The staff at Amara Resort and Spa went above and beyond to make our trip amazing. Every staff member was extremely friendly, personable, and knowledgeable. They offered tips and suggestions on attractions and restaurants. The staff mailed our post cards for free and printed off our flight tickets for us. The front desk staff upgraded our room for free.

We stayed here March 11 - 14 as a gift from my daughter for my "end of chemo". The location is great as it is walking distance to the main shopping area. I was not able to walk up the steep hill though; however, they have a shuttle which takes you just about any place you want to go within...

What a nice gift from your daughter! We are really flattered that she would choose us for you to relax and recharge. I appreciate the note regarding the pool seating... While we are a bit limited on space, we are looking into adding additional seating to keep up with demand when the weather is fantastic. Thank you for the review!

Just stayed at the Amara Resort in Sedona for three days and had a wonderful time. The location and setting are perfect - it's in town, so you could walk to stores and restaurants if you want to, but it's set way back away from the road and the traffic so it feels very private. The staff is terrific, friendly...

We stayed here for two nights over spring break. Book early because vacancies are hard to find! Amara is conveniently located right off SR89A N and adjacent to Oak Creek. In fact, there are stairs next to the infinity pool that go down to the creek. Be sure to plan some time to enjoy the heated infinity pool. There are...

Wow, you hit on just about everything! Great note regarding booking ahead... during our busiest season, room accommodations and spa treatments can fill up quickly. Check back in the summer if you are looking for some great rates... it's certainly warmer, but still quite beautiful for getting out and exploring Sedona!

We fell in love with this property! All staff are accommodating and knowledgeable. We made thorough use of the resort shuttle and we happily walked to many places given the great location. The Salt Rock cafe on site is amazing...this dinner was the highlight of our trip! Enjoyed the infinity pool with the most splendid view of the rock formations.

We came here for spring break and I have been very pleased with the service. We opted for the creekside suite- which offers a great balcony with lounge chairs and a 4 top table with unreal views of the mountains, creek and pool. We were in 255. TIP: 1/2 of the hotel has blazing morning sun and 1/2 has blazing...

A friend and I spent a weekend at the Amara - we drove up from Phoenix in time for the wine hour on Friday night. Even though it was chilly, we sat outside sipping wine, enjoying the view, and being warmed by the fire pits. Breakfast at the hotel was good. We arranged a wine tour through the hotel for...

Love that this is in the heart of Sedona but seems private and faraway. Free valet parking and shuttle service to sites a mile or less away. Can walk to shopping. Free yoga, gym, steam room. Infinity pool and nice jacuzzi. Games on the lawn. Fab seating around fire pits. View of red rocks is gorgeous.

Boggles my mind how hotels call themselves "resorts," but they certainly are not! Stayed here in July and the pool was basically unusable. Overcrowded to the point you had to wait for a lounge chair. Once you got a chair you couldn't get towels because their supply had run out. I complained about it twice and still had to wait...

Ouch! I must say it is tough to hear about issues from eight months ago, but they still need to be on our radar! We've actually made a lot of changes in our pool service since your stay in relation to staffing, additional seating + umbrellas, and process. Regardless of the improvements, I certainly apologize for any missteps that you...

My wife and I recently finished a four night stay at the Amara in Sedona. It was the third year in a row we have stayed there and, alas, it will be our last.

There is no substitution for comfort... I am very sorry that we were unable to move you to a room that would suite your needs a bit better. And while another room may not have been available, we should have spare mattresses just in case. I will certainly look into this to ensure we are properly supplied. We hope that...
