With a guests-only water park (complete with lazy river, wave pool and slides) and six restaurants serving everything from BBQ to Mexican, the Arizona Grand Resort is designed for family fun at every turn. Tasteful Southwestern hacienda style is on display throughout 740 spacious and comfortable desert-hued suites. All have large flatscreen TVs, private patios or balconies and separate bedroom and living rooms. Add a sophisticated spa and an 18-hole golf course with mountain vistas, and a family vacation here practically plans itself.
In the Area
The hotel runs a free shuttle to the popular Arizona Mills Mall (ask for a schedule at the bell desk). Check out the Sea Life Aquarium, which features a 360-degree ocean tunnel and more than 5,000 sea creatures, from sharks and rays to sea turtles. Marvel at the genius of Frank Lloyd Wright while walking through his desert masterpiece and former winter home, Taliesin West. Sip champagne and nosh on a gourmet breakfast in a beautiful hot air balloon over the desert. Saddle up with the whole family to explore the desert, pan for gold and traverse Superstition Mountain with Arizona Trail Horse Company.
How to Get There
Our overall experience was good with customer service and accommodations.
Unfortunately, two out of the three beds in our room need attention. My daughter slept on the pull out couch. The mattress was so old that the wires left marks on her legs while she was sleeping because they were protruding so bad. She attempted to lay additional blankets down between her and the bed to be more comfortable, this did not help. The pull out bed also continuously woke the two of us up throughout the night because it made so much noise every time she moved.
In addition, the mattress on the first bed when you walk in the room sunk down on one side so bad that I kept rolling into my husband all night. Little sleep made it difficult to enjoy the next day.
Great staycation with the extended family. This was our fourth time staying as we always have so much fun. There were 3 Adults and 3 Kids in our group this last trip. (kids ages 11-14) OASIS: Kids loved the water slides, lazy river, and wave pool. The adults in our group also enjoyed the lazy river and poolside bar/food service. ROOMS: Set up is great for families. Separate area with a fold out that worked great for our youngest. Liked how bathroom sink wasn't in with the shower and toilet so multiple people could get ready at the same time. FOOD: We brought drinks and snacks for our rooms and ate at the pool and had dinner at Rustler's Roost. Took the hotel shuttle up and down to the restaurant which was nice. STAFF: It was a crazy weekend with lots of teams staying there but the staff was so friendly, accessible, and helpful. We'll for sure be going back!!
The best relaxing experience!!! From the moment I arrived through my entire stay up until the end. Words can’t explain the friendliness from every single person I encountered. I felt like I was really on a secluded island! I loved every moment and can not wait to go back
Overall, we had a great time staying here. We are local couple without kids and just needed a weekend getaway and this was ideal. The water park was fun and there are plenty of restaurants and a grocery store just up the street. I took one rating circle away because our room was difficult to locate and parking was awful. The pools that aren't part of the water park are perfect for some shaded relaxation and time away from the water park excitement. Also, Friday and Saturday night they had a movie in the pool which was a neat touch that I'm sure the kids staying there loved. I recommend this place for some great family time with plenty to do. One more note, the hotel is a little loud because there are kids everywhere but stay on the opposite side of the waterpark and away from the stairs and elevators for a more quiet experience - were were literally overlooking the park so it was a bit noisy compared to the many hotels I've stayed at
This is a great place to stay, but, if you want to watch any television, they have a poor selection of channels. They should invest in something better. Pools are great, especially the adult's only one.
