Casino Del Sol

Casino Del Sol Resort

Review of Casino Del Sol Resort

Normally we are not big fans of casinos, but we loved Casino Del Sol Resort which is rated as one of the best Resorts in Arizona, but it's also one of the best in the US. The Resort has earned the Forbes Travel Guide Four Star Award, AAA Four Diamond status, Certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor, and the 2013 Wine Spectator award for the PY Steakhouse.

You'll find an award winning golf course, very reasonable rates, a friendly casino, seven restaurants, a beautiful pool complex, spa, fitness center, five bars, and good service.

Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain Golf Resort Review

The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain lives up to it's reputation as a AAA Five Diamond Award winner, it's Spa is rated as the #3 Spa in North America and the #1 Spa in Arizona, and the golf course has been listed as the Best Course in Arizona and 27th Best Course in the United States - how can you beat all that.

Golf Hole at the Lodge at Ventana Canyon

The Lodge at Ventana Canyon

This small 50 room boutique resort is outstanding with great food, tennis courts, swimming pool, and first class service plus two excellent Tom Fazio designed courses.

The Canyon Course is a typical Fazio course which will test every part of your game. In addition to some very fun and challenging holes the Canyon Course at The Lodge at Ventana Canyon is very scenic and in excellent condition.

The Mountain Course plays up and down the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains. This 18 is very scenic and home to the most photographed hole west of the Mississippi. What an enjoyable Fazio design.

Tubac Golf Resort

Tubac Golf Resort & Spa

Just south of Tucson, Tubac Golf Resort & Spa is one of those hidden gems with three interesting nine hole courses on a 500 acre historic ranch which was established in 1789. The Resort was discovered when a number of scenes from Kevin Costner's Tin Cup was filmed here - it's fun to relive some of the scenes from the movie.

Tubac Golf Resort's three nines are each a little different and unique - one plays through the cottonwoods and mesquite groves, another has a desert look and feel on the first few holes followed by tree lined fairways, and the third nine is the longest and most challenging and home to the Tubac Triangle and Train Wreck! Tubac Golf Resort has very comfortable oversized suites, two choices for good food, a great spa, tennis courts, and a pool. Make sure you visit the historic city of Tubac with it's quaint shops, good restaurants, and fun bars.

Ridge Course at the Westin La Paloma

Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa

Typical of all Westins that we have enjoyed, the Westin La Paloma offers unequalled service, good accommodations, excellent choices for dining, and in La Paloma's case excellent amenities including a fantastic pool area.

In addition to all of that, you'll find three very unique Jack Nicklaus signature nine hole golf courses each with their own unique personality and characteristics. The Ridge nine is the most scenic with lots of "wows" but you can't take your eye off the treacherous bunkers, deep grassy mounds and hollows, or vast natural areas if you want to score well. The Canyon nine is the hardest and will throw a lot at you - bring your "A game " if you want to score well on this fantastic nine holes. The Hills nine is regarded as the easiest but still has lots of forced carries, elevation changes, natural areas, and very challenging green complexes.
