Fun place for families

My 6 year old daughter & I had a great time. Yes the tv's are old but the rest of our suite was great. We stayed in the Sedona suites which was a great location for us. Close to water park and not too far from the lobby. First day at water park we ate at the water park. Yuck. Sub par food. So each day after we went to the lobby grill and enjoyed the view of the golf course while dining outiside. Stay away from aunt chilada's...gross. But if you go for just chips and margaretisa that would be good. The gelato in the lobby gift shop is great. Also check out rustler roose...super fun place!

water park nice, rest is only so-so

Water park is good if you have young children. Didn't like that my pocketbook was searched as I entered the pool to see if I was bringing in outside food. Food/drinks at pool are pricey. Room was never cleaned after 1st night. Had to call twice for towels. Also had to call twice for blankets and pillows for pull out sofa. Bedding has nice comforters/sheets, but mattresses underneath are horrible. Bathroom is so tiny you can barely get in and get the door closed. Called the spa on at least 6 occasions to schedule facial and never got an answer. Workout area and locker rooms are nice. Driving range is very weak. Low flight plastic balls are a waste of time and area is not well maintained. Would not stay at this hotel again unless I was with young children that would enjoy the water park.

$$

After you book with an online company, you have to pay a daily deposit of 30 dollars to use the water park, thats only open saturday and sunday, and the athletic club. this deposit should be based on usage. also they charge 15 a day for internet. common, even the travel lodge gives free internet!

Birthday trip

This was a great place to stay. The staff was friendly and helpful..the grounds were so beautiful and well kept...the water park was super fun and the entertainment was terrific...the a/c in our room kept us really cool in the 108 degree weather which we weren't used to. We really couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay.

Outstanding Family Vacation

The resort was exactly what we needed for the family vacation. We had 2 small children ages 3 and 1, having the water park was what the kids really needed. They loved being in the water most of the day. We also enjoyed the food.

Childrens Museum in downtown Phoenix was really enjoyable for the children. Cost was a little high $11.00 per person but if you go early and make a day of it will be worth it.

Very Nice Place! Fun for the family

We love the Oasis Water Park but got rather busy and extremely crowedl. We spent a lot of time at the water park. I think it was so full of people that it got quite dirty and smelled. The price of food is very expensive. We rented a car and went to some other restaurants in the area.

Fantastic place for families

The trip was a graduation gift for our 17 year old granddaughter. She brought her two sisters, ages 15 and 10, with her and her 7 year old cousin. All the kids had a great time and found plenty of age-appropriate activities. The hotel is wonderful in what it provides to accommodate all ages. We had two adjoining suites, which was perfect. The beds are comfortable and with the front room living area, everyone had plenty of room for a nice enjoyable eveninig after time in the sun. The only downside we experienced was the movie in the pool experience. We have stayed at several hotels in the area, like the Fairmont Princess, that have movies in the pool. It is generally a fun time and part of the price you are paying while you are there. However, the Arizona Grand charges a $9 fee per person to watch the movie. We thought this was a little cheap of the hotel, given the cost we were already paying. Otherwise, it was a very nice week.
