Just vacationed with my wife for 5 days.
Highlights: Wonderful setting. Wonderful, personalized service from polite and accommodating staff from the moment we set foot on the property. 9 out of 10 staff members we encountered went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The spa pool is salt water (while the main pools are chlorinated) and was not crowded on any of the days we went. A guided hike of the canyon behind the resort is a MUST. You really get to connect with the setting of the resort and learn about plant and animal life. You also get some great views and photo opportunities just minutes from the resort's step! Be sure to ask for Ranger Ron.
Downsides: The resort is isolated from other activities by at least a 15-30 minute drive, other than the golf course, which is right down the road. Also, almost every meal eaten on site was underwhelming. We tried 3 of the 4 restaurants and were a bit disappointed each time. Don't get me wrong- the food was good, the portions were ample, and every staff member provided prompt, cordial service, BUT the quality of the food did not meet the expectations set by the rest of the experience.
