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 seven 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. 

Make the most of Scottsdale with deals for spa days, gourmet dinners and popular shows.

The room was good for the money, however, there was trash on the floor from the previous people. Too much light in the room at night. The radio on the bedside table was like a high powered flashlight all night. Had to put a towel over the top of it to dim the light. The two of us had breakfast in the hotel restaurant. Ordered the buffet. Was amazed when we got the bill as the restaurant had added a 20% tip to the bill. Tipping is discretionary, and 20% for a self-service buffet! We did not go back.

The staff in the pool/lounge area. There were adults and teenagers throwing frisbee and football around the area without a care of who they hit and staff did nothing. I was in the pool with my 20 month old and I couldn't enjoy being in the pool because I was busy looking around and making sure the frisbee and football was not goin to hit my son or me. i felt very unsafe!!!

If you like to gamble this is the place to be. Don't expect to have a lot of options for your Friday or Saturday night. The only option is the pool or the casino. The casino does offer varieties of places to choose from.
