Travel Blogs from Sedona
Not going to let any grass grow around our wheels, nope! Packed up early for a short drive up to Valley Verde Thousand Trails near Sedona. It was trying to rain but couldn't quite manage it. We realized that since we left home (this is day 40!) we have had not a drop of rain. (An inch of snow - but no rain). We're glad to leave the desert ...
... I had been wanting to do some father son stuff, and we thought the cave sounded pretty adventurous. It took us almost 45 minutes to get there driving on dirt roads, but it's the coolest thing I've done so far on the trip. It's about a mile long, dead end cave with lava rock all along it. In some places you're walking on what looks like (and is, I guess) a frozen/dried up river of lava. We spent about an hour and a half ...
... br> We hiked the 3/4 mile loop and checked things out, then headed back to the truck. While Laurie sees the subtle differences in these places, I really don't. They look very similar to me. But she enjoys it so.....and it's in a beautiful place. I drive, hike, explore, do photography, read and learn, and share the day with my wife......and that's a great day for me. I like it when she's doing something she enjoys.....and ...
... packed me up with Thanks Giving left overs - so as it was I did not get to experience any restaurants in Sedona but I hear they are very good. I decided to stay in Sedona for 3 nights (2 days) and I managed to go on a Pink Jeep tour at sunset (highly recommended - photos and commentary attached), star gazing tour (which was OK but would be nicer in the warm months), and a hike through some of the beautiful country side of Sedona (photos and commentary attached). As I was ...
... were the family with 4 kids from Australia. Not only are they terribly disappointed, I would imagine they have very negative thoughts about our government -- as do most of us at this point.
It's getting dark earlier and earlier; now dark at 6:30. There is only so much you can do after dark (read, computer stuff, play app games, and write on this blog. I'm often asleep by 9:30.

Historical Traveler Reviews Los Abrigados Resort and Spa Sedona
Honeymoon at los abrigados...
We really like Los Abrigados and would go back in a heartbeat! The staff were friendly and very helpful. I loved the spa and the massages and facial were great. The room was the jerome suite which was nothing terribly luxurious, but roomy and clean. We did do the 90+ min. tour but we also enjoyed our extra 100 bucks to use!
Lots Of Room And Great Location
We were very pleased to check into this hotel and be upgraded to a two bedroom unit at no extra charge. The rooms were spacious, simply but nicely appointed, and close to many shops and restaurants. Despite being in the middle of town, the hotel was still quiet and secluded. The only drawback for me was that I found the sheets on the bed to be hot and scratchy, but my traveling companion did not mind them. We had no sales pitches thrown our way for their vacation club. Mini-kitchen (without stove) was fine for preparing simple breakfasts, etc.
Get ready for a giant sales pitch
We just returned from a four day stay in Sedona-the first two nights were at the Radisson Poco Diablo Resort-this was a two for one special for about $200..........this was not a bad place to stay-nice room-Poco King facing golf course and red rocks........the whole resort is old but the room was great!The Radisson was actually booked for the rest of our Sedona stay so we looked for another hotel and decide we had to try Los Abrigados after walking through the lobby........we loved- loved -loved the location......right behind Tlaquepaque........perfect! The children's pool and mini golf and gym-GREAT! Our kids loved the pool.they also have nice tennis courts and basketball........ ........ The DOWN side is that they want YOU to BUY into it and make that abundantly clear froom the get-go...they offer all kinds of incentives to "take the 90 minute tour"-OK OK........maybe that appeals to the masses-but it was very annoying to us....we had limited time to spend in Red Rock Country and did not want to waste any of it for the approx $100 value they offer........So if you don't mind taking the tour-you can get vouchers for jeep tours or dinner at one of the three restaurants there or even a night at their "lesser" known and smaller inn- uptown Sedona(Los Abrigados Lodge) for 49.95..As far as the accomodations-the suite ws not exactly luxurious-it was more like staying in someone else's condo or apartment which was weird.It was very spacious but for $225.00 night-one could do better..........We told them when we checked out how annoying the sales pitch was-and the staff knew exactly what we were talking about and sympathized! they encouraged us to write a complaint.
My family recently returned from a week stay in Arizona. We visited 4 different properties and found Los Abrigados to be a disappointment.
The room was spacious buy very "tired" in furnishing and decor. The sofa had a hole, the shower desperately needing updating, and the spa facility only fair. The view from our "Flagstaff" room was mostly of the parking lot. The location of the resort is very good but I would spend my money at another location.
This people doesn't have ANY RESPECT for customers.
Very simple, i got there with my confirmation in hand, and they gave my room to someone else. No offer to fix the problem, no apologize, but lot of bad attitude(A young lady Kimberly, from the front desk). Just my money back, and good bye.
Bad start for my vacation in Sedona, but found a very nice room somewhere else,with very good customer service. Tonight, August/5/2003, i'm writing this review from my laptop,going back home tomorrow morning, i had great time in this town, and this bitter story will be for sure included in my conversation with everybody about my trip.
Loved it will go back again
Loved it will go back again. The staff was great. Very relaxing resort.
Looking forward to my next stay. Great rooms and great view of the mountains.
Very special place. In the heart of Red Rock Country its close enough for easy day trips to the Grand Canyon and Jericho, Oak Creek and the Verde Canyons. Shopping in Sedonna is friendly, easy access and interesting with a wide variety of colorful local shops. Tours through the area by Jeep, on foot and with your own vehicle are well thought out and most of them offer some of the most beautiful vistas this country has to offer.
Los Abrigados is friendly to kids and families but is carefully crafted to make sure adults who just want to relax are offered all the peace, tranquility and ammenities a top rate resort should have. A bar at the adult pool and after my visit they now know how to make a very good Bloody Mary.
Good dining. Beautiful grounds and a one minute walk to one of Arizonas nicest artisan villages, Tlaquepaque.
We liked it so much we bought our own.
Great Place! Great Spa!
We have been to Los Abrigados three times and will be back again soon! The resort is lovely and we really enjoy the spa services. Looking forward to returning!
Great service, spacious rooms
Right when i walked into this hotel i knew it would be great. It had a great lobby and the people were very friendly. The room was very big and it was a little pricy but it was made up for. They were very helpful in setting up arrangements for a Pink Jeep Tour (I recommend fully) and they have a great restarant on the premesis. Overall i had a great time
Great place to relax
Stayed five nights at this resort and spa. Got a massage and relaxed by the pool. Pool area has bar service with modest priced drinks ( kids have their own pool area so it wasn't overly noisy). 3 great resturants next the the hotel. All rooms have living room and separate bedroom. The staff working were very helpful setting up any tours that we were interested in taking.Would recomend ( exchanged through RCI)
