We absolutely loved this resort. It is in a great central location in Sedona but has a very secluded view and feel. The pool and hot tub were very nice. The rooms were large and very nice with a balcony and nice view. They had a very fun happy hour and nice bar area off the lounge. We had my...

We absolutely loved having you stay with us!!! It is always a better stay when you are able to share it with the ones you love. For celebrating a 64 year anniversary we should have shot off fireworks for that!!! That is absolutely incredible….All kidding aside we appreciate you choosing to spend that momentous occasion with us at the Amara....

The personnel at the Amara are wonderful! Everyone was helpful and friendly. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. My only complaint is that the pool was really small for the amount of rooms. No place to sit most of the day.

I expected the hotel to be much better than it was. Although the view from the pool is pretty and the hotel is clean and has a pretty good location, the issue we had was that they (over)charge for everything. We felt that anything that we needed (from getting ice, to parking our car, to ordering room service) we had...

My husband and I visited Sedona around Memorial Day, during the canyon fire, and were a bit disappointed about the smoke during the cool evenings/mornings. However, we had such a peaceful week staying at Amara. We were not disturbed by kids or dogs (it is a pet-friendly hotel), and even the renovations weren't too disruptive. We enjoyed the cabanas at...

We went there as a family, just for one night before going hot air ballooning. The hotel is wonderfully placed in the center of Sedona, close to restaurants and craft shops.

I made our Hotel Amara reservation three months prior to arrival. After reading several reviews, less than stellar, I chose Amara because of the Kimpton flag and thought they were on the right track with modifications and upgrades as reviews indicated. I phoned to make my reservation to specifically request a pool facing room (another helpful hint from TripAdvisor comments)....
