You can have a good time and not worry about having a designated driver. The resort itself is fun and has good amenities such as covered parking which is very important in Arizona. The room is nice enough, but be prepared for people going up and down the hallway with zero volume control at all hours of the night. Pros:...

Had a club level room - nice size, clean, and comfortable. Also, very quiet. We had it on the opposite side of the pool and you couldn't hear anything. Club levels come with a drink and food concierge access. It was fine, the food was good - snacks really, but it is well worth it. It's better than Embassy if...

The bathroom was large and spotless, with a deep soaking tub and rainfall VERY TALL shower (tall people can appreciate the rarity of this!). The multi-level lighting was ideal for creating a relaxing ambience. The...

What a great hotel for a Staycation. Rooms are great, plenty of activities and the cabana service at the pool was amazing. Highly recommend the Orange sky restaurant too. We try and come here once a year and have not been disappointed that last 4 years.

Bonnie and Clay - the managers at the hotel told me they don't have a customer service policy. I was there 3 hours before they were going to give ceramic wares to club members - I had to go out of town and even had proof. They wouldn't give me the items because it wasn't 1pm. It was too much...

My husband and I and our 6 year old stayed here for two nights and met up with the rest of the family. I was exceedingly impressed with this hotel after I stepped through the casino - the back part has another wonderful lobby opening onto the resort grounds. This is very nicely done and more family atmosphere...the room was...

My husband and I always enjoy ourselves at Talking Stick, however, the heavy bass beat that plays by the pool is really annoying. I suppose the target is the twenty-something crowd, but a few decimal points lower would be so nice. Positives: 1. The Blue Coyote Grill is great for breakfast 2. The spa staff are very accommodating 3. The...
