We had a second floor unit with a patio with a table and 4 chairs with a nice view of Camelback Mountain. We would sit on the patio at night and see beautiful sunsets.
There is a good-sized swimming pool, spa and plenty of lounge chairs at the resort with very clean rest rooms. There’s a large children’s pool with a canopy to shade you from the sun. The pool’s open from 8am to 10pm. Towels are available in your unit. There’s a reasonably priced restaurant and bar adjacent to the pool. If you didn’t bring your laptop, there is a laptop in the restaurant you can use for free to access the Internet. It was available whenever we wanted to use it.
There’s an exercise room, game room, walking trails, tennis courts, putting green, and charcoal grills with picnic tables. A concierge is available and the front desk has directions to area attractions.The staff was friendly and the resort is kept very clean. The units are non-smoking and no pets are allowed.
We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend the Scottsdale Camelback Resort.

Our two-bedroom unit was immaculate. The living room featured a wood-burning fireplace and had furnishings done in a beautiful Southwestern style. The living room opened to a large, private, walled-in patio that was almost 300 square feet in size. From our living room, with binoculars, we could see climbers hiking the trails to the top of Camelback Mountain. The master bedroom featured a queen bed and a desk, and the master bath had a double sink, whirlpool tub, and walk-in shower. The second bedroom had two twin beds. Besides having a washer/dryer in the unit, the resort offered a complimentary mid-week housekeeping cleaning and towel exchange
The units are all non-smoking, and no pets are allowed. If you would like a daily paper delivered to your room, you pay for the paper, and delivery is free. Also, be aware that if you are going to be making local calls, they are 50 cents each.
The grounds are beautiful. The lawns were perfectly manicured, and we didn’t see any litter at all. The resort contained virtually every amenity except a golf course (which would have been a little hard to fit on 11 acres). There are two walking trails, a pool, fitness room, three tennis courts, a beautiful putting green, and a 9-hole miniature golf course. In addition, the resort had a "Cactus Garden", volleyball court, children’s play area, croquet court, horseshoe pits, picnic tables, charcoal grills, and a reasonably priced restaurant. If you are a golfer, the concierge will be glad to arrange discounts for you at a number of local courses nearby.
Every Monday, at a complimentary breakfast, the resort concierge outlined the week’s events, which included many of the usual activities (crafts, massage services, guided walks, and a ping-pong tournament) and at least one activity for the adventure-prone (a hike up Camelback Mountain). Outside vendors were on hand (hot-air balloon ride, desert jeep tours, horseback tours, and a city bus tour) and gave presentations for their reasonably priced services, which could be scheduled through the concierge.
For shoppers, the resort is less than 5 minutes by car from Scottsdale’s huge indoor Fashion Square Mall and from the shops of "old historic Scottsdale".
This resort is truly a "gem". We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and you will too.

My favorite things were the day trips to Tucson and the Desert Museum and a day trip to Sedona to see the famous red rocks. I also highly recommend going to Taliesin West, which is Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture studio/school in Arizona—a one-of-a-kind experience, and the Heard Museum in Phoenix—the best Native American art museum in the world.
