Our favourite rooms
Party people should stay in one of the Pool-View Rooms, where they can check out the scene from a private balcony.
Two heated outdoor pools – you can guess the atmosphere of each from the name: Picante is livelier, with paddle-board yoga at sundown every Thursday ($45 a person), and live DJ sets and entertainment on weekends. For more sedate sun worship, settle into a cabana beside palm-lined Calma, which has a quirky little waterfall tumbling into it.
Visit the three-room Saguaro Spa for seasonal treatment packages, and wraps, facials and massages which use desert ingredients: sage, juniper, prickly pear and aloe. The beautiful lounge area is decorated with traditional Mexican folk art and serapes.
There are no bland earth tones here: bring your brightest colours to match the interiors. Pack plenty of reading material for your pool time.
The hotel has lifts and ramps, so all areas are wheelchair-accessible, as are the Signature King and City-View Suite Double rooms. Roll-away beds ($25 a night) can be added to all rooms with king-size beds and all suites.
Well-behaved pets can stay in any room for free. See more pet-friendly hotels in Scottsdale.
Kids of all ages are welcome, though frequent pool parties mean the hotel's better suited to older kids. A baby cot (free) can be added to all rooms. There are inflatables at both pools, and the shallower Calma is more child-friendly.
