We've stayed at several resorts over the years in Scottsdale, but this place has a great energy you won't find anyplace else. You are in the heart of the action. If you are looking for something quiet this probably should'nt be your top choice. But if you like casinos and action, you will be pleased with the restaurants on site... More

Expansive Pool area perfect for cooling off - Rooms are up to date with rain shower. Casino - of course it is all a cost of entertainment - dont expect to win - lucky if you do. Had a band that was pretty good for party dancing.

We have stayed her a few times and always got the basic room so on our last visit we decided to upgrade, just stick with the normal room. They set the bar pretty high with those rooms the slight upgrade feels like nothing different.

The rooms were magnificent. the standard room felt like a suite. I can only imagine the actual suites. Also plenty of different dining options through out the resort. So you don't have to eat the same thing again and again. Also love music in the bar area was great. All Around enjoyed.

Beautiful property and rooms. Only downside for non smokers you have to enter into the casino to checkin to the hotel and walk thru the smoke filled casino to the hotel rooms. Ground floor rooms have high ceilings and floor to ceiling drapes. Fav hotel in the area

This resort is very unaccommadating. rude service from every employee including manager of the entire hotel. Layouts of cabanas are change on third party websites where tickets are deeemed valid. Do not purchase a cabana as you will not receive one that is easily accessable. Cabanas 21-25 are placed behind the stage and no where near a pool. Do not... More

Here is the scoop. We enjoyed our stay here. We were there at Thanksgiving. The casino was fun and exciting. The rooms were far enough away that we did not have issues with smoke or noise. The staff did an amazing job of making our stay an incredible experience. One small concern, we were flying in from the East Coast... More

The room was nicely appointed, fairly large, and the bed/pillows were above average. The bathroom was large and the shower was well above average. The views of the mountains were quite a bit in the distance, but nonetheless enjoyable. The TV was average and we did not use the WiFi although it was included in the price. The casino was... More

The reviews complaining about the smoky casino at this property are accurate, but if you can separate that from the hotel, this can still be a very nice place to visit. We had two rooms, and both were what would be expected for the upscale prices. Amenities were satisfactory and staff friendly and helpful. Restaurants were very good overall and... More

My family and I spent 4 days there. We are now going to make it one of our favorite spots every visit to Scottsdale. Loved the room and the view of the mountains. Very quiet. Loved all the different restaurants downstairs. Nice golf course. Loved spending hours at the pools.
