Guests at this 250-acre resort at the foot of Camelback Mountain can hike, stroll through the cactus garden, play tennis on 11 courts, or tee up at one of three nine-hole golf courses. "Friendly and professional staff treat you like royalty," but some complain pool and restaurant service can be "incredibly slow." There are eight bars and restaurants, from the formal Il Terrazzo to the casual new Relish Burger Bistro.
