Spent a delightful weekend with family enjoying the facilities and wonderful restaurant. The dinning experience alone was worth the trip. The pool and hiking are first class and are very accessible. A place will certainly return to.

100% of the staff at his resort were unbelievable. Unbelievable to the point that my wife and I looked at each other at one point and said "who do they think we are?" Sarah the front desk manger was wonderful and Jeff the pool manager stepped way out for what ever reservation you needed in town. A highlight was to...

The Sanctuary at Camelback is by far the nicest place I have ever stayed. The rooms, the pool, spa, and food are all incredible. The staff also goes out of their way to make you feel pampered. While this hotel comes with a high cost you get exactly what you pay for. I would highly recommend Sanctuary.

Visited during Nirvana, the food & wine festival, and couldn't have been more impressed. Everyone at the resort was friendly and accommodating, so in spite of the sellout crowd I never felt like "just one more person to look out for" -- instead I felt genuinely welcomed, valued and at home. Extra special touch: the bowl of green apples on...

We celebrated a business awards function at this resort where we entertained 20 guests. The rooms are very well appointed and approriate for the moutains and desert. The service is a 10 on a 10 scale as the people cannot be nicer. We attended two new functions at the resort 'Best of the West" where chefs and vendors from the...

Stayed at the hotel during March Madness finals. There was a big group staying at the hotel so some afternoons the pool area was very crowded but for the most part the hotel seemed very quiet during our stay.

Beautiful resort in a stunning setting with amazing staff and service. The bell staff and concierge were wonderful. We stayed in a Mountain View Suite which was gorgeous....spacious, modern and clean. I would definitely recommend this resort to others. I wish we could have stayed longer.

The Sanctuary at Camelback mountain is a wonderful experience. Excellent food, on point service, beautiful mountain views, and amazing spa offerings. Close proximity to fun and food in Scottsdale, too, but the restaurants and services on site are all great. We enjoyed our time there and will definitely be back someday.

Great location near Camelback and the facility itself is pretty well laid out and easy to navigate - once you figure out where to go the first time. It is a resort that caters towards folks without kids, or folks who don't travel with them - at least on weekends. We were there with a large family group(16), Easter weekend...
