Stayed New Years Eve to celebrate my 39th wedding anniversary. What a mistake! The room rate goes up $100 for New Years Eve - ok, I kind of understand that - but the service shouldn't go down in the toliet. The room was clean and huge - from there it goes downhill. It was decorated inside red and black modern...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 January 2017

My husband and I recently stayed at The Boulders on a "babymoon" of sorts. The resort grounds are absolutely stunning. Every single staff member - from the front desk, to the bell men, to the men and women at the spa - were beyond welcoming and kind. Having the bell staff available to drive you to and from your room...

This is a wonderful resort for vacation - you feel like you're in the desert and yet so close to all that Phoenix has to offer. The staff and accommodations are excellent. Comfortable rooms, friendly staff, and all the amenities you could hope for. We used the fitness center and spa on a regular basis. The staff helped us set...

One of the best stays, I've ever had! The property is immaculate! The staff is well informed and very attentive to every single guest. The food is great and the spa pool was my favorite. The rooms are beautiful and the Boulders views are breathtaking!

Poor staffing they have no idea what five star is and they act like it is just a job. Over priced for the value. Location is great but service did not match price charged. Will not rebook. Golf course was hard for guest to book. Dinning room was not Five star. Tables were never cleaned next to ours. We eat...

The rooms are spacious and beautiful, with very clean bathroom and a nice backyard. The hotel is a bit hard to find at night since they turned off most of the lights to reduce light pollution. The ground area is big, and we had to call the staff to drive us to our parking lot and the pool.

Here for business, however, made a family vacation of it as well. Couldn't ask for anything more. We all had an amazing time. The place is stunning, staff super friendly, it was just a fun-filled, relaxing vacation.
