Reviewed yesterday NEW

Loved the rooms, views, pool and fitness facility. Food was also excellent. Enjoyed the trails for walking and hiking. Looking for a reason to come back again soon. Easy drive from Phoenix and Mesa airports.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

This was my 3rd trip to The Boulders, it seems I go every 6/7 years and I hope I will be fortunate enough to continue to come back. The service at the resort and the spa are definitely 5 stars. I would give the restaurants (apart from the spa restaurant) 4 stars and the accommodations 3 stars. That's HOW AMAZING...

Amazing resort just a few minutes from Scottsdale. The resort is just beautiful with pathways so well maintained. The casita that I got was just beautiful with great size and pristine decoration despite the "faux" stone wall. Very comfortable beds. Complimentary water. Netflix access. Cute squirrels and birds always in the terrazzo of my casita and wild boars (very friendly)...

I waited 30 minutes in the check-in line. Then, I waited another 30 minutes because my room was not ready at 6:15P. I wasn't the only guest. It made me late to an event for a wedding that was being hosted by the resort, so they knew about the timing. Later, at Midnight, they had no transportation available back to...

The Boulders is a peaceful escape, well outside of Phoenix and a fair distance from Scottsdale. We stayed in a Boulders Casita which, contrary to the website, was not a stand alone structure but shared walls on either side. However, we heard nothing from our neighbors the entire stay (although didn't see any either). The room was spacious adn the...

While the accommodations were nice, it is really not very good for large parties...too spread out. As for my room it was big and well kept...except for my shower which had something protruding from the floor that cut my foot and the shower leaked, There was a bad odor outside my door coming from a partially opened tank not far...

Not your typical high end golf resort. A beautiful place to stay for any reason. Unique and exceptional with perfect service. We were pleasantly surprised. We will definitely stay again when visiting the Phoenix area.

Overall nice hotel. Location was very far away from Scottsdale and Phoenix. Service was good. Room could have been a little cleaner. The biggest problem is the lighting around the bed area was very poor . A single overhead hanging a light for a bed area is a bad idea.

Thank you for the comments surrounding your casita and the lighting. We appreciate the feedback. We are looking into the housecleaning comment to ensure all rooms are being cleaned properly.

Traveled here for a wedding. Beautiful surrroundings, and stunning scenery. But very spread out and at times inconvenient. Happy enough with the room itself. Large spa area, but found the treatments there expensive.
