We stayed in a standard 1 ...

We stayed in a standard 1 bedroom suite which included a huge living area. We were far away from the expansion construction which we only saw because we wanted to drive the property. There are several onsite reseaturants and many more options close by. We highly recommend US Egg for breakfast. If this hotel was closer to Scottsdale it wourl be prefect. We love Scottsdale and recommend that as a place to explore, have dinner (Saddle Ranch - two thumps ups), and go dancing. Too bad the golf course was closed for overseeding. However, there were dozens of alternatives in the area. The service was very good. Nothing compared to Asia (especially the Philippines) but very good fo US standards.

EXCELLENT

GREAT STAFF!!!! The only complaint I had was the water slide issue...my grand daughter was an inch short and was not allowed to use the slides but yet there were other kids that were the same height and they were allowed to use the slides,we stood there and watched that happen a few times......otherwise it was a great place, ALOT of fun!

family friendly

This property is really family friendly...only I was looking for a location nearer nightlife and outside dining. It's great for families, but a weekend with my sisters would've been more suited to a location in Scottsdale. But next time, I'll bring the kids.

Very Nice Resort

This is a very nice resort and the service was very good. The room was very clean and comfortable. I stayed there for a conference and did not have a chance to take advantage of the waterpark (which looked extremely fun)or the exercise room, so I wasn't wild about the mandatory $30/day resort fee that covers these activities. As an aside, the conference facilities were also very nice and well run. I would definately recommend and return.

Top of the Line Comfort

The suites were very roomy, well-decorated and CLEAN. Although the TV's could use a little update (i.e. larger flat screens would have been nice), at least there were two in each suite. The choice of several swimming pools was a big plus and because my mother could not walk very far, we chose the one right downstairs from our rooms. It was well, maitained and also had a hot tub. After the graduation ceremonies at ASU, we came back to the hotel for a delicious lunch at the Sports Bar / Restaurant. The food was excellent and the ambiance even nice. (We ate a 2nd lunch there two days later. The Concierge Desk was extremely helpful in helping us make dinner choices. They even made online reservations or phone calls for us and printed out driving directions for us. Overall, I rate this as an extremely wonderful place for a family stay, a business conference or just a nice, upscale getaway.

Fun family experience

This is a fun place to stay with kids. The water park is included with the room and is fun! There are also pools interspersed throughout the resort, so you can find one that's not crowded. Big rooms.

"Stay-cation"

We are from Tucson with 2 boys (Ages 2 and 3), looking for some family fun. We sure had a blast and plan on returning really soon. It was perfect for our young boys as well. we loved the kiddy pool too! The amenities were great and the rooms refreshing. The workout gym was great as well.
