I stay often at the Sanctuary. It's location is the best in AZ. The only other folks who have the view that Sanctuary has own a home in Paradise Valley. I stayed in the mountain suite. Elements in an amazing restaurant. The food is prepared so well. One can do vegan here very easily. Service is top notch. I did...

Sanctuary at Camelback is the perfect retreat...the service is impeccable, the spa was delightful, the restaurant is delicious and the accommodations are amazing! Can't wait to go back! We had a slight delay in checking in because our casita wasn't ready and the front desk offered us a resort credit for the inconvenience! They were so concerned with our satisfaction...

You know how most hotels don't have any plugs for chargers and you get on your hands and knee to find them? or lights that just are impossible to find and turn on/off? These seem minor til they become major aggravations. HOWEVER, the real draw here is the spectacular setting, ultra private and beautiful rooms, wonderful food and extra attentive...

This was my second visit to The Sanctuary and my husband's first. As always, everything was amazing - the accommodations, the grounds, the restaurant, the service, the spa, the tennis, the parking attendants, the pool service, etc. I really cannot suggest any improvements and that is rare.

Stayed at the Sanctuary for a girlfriends getaway weekend. The hotel was clean, roomy but a bit pricey for the location. The restaurant food was great, pool area is small and staff is very strict on cell phone use. We were asked more than once to not use the cell phone in the pool area. For anyone who likes walking...

The property, the people, the food, the views, everything I touched, tasted, and looked at was awesome. I can't say enough about this place. If you book a massage, ask for Nicole, she is unbelievable. If you want to relax and have the money to do it. Do it here.
