The main reason we chose Arizona Grand was for the water park. We weren't impressed. The place needs to be refurbished badly. No cool deck anywhere, so you can't walk around with your sandals off or your feet burn. The lazy river is more like a lazy stream. Very narrow and you bump into everyone or the tubes. The waterslides are okay, at best. The worst part is you can't bring any food or drink into the water park and they charge an arm and a leg for everything. $20 for two tap beers and a diet coke. If you want to go to a water park, save your money and go to Golfland Sunsplash or one of the other water parks in the Phoenix area. More bang for your buck. In fact, we talked to several people checking out stating they were heading to a different water park because this wasn't good.
As far as the hotel/resort area, it needs refurbishing too. Old, out of date and tiresome. On a good note, the room was clean and roomy. We didn't eat here because we figured since the water park food was overpriced, the restaurants would be overpriced. I don't mind paying the extra money for a nice, modern resort with decent amenities. Sadly, Arizona Grand did not fit the bill. We won't be returning.
