Our casita was easily the most beautiful hotel room we stayed in during our extended trip to Arizona. We were assigned a casita with Jacuzzi in the furthest block of rooms from the resort, and were the only travelers in that block, so it was quiet. A pleasant walk was required to get to the food, the bar, and the...

This one is truly difficult to accurately and fairly rate. Interestingly set on a hillside, the casita style resort complex is meticulously maintained on the exterior. The staff is attentive and helpful; quickly dealing with any issues a guest may encounter. The rooms are more than spacious and give the occupants a sense of serenity and privacy. Great golf course....

This golf course is absolutely the best I have played in a long time. Stunning views on the Dinosaur course. Fairway in great shape and greens medium fast. Keeping your head down may not be what you do at this course because there is so much to take in. Would highly recommend.

It was a great place to stay as a home base for hiking in the beautiful Superstition Mountains. The hotel is a little dated, but still beautiful. My only disappointment was the "hidden" $15/night fee (it was in the fine print bit I missed it) for parking, wifi and the use of the driving range.

We stayed at this resort on a golf trip with several guys. The golf is outstanding. Dinosaur mountain course is one of the most interesting courses you can play. Picture playing golf up on over desert mountains. The hotel and restaurant are also first class.

Midweek afternoon check-in with reservations was a simple, efficient and pleasant experience. We stayed for 3 nights and checked out at 2:00pm on a Saturday afternoon. Normal checkout is at 11:00 am. We opted to pay $25 for a 3 hour delay which we did at 9:00am. But caution ..... if the hotel is busy, it may not be possible...

Back in its day, I'm sure this hotel/resort was considered to be 4 star. However it's now grown old and tired. Great location and the golf course looks nice. Other than paint and I'm guessing some new mattresses everything else appears to be original......and that means "old & dated". I'm guessing there hasn't been a significant capital improvement in decades....

The website is VERY misleading. We stayed in their only "2 bedroom condo". I was told it had updated amenities and furniture. For reference if you go, it was actually 2 units, a 1 bedroom suite with a double door that attached to a king spa room, 1043 & 1044. The smell when we entered was very pungent so we...

My boyfriend and I booked this resort for his birthday weekend. We stayed one night and definitely wish we would have stayed two. Due to a busy weekend for the resort we weren't able to so I would recommend calling about a month in advance to secure your desired room and length of stay especially during busy season. Also they...

Stayed here as our home was flooded. Check in took over 15 minutes in line and I was first in line. 2 agents working the front. Room keys didn't work upon trying to enter my room. Called front desk- spoke with Tessa. She asked if I wanted to come back to the lobby or wait. Of course, with luggage etc......
