    The Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs is a superb resort for a casual stay. It's elevated location in the North Mountain Preserve provides access to hiking paths through the Colossal Cave system and Montezuma Castle National Monument. But you don't have to stray far from the resort in order to find something to do. This resort is home to one of the area's top golf courses, the Lookout Mountain Golf Club, which (as its name suggests) offers panoramic vistas from fairways, as well as a full-service spa, multiple pools and a water park for the kids. When dinnertime rolls around, sit down to a satisfying steak dinner at the AAA Four Diamond Award-winning Different Pointe of View restaurant (but be sure to make reservations). Accommodations here are all suites and feature comforts such as Internet access, coffee makers and fully stocked minibars.

    The Waste Management Phoenix Open, a popular PGA tournament, puts the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess in the spotlight once a year and takes over the resort's two golf courses. Yet guests believe this palatial resort deserves the fanfare year-round. They rave about the spacious guest rooms, which are adorned in earthy hues and equipped with soaking bath tubs, wet bars and private patios or balconies overlooking the desert landscape. This expansive property in Scottsdale also boasts six pools, some of which include waterslides, along with a full-service spa. Meanwhile, the Fairmont's multiple restaurants cater to a wide variety of tastes. Carnivores can get their fix at BOURBON STEAK, while spicier palates can indulge in some of Arizona's best Mexican fare at La Hacienda by Richard Sandoval.

    The Arizona Grand Resort is big. Just how big? Big enough to have its own water park, 18-hole golf course, fitness club and spa — plus six restaurants. With so much to see and do on-site and off, guests are happily overwhelmed with the options for fun at the resort. When you need an escape, book a massage or prepare to hit the links, which features fantastic desert views. If you're not a golfer, you can take in the scenery from your guest room's balcony or patio; accommodations also feature flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi access. The resort is not close to the business centers of downtown Phoenix or the upscale shopping of Scottsdale, so be prepared to drive or stay put.

    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    Hugged by the hills of Marana, Arizona – 27 miles northwest of downtown Tucson – this Ritz opts for trendy over tradition, with contemporary art and sleek furnishings dominating the decor. And though The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain might not deliver authentic hacienda living, recent guests don't seem to mind the lack of traditional Southwestern style. (Besides, if you're craving a true taste of the region, you can simply make dinner reservations at CORE Kitchen & Wine Bar.) The spa and pool area make a great setting for some R&R, while golfers give high praise to the 27-hole, Jack Nicklaus-designed course (guests gain access to these amenities after paying a daily resort fee of $50). Travelers also appreciated the low-key elegance of the guest rooms, where plush fabrics feel homey while high-end features (like deep-soaking tubs and private balconies) feel deluxe. Yet despite all of its positive aspects, guests say it's the staff's friendliness that truly makes their stays memorable. Marriott Bonvoy members can also use and earn points by staying here.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2585 reviewsTripAdvisor (2585)
    Free WiFi

    Perhaps the most historical hotel in Phoenix, the Arizona Biltmore, A Waldorf Astoria Resort has been welcoming Valley of the Sun visitors (including such notable names as Irving Berlin and Marilyn Monroe) since 1929. And though competing resorts keep springing up around it, this landmark property continues to shine. Rising above the Camelback Corridor, this Waldorf Astoria property keeps guests busy with two exceptional golf courses, an award-winning spa, six tennis courts and eight swimming pools. On the inside, the Biltmore maintains its Gilded Age feel, with the lobby encompassing hardwood floors and low lighting and guest rooms sporting cozy furnishings and contemporary design elements. In addition to the beautiful grounds, the food served at the hotel's four eateries receives a thumbs-up from previous visitors, who especially love the contemporary American cuisine dished up at Frank & Albert's. All of these lavish amenities and accommodations, though, come at a high price point; however, Hilton Honors members may be able to earn and redeem benefits by choosing to stay here.

    Located in Gainey Ranch (a verdant part of Scottsdale known for its palm trees), the Hyatt Regency exudes a tropical-oasis-meets-Aztec-palace feel. Although guest rooms are spacious and chic  boasting flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and private patios or balconies  it's the 10 pools and man-made beach that garner the most praise from recent visitors. Numerous and varied, this Hyatt's swim spots cater to visitors of every age: Some have cascading waterfalls, others have fountains, but if you'd rather stay dry, opt for a gondola ride along the waterways. Though it may take some coaxing to lure yourself (or your travel buddies) away from the pool, guests also recommend playing a round of golf at the Gainey Ranch Golf Club, or indulging in a massage at Spa Avania. Then, cap off the day with dinner at one of several on-site eateries.

