Historical Traveler Reviews Poco Diablo Resort Sedona
Excellent Place to Stay
Had a wonderful stay over Thanksgiving. What may be lacking in some of the amenities (the rooms are a bit worn, but very spacious...)is more than made up for by the excellent and attentive staff. The restaurant's fixed price dinner menu is a tremendous bargain and the food is exquisite. I plan to stay there again.
We had a Spa room for our anniversary and it was AWESOME!! When making the reservations I told them it was our anniversary. When we checked in, we were greeted with a complimentary bottle of champagne (already chilling next to the in room hot tub). The grounds were nice and we were visited by some of the local wildlife (a birdlike creature we dubbed Tuck).Everything was just fabulous. We opted for the Red Rock Fantasy Package, which includes two tickets to the local Christmas light show. When checking in, we were given a letter welcoming us and giving us directions to the light show. Also mentioned that there would be hot chocolate and apple cider in the lobby. To our disappointment, no such setup was available for us. However, when we mentioned it to a staff member, they quickly went into the kitchen and fetched us some warm drinks. All and all a great place to stay!!
Almira is awesome!
Very nice stay! Nice room! Got a massage from Almira, she brought tears to my eyes, wanted to bring her with me as my own personal massuse!
KUDOS to Almira! Thank you for a memory that will last a lifetime!
Villas at Poco Diablo
We rented one night here and loved it. The location is great, nice and quiet. All ground level units, some facing the small executive golf course and some the pool/parking lot. We stayed in a one bedroom with an extrance off the parking lot, but the living room area had a doorwall and patio overlooking oak creek. The bathroom area was set-up nice. Outside the bathroom was a large vanity/sink area that was separate. The bedroom was large with a sliding door that closed it off from the rest of the unit. The kitchen had everything - all built along one wall and shared the area with the dining room and living room. The living room had a fireplace in the corner. Next to our unit was a full patio area complete with BBQ grills that actually had all cooking utensils, ice machines and tables overlooking oak creek. I liked the area, it was far enough away from the traffic and oise of downtown and it was nice to listen to oak creek at night. It was a great price compared to all the other hotel properties in Sedona.
Radisson Poco Diablo.....beware of mildew!!!
My husband and I stayed here this past weekend 10/24-10/26 and I was horrified by this property. We booked a King Garden room online @ $115.00 per night and we could not believe the type of room we received for that price, which is not that much for Sedona but being that it was a Radisson property we expected more. The first room that we were given faced a wall and smelled of smoke (this was a non-smoking room) I immediately called the front desk and she was polite and courteous and found another room for us. We were moved to a room on the second floor which did not smell of smoke but the bathroom was full of mold and mildew. I am very sensitive to this stuff and spent most of the first night there uncomfortable and irritated. I could not believe that a property like this would have such an unclean bathroom. I spoke with the front desk the next morning and by that afternoon the bathroom was sparkling. But it took me to complain about it...in order for it to be cleaned!!! Both my husband and I felt like we were in a cheap run down motel not the Radisson!! They need to renovate and re-paint their "garden" rooms and make sure that they are clean enough for people to sleep and shower there. While the staff was friendly I would not stay at this property again due to the filthy bathroom issues and the sheer run down look of it. If I wanted a Motel I would have booked a room elsewhwere for a lot less at least that way I would have gotten what I paid for...I hope this helps.
We liked this place.It was a really nice room for the price-it cost about 100$ a day for a Poco King with an extremely comfortable bed...this room was newly refurbished.It faced the golf course with a partial view of the red rocks.I would ask for a room with more of a red rock view next time.We wanted to stay longer but the hotel was booked so we moved to Los Abrigados for double the price...........
A perfect getaway
In the aftermath of 9/11 and having been too close to the event, I needed a complete break. A 3 day stay at the Radisson Poco Diablo provided just that in January 2001. The accomodation was spacious, comfortable and soo very pleasant. The heated whirlpool on a January night was exhilarating. All staff were pleasant, informative and courteous; and finally - waking to the breathtaking view of the surrounding beauty was the kind of experience I shall never forget...
Enjoyed Poco Diablo
We are a family of 4 and really enjoyed this property. When we arrived, the room type we had reserved was not available. We were upgraded after very little arguing. I would have expected the staff to have offered an upgrade without us having to get upset. For the most part, the staff at the resort is helpful and accommodating. The par 3 golf course is a little disappointing but the room quality was superb. The facility is close to all the action, but far enough away for some seclusion and peace and quiet. We enjoyed sliding rock and the sites in Sedona are incredible. We ate at a restaurant called Oak Creek Canyon. It is a must try.
Perfect for family vacation
We stayed only one day and night at this resort but wished it had been more. If you like to get away from the tourist crowd in Sedona and enjoy a quieter place, this is a great choice. They have a game room with pool table, ping pong table, and air hockey. It was really rather chilly in April, and our teenage kids were tired of sight-seeing. We'd been to the red rock country before, so they were delighted just to play "acoustic" games with us and then relax in the pool and hot tub. Staff was great and let us in the room before noon, so we had all afternoon to relax. We're not golfers, but the par 3 course was just out our windows and looked great. Room was spacious, with 2 queen beds and refrigerator. The only thing that was not in keeping with the rest of the relaxed resort was the restaurant, which looked fancy and higher priced than we wanted. So we went into town for Mexican!
Poco Diablo is a good 3 star hotel
The Poco Diablo is a very nice 3 star type hotel. The grounds are quite nice and the rooms are spacious and clean. It is very close to the center of Sedona making access to restaurants,shops and hiking trails quite conveinent. If you are looking for an extremely elegant resort experience this is not the place for you. It is really more geared to families wanting a large room with access to tennis courts and a whirlpool. The rooms are all accessed from the outside, similar to a motor-court, and with nice views of the sourrounding red rocks of Sedona. There is a restaurant and a bar, that can meet basic needs.

This morning was not the best time to wake with an iffy tummy. Oh no. Please not, on the day we are off on a two hour off road jeep experience!
Isn't it slways the way?
Our Pink Jeep tour was due to set off at 9am, after we had signed our lives away on a total disclaimer. That is always a little disconcerting.... but one has no choice, so sign away.
There was special mention for anyone with a bad back that they did not recommend the tour: which made ...
... but staying in the middle & continuing to walk carefully over. Eventually we made it back up to the parking lot. After a quick break, we headed back out on the road to go to the Chapel of the Holy Cross. As we neared the chapel we noticed that there quite a few cars trying to park or get in line to go up to the upper parking lot. Thankfully Jon found a spot near the bottom so we just had to carefully walk up the road to the top which was a bit interesting with cars coming ...
With a full day to sightsee in Arizona we headed north early heading for Sedona, Oak Creek Canyon and Flagstaff.
Heading north from Phoenix the landscape changed from Sonoran with the iconic saguaro cactus dotting the vistas to a barren high desert environment as we ascending to 6,000 ft elevation.

The rain came in last night and it's been pouring. Tim and Marianna left this morning. Good timing. We didn't do a lot today because of the weather. We went to Montezuma's Castle, a 5 story cliff dwelling built by Indians over 600 years ago. We then did a little shopping in Tlaquepaque, a little artsy village sort of within Sedona. We had a beer at the Oak Creek Brewery, then headed home and did some laundry. We ate dinner out later at the Cowboy ...
... a phenomenal vision. While it is handicapped accessible I doubt, as you can see, that many handicapped would visit. Everything is uphill and then the circular ramp takes you to the top. When you get there the view is awesome, even the view sitting in the chapel. It is hard to believe that while looking out that window the worshippers would hear a single word the priest was saying, but then again you can't look out that window ...
