“Best place to relax, enjoy and regroup”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

Just returned from our 2nd trip to Carefree resort, a bit out of the way, but more than worth the trip!
Scenery, weather, service, and cleanliness is top rank here, we traveled from Baltimore, just to return to the "seafood buffet"!!! As a former restaurant owner, I can say the seafood was fresh and abundant, excellent wine choices.
If you are hurried by life, take a minute, and get away to Carefree, it lives up to its name, and worth the time.

Nice place to relax as well as get work done if you need the conference rooms. You will need a GPS to find it but it is worth the 35 minute drive from the Phoenix Sky Harbor airport. The resort has all the charm you expect from the Southwest. During my stay the cactus were blooming, the moon was full and the sunsets were awesome. Great trip.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the pool.

Stayed at this hotel for a certification program. Although our room was not great and our shower curtain was moldy, the food was excellent and the front desk people were extremely courteous and helpful. I would definitely stay here again if I was ever to return to Carefree, AZ.

We arrived late one evening- 11pm. After checking in Daniel whisked us to our rooms and even brought us ice, the ice machine was no where close by. We were very tired coming from a different time zone. It was wonderful to have someone show us were to find our rooms and get our luggage there.
At breakfast we were impressed when Jovanka remembered us and our previous orders and brought us them again. We felt very pampered. When a hotel is busy this was the last thing we expected. How lucky the hotel is to have such a wonderful staff. We were there for 4 nights.

Room Tip: We were across the street from the main building in a suite of rooms. They were wonderful and quiet.

Checked in only to be told I required photo ID which I didn't take with as I had my reservation confirmation - was told it was required - stated I would have to go home and after a few security questions eventually checked in - have since found out other people were not asked for photo ID - eh maybe only Uk !!!!! Anyway got to room and was ok.....Didn't try breakfast as heard it was very greasy so we went to Harold's Creek a five minute drive - what a breakfast.
The rest of the stay was fine although not used to not being able to get a drink after 12 US rules......anyway went to checkout and bill and hey presto extras on my bill which I didn't use or get - advised receptionist and she said it was the coconut jacks I had told her never heard of them never mind drink them - you would have thought I did have them - just refund and adjust my bill please didn't- find her very pleasant and a poor end to stay at hotel.
