“Had everything we needed and served us well”
Reviewed 6 May 2012

My husband and I just returned from a week's stay at Sedona Pines. The location, about 10 minutes outside of uptown Sedona, was perfect for us. Gave us good access to Sedona, Cottonwood, grocery stores, etc. We were very comfortable in the one bedroom condo. At first, when we arrived it seemed small but you adjust during your stay and realize it has everything you need and is very comfortable. The kitchen was well-stocked with utensils, dishes, bbq equipment, blender, mixer, iron, etc. We were also well-stocked with bathroom towels, pool towels, blankets, pillows, etc. The bedroom had plenty of storage and the beds were very comfortable. A mid-week cleaning was provided which was much appreciated. We also really appreciated having use of the free laundry room. There were a number of available machines and we were glad for the opportunity to wash our red-dusty hiking clothes.

We were in an end unit with a fountain outside our living room window. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck for breakfast and dinner and made use of our unit's charcoal grill a couple of times during our stay. We also used the pool and one of the jacuzzi's just about every late afternoon after coming in from a day of sight seeing and hiking. While we didn't get a chance to use, the fitness room had everything we would have needed.

We visited the Sedona Pines Bistro and used the free margarita tickets we were given. The margaritas were very tasty and the singer entertaining in the bar was very good. The one con that we experienced was that at about 7:30, after finishing our margaritas, we tried to get a table for dinner. The menu looked good and there were lots of positive reviews on the food. We were told that the kitchen only stays open until 7:00. We were really surprised and disappointed in the early closing and had to head into town to get something to eat. We noted that many places even in town seemed to close on the early side.

This was our second trip to Sedona. Our stay was from 4/28 - 5/04. We had 5 sunny days and 2 partially cloudy days. All days hit the low 80's in temperature. We did a day trip to the Grand Canyon (again) starting at the east side at Desert View and making our way to Hermit's Rest via a combination of driving, hiking, and shuttle bus. We also spent a morning at Dead Horse Ranch in Cottonwood and that afternoon riding the Verde Canyon Railroad (1st class), both outings a treat. Other days were spent hiking including West Fork Trail, Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte, Chimney Rock, and Red Rock State Park.

All in all a great trip. Would recommend Sedona Pines to couples or singles. The place was well-maintained and we found everyone to be very friendly and accommodating.

We rode our motorcycles from Branson, Missouri area and looked forward to a weeks worth of fun rides and seeing the area. No disappointment there! Rented from Barlows Jeep rental a 24 hour day ($340.00 with tax)...they give you maps and very helpful. Plus cooler with ice. Red rock formations are beautiful and always changing with sun or cloud cover. Took Verde Valley train ride out of Clarkdale....great views.....rode motorcycles up to Grand Canyon (no unhappy faces on this trip.....ride from Sedona to Flagstaff up 89A are awesome .....some of the best we have rode...T-Locky-Pocky (not actually how you spell but say it) Arts/Crafts Village is wonderful. Great shops and landscape in brillant. DO NOT miss going up to Jerome...as others say, it is a must. Views are spectacular.

After reading several reviews and reviewing the resort site myself ....I found they had more than told people about the resort and what to expect. It was everything I read, quite...quaint, unique, our unit was very clean, well stocked, staff very helpful, laundry area clean and FREE, presentation from Barry was not pushy at all, bistro food great (ate only one evening and the breakfast given to guest upon arrival) and casitas (mobile units) were exactly as pictured. No surprises or disappointments of this resort. It may lack the glamour but we had no issues at all. Think they are well maintained and looks like they are getting ready to add more units.

We ate twice at Red Rock BBQ in Sedona (Paul was great)...great wings and great salads! Taos Mexican food was fine but eaten better. Ate some meals at unit and outside area.

We did not use any of the pools, gym, etc. but found them very nice and well kept. We had a 2 bedroom unit and knew that bedrooms were not connected and that worked well for us. There was plenty of room for the 4 adults. No problem in the kitchen area getting around...don't know why some have problems with convection oven...not that hard to figure out.

I would recommend this and certainly stay again. No, it is not a Marriott but then again...it is not listed as one. They are constantly cleaning and working on the grounds. Every morning we seen hot air balloons passing over resort (between 5:30-6:00AM). Beautiful to see.

