This may be great for golfers, but it is not a good choice for a three-generation family group of non-golfers. Pluses: beautiful setting, very helpful staff, lovely room, bobcat outside our balcony. Minuses: The main pool is too cold for a toddler, and there is no shade in the afternoons when the wind regularly forces them to take down the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 15 January 2017

If spending some time alone or with someone special in a remote location in a luxury casita is appealing, then the Boulders is where you will want to come. It is located in the desert surrounded by boulders and it is a photographer's dream. Everyone there is so accommodating. The shuttle service is fast and they will take you anywhere...

Enjoy the flavor of Arizona! We had a very roomy casita with mesquite wood burning fireplace set in grounds landscaped like natural desert among great boulders. The food was excellent. The weather is near perfect this time of year. The Boulders provided a great venue for our business meetings in a desirable area. There was plenty to do on and...

The hub took me here to run away from the kids for a night. Beautiful. We were upgraded to a CEO suite which was humungous. Loved the bathrooms! The grounds are beautiful. Paths all over. Bunnies running everywhere. So peaceful and outdoorsy. Ate at Spotted Donkey. The marketplace was a bit desolate, but the food was delish! When we checked...

Beautiful hotel and immaculate grounds, rooms were recently renovated, we stayed in a one bedroom suite. Our first day we could tell that they were not staffed properly. For the value this is not what we expect from a five-star hotel. We can highly recommend Paolo Verde as a delicious dining experience, and the spa café for a wonderful staff...

Easter brunch at The Boulders could not have been more special! The manager went way beyond the call of duty to get us a last minute reservation at a beautiful table on the outdoor patio. The wait staff was so friendly & obviously loved their jobs - which made us feel even more welcome & comfortable. The food was over-the-top...

We booked this trip as a get away from our endless grey skies, rain, and cold. I looked through a bunch of resorts and settled on the Boulders because it looked nice and we've never been to Cave Creek. The resort is spread out over almost 1500 acres. We stayed in the casitas. There are no "hotel" type rooms. The...

My family stayed in a 2 bedroom villa and considering the price, we expected a lot more in terms of service and accommodations. Issues: cockroaches in the room with barely concerned staff when alerted, tvs not operable in any room (had to call engineering - arrived promptly and fixed the issue in 1 room, but didn't check the other tvs),...
