Editorial review:

This amazing spot is located in the Sonoran Desert outside of Scottsdale and is great for golfers and non-golfers, alike. The couples massage at the Golden Door Spa is highly recommended. The grounds are tucked away, the views are gorgeous, and the casitas are lavish. The staff bends over backwards for guests and the food is exceptional.