Room Tip: We did not have a brook running behind our unit but when walking we did observe and thought they wou...

We stayed in December 2011. Bring layers, a coat and a hat in the winter. The dusting of snow in the canyons was gorgeous. Yes, these units are basically small mobile homes with a coat of terra cotta stucco. You will likely feel as if you have spent several days in an RV. We love having a full kitchen when traveling; we are not interested in being forced to dine out for every meal.
These units are quiet, they are not terribly up-to-date, but yes, they are relatively clean. I give the maintenance staff a C+ to a B-.

I am certain that there are other properties in Sedona that will give me a bit more elegance, luxury and cache for my timeshare dollar. In all fairness, I doubt we will return. But if selection is limited, I would not miss an opportunity to spend time in this fantastic town, and would make do at Sedona Pines.

Used our left over points to stay 5 night in a one bedroom cottage. Couldn't have asked for anything better in Sedona. The cottage was perfect for the two of us. They took care of our tours and we were picked up on time by Dave for tours of the Grand Canyon, Grand Canyon Train one-way Dave's great hidden spots and knowledge on the way back.Next day the Hopi Indian Reservation. Both are a must and ask for Dave, he has lived in Sedona for 30 years has his masters and knows everything you could ever want to know about the area. Take the time to go on the Verde Canyon Train beautiful scenery with Bald Eagles in view catching fish from the river AMAZING! The Bistro had Delicious food after long days sightseeing, just the place to fuel up then the adult spa and bed for another full day of exploring the Red Rocks.

We enjoyed our stay here last week, I think the "cottages" would be a little TOO cozy for more than two people, but for my husband & I it was just right. It isn't a luxurious place but it is very comfortable & clean. The staff was really courteous, the landscaping immaculate, pool wasn't crowded & the 18 hole mini golf course was fun. My husband referred to the resort as "the trailer court" but when I suggested we stay somewhere next time we visit, he said no he wanted to stay there again. :-)
Also, it's part of a timeshare place but when we passed on the presentation there was no pressure, which I appreciated.

Room Tip: check out Lower or Upper Red Rock Loop road on your way into town one time for some beautiful view p...

We have recently returned from Sedona Pines and like others say its good to know about reviewers values when understanding the review. We were there to hike and visit other attractions eg Grand Canyon Walnut Canyon and so on. We knew that we would be driving and walking quite a bit during the day and would have liked to have been nearer Sedona so that we wouldn't have to drive to eat out in the evening. We had hoped to use the restuarant on site but didn't for two reasons. Firstly the last orders were at 7.45 - rather early if you have been hiking/ touring all day and want to have a shower etc before eating. Secondly we did have one dinner which was adequate but not worth the price we paid. (about $65 for 1 starter, 1 salad and 1 main 1 beer 1 glass of wine and a couple of cokes.) None of the party 'got' the graffiti on the wall - maybe its cos we don't come from the US!
The layout of the site is lovely and the free laundry was a bonus especailly as there were quite a number of washers and dryers. However there is no getting away from the fact that the units are small and it was impossible for 2 people to pass in the kitchen or the main bedroom. However the the second bedroom was much larger. The units are also somewhat tired and beginning to need refurbishment - the paintwork is chipped, and at first glance could appear dirty (although it wasn't so well done to the cleaners) and the sliding wardrobe doors didn't slide very well!

The bedrooms did suffer from one of our pet hates - windows without curtains! We sleep with black out blinds at home so having windows high in the ceiling with no way of blocking the light was something that we found very annoying. I can apprectiate that some might like the light streaming in the morning but it would be nice to have the option!

We didn't try any of the on-site activites as we were planning to tour/hike and didn't have the time.

To be honest we didn't see much of the staff but when we did they were friendly and helpful.

We stayed at the resort for a week and found it very enjoyable and relaxing. While it is located outside of Sedona, the city is only a quick 10 minute drive away. We were in a "family" unit of two separate units. Some of the upsides are that there is a pool onsite, a couple of hot tubs (including an adult only hot tub), a putt-putt golf course, trails around, and it is centrally located between Cottonwood and Sedona (also close to Jerome, Prescott, and Flagstaff). Ths staff was always friendly and helpful. We ate at the onsite restraurant and enjoyed the meal very much.
