We rode our motorcycles from Branson, Missouri area and looked forward to a weeks worth of fun rides and seeing the area. No disappointment there! Rented from Barlows Jeep rental a 24 hour day ($340.00 with tax)...they give you maps and very helpful. Plus cooler with ice. Red rock formations are beautiful and always changing with sun or cloud cover. Took Verde Valley train ride out of Clarkdale....great views.....rode motorcycles up to Grand Canyon (no unhappy faces on this trip.....ride from Sedona to Flagstaff up 89A are awesome .....some of the best we have rode...T-Locky-Pocky (not actually how you spell but say it) Arts/Crafts Village is wonderful. Great shops and landscape in brillant. DO NOT miss going up to Jerome...as others say, it is a must. Views are spectacular.
After reading several reviews and reviewing the resort site myself ....I found they had more than told people about the resort and what to expect. It was everything I read, quite...quaint, unique, our unit was very clean, well stocked, staff very helpful, laundry area clean and FREE, presentation from Barry was not pushy at all, bistro food great (ate only one evening and the breakfast given to guest upon arrival) and casitas (mobile units) were exactly as pictured. No surprises or disappointments of this resort. It may lack the glamour but we had no issues at all. Think they are well maintained and looks like they are getting ready to add more units.
We ate twice at Red Rock BBQ in Sedona (Paul was great)...great wings and great salads! Taos Mexican food was fine but eaten better. Ate some meals at unit and outside area.
We did not use any of the pools, gym, etc. but found them very nice and well kept. We had a 2 bedroom unit and knew that bedrooms were not connected and that worked well for us. There was plenty of room for the 4 adults. No problem in the kitchen area getting around...don't know why some have problems with convection oven...not that hard to figure out.
I would recommend this and certainly stay again. No, it is not a Marriott but then again...it is not listed as one. They are constantly cleaning and working on the grounds. Every morning we seen hot air balloons passing over resort (between 5:30-6:00AM). Beautiful to see.
