Los Abrigados Resort and Spa
Ranked #43 of 49 Hotels in Sedona
Reviewed 8 October 2009

We are already talking about returning to Los Abrigados. We exchanged a timeshare week and never even got to play the onsite miniature golf course, bocci ball or even stroll the famous Tlaquepaque center next door! There is so much to do in the surrounding areas, we actually ran out of time.

We are not the type of family to hunker down into our room, so we found the accommodations more than adequate for our needs. The onsite restaurant offered tasty dishes and was reasonably priced with such large portions, we were actually able to create a couple of extra meals utilizing the half kitchen. We didn't mind the decor, as the colors were retro, but the furnishings were not old or worn by any means.

Although there was quite a bit of landscaping being done at the time, my family enjoyed the grounds. The purposefully rambling walkways prompt a more relaxed attitude. Once all the fountains are installed, it should be very pleasant.

Our excursions included a day hike to view Cathedral Rock from the river followed by an afternoon at Slide Rock. Our two elementary school-aged kids loved sloshing and sliding and finding fish hiding in the crevices (Be sure to wear aqua socks as the moss on the rocks are very slippery. Goggles also help find the fish). One morning, we drove out to Meteor Crater just east of Flagstaff and followed it up with the gorgeous Walnut Canyon hike, where you can actually walk into ancient Indian cliff dwellings. That was a great day, filled with history, wonder and exercise (my personal favorite)! Another morning, we took the "Sedona ATV" off-road tour, which the kids loved. We rented 2 ATVs with the kids as passengers. The ride was 30 miles with sweeping vistas and candy bar snacks! You know it's a good day when everyone is covered in dirt and ready to jump in the pool.

One day, we paid for the day-long Hopi Mesa tour booked through Los Abrigados. The concierge was extremely helpful and got us a discount. It is not inexpensive, but it was a day to remember. You can tour the mesas on your own, but you will have to drive for hours and will not gain access to the restricted area on the Third Mesa, which was the highlight. The tour guide (I can't remember the tour company), Brian, is a Navajo with teaching experience who filled our day with history, anecdotes and the similarities and differences of Navajo and Hopi culture. No photos can be taken any more on the mesas (out of respect for the people), but I later went online for historical photos to put in our scrapbook. The tour included lunch at the Hopi Cultural Center restaurant on the Second Mesa where the kids ordered chicken strips and my husband and I had authentic Hopi lamb stew and Navajo tacos. Delicious. It was a bit awkward always being introduced to craftspeople selling their wares, as it is difficult to pace yourself buying souvenirs. Since we are not big on buying Indian pottery and kachinas, I did not appreciate the deals that could have been made on the tour until we returned to full-price retail shops in Sedona. If you are an Indian art collector, you should take this tour and plenty of cash. You can haggle, if you have the heart. I, however, could not once I saw the daily living conditions of this proud people. A true life experience.

For the kids, the highlight of the trip was Out of Africa. Only half an hour south of Sedona, it was really fun, despite the heat of August. Feeding camels and giraffes "cookies," petting boa constrictors, riding a camel, watching tigers pop pool toys, escorting the feeding crew in the afternoon and getting the best unobstructed views of large predators was a thrill. And, the best part was, when we drove to Arizona from California, the Carl's Jr. in Quartzsite had a coupon for $10 off each admission for two people. What a deal! Even the hotel concierge was impressed when she tried to hand us a $2 off.

Next time we go to Sedona, we will endeavor to spend more time relaxing, maybe even fishing, if possible. Maybe drive to historic Jerome or see the volcanic crater and Indian dwellings north of Flagstaff. But we will have to return to Slide Rock for the kids. Los Abrigados is a good "home base" for all these activities.

contrary to past beliefs,we were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and and location of this resort.The room we had was a one bedroom which was recently painted and new furnishings,but the old dated wood headboard was still in bedroom with a very comfortable mattress,we joked about this old headboard at the pool but it was extremely function able, as an extra pillow made easy reading,holds your wine,book,glass,and of course your remote for H-D 32 TV.housekeeping arrived every day made life really enjoyable,we had a great girl who went above and beyond to make our stay memorable.everyone that we had contact with in resort answered all questions and directed us to great locations to buy food,souvenirs,and excursions. The resort is walking distance to uptown for shopping and restaurants,close to everything but yet quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The timeshare reps respected us when we said not interested and still got 10% off all resort purchases(,no presentation unless you want to.)The red rocks and all the sights to see can not be put into words,you just have to go and see for yourself,we went to Grand Canyon with Redstone tours and it was very informative saw a lot learned a lot,found them through the concierge at the resort,well worth the time leave car at the resort and both able to enjoy the scenery ,If you are looking for a night life in Sedona,they seem to go to sleep around 9:00,as most kitchens closed between8:30 and 10:00, so we enjoyed the hot tub with a glas of wine,relaxed and reminisced about daytime adventures and hikes. Definitely will be going back to see what we could not see in a week .Joey's Bistro on the resort property is excellent taste and lots to eat(need a big appetite)barbecues are placed through out the property to be used and are kept clean we used a couple of times and it made your supper so much more like home,on this note get your food from Safeway,get your client card there and save lots on everything,make sure you check out the butcher as he is quiet the character and will help in your supper meat needs .

