Tanque Verde celebrates the Arizona western/cowboy experience. The decor, surroundings, staff, activities (hiking, many horse riding options) are not just Western themed, but actually Western. This is not the generic resort experience, though the expected features are there as well: spa, pool, dining, etc. The atmosphere is friendly and informal. We took an easy horse ride into the private property's hills among the cactus - very scenic - and there are options for the serious or advanced rider. Location is at the very edge of one of Tucson's main avenues, making navigation easy. We did not find it hard to navigate the property at night, and the low-wattage path lighting is actually a big benefit: we were able to fully see the stars at night because there was no light pollution. Highly recommended.
