“Great location with all the comforts of home”
Reviewed 12 June 2013 via mobile

The studio unit can easily sleep four, but everyone will share one bathroom. The kitchen is well-equipped, including dish soap and a full-sized dishwasher. We enjoyed the pool area and the poolside Grille restaurant and bar. Don't miss the $2 tacos (on Tuesdays and Wednesday when we were there.) We stayed a week, but could have easily stayed longer.

We have stayed at the Scottsdale Camelback Resort for 2-3 weeks periods for the past 10 years. Needless to say - we enjoy staying at the resort while in Arizona. The resort curb appeal is excellent, rooms are a good size with updated furnishing. The units are well equipped with the necessary cooking utensils. The pool, hot tub and poolside area is excellent - a good size and well kept. Of particular benefit is the poolside bar/cafe area. This provides a nice and relaxing environment. The staff are extremely helpful and very friendly. They will go out of their way to meet your needs. The fitness centre could have some updated and additional equipment. We will return for another visit.

Positives ....Very nice rooms with all the comforts of home including a washer/dryer! Pool area was great, with lots of chairs, salt water pool was a very nice temperature.. Nice grounds & tennis courts. Most of the staff were helpful, friendly & polite. Resort in walking distance to the Cholla trail for any hikers. The breakfast included was excellent.

Having a car is an advantage as it is a ways from any grocery stores.

Negatives .... a resort fee for Wi-Fi & they have a 10 a.m. checkout .... ???? either of those are nearly unheard of anywhere. One of the reasons we chose this resort was for tennis yet all 3 courts were booked for private lessons Sat & Sun (7- 10) & cleaning on Mon. from 7 - 10 a.m. That made 3 days in a row that courts were not available to guests in prime time. If you wanted to play in 95 degree heat, the rest of the day was open.

The resort needs a make over but is not in need of repairs. Still shows very well. Rooms are modern and comfortable, just dated. Nice sound system and flat screen TV's. Resort offers racquetball court, tennis courts, pool, movie theatre , restaurant, business centre, walking path,mini golf,putting greens, croquet , horeshoes. It is walkable to the mall but it was 100+ and was a little uncomfortable. They held a Monday morning q&a with tour vendors which was informative. The lady concierge was very helpful. had no issues getting taxi's as we did not have a car. It was a short drive to the airport. All appliance worked and in good repair.
Would definitely come back to further explore the area.

Room Tip: we stayed in b34 and it faced the walking paths ,croquet area. Very quiet and had picnic type table...

I arrived at this resort expecting the same old, ho hum room. I was sadly mistaken. I rented the studio for a quick get away by myself and the place was amazing. The studio was the size of a one bedroom apartment with all the comforts of home. Wifi, MP3 dock, flatscreen, kitchen and washer and dryer. I was especially impressed with the walkout balcony overlooking the pool area. Lots of room up there and a view of the little party going on over at the pool. The restaurant staff at the pool grille, were very accomodating and were eager to please. The front desk staff were pleasant and fun to talk to as well.. I have always looked for a resort like this, when I travel to Phoenix, from Minnesota, but for some reason, I either did not see this one, or thought maybe the price might have been out of my range. Either way,the price and value of the room are very reasonable, and I plan on making this little gem my getaway, hideaway in the future. Very confortable and relaxing

I can't say enough about this place! We loved our 2 bedroom unit - it was HUGE! Every afternoon after our morning touring or activities, we headed to the pool. We were always able to find chairs and swim without knocking elbows. It was a very friendly place. We enjoyed pool V-ball and when we got hungry, the mini burgers and prickly pear margaritas were super! They have daily 1/2 price on certain drinks from 3-6, so we took advantage of that every day. There were lots of other activities that were available - 2 tennis courts, a small mini golf course, and my childhood favorite, croquet. They also had 'duckie' chess set up in the lobby which we had fun playing as well. They also had a sand v-ball court, grills in several spots and a nice path with labels cactuses. We loved having a kitchen and laundry in our unit. We ate breakfast every morning on our porch in the beautiful weather. We loved it. It wasn't too big and not too small

There are so many fun things to do closeby as well. We took a drive out to the Superstition Mountains and hiked at the state park there. We continued on to Tortilla Flats - scenery not to be missed. Tortilla Flats was packed with a band playing and a large restaurant. I'd highly recommend it - I believe it took about :30 to get to Superstition Mtns. and then another :30? to Tortilla Flats. We also hiked Camelback - I'd recommend walking from the hotel. We drove to park near the entrance, but it was so busy that it wouldn't have been much longer to just walk from the hotel. The zoo and the botanical gardens are only about 10 minutes away. So, you can't go wrong with the location!
