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.

... he loves guacamole on this trip. Julia had Portobello mushroom fajitas...she has been having a lot of mushrooms! Then we went shopping in downtown Sedona. We all had a lot of leftovers from the Javelina Cantina and from the Tavern grill, so we decided to have the leftovers for dinner and go to sleep early so we could get up and get going to the Grand Canyon.
... a bit of climbing, what goes up must go down and believe it or not, hopping and wishing that I'm not the one who bites it! We agreed......WE ARE NOT QUITTERS and to power through. Even 4 hours, 4 miles that felt like at least 8, we were glad that we did stick it out. The cool mountain air, huge trees, canyons and bubbling creek were worth every aching, please help me lift my leg to move forward, I ...
... We drove by several formations ... Cathedral Rock, Castle Rock, Bell Rock, Courthouse Butte, and Snoopy Rock. There are tons of trails to each of these different formations but it was extremely hot ... over 90 degrees .. by the time we drove though so we just walked a short way out to get some good pictures.
Had a great day all in all but I'm sure glad we are in the mountains .. much cooler than down in that desert.
... since we left New York. Most people in the Midwest have been locals or some version of and to be honest I think I like them better. But despite the fact I had to share my Grand Canyon experience with other people it was still quite spectacular and watching the sunset over the Grand Canyon is something that I think everyone has to do in their lifetime. It helps you to remember that you are just one small part of the history of this amazing planet ...
We were told that Flagstaff is the nearest place to sleep before going to Grand Canyon. It's not true, though. It turns out that Flagstaff is 150 miles away from Grand Canyon, whereas Williams is only 84 miles away. So if you plan to sleep near the south entrance to Grand Canyon, be sure to go to Williams.
Flagstaff was also the coldest place we have been to, it's the only place where we saw snow and experienced temperatures below ...
