I have just concluded my stay at the resort. At check out I requested to pay my bill part by cash and part by credit card. I have now returned to Australia to find that the resort has charged me the full amount without any regard for the cash amount paid. This is unbelievable and would never occur in Australia....

As a local Scottsdale resident who has frequented most of the high-end resorts in the Phoenix area, I was somewhat disappointed on my most recent visit to the Boulders. While the staff was lovely, the spa really needs some updating. For example, the lockers could not accommodate basic day bags. Furthermore, I was concerned that there were not sufficient attendants...

This resort is fairly far out in the desert away from the activities of Scottsdale-so if you are looking for something quiet this might be the right place. The golf course was beautiful, the staff was great in some places but not in others, the spa needs some cleaning or updating. Their was a mold looking substance on the walls...

Stayed at this property fo the third time, first after needed updating. The roooms are beautiful, quiet and the resort feels like you are literally off the grid. It is a wonderful escape with terrific food, spa, staff and amazing golf!

14 guys spent 4 days on a golf getaway. I shared a 3 bedroom with two friends and were delighted once we saw the accomodations - exceeded our expectations. Played both Boulders courses and were extremely satisfied. Ate at several places on site and they were service-conscious to allow us to get 14 separate checks without any issue. Would definitely...

Couldn't get the billing right. Took 3 days to put in a missing light bulb. 2 days to clean fireplace after smoke filling the room. Multiple calls over multiple hours to get anything taken care of. Spend the big bucks at another resort

We had a short weekend stay during the summer where we played golf, had dinner and enjoyed the spa. It felt like we'd been away for a week even though we only stayed one night. The setting is beautiful and the golf courses are challenging and in excellent condition year-round. A casita will make you feel like a piece of...

What a fabulous place! It'd easy to see why this is in a Curio set of hotels, as there are fabulous and unique aspects. The rooms are renovated beautifully and are comfortably decorated.

This resort, although beautiful, leaves much to be desired. They are unorganized and the food in the restaurants isn't great. This rooms are very nice and well appointed, however for the price it doesn't seem worth it.
