As we drove off the freeway heading east, we were certain we must have taken a wrong turn. But the curving road around desert hills eventually reveals a magnificent sight nestled around saguaro covered hills. The road took us to the front of the resort where we were rewarded with a spectacular view as soon as we entered the building. It got better from there. Our room and the facilities were beautiful, spacious and sparklingly clean. I was there for a conference in December and I'm sure it helped work to be a little more painless.
