A nice luxury hotel but was quite short staffed during the winter holidays which led to some disappointments. The concierge was on vacation (on vacation during a vacation week!) and the front desk staff seemed to have limited knowledge about the surrounding area. The restaurant was also low on staff, leading to 1 customer (not me) walking out angrily without...

Wow, what an excellent experience at the Amara. From beginning to end, our one night mini-vacation at this hotel was exceptional. This hotel must have the best staff ever, as we received above and beyond service from everyone working during our stay. The hotel is configured in a horseshoe around a lovely courtyard and beautiful saltwater infinity pool on the...

Partly by reading the reviews on TA I decided to stay at Amara for 3 nights, and I wish we had gone for the gold and stayed at L'Auberge de Sedona next door. The people at Amara were very nice, but the hotel itself does not warrant a resort and spa label -- and the $20 resort tax underscores that....

The view of the red rocks was beautiful and we were upgraded to a suite which was very nice. The Spa was not exceptional but was relaxing. The resort was very small and was not very spacious. One could almost describe it as crowded. The pool was nice and the area was convenient. The wine reception didn't have very good...

My husband and I booked a get away to the Amara Resort. It couldn't have been better. Awesome yoga class in the morning to start the day. So many beautiful places to hike nearby. Home to a wonderful salt tub. The food at the Amara was so good we never went anyplace else to eat in 3 days. Highly recommend.

I stayed at the Amara just before Thanksgiving and it rained the whole time we were there 3 straight days.
