Long past its humble origins as a desert boomtown, Scottsdale has evolved into a world-class hub for food, wine and golf and spa getaways. At Scottsdale Camelback Resort, you’re not only near the action, but assisted by a designated Leisure Services and Adventures team that’s eager to get you involved. Whether you choose a low-key trip to the city’s shops, restaurants and casinos, or hit the Grand Canyon, the sky’s the limit to what you can do here – literally, since you’re invited to arrange a hot-air-ballooning tour.
Scottsdale is also a resort town, and if you stay on-site, you’ll properly enjoy this other side of the Valley of the Sun. At 11 acres, Camelback fits in just about every amenity you need, from championship tennis courts, to a desert-inspired spa, to picture-perfect swimming pools. And if you’d rather stay in altogether, you’ll have a desert-view patio or balcony, so you can have an adventure without even leaving your studio or villa.

How to Get There
Beautiful rooms. Comfortable. The kitchen had everything you could ask for. Quiet and relaxing. My only disappointment was the restaurant. The staff was very nice. The food was average. I was there for a break from caregiver duties. It worked
My family loved our stay at the resort. Always something to do, and my husband and son loved the walking trail with the exercise machines (I loved the pool). The only thing that would keep me from returning is the 'roadrunner' breakfast. If you are diabetic (or just want to eat healthy), just know you have extremely limited choices. Boiled eggs were the only thing I could eat. Otherwise it's all white bread, pastries, waffles and etc. There was plain oatmeal for those that like that. If you don't mind cooking, this is definitely the place to be!
Great location of property, wonderful view of Camelback Mountain, immaculate clean resort, friendly staff, great condo layout with a loft, and wonderful activities such as the water exercise classes. Instructor is fabulous and makes the activity fun.
