My fiance took me to the Fairmont Princess Resort in Scottsdale for my birthday. When we first arrived, the place looked huge! I was very impressed on how big the vicinity was! Right when we arrived, we were greeted by the door guy, and pretty much any where we went around the resort. They guys driving golf carts to take us to our rooms. They have tennis courts, golf courses and a really nice spa. This is where they hold the PGA golf open and the ATP tennis tournaments! I was so excited since I was going to play tennis at the actual courts!
My fiance booked the casitas, which is one level above the normal hotels room and one level below a suite. Our room was huge, and the bathroom was very room. It had double sinks, a sectioned off toilet, a soaking tub, a WALK IN closet, and an open shower! The decorations is very southwestern with a hint of Spanish influence. We had our own swimming pool in our area. We actually went out and try to soak in some sun but was disappointed because our pool was pretty dirty!
After soaking in the sun we headed to the spa, this was so heavenly! I think it's the best spa facility I've ever been too! Well worth the money spent on it!
The next day we had breakfast near the main swimming pool and it was a much nicer pool. We decided to go there to swim instead of our own private pool. We were also pretty disappointed that they didn't take care of our pool, considering we paid so much more for it!
Overall, everything was good, the food, the service, the courts, and my favorite the spa. However, I really didn't like the fact that we spent so much more money for the casitas and our pool was pretty crappy! They really need to do something about that. I would come again, but I don't think I would pay for the casitas. www.fairmont.com/scottsdale.
