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, plus 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 seven restaurants including Ahnala Mesquite Room, which serves 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-style deli, an Asian restaurant and a burger joint.

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 hot tubs that offer 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 24-hour casino next door, which offers keno, bingo, poker, slots, blackjack and more.

Unfortunately, our $10/day F&B credit was not properly explained to us. We understood that the Resort was holding $40 against our credit to cover purchases so when we checked out we ended up leaving with a $40 unused credit on our account at the Resort. Yet we ate dinner at the lovely restaurant on site and and ate breakfast in the Casino every morning. It's unfortunate but a lesson learned.

We were not informed construction was going on at this time and the first morning of us being there were awoken by construction machines and unfortunately they hit a water line to cause a water outage for a few hours.

Stayed 2 nights. On the first morning, they shut down the water & we couldn't use ALL bathrooms & shower. My wife & I had out to public restrooms in another Hotel. On the 2nd night, hotel had water going off & on thru out the night (noise). Guests could not use toilets in their own rooms. Upon checkout, they gave us $25 credit for the inconvenience. While the gesture was there, the amount was not correspondent to the inconvenience caused.
