Food was exceptional! Every person you encounter has a smile and couldn't have been friendlier- they must've been trained, it was remarkable. Concierge excellent! Our accommodation was lovely, a suite w/ separate bedroom (2beds). A fold-out sofa was in the entry room for our 3rd person. Hiking, shopping, dining will definitely consider this one again.

Recently spent a 3 day weekend with my golf group including spouses. The Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain was fantastic. Great location, Great food, Great staff, Great accommodations, Couldn't have been nicer. We will be back soon and I hope often in the future. We've stayed at hotels and resorts all over the area and the Sanctuary is by far the best.... R. Andy

The Sanctuary on Camelback makes Paradise Valley a true Paradise

By: Triptek

Reviewed on: 31 Mar 2017

The Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain has become one of our favorite resorts after our recent stay. When we first saw our beautiful Suite, we asked if we could stay forever. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was very functional as well as sleek and modern. The deck had beautiful views of the valley. Our first night, we planned to go out, but chose to stay in and order room service from Elements - The excellent on site restaurant. The restaurant overlooks the infinity edge pool that has a great staff who take care of your every need. The Spa is peaceful and offers great massages and the fitness classes are great. Every staff member went above and beyond to make the guests happy. We can't wait to return.

Loved it. The staff is very nice and professional. They have all their staff use your name throughout your stay. Its a wonderful touch...makes you feel like were friends. The food in the restaurant is very good, would recommend breakfast, lunch or dinner. Has a lively night life scene. This is a peaceful place, yet its in the heart of Paradise Valley. My husband and I are looking forward to going back soon!

This is a home away from home to us. They pay attention to details and we are always treated like their only guest! The attention to detail down to everyone greeting us by name is truly amazing. When we come to Arizona there is no where else we would stay!

Good staff, but we would have preferred the Camelback main resort. They had a huge fitness convention t the Sanctuary so did not have the space we needed.
