“Renovations”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This is our 4th stay at the Canyons. We knew they were going to be renovating the property. Three buildings were being worked on exterior and interior. We were so far down in building 3300 that we didn't hear any noise. The problem with being that far from the pool: we had to take our car. If it hadn't been 113 degrees we might have walked over. You can see pictures of what the villas will look like once it's all complete. It will only be worked on in low season which is the summer time. Three buildings at a time will be renovated. That should take 3 years. They still have events and fun projects for the kids.Went to their wine tasting...They also had Taco night, BBQ night and movie night. Staff is friendly and very helpful. They still have Happy hour...One disappointment was "The Asian Chicken salad" is no longer on the menu. Great taste and value..Also you could get towel exchange in mid week. That to is gone..I still recommend the Canyons. I love the location . Near Desert Ridge shopping and restaurants. Just hop on the 101 and you are in Scottsdale..Also head for Sedona for a day. It's about 1hr 45min. from the Canyons.

Room Tip: Try to get into either building 3000, 3100,3200 They will be renovated last and it"s quiet. Bui...

This is a very good stay for families. Large rooms with great amenities, complimentary shuttle services, and access to the nearby resort pools. Not a recommendation for single or couples stays. Much too noisy for a quiet stay. A request for a room change was not offered. I will spend my time elsewhere for relaxation.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet sleep, don't stay here. The best bet is away from the main building, 3100 or...

This is a nice place. I came for work for two nights and spent a half day at the pool. The room was strangely designed. Upon entering, there is no light switch located near the door. The bathroom door did not stay open. The room was okay, but nothing special. The pool and grounds were nice. Predictably, the pool was full of kids in the summer. There are better places to stay, although the price here was really reasonable.

Location is a bit off from the central areas. Beautiful grounds and spacious rooms. The villa that we stayed at has a full kitchen with top-notch appliances. Even though we stayed on the ground floor it was very quiet at night. The main pool is pretty good as well, though at peak times it could be difficult to find a beach chair. There is a separate pool for toddlers and small kids that is very good. Has many interesting and diverse activities to keep entire family happy. Access to J.W.'s pool, with slides and lazy river, a huge plus. Although make sure to call for availability, there are certain dates the access is not available for Villa guests. Would not hesitate to return again.

Beautiful hotel. This was our first trip to Arizona and the Canyon Villas was the perfect place to go. The staff was great and the property was wonderful. A big plus is access to the J.W. Marriott next door. We will definitely be back.

The Canyon Villas at Desert Ridge is an awesome place to vacation. The rooms are currently being updated, and the many pools and other activities on-site make this a very popular vacation spot! The Villas are close to a very popular shopping district with restaurants, shops, movie theater and bars.

This is the second year in a row we visited the property with our Grandson and loved every minute of it! We have been owners since 2004 and are looking forward to the upcoming updates to the Villas. It was crowded during the July 4th week, but all went well.
The events staff is outstanding and Scott at the front desk is always helpful.
