“Great little resort with the best BBQ and a dog that goes deep.”
Reviewed 16 December 2005

Ok this place rules! If you like big hotels with long halls and a cold staff the Smoke Tree Resort is not for you. My housband and I travel to Arizona each year for spring training baseball. This past year we decided to try a smaller "classic" resort. We found it at the Smoke Tree. The owners live on the resort, actually they live in the office. From the start they were so helpfull. There is a somewhat famous dog on the property, Miss "Belle" Jet Ranger, she can swim down to the bottom of the resorts pool to fetch a toy. We were told there is a large group of travelers from Asia and Europe that stay at the resort just to see the dog. The resort has about 25 rooms. Each room has a kitchen and large patio. On the first day of our stay there was a fully hosted cocktail party for all of the guests that frequent the resort, since we were the only "new" guests, we to were invited. Wow! what a nice group of people, Its no wonder that people come from so far to stay there. The owner, I think his name was "Sonny" also happens to be an award winning BBQ pitmaster. He served some of his brisket and pork butt. Great party!
You know this resort is very quaint and like a small oasis in the desert. The rooms are a little old, however, the staff and grounds make up for any issues with the rooms. This place is a must if you visit Scottsdale. We were told that a Ritz Carlton was going to be built across the street. My husband and I look forward to returning to the Smoke Tree Resort next year. This time we plan on staying a month or longer. Hopefully the dog will still be swimming and Sonny will cook up some tasty butt.