After reading multiple BAD reviews about the Los Abrigados Resort and Spa - I was very concerned about our selection. However...we found it to be very nice. The staff was great - responsive and friendly. The concierge went out of her way to help us find tickets to a special event... and arrange other tours.

The furnishings were dated but not worn. Everything was very clean... and the kitchenette had new appliances.

Overall we were pleasantly surprised! We'd stay there again. It is conveniently located next to Tlaquepaque (shopping village, art galleries and restaurants). Mia's Place - their bird sanctuary is absolutely beautiful. Even if you don't stay there - you should check out the grounds during your visit to Sedona.

The resort "lost" its hot water on 8/7 in the morning. We checked in that afternoon and were not informed. We had to discover that on our own. Though they were dilligent about trying to fix the problem, they were NEGLIGENT about communicating with guests. We got a form letter on the 11th. We were among the few who had their hot water restored by the 4th day, but still...

Not only did they not communicate with us, they offered no "comps" at all! I was infuriated by how they handled the whole situation relative to their guests. I seriously doubt if we'll ever go back, even though we are timeshare owners there.

We had a good time at this resort. It was walking distance, for me, to the main shopping area and had a nice little mall attached. I was happy with my unit and loved the little kitchenette. The only problems were that there was construction on the main street leading to the resort and the parking was very tight at times. The unit was nice, a bit small for two adult and two teens but manageable. We didn't use the pool, too cool outside for us, but I did enjoy the free internet in the lobby. I was particularly impressed by the gym. Very good because of the Spa. Usually you would have to pay a fee for such a well equipped gym at a resort. Yes I did see a cockroach or two but the maid cleaned the unit and I guess you just get them in that area.

OMG people please read the several reviews that are printed. We got into the room, looked around it was ok. Then it all begins, we killed a roach as it crossed the floor, We turned on the bathtub outside and as i am sitting and the jets come on, roach's came out of the jets and surrounding us as we sit there in the bath tub out side suite- we jump out screaming, as we were sitting there freaking out trying to rinse the roaches out- there were more coming in on the porch. We left the light on and they were flying in to the porch, we turn it off they were still coming in. As we were watching all this we heard screams from the room next to use sighting roaches were in there!! then as we walked around the property we again were walking over roaches. When we check in there were no real concerns of the emplyees of other peoples issues, never the less we did order dinner in and when another roach walk by, we stop eating, left the bottle of wine and the 130.00 dinner and we called the front desk and check out. So we stayed appx 4 hours and paid 300.00 for it. When i check my account they had over charged the room at 550.00 (Kris did correct all the over charges) and plus additonal charges. When i did call the resort, i got ahold of Kris who was so nice and helpful and agreed there is a roach problem at this time and wished we would have complain more before checking out the same night . I told her as far as we witness there were no other options for rooms that they all seemed to be invested. She did credit me a 75.00 fee, but again, driving an hour home at 10 o'clock at night was not how we had hope to spend our 5th anniversary. Oh well, no we will not be back and or refer this location as a stopping place. Be sure to take some RAID with you- your gonna need it!!

i was invited here for a timeshare presentation so we stayed for a cheap rate and thank god for that. if we had to pay the going rate, i would've checked out early.

THE GOOD:
the resort is in an excellent location, basically connected to Tlaquepaque, so it is very central and close to everything. the grounds are well kept and the lobby and its staff are nice. the on-site restaurants are decent and the bath products are exceptional.

THE BAD:
like most reviews have noted, the hotel's rooms need an update ASAP. the giant wooden headboard reminded me of a bad 70s basement to go along with the ugly pattern on the drapes and couch. the carpet in the bedrooms was so gross that i wore my flip flops in the suite the whole time. the tile floors in the kitchen/living area were wiped down with some kind of sticky wax that made my feet turn black so again, i never once took off my shoes. when we got there, the fridge was warm so i cranked the temp up to "MAX." after dinner we did some light grocery shopping for the suite and were surprised to learn that our fridge was still warm. someone came by to check it out but he launched into a spiel that i'm sure he's had to repeat everyday about how the fridge is not a real refrigerator, it's an "energy saving cooler." basically it's like one of those red playmate coolers you take to a football game. the freezer works but there are two small holes for the cold air to travel into the fridge compartment to keep your food cold. we even shoved the ice bucket in there to help keep our new groceries cool but again, it's not a fridge so DON'T BUY REAL FOOD TO STORE IN THE FRIDGE BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH IT LOOKS LIKE ONE IT IS NOT A REFRIGERATOR. and to conclude our spectacular first day, a 2" black roach ran across the kitchen floor. i have a photo of my deceased roach roommate but chose not to post it on this website.

THE TIMESHARE MEETING:
i will say that the sales people were nice but they stole 2.5 hours of my life that i now want back. even when i told them that i had a spa appointment, they kept bringing out new people to try and convince me to buy a week at their roach motel. there was even one guy who said "look, i'm not a sales person, i work for the resort's management. but do i have a deal for you! for $XXXX we will offer you this." if i really did have a spa appointment i would've been late so they were not respectful of my time. best part of the timeshare meeting, THEY FILED FOR CHAPTER 11 BANKRUPTCY THIS YEAR.
