"An ideal summer stay for families," raves Frommer's, the Arizona Grand Resort is a AAA 4-Diamond desert property with activities for everyone. This expansive, all-suite hotel sits at the base of the South Mountain Preserve, a 10-minute drive from Phoenix.

The resort's on-site Oasis Water Park covers seven acres, and is one of the largest water parks in the United States. It is ideal for families, with a wave pool, three waterslides and a tubing river. Other property highlights include a challenging golf course (named one of the best places to play by Golf Digest), six restaurants and a fitness center and spa, where more than 45 weekly classes including Zumba and yoga are available. There's also a 20,000-square-foot athletics club on site, plus the neighboring nature reserve has more than 60 miles of hiking and biking trails.

All suites are spacious and include a private terrace and a mini or full kitchen. Most are spread across two rooms, with a separate living area and have oversized bathtubs. The views are over the golf course or the South Mountain Preserve. Villa Suites and guestrooms can be connected to create a two-bedroom apartment for families.

There's a daily resort fee of $49 per room plus tax, payable at the hotel. This provides access to the seasonal Oasis Water Park.

Venture through the Valley of the Sun with packages from top golf courses, Travel + Leisure-praised spas and swanky dining experiences.

I had a very hard time getting the hotel to horror the travel zoo package as the 80.00 credits were not apparent on the booking confirmation.

Other Comments
When we checked in, the front desk lady said we got a daily $30 credit for breakfast and a daily $50 credit for other resort activities and food items. When I checked out, the guy said I only got a total of $50 credit for my entire stay plus the daily $30 breakfast credit. I was a little annoyed with that as I over spent the second day to utilize the $50 daily credit i thought i was receiving. I even showed him the paper the lady gave me that proved that but he was pretty arrogant and took them from me and said it was wrong. Didnt offer any reconciliation to their error.

I think they need to offer easy online check in options for check in and check out! Lines are crazy long. Waiting an hour for checking in isn't my idea of vacation

Everything! The room was nice and comfortable and the water park was a big hit. I also liked how the location of the resort was close to everything in Phoenix.

Hotel staff was rude at check in. Water park was understaffed and the water provided at the water park for free was hot. The movie that was scheduled to play that night started more than an hour after announced. On July 24, they closed the slides and lazy river at about 11:30 so everyone was crammed into the wave pool.
