Girls Weekend - Just fine

Went away with a girlfriend and this hotel was just fine... More like an Embassy Suites without a free happy hour. The room was okay, clean but nothing fancy. We didn't spend much time in the room so that was okay. The location next to the open space was fantastic. super easy for the early morning hike. We did end up driving to Scottsdale every day so maybe a location further west would be ideal. Facilities were clean but a little run down. I would stay here again but maybe price check the embassy suites.

Arizona Grand Resort

I was nowhere near impressed by the hotel. While the grounds and buildings are lovely, fountains and streams everywhere, there is a fee for everything except the bed and the pool in the complex. You cannot use the water park without paying a large fee. In addition you get socked with a $35/day resort fee. I think they charged us 3 fees for 2 days. And there was an infestation of tiny bugs in our room. The weather was glorious. Nice place, but I wouldn't ever go back. It is simply not worth the money.

Fun hotel

Decor a bit tired and some long lines at the coffee restaurant (and a stale bagel). Overall, nice facilities though. Does need some renovating.

Insight Bowl Trip

Misc charges of $30 per day was unfortunate...too cold to swim, only 1 newspaper delivered, did not use the spa, etc. pretty much a rip off for extras that we did not need. Hotel restaurant/bar service was suspect and slow. Rooms were very good...overall a very nice trip.

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.

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!
