My husband and I booked this as a place to stay for a concert in Tempe. I wish we'd brought the kids and stayed longer! This is a very nice resort and our one bedroom suite was very comfortable. The water park looked fabulous! And the spa is far enough removed from it to be tranquil. I don't play golf but the course was beautiful and the views from the hotel restaurant were very peaceful. My husband and I had breakfast on the patio overlooking the golf course and the food was excellent and creative. The atmosphere was very relaxing.

Had a very good suite. The resort is so convenient for travellers into Sky Harbour as it is an easy 15 minutes drive. The staff are all excellent - very friendly and helpful. We ate at both Aunt Chiladas and the Rustlers Rooste. The food was very good and the bonus was that whilst they are in the resort, they are separate so it is more like eating in a local restaurant rather than a large hotel. The golf course was a good test and fun to play, and we wished our schedule allowed us to play it more than once. Would thoroughly recommend it and will stay there again

Traveled to the Arizona Grand Resort with my wife who had a conference there. We arrived at the resort a few hours ahead of the check-in time, but we were able to get a room upon our arrival. We were upgraded to a villa room, which was greatly appreciated! I would have been disappointed if we weren't provided with an upgrade -- the upgrade shows that the resort cares about the guests.
Our villa room had an amazing view of the golf course and waterfall area (slept with our balcony door open every night to hear the water) -- it was also very nicely decorated, had a refrigerator and microwave, and a very comfortable bed. I recommend buying some groceries at the Fry's less than .5 miles away on Baseline (not the one across from the resort as that is a Fry's Electronic store). Again, the villa room was exceptional! We liked the villa room so much that I researched the cost of purchasing one.
The early check-in provided us with an opportunity to use the waterpark -- we certainly enjoyed it!! It was only open for that day (Saturday) during our stay. The water park was a very nice amenity for the resort guests -- we are already thinking about returning when it is open more. I like the fact that it is only open for resort guests!
The other amazing aspect of this resort was the fitness facility -- the best I have ever seen at a resort. It easily compares to any private workout facility out there. Shooting baskets was a nice break. I wanted to use other aspects, but decided to be lazy instead. We didn't use the spa so I cannot comment on that area. We also enjoyed the fire pit areas outside of the main lobby -- very nice section to relax at.
We have stayed at some other resorts in the Phoenix area (e.g., Camelback Inn) and the Arizona Grand Resort, with a villa room, certainly compares favorably to the others. The only area of improvement would be to have some floats available to use at the pool areas. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

We traveled to Arizona for the Fiesta Bowl...Go Broncos. Yea, we are from Idaho and found it hard to return home after being treated so well by the staff. We played golf during the down time from the bowl activities and I must say it is a fantastic course. Will come back during the season the water park is open for the family to enjoy. Did I mention the beds were nice and soft and slept like a baby all four nights. Thanks again to the Arizona Grand for helping our trip to the fiesta Bowl perfect!

I had the pleasure of staying at The Arizona Grand at the beginning of December and all I can say is "wow what a fabulous resort"! My mom, my 2 young children and I arrived late and were exhausted! We were greeted warmly by the front desk staff and then personally escorted to our room. We were happily surprised to find a huge basket of games for the kids to play (Candyland, Uno, Shutes and Ladders, and more). I have stayed at a lot of hotels with the kids and this was the first time we have encountered this-what a wonderful idea! We had a great time playing games before bed.
The beds were SO comfortable and the room was in fantastic condition, clean, great towls, linens, amenities. Unfortunately we had to leave early for the airport but I was releived to learn that Sky Harbor Airport is very close by- was like a 10 minute drive and didn't even have to get on the freeway!
Although we weren't able to enjoy the pool and restaurants this time, we stayed here back in the summer and had a blast! The water park area is amazing!!! Great for all ages, clean, attentive staff, great food. We also ate at Rustlers Roost which you should definitely make time to try, very fun experience and yummy food. My favorite is Aunt Chilada's which has terrific Mexican Food. I would highly recommend this resort anytime of the year- fantastic!
