Excellent choice for a family stay in Phoenix. Although this is more of a vacation/time-share type of resort, I stayed only as part of a three-day vacation hotel stay. I was amazed at the size of the layout of our two-bedroom, two-bath villa. Plenty of space. My teen & pre-teen kids were able to get their own queen-sized separate beds in their room (mandatory for kids in that age range!). Villa contained a full-sized kitchen with family dinner table along with a bar-cabinet table. Plenty of marble cabinets counters in the kitchen and bathrooms. The master bathroom contained a large two-person sized walk-in shower and a deep bathtub, however my wife didn't like that the bathtub was visible from the master bedroom. Washer/dryer set was much appreciated and used, but dryer took forever to dry clothes.
Loved that there were three pools including an adult-only pool. Free internet! Resort villas also did not charge me a "resort fee" that places like this typically charge (bonus points for that!).
Landscaping was great which surprised me with this being Phoenix/desert. Must spend a fortune on water bills. I took advantage of the golf discount and played at the JW Marriott Wildfire Golf Club next door and enjoyed it. Very well-kept greens (I'm sure a good portion of my green fees goes towards the water bill).
Location is a bit of drive to reach the downtown Phoenix area and even Scottsdale was about a 20 minute drive, but on our multiple trips to downtown there was not much of a traffic jam. Probably not a good choice for simply a business trip, but this hotel will definitely be my first choice if returning to the Phoenix area with family.

This morning was a golf morning for me. I took advantage of the on-site golf discount and scheduled a round at the JW Marriott Wildfire Golf Club next door and enjoyed it. Very well-kept greens (I'm sure a good portion of my green fees goes towards the water bill).
Enjoying an early 8:36 AM tee time round of golf was a good way to spend a …
After a late evening arrival to Phoenix, the crew slept in except for Laneshia who got up and made here way to a morning of spa services at the Revive Spa at the JW Marriott hotel next door to our resort. I dropped her off and watched her walk her merry way into the spa. I then headed to the store to buy some fresh food, milk and juice for our …
With Elephant in need of some attention and some pressing family business at home, our 2014 travels ground to a premature end in the south western Arizona capital of Phoenix. It is here, at the tender mercies of some friends, we have stowed the bike until we are able to return and continue. If our US circuit has been shorter than we expected, it has still provided us with much to think about.
We have ridden more than 40 000 km through ...
We had about a two hour drive to Phoenix today, however we were heading for Mesa on the east side of the city. Once we hit the city limits it took about another hour to make our way through this massive city to the campgrounds on the east side in the Mesa area.
Last year we had considered coming to Arizona for part of our winter stay and we had researched a place called ...
... me she is going to have stern talk with the representative. Again I ask if there is an upgrade available due to the schedule change and representatives behavior. She tells me there is not upgrade available but, she will email me a code that will give in a discount on any flight and it will be good for a year. To date no promo code has shown up in my email. Needless to say I’ll think twice about ever using Air Canada ...
