Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Pinon Pointe Sedona
Overall, a very nice experience
We purchased a timeshare here. It consists of a large one bedroom apt. and a connected but seperate studio apt. Everything about the accomodation was as described and we were not disappointed. Keep in mind that this property is not a hotel. Don't expect room service, bar, restaurant etc. It's a timeshare even though they're renting rooms by the night for now to promote sales. The pool was large with two jacuzzis. There's a jacuzzi off in a corner that accomodates two very well and is intimate. From the pool deck the views are stunning. It was great taking a sunset swim with all the breathtaking scenary around us. The location is perfect nestled in uptown Sedona. I would have to give special kudos to the two ladies at the concierge desk. We were there for a week and they set us up on all the side trips we took. All of their recommendations were met without disappointment. Can't wait to return for our second week in November.
Fell in love, going back
Went to Sedona on a lark and fell in love with the Hyatt Pinon Pointe. Huge 1 BR unit was very comfortable and fully equipped with a great kitchen. Grocery stores are just a few minutes away and we ended up eating in most nights with our young son. Pool area has gorgeous views and clubhouse is clean, cozy and staffed by the friendliest people in the world. Great to get your morning coffee there and sit the pool. Walking distance to uptown and shops, a Starbucks and a restaurant were in the process of opening on site (room service to come from the restaurant). We had great service, too, from housekeeping to the concierge. We ended up buying a 2BR and are going back in August. Some units have limited views but most have good to great ones.
Good Location - Great Property
I was pleasantly surprised at this property. We had a great rate on a 1-br room and we were not disappointed at all. The room was great and tastefully upscale. We couldn't believe the big screen TV and brand new DVD/CD/Tuner in the living room. My daughter loved the gas fireplace and I loved the full kitchen and HUGE dining table. We made good use of the washer/dryer unit and of course the 2-person whirlpool tub off of the Master bedroom. You could walk directly into town from this property - a real plus. The staff were friendly - and the activity center and pool area was great. If you don't have a great view from your room - then go to the pool area. Fabulous! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone and we will definitely stay there again during our next visit to Sedona.
We had a two bedroom suite with and incredible view. The exercise room staff were very helpful recommending good beginner hikes. The heated pool was open late and the perfect temp in April. We could walk everywhere and that is important in crowded Sedona. I would definitely stay here again. I can't think of one bad thing to say about this Hyatt and I'm very picky.
Great place to stay
We recently stayed at the Hyatt Pinon Pointe in Sedona, AZ. It was absolutely beautiful! We would highly recommend it for families vacationing in that area.
Here's the lowdown...
You will only be happy if you have either the 1 or 2 bedroom suite. The studios are dark, smallish and do not have views. On the other hand we were thrilled with our 2 bedroom unit, comprised of a 1 bedroom and the attached studio. The full kitchen and dishwasher, master bed and bathroom including jacuzzi tub for 2, lovely furnishings in living room with stereo, dvd player and gas fireplace were all terrific. Our kids had no complaints being in the studio side. Our view was spectacular, even if over a parking lot. There was noise from upstairs which was quite surprising considering the new construction, and I am sure had we been only in the studio or 1 bedroom we would have heard the connecting room. So whereas we thought the Hyatt was great, I can easily understand how some people would not like it. Pool area is quite beautiful with awesome views from hot tubs and pool, gym was great no extra charge, nice common area attached with books and fireplace. uEasy walk into Uptown Sedona and nearby restaurants. Maid service was slow, did not show up until 4:30 in afternoon and did not understand English and simple requests for towels. Hotel was full when we were there. We would go back.
Best Place to Stay in Sedona
We stayed at the Hyatt in April, 2004 and could not have asked for a better hotel. The rooms are gorgeous and big. Our room had two bedrooms, a full kitchen (and kitchenette in the studio, which can be closed off as a separate unit), washer/dryer, two bathrooms, a dining area, and living room with a gas fireplace. All decorated very nicely, and all spacious. Although not all of the rooms have great views, everyone can enjoy the pool area, which has some of the nicest views in the area. The heated pool was great for kids, the hot tubs were lovely, and the workout room/entertainment room were a nice bonus, although they close a little early (7:00pm). And finally, the Hyatt's location can't be beat - easy access to the major roads, and easy walk to downtown Sedona.
We stayed here March 12. We were able to get a "Grand Opening" promotional rate through the internet. I was excited to see the resort because other Hyatt resorts are so nice. We arrived at 2:30 in the afternoon and were told to come back at 4 because that was the check-in time and our room wasn't ready. That was the first disappointment. The next was that our room did not have a view and the patio was very small - its view was of the stairs leading to the pool area. The most important disappointment was that we could hear the people in the next room-condo through the connecting door as well as through the vents in the bathroom. People looking to invest in the timeshare need to consider this before plunking down their money!!
Small smoke smelly room. No parking near building. Not resort quality.
Don't waste your money.
A Heaven on Earth
Hyatt was absolutely excellent place, and I'm glad I chose it. The property was incredible. Everything is brand new, beautifully decorated and every room in my two-bedroom condo had very tastefully selected decor of South-Western style. I loved it so much, I even asked at the front desk for the name and the person who is responsible for the decoration of the hotel, because I liked certain pieces of furniture and decoration and I wanted to buy them for my house in NY. The view from the room was terrific with mountains right in front of you. The patio from the bedroom was a great place in the evening to relax with a good book or a cup of coffee. The stuff in hotel was excellent and very helpful and friendly. Everyone were there to help you and constantly smiled. I felt very welcomed and it was great to just kick back and relax and forget about the reality for a few days.
I highly recommend to anyone who is going to Sedona to stay in this place. I loved it and I've stayed before in 5 stars resorts and hotels, this place was most beautiful from every place I ever stayed in. Maybe because of the beauty of surrounding nature, maybe because of the decor of the hotel and the rooms, I don't know. But my stay in Hyatt was just incredible and I will definitely come back there again. I already recommended it to many of my friends, so that they are also can have great vacation like myself.

... and unexpected joy - hoping that the rock I'm skipping to is going to hold you long enough to get to the next! The dogs absolutely loved it and had a dog smile the whole time. No one fell in.....entirely anyway. About the time that what we now know was only about 30% through, we were starting to wonder "are we there yet". Although probably one of the most beautiful, the hike was pretty ...
... just spectacular. Some parts of the rock had been made into caves to walk through, and the switchbacks are intense. We walked for 20 minutes in, and 30 minutes out, but didn't want to go much further as we hadn't brought any water. Even though it was early in the morning, there were many people on the trail, going both directions. We briefly met a couple who were carrying large overnight backpacks who told us they were on day 4 of a rim-to-rim trek. "My goal was just not to ...
... drive back to Sedona.
We ate at a great Mexican restaurant, Javelina Cantina which was very good food. The first time we went the food and service was fabulous. We went back a second time and the service was terrible - the food was still great. We wrote a note on the back of our receipt stating our feelings about the service we received. ...
... Most of us ended up in Collins Irish Pub!! Had a nice meal, sat with Tom & Corrine. We all had Fish & Chips ( are you noticing a theme here? Irish pub = fish & chips!). Absolutely shattered now, although we have been told us room is ready on the train so I have a feeling it will be straight to bed, as we might have to be up 5.30am for breakfast. Just had an announcement to say train is running late, is due in at ...
... was somewhat improved but still not great.
I booked a room in Page but when I tried to drive there I found out that the road was closed. I'm pretty sure they were repairing damage from recent rains. Since the detour took me most of the way to Flagstaff I cancelled my room in Page and got a room in Flagstaff instead.
