Stayed here two nights for our friends daughter wedding ceremony. I am a 30 year desert dweller and the location, next to Saguaro National Park at the base of the Rincon Mountains, is nothing short of spectacular. Room 25 on top of hill had incredible views, wildlife abounds, birds, wild turkeys, etc.
Check in for us was major problem as reservation was inexplicably changed to a lesser room. Took over two hours to sort this all out. Andrew Fine, Operation Mgr. got it all resolved but took alot of negotiating on my part.
This is not a luxe resort and food was mediocre. You are isolated from any other places to try as ranch is over 10 miles from anything else. This is a dude ranch of sorts. Meaning horses rule. I am not a horse person. Kids will love this place and is geared for families too. I would not consider this an adult romantic getaway type of place.
Also this is a small resort. Only 65 rooms. That is neither bad nor good. Crowds are not a problem here.
