WorldMark is Wyndham's vacation club property brand. We got access through a vacation club membership sharing arrangement. The good thing about WorldMark Phoenix is its in a warm area in winter - a real plus and it's very reasonable from an access and price perspective. It has some of the basics - swimming pools, hot tub, a splash area for...

After being in the rainy cold winter in Washington State, we were really looking forward to our visit to Worldmark Phoenix, South Mountain Reserve. We were not disappointed. The view from our deck was of the desert landscape and trails behind the resort. We had a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom on the 2nd Floor. The unit even included a one...

great place to stay, I booked this hotel because of the desert walking track, had never been to a desert before so was so nice being able to explore the desert just outside the hotel room. Lovely inside the hotel with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, even had a garage to put your car and a washing machine with free...

We have been here (2) times & it's great! Close to several golf courses & fwy.... staff are friendly! The units have a garage which is a plus!! Full kitchen & gas fireplace are a nice addition. I would recommend this facility-there are walking paths close by & a water park close for the kids.

We had a 3 bedroom unit with 6 people. Worked out great. 2nd visit, better condition with Worldmark managing. Trails on South Mountain right adjacent to property. Not the newest property, but clean and comfortable. Condo, not resort. Couple hot tubs and pools. We found location excellent with access to baseline road for golf and restaurants. Nice outlet mall and...

We stayed here several years ago when Raintree owned the property and decided to return this year for fall ball? The interior, if indeed updated, has missed the mark. Very plain and drab appearance. We originally had a unit on 2nd floor assigned but I called about early check in and learned there are no elevators. We managed to get...

If you are planning to go spend more than a few days in the Phoenix area, I highly recommend the WorldMark South Mountain Resort. It is located right on the edge of the 16,000 acre South Mountain Preserve, which would normally be enough to get 5 stars. But this condo rental resort is just spectacular! The units are just wonderful,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It is nearly impossible for anyone who is in any way sensitive to the beauty and grandeur of nature to stand in this special place and not feel the power that the Pimas refer to as the strong medicine of the South Mountain Preserve. Here, we have rediscovered a special place to share with our owners and guests. This is truly a place of deep relaxation and natural beauty. A place gently cradled in the largest regional wilderness park preserve in the country which covers over 50 square miles of pristine Sonoran desert. Surrounded by unspoiled panoramas and teeming with a stunning variety of wildlife that belongs to this desert community, it is seemingly a remote retreat, minutes from downtown Phoenix. ... more   less
