Arizona Grand Resort & Spa Review

We fall in love with Arizona more each time we visit. The colors of the desert set such a beautiful mood for a family vacation that we are already planning a visit back. It was that wonderful!

It also helped that we were staying at such a great family resort, the Arizona Grand Resort & Spa.

When we checked in, I was in awe of the views. It is located in the heart of Phoenix, making it a very convenient place for both out of town visitors and locals taking a staycation, but it still feels like you are far off the beaten path.

You all know I love my morning cup of coffee… and they have Starbucks coffee right in the lobby… and a coffeemaker in the rooms. So I already knew I was going to love this place!

The biggest thing that sets this resort apart from the rest is that they have a HUGE water park just for guests staying at the resort!

This was the view of the water park from the front of our suite! We pretty much threw down our bags and headed straight there!

The Oasis water park has a wave pool, lazy river, huge slides and wonderful cabanas!  private cabana

We had a cabana for the day, and we had my sister-in-law and niece come and visit us there.

Luxury resort

I highly recommend a cabana rental. They keep you cool, act as a home base, and the food service is the perfect addition. We enjoyed a huge fruit platter that was chilled and totally cooled us off, and buckets of water with a plate of fresh cookies! It was awesome!

After spending the day at the water park, we headed back to our luxury suite. It had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, dining area and family room. I was in love with the balcony off our room and I enjoyed my coffee there each morning.

This is the girls' bathroom. Ours was three times the size and had a walk in closet too! It felt more like a home than a hotel. Look at this walk in shower!

The resort also has an adults only 21+ swimming pool, and a huge exercise facility. There are rooms for cross circuit workouts, yoga and so much more!

And a ton of dining options on site. We had dinner at Aunt Chilada's one night. That name is awesome right? Enchiladas = Aunt Chilada's. Love it! The food was delicious and fresh. They even have a special menu with vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options!
