Dating from 1936 and set amid neatly manicured lawns and gardens, this classic old Arizona resort was completely remodeled and expanded in 2009. The relaxing retreat looks a bit like a Mexican village, with narrow pathways winding between buildings. Guest rooms are in both hacienda-style adobe buildings, tucked amid cacti and orange trees, and newly constructed adobe-style two-story buildings. Rooms feature a mix of contemporary and southwestern furnishings; many units have beamed ceilings or fireplaces, and some have patios and tile floors. The small pool has a good view of the Catalinas. The new casitas are definitely the nicest rooms here.
