Last month, my family had the privilege of staying at the Fairmont Princess Resort in Scottsdale, AZ. The resort is absolutely breath taking. It was the last weekend of the summer season, so we were able to take advantage of all the festivities that weekend. I’m so excited to go back next summer for another staycation, but I hope you will consider hanging out here if you are ever in town…yes, it was that nice!
Before I got y’all excited about the food, there are other great reasons to stay here. There is:
- a catch and release fishing pond
- a professional golf course (The Phoenix Open takes place here)
- a zipline
- a spa (I took advantage of this on my own and asked to go back for my bday)
- swimming pools
- clubhouse for the kids
- fireworks on the weekends during the summer
We swam all day both days and took advantage of one of the cabanas…a must in Arizona in the summer. The kids loved having a safe, shaded place to hang out when they needed a break. And the hotel set up a huge BBQ pit both days and grilled up some burgers and dogs for Labor Day. I don’t need to tell you how awesome the smell of burgers cooking on the grill smells while you’re hanging out in the pool! Oh my goodness….it was so good and they had all the picnic fixin’s too. No need to change out your swimsuit, just walk up, order, and eat! That was such a brilliant idea!
On our last day, my oldest took advantage of Bobcat Billy’s Clubhouse. She had a ton of fun playing games and making craft project and just hanging out with other kids her age. Hubbyman took the little guy fishing and I checked out the spa services. Everyone had a great time and I came back super relaxed. The spa services were a little pricey, but I’m worth it every once in a while, right?!?!?
One of the highlights was dinner at La Hacienda! The food was amazing! How about instead of a lot of talking…how about I just show you in pictures. ”Dine amid warm, Spanish architecture, wood-beamed ceilings, flagstone and beehive fireplaces, all accented by modern urban touches, new upholstery, lighting fixtures and a stunning main entrance showcasing the restaurant’s tequila bar.”
