Ok, first let me preface this by saying, I'm usually more of La Quinta type hotel person, so I can be somewhat easily impressed. With that disclaimer, when I arrived at the lobby,I was impressed!
Beautiful lobby that overlooks the pools, golf course, and mountains. It's also off the beaten track but still reasonably close to the big city.
Ok, so let me break this down simply to the old reliable pros and cons.
-Beautiful grounds, desert landscaping.
-pools and water slide. There are about four different pools, Jacuzzi, and water slide for the kids. For us, the pools were the highlight.
-Service at the pools was excellent.
-the rooms are very nicely decorated, upscale, and high end mattresses that were very comfortable.
-the pool area stays open till 11:00pm! So many close too early.
-Number 1 con, price. Even with the summer discount your looking at about $230 a night! And it has what they all seem to have now, the Resort fee. So stupid! Somehow this fee allows them to list a lower price, but then add more to that price, and it'snot optional!
-Distances. This resort is large and spread out. If you don't like to walk, either request a room near the lobby or don't stay here. It's a pretty good hike from a lot of the rooms.
So in conclusion, if you're looking for a nice resort that feels secluded but you don't want to drive to distant locations, this is perfect. The price per night was a bit high for me, I hate to think what the rate is during the winter or spring.
