We loved our recent stay at this resort. We stayed in the Griffin Club room and it was totally worth every penny! We have traveled quite a bit and have never had service as good as here. The Griffin Club can't be beat. We loved Tyler especially in the Club room. He was beyond awesome. The breakfast, lunch and dinner...

Breakfast buffet- $27 for one person. The grounds and room were clean. The place is huge. Be prepared to pay extra for anything. There is a nice shopping area that is close by. The staff that we dealt with were helpful and friendly.

This place is definitely a five star resort! I have been to some five star resorts that were ok. This resort is over the top. The grounds are breathtaking, and well maintained. The inside of the hotel lobby is awesome, contemporary without feeling cold or cavernous. There are restaurants inside the hotel, also there are lots of places to just...

It really has everything you could want - a spa, fabulous pools, wonderful scenery, friendly hotel staff - and the kicker, Roy's Restaurant! That's just the beginning for all the features. The biggest problem is LEAVING! No wonder a wedding chose that location! If you need to get away from it all, this is the perfect place! Romantic but also...

First of all, if you are a platinum member dont expect anything. I kind of figured this being a resort, but wow, nothing? Anyways, the check in process, clearly define where the line is. Of course as mentioned mobile check in does not mean anything here. I requested late checkout just in case. Yet i had a knock from housekeeping...

The design of this place is awesome. All the elements are on display in a beautiful way. Water, Wood, Fire,Mountains, Metal. Its a great place to bring family, awesome pools, and a lazy river. Has movies in the pool, and a GREAT taco stand outside the lazy river. FUN family resort with everything you need. Spa and Tennis as well.

This is a wonderful place to stay when in Phoenix. We prefer a view of the lazy river or the pools. Capri island is pretty but always looks boring and hot to us. We love to hear the water from the pools and lazy river. The spa is amazing! I love the smell of this spa, the gift shop is...
