Best Things Nearby:
Grand Canyon Railroad was a great time, and an added bus tour was a great way to get a taste of the Grand Canyon. Pink Jeep tours were very informative and a real blast for a chicken like myself! Schnebly Hill Road was a great way to see the red rocks and Sedona below... beware that it is a dirt road and very steep, but very worthwhile. My absolute favorite part of the vacation was the Painted Desert, about 2.5 hours away... the sunset there is a must. We loved dining at the Cowboy Club, where we ate prickly-pear cactus fries and buffalo burgers; Cucina Rustica, where the cheese-stuffed olive appetizers were wonderful; Dahl and Diluca has a great Italian menu; and Javilina Cantina, where the Mexican food was terrific.

Best Things About the Resort:
The resort itself was quite nice - the units are separate, so you have no noise from others around you to worry about. It was maintained very nicely, the cleaning staff were excellent... they even emptied out the dishwasher for us!

We had an end unit, and were able to watch hot-air balloons rise over the nearby hill each morning while we ate our breakfast on our deck. I'd go back again if I had the chance.

Resort Experience:
It was one of the best vactions we've ever been on, right up there with our very expensive tour to Italy! It was very hot while we were there (105 degrees), but it was a dry heat (we're from the Northeast, which is always so humid), so it was really quite nice. There was so very much to do there - we could have easily stayed another week or so.
