Located an hour away from Phoenix and just 30 minutes from Scottsdale, the AAA 4-Diamond We-Ko-Pa Resort & Conference Center is set within the Sonoran Desert with views of the Red Mountains beside the Verde River. The name We-Ko-Pa means "Four Peaks" in the Yavapai native language in reference to the nearby landmark, and the resort carries the cultural inspiration of the Yavapai Tribe throughout the property as seen in the design details. 

Spacious guest rooms feature modern furnishings and decor with neutral colors reflective of the desert surroundings (think brown, cream, red, green), plush bedding, marble bathrooms and complimentary Wi-Fi. Upgrade to a suite to get more space, jetted tubs and a balcony.

Dine in one of five restaurants including Ahnala Mesquite Room, which serves up Southwestern cuisine and offers views of the Four Peaks Mountain. Other dining options include the We-Ko-Pa Grille, which overlooks the golf courses, a New York-stye deli, a buffet, a cafe, an Asian noodle and sushi spot and a burger restaurant.

The resort’s two golf courses at the We-Ko-Pa Gold Club earn accolades from Golf Digest, Golfweek and as some of the state’s best. Both offer gorgeous views of the mountains and valleys. The Amethyst Spa offers a full treatment menu as well as 24-hour fitness center so you can get your workout in. Relax in the outdoor swimming pool or in one of two whirlpools offering views of the surrounding mountains and refuel at the poolside cafe and bar after a swim. Kids will also love the children's pool area. Head to the resort's 24-hour casino, which offers keno, bingo, poker, slots, blackjack and more.

We were there on a weekend and a few days during the week, the weekend was great a lot of fun, music at the pool, bar at the pool, during the week just the opposite, everything closed, no pool bar no music, we felt like we were forgotten about just because they were not busy. The casino was too Smokey for us to go into and eat or gamble so we missed out on that. Otherwise we had a good relaxing time.