    Sure, this resort in Tucson, Arizona's Sonoran Foothills has the usual golf course (27 holes designed by PGA pro Jack Nicklaus), spa (a Red Door Salon & Spa) and gourmet dining (four restaurants, to be exact). But guests say that one of the best things about The Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa is its family-friendly atmosphere. Younger visitors will find loads of toys at the Westin Family Kids Club, while certified staff members provide childcare and supervised kid-centric activities like outdoor games and arts and crafts. Guests also say that their children enjoyed this Westin outpost's pool area, which features a 177-foot waterslide. And with an exclusive adults-only pool, R&R-seekers can escape the noise. The only issue some travelers encountered at this property was in regards to the daily $29 resort fee, which is automatically attached to your bill whether or not you take advantage of the amenities covered by the charge. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Sitting on the edge of Saguaro National Park's Tucson Mountain District, the JW Marriott Tucson  Starr Pass Resort & Spa combines the peace and quiet of a secluded getaway with the convenience of a suburban location. Guests appreciate having plenty of opportunities to enjoy Tucson; plus, the resort is surrounded by hiking and mountain biking trails, while the views from the Starr Pass Golf Club are worth the few extra minutes you'll no doubt spend on the tee box. Many guests also highlight this JW Marriott's value, claiming that its guest rooms and amenities are top notch, all while remaining affordable. (Plus, you can save money by paying your bill with Marriott Bonvoy points.)

    The Phoenician, A Luxury Collection Resort, Scottsdale has long set the standard for luxury in the Valley of the Sun. It's not hard to see why. For one thing, the setting is unbelievable – when reserving your room, ask for accommodations with views of Camelback Mountain. Even if those are all booked, recent visitors say that you won't be too disappointed, as all rooms feature elegant furnishings, Italian marble bathrooms and private balconies or patios. And if you're looking for a little more space, opt to stay in one of the elegant Canyon Suites. This 250-acre Luxury Collection property also boasts an 18-hole championship golf course, a tennis complex, a full-service spa and plenty of restaurants, lounges and snack bars. And did we mention the massive art collection on-site? Should you think that all of this is out of your price range (resort and parking fees are expensive as well), you can cut costs by using the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program.

    On the Gila River Indian Reservation just south of Phoenix, the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa is the premier spot to explore Native American culture. Because of its isolated location, rooms allow guests to see miles of desert from their windows (or from their private balconies). Still, "isolated" doesn't mean guests are bored. The resort saddles up to the championship Whirlwind Golf Club, while the in-house Aji Spa boasts a wide array of treatments. This Sheraton also offers easy access to the Wild Horse Pass Casino and the Rawhide Western Village. Meanwhile, the resort's marquis restaurant, Kai, is the only AAA Five Diamond restaurant in Arizona, offering an exquisite fusion of local indigenous ingredients and contemporary cuisine. And as the day draws to a close, hunker down in one of 500 rooms, equipped with plasma-screen TVs and the Sheraton brand's signature Sweet Sleeper beds.

    Situated on a Native American reservation just northeast of Scottsdale, Talking Stick Resort has the essentials to compete in the Phoenix-Scottsdale tourism industry. Golf course? Check. Massive spa? Check. Pools? Check. But, what it offers that few others do not are distinctly designed rooms — complete with stylish decor, 40-inch flat-screen massive televisions and complimentary wireless Internet access — and a massive casino. The majority of Talking Stick visitors were relatively pleased with their experiences here. However, some visitors who come for a resort stay rather than a gambling expedition complain of cigarette smoke coming from the casino. And though dining is abundant here, many said the food here is nothing special.

You can also play golf on one of two courses, lounge by one of four pools or grab a bite to eat at one of five restaurants. However, according to recent visitors, you'd be remiss if you stayed here and didn't indulge in a treatment at the massive on-site spa. And because of the resort's ties to Hilton Hotels, members of the Hilton Honors loyalty program can use points to pay for rooms – that means additional cash to invest in massages and facials.

    Set at the base of the Phoenix Mountain Preserve, this 27-acre Hilton property is more like an oasis than a resort. The climate is warm, the location is peaceful and the pool is its own little island – dotted with palm trees, waterfalls and jagged rock formations. But that doesn't mean all you should do is lounge around. The Pointe Hilton is brimming with activities for all ages, with many guests saying it's the perfect getaway for families. Children will reach nirvana at the River Ranch, which has 4 acres of pools outfitted with a waterslide and lazy river (a crowd favorite), as well as miniature golf and Coyote Camp, the property's kids day camp. Adults can get their fill of fun by playing a round of golf or tennis, or treating themselves to some down time at the 10,000-square-foot spa. In-room amenities are just as plentiful, with suites all featuring Hilton Serenity Beds, flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi access (which is included in the nightly $26 resort fee). At Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort, Hilton Honors members can use and earn points.

    Sitting in northern Scottsdale – near the McCormick Ranch and Camelback golf clubs – The Scottsdale Plaza Resort has been welcoming Valley of the Sun visitors for more than 25 years. This property has made a name for itself as a hot convention spot, thanks to its ample meeting space (21 meeting rooms, 58 breakout suites and an amphitheater). Even if you're not here on business, recent guests give the Scottsdale Plaza Resort a thumbs-up, citing the resort's five swimming pools and on-site spa, not to mention three outdoor whirlpools. Meanwhile, guest rooms here earn praise for their in-room minibars and flat-screen TVs; however, some guests complain about having to pay a daily resort fee.
