We are northern midwesterners just completing a two week mid-winter stay at this facility, which we picked out from on line information, although we had had a similar stay in this city a few years ago (a good stay at another property). It is located in the northeast fringe of Tucson but roads are good. The closest stores are 5-7 minutes away Our experience overall has been very favorable. It is a beautiful and well-maintained facility nestled into the base of the Santa Catalina mountains with ample use of the natural surroundings.The walking path through desert flora up to a waterfall is beautiful. As non-golfers we were initially concerned about being in a golfing resort, but we needn't have worried; there are high level golf, tennis, and exercise facilities as part of the offerings, but the main hotel is aimed at the general vacationer. They host a number of groups and meetings but without being intrusive about it. Our room was very comfortable and reasonably luxurious; the mattress was comfortable. Some of the room features were slightly dated, but the manager states the rooms are due for an upgrade. We suggested better charging stations and some bathroom revisions but these were trivial. A routine supply of an in-room refrigerator (one was supplied on request) and microwave would be good. The overall state of cleanliness and maintenance was excellent. Perhaps the best aspect of our stay has been the staff- uniformly friendly, helpful, down to earth, real people. We detected no hint whatever of employee problems. Any request or concern was swiftly dealt with. The food service was excellent and we loved the breakfasts. There are several lunch and daytime food outlets. Evening meals are a choice between the expensive Flying V Bar and Grill or a limited but tasty menu served in the central bar-lounge. There are, however, a plethora of good restaurants in Tucson. Parking was convenient. The facility is a 30-40 minute drive from the Tucson airport and there is no hotel limo. I summary, we do heartily recommend this resort for a very comfortable, reasonably upscale but not glittery experience.
