The staff and amenities were outstanding. I was impressed with the kindness, promptness and professionalism displayed here! It was disappointing that the spa and fitness center were closed as well as some restaurants. But overall it was a lovely place to stay!

Not kid friendly at all. If you want kids to be accompanied by a parent there needs to be a separate hotel entrance versus a casino entrance. Also the pool service was super slow. Hire more staff to serve the amount of people at the pool...hour wait, won’t stay here again and will advise others to not as well.

We booked a room and requested 2 queen beds. They gave us one king for 3 people. When we asked to change rooms the front desk staff was unapologetic and rude and offered a roll away at $25 a night. The services at other areas of the resort was good but the front desk staff that checked us in was frustratingly rude.

lovely resort. the Orange Sky was not open yet and that was a huge disappointment. We did eat at Tash but it had a limited menu in our opinion but good food and nice setting. The Ocean Trail food was so-so and and we had to find a place to go eat our food -- I realize much is caused by the pandemic and mandates. Staff was helpful and courteous.

The hotel and casino were very clean. The golf course is way over played and the range is in poor conditions. There is almost no grass to hit off of. The carts were filthy each morning with tees, wrappers and trash inside. The golf courses are in fair to poor conditions. Way to much play and to many brown spots or disease on greens, fairways and tee boxes. Management did not seem to care when we complained. Also, children were allowed to play during mid day that had not experience on the course. This was a disappointing experience.

Although the buffet wasn't open and their seafood joint was "to go" only the gaming area was easy to navigate, lots of people were winning. The pool area was very nice with games like jenga and corn hole. The pool itself was wonderful, nice and warm, good amount of lounge chairs. If you spent $150 on food and drinks you got specialty seating or you could rent a cabana.

Have stayed twice now and each time has been wonderful. Rooms are spacious and clean! Love the golf courses and casino on site. Everything you need is right there! Would definitely recommend staying there!

Enjoyed our stay Rooms were good staff was helpful

I always stay hear, great place with casino. Can’t beat it

Nice property, got a free upgrade to C2 with free morning snack and happy hour

Multiple restaurants Free parking Friendly staff Very reasonably price for luxury accommodations

This was our first stay but definitely will not be our last! This hotel & casino was awesome...from the check in ..housekeeping..room service..casino area...clean clean clean..comfy beds..very thorough on the sanitizing..they have it figured out! We felt very confident in their protocol during this pandemic. Congrats to this resort for taking things seriously and keeping their customers safe!!

Talking Sticks is one of my favorite hotel resorts in Arizona. With the Covid 19 outbreak it was nice to see how clean the resort was.

Thank you for completing a review - and especially for the additional comments about the cleanliness! Unfortunately, the golf course is an entirely separate entity from the resort - but I did forward your comments over to their GM for him to review! Robb McCreary, Hotel Director
