Arroyo Roble

Best Things Nearby:
The restaurants and shops of uptown Sedona. Oak Creek is directly behind the resort, and Slide Rock State Park (6 miles).

Best Things About the Resort:
The location is wonderful, since it is within walking distance to uptown Sedona; however, when you are in the resort, you don't even know that the town is there. This is because the resort is nestled down a steep hill where the sights and sounds of the town are not apparent. The setting of the resort is garden-like, with plenty of trees, grass, and fountains.

Resort Experience:
Arroyo Roble is an older but comfortable resort that serves well for a home base while in Sedona. We had a two-floor, two-bedroom unit with the bedrooms on the second floor. The only minor problem is that the units are fairly dark, with dark earth-tone colors, but they have plenty of room and are clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A nice indoor/outdoor pool, hot tubs, free internet access, pool tables, and tennis and racquetball courts are some of the available amenities. We did not use the tennis or racquetball, but I believe the resort had equipment that could be rented.

Many shops and restaurants are within walking distance, although the hill out of the resort can be strenuous for those not used to walking or the altitude. August is one of the wettest time periods for Sedona, so try to get out in the mornings for any planned activities. During our week, the clouds began to roll in during the afternoon, with rain and/or thunderstorms that rolled through mid-afternoon. It usually gave us a great time to chill out at the resort before heading out for dinner. The evenings were usually very pleasant and rain-free.
