Went for my wife's birthday Dec 2-6. Had a fantastic time, exquisite service and experience in the Golden Door Spa. I don't understand the negative experiences of others as below. It does seem management is trying very hard, has ironed out the probs described earlier this year.

I was very pleased with th Boulders Resort. After reading some reviews, I was a little concerned about the locations of the casitas. But when we arrived and saw how easy it was to get around I was relived. The walk from our casita to the main lodge was less than 3 minutes and the scenery is beautiful. Before we left our room we would call the bell captain and when we arrived at the desk our car was there,waiting for us. If it was night, or we did not feel like walking, they will promptly pick you up in a golf cart shuttle and take you to your waiting car. I can imagine that wait times for these services could be longer in the busier season so just allow more time. The golf course is just a shuttle bus drive away, less than a 5 minute drive. There are 2 course, both meander through the desert and offer outstanding scenery of the Boulders and the surrounding mountains. The rooms were clean and large with a sitting area and small balcony. As another revview mentioned, the rooms could use an update, but certainly our room was acceptable. Perhaps an upgrade of the televisions would help, but who goes to the Boulders to watch TV. All in all this resort deserves the accolades it has received and is a definite must stay.

This resort was truly one of a kind. From the Casita to the food it was awesome. It has beautiful casitas that give you alot of privacy and beautiful views. All the restaurants were wonderful. Would definetly go back.

My husband and I were in Arizona for a conference at the Westin for several days, from there we went up to the Grand Canyon for a couple of days and came back to The Boulders for three nights. However, we enjoyed The Boulders so much we extended our stay to five nights. We had a basic room, but for the price was much nicer than any Ritz Carlton we have stayed in for much more money. The staff was great, the grounds were lovely and the Golden Door Spa was heavenly. We actually saw three bobcats. What a thrill. We went horse back riding and we enjoyed the little town of Cave Creek also. Everyone was helpful with whatever we needed and very prompt. We would love to go back. We did feel that it would have been nice to have more restaurants at night, but you did have the shopping center near by and Cave Creek also. The pool area was nice with the water trickling down a large boulder......... very relaxing.

We just spent four nights on the golf package at The Boulders and we can't recommend it. The property is gorgeous, but the entire resort needs a face-lift. The bathrooms look very late-80's. The TV in the room was so small and far from the bed that you couldn't use the remote unless you walked to the end of the bed -- plus just a VCR player, no DVD. The rooms are pretty bland and dingy, and that goes for the whole decor everywhere. The golf courses are gorgeous, but the pace of play was awful. They're filled with corporate outings and bad, slow resort players. The front desk people were incredibly rude and unhelpful. The two positives were the Spa, which is great, and the food overall was excellent.

They need a face-lift and new, better management and staff, and it would be a world-class resort.
