This 4-star, family-friendly resort sits on 27 acres of tropical-inspired grounds and is loaded with tons of activities and room to relax. The River Ranch water area is fully equipped for a full day of water play, featuring various pools, lazy river and a large waterslide. Parents can enjoy a day of golfing or relaxation at the spa while the kids have a blast at the on-site day camp. Other recreation options include tennis, basketball and mini golf.  There are three on-site restaurants, including Rico’s American Grill and Slim Pickens, which both offer American cuisine and casual dining. Hole-In-The-Wall serves dinner and overlooks the pools and waterfall with a view of the mountains.

Guest rooms have a contemporary design, featuring neutral tones with pops of Southwestern accents. They are equipped with custom Hilton-designed beds and linens, flat-screen TVs, minifridges and coffee makers. For convenience, guests can skip checking in all together by opting for digital check-in and keys.

The highly regarded Desert Botanical Gardens is just a 20-minute drive from the resort, filled with colorful plants and flowers and various hiking trails. The Phoenix Zoo sprawls across 125 acres and is just a five-minute drive from the Desert Botanical Gardens. Camelback Mountain, another crowd favorite, offers views of both Phoenix and Scottsdale. There are also a handful of hikes around the mountain, some easier than others; trails are open from sunrise to sunset.

Love the resort. Staff works hard at making sure all your needs are met. Was very impressed with the breakfast vouchers, saved a lot of time not having to Look for a restaurant every morning.

Loved the resort, just wished the weather cooperated. It was cold and rainy during our visit. However, the staff, amenities, and room were more than expected.

Location was ideal.

The whole resort was run down and dated. The lazy river had stains on the floor of the pool and overall esthetics of all pools was poor.

We had a great time, the Hotel was wonderful and close to everything, we did rent a car which allowed us to visit sedona, grand canyon, Scottsdale and eat locally, it was perfect weather for us 60’s to 70’s and we were able to see snow up north. It was a great getaway, we had $20 breakfast vouchers at squaw peak hotel that could also be used to order off menu if we did not want buffer and day we had to miss breakfast due to a scheduled tour they applied the 2 vouchers $60 toward the 35$ daily room fee

This is an old hotel/resort. Our King Casita was really dated, furniture wise, carpeting, paint, etc. We would not return because of this. It worked ok for one night, but longer would have been too much.

Unfortunately, bad weather kept us from fully enjoying this resort. But the pools are great, breakfast is excellent ( just don’t get there shortly before the end of breakfast if you want the buffet; pastries run out), rooms are very accommodating, staff is receptive to your needs. Don’t hesitate to ask for a room change if there are any problems; it’s a huge resort and they’ll help you.

We had a large and remodeled suit. The water park was a lot of fun for our eleven year old son. This is a great place for families with children.
