How to Get There
We had a great stay at We-Ko-Pa Resort this weekend for the Dupree Dance competition! We got room service and Eric who brought us up our food was so kind and professional. We forgot to order a few things and he ran back down and got it for us quickly. The service overall was great and they were so accommodating to this group!
One of the nicest resort hotels and properties we have ever had the opportunity of staying at. The hotel staff were very upbeat, friendly, and accommodating. Our king-bed accommodations were very well appointed, clean, and the bed, bedding/pillows very comfortable. The pool and outdoor lounging areas are fantastic. Our dinner / breakfast (the next morning) in the casino, was top-notch from start to finish including the service - amazing chefs! We’re looking forward to coming back again for another stay later this year! And, we can’t wait to see and enjoy their new Casio when it’s completed sometime in mid-2020! Kudos to the staff and owners, we thank you for a wonderful time!
We traveled to Arizona and vacation in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. The resort was under construction but still enjoyable to stay. An added treat was the fact that there was also a near by casino. Both the room and restaurant
