tucson, beside of the outlet mal in Antheim
This resort and its hotel certainly is excellent for all kinds of recreation. The only "concern" I have is how to seperate people who show up regularily for conferences or weddings - highly dressed up - from others in shorts and sometimes even barfooted. However, eventually also all those people found the place at the pool which was most of the time crowded.

Nice hotel for conferences and large groups

Posted Apr 7, 2014
Pros: Pool area, golf course
Cons: The beds weren't the most comfortable.
Location: Great location…beautiful golf course. Within short driving distance of shopping, restaurants, etc.
This is a nice hotel, especially if you are part of a large group or conference. It has a nice pool area and pool side bar, as well as a couple restaurants on site. We really liked being able to take the free bike cruisers around the golf course and neighborhood that comes as part of your package when staying here. It was really busy, so if you're looking for something more private, this probably wouldn't be the best. But overall, we enjoyed our stay.

Would DEFINITELY stay here again!

Posted Apr 7, 2014
Pros: The hotel itself looked so nice, the grounds, the entrance, the lobby, the pool, the plush towels, the work out room, tennis courts, everything!- the
Cons: I hate to say anything, because we were very happy- the only tiny inconveinance, was that one day, our room did not get cleaned until 5 PM.
Location: Talking Stick, Camel back, walking paths, Pinnacle Peak was a short drive,.....
would definitely stay here again- I am extremely picky about hotel cleaniness, and I was pleasantly surprised with how nice our room was. We had a room with 2 queen beds, and the room set up worked well for a family of 4. The location worked well for us.

Pleasantly not disappointed

Posted Apr 1, 2014
We went into this with low expectations given the price, but found ourselves with few complaints. Sure, the restaurant overcooked my eggs one morning and the drinks from the pool bar were kind of gross. No, the hotel is not particularly close to "downtown" Scottsdale compared to some other resorts and definitely has more of a suburban feel. And we could not believe that we traveled thousands of miles from the polar vorticies of Chicago only to find that there was not a single cactus planted on the property. For shame. . . . But those picayune critiques aside, this was a good value. Our room was spacious, comfortable, and clean. The free wi-fi worked better than my wi-fi at home. We ate most of our meals downtown anyway, and they were great (strongly recommend The Mission or Cowboy Ciao). The pool was fine and, most importantly, it got plenty of sun. The desk and valet staff were generally friendly and helpful. Self-parking was fairly accessible and given that Scottsdale is so car friendly, we didn't mind driving downtown and back. In sum, I'm sure there are nicer places to stay in Scottsdale, but if you're looking for an affordable place to spend the night or lounge by the pool when you're not out enjoying the town, this place does the trick.

The Scottsdale Resort

Posted Apr 1, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: The bathroom vanity/faucet quite old.
Location: Shopping/restaurants
Old hotel, food, drink quite expensive at this hotel, the resort is rated as a 4 star hotel, it should not be rated more than 3 star. and quite expensive, we were charge $330/night, is not worth that much at all. For sure I don't try this hotel again.
