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 …
... we could do that. I found a place called South Mountain and the others concurred it seemed a much better option than paying to look at plants.
To fill our tummies for the day's adventures I invented what Alex has called Breakfast Blorrell, a strange cross between eggy bread and a Spanish omelette. Basically I had a stale loaf of bread to use up and just invented something edible with what was left over in the fridge. It all got eaten so it can't have been too bad!

So on the road we headed, saying goodbye to the quiet city of Lake Havasu and unfortunately leaving the hot weather behind us. This was a relativity short journey compared to what we had done and should only take up 2 and half hours. We stopped off for some lunch on the way - I can't now tell you where it was but there were array of places to grab a ...
