Rated 4 out of 5 by BW620 The staff and amenities pleasantly surprised me.
I arrived at this resort one day prior to my conference. My husband and I were able to enjoy the gym, which met both of our needs. We are looking forward to a return trip next year. I enjoyed going to the adult pool where I was able to relax with others that wanting the same thing, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BHamilMesa Enjoyed, again!
One of the most beautiful properties we've stayed at. It had been some time since our last visit and the remodeled rooms and grounds are beautiful. However, we did miss having the quail outside our room! Not a single sighting either mornings. Did you guys not renew their contract? ;)

The pool was great, it had a slide and a swim up bar! The food was very good, well prepared. Our room was very clean, only one robe for some reason. shower head was cool. Toilet is not designed for short people at all. The staff was very nice and easily available if needed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by shell50 remodeled rooms were nice
the pool is the reason my husband and I come there and bring my granddaughter who is 2, I noticed a lot of people that did not look like they were paying guests (no wristbands) and there were big kids in the kid pool and it was dirty and kids in the adult pool and spas.

Had to ask three times to get food and drink at the pool. Half-assed effort to clean tables by staff. This is a high profit area for you guys. Won't make the same mistake twice.
Next time, I will clean the table myself after getting the kids lots of McDonald's food.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LALD Check In Time
With a five star resort, when check in says 4:00 you should be able to be in your room before 5:00. We were not the only ones waiting in the lobby. Thought they could have offered maybe a free drink at the restaurant or something for the wait. That did not happen.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kate19599 The employees were all great
All of the personnel were very accommodating. We did have problems with our room. In one day the A/C leaked, later the TV didn't work and finally the shower wouldn't drain. All the problems were fixed but it was just not what I expected from a luxury resort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jallii9 Great Place to host a Meeting
I attended the Leading Change Conference last week and I must say ADE's choice of the La Paloma was an excellent one.
The hotel staff were friendly and efficient. My room was spacious and it contained the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on in a hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jules63 Very disappointed
This was my first visit and we had to wait 3 hours to get our room, no apologize or explanations. We final went to the manger and they gave us a room smaller than what we requested. again no reason we took the room as we were tired of waiting

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tanandrelaxed Best staycation yet
We have stayed at several AZ resorts taking advantage of their summer rates and found this to be the best value yet. From the room, pool,facilities and location everything was first class. We shall return.

I am concerned about how slippery it is to get out of the pool and walk back to our chairs or the restroom. I was really worried that one of us might slip and fall. There were 6 of us staying at the hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gsh1 Love the resort but..
Azul bar/restaurant is nice but the service is really slow. The servers spend more time around the bar chatting then being aware of their clients.
We were offered extra points for being a SPG member but due to our needs we wanted clean towels so we didn't choose the points and opted for housekeeping to clean our room. They gave us new towels/sheets but didn't clean our room, I have photos and wonder why we were even offered the extra points and denied them because we wanted our room cleaed.. when they didn't clean the room. Our trash was full, room service tray sat out way too long and we missed napkins/salt/pepper shakers etc all was left. with the photos I have, think we deserve the extra 500 points.
The service at the front drive is amazing!! Joe and Dexter when we pulled up remembered us and called us by name!! The went above and beyond to greet us make us feel as if we were family returning for a visit! They helped to us to over look the little things that were off. Room servers we amazing! We opted not to eat at Azul with some of the issues we endured so we ate in our room. They were prompt and polite.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CurtNE No attention to detail
Door man aggressively sought tip on two interactions. No room service menu and had to place a reminder call after 45 minutes. One towel. Dirty water glasses in bathroom.
Lobby was great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Topdog Great possibilities
No recognition of Preferred Starwood status. No newspapere or continental breakfast. Excessive charges I.e. $6 for a bottle of Poweraid at halfway house and $16 for a crappy box lunch. Very offensive.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tucson33 Rooms are average
Shower didn't drain, bath tub is small and the layout of the hotel is extremely inconvenient for the "amenities" they have.

Beside being located in an ideal location with gorgeous mountain views this hotel has so many amenities. The staff was very courteous and the food at Azul is superb.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MerH Lovely place, food over-priced
The Westin La Paloma is beautifully located with views of surrounding mountains. There is native-appearing landscaping that is quite beautiful and the pool looks amazing (I was there for a conference and didn't end up using it). Our room was clean and nice with a really comfortable bed. The staff were uniformly helpful and very polite. When I booked my room the rep went above and beyond to find me a deal and was super nice. Great to have the free shuttle to a very nice local shopping center. I am not a golfer so can't comment on that part.
My only issue was the food--it is very expensive, even for a resort, especially room service (about $80 for a pasta dish, a chicken dish, and 2 salads). This would have been ok if the quality was excellent but unfortunately was not--chicken over-cooked, salad dressing in a packet, pasta tasty but very simple, probably cost about $3 to make. Brunch tasty but also very expensive and generous gratuity included for a group of 3--frustrating when (1) we did the buffet and (2) our server disappeared and we had to go in search of someone to pay as we needed to leave for the airport.

The hotel and the location was beautiful. My only issue was the pool side service needs improvement. I did not get checked on near enough and had to wait too long for what we did order.

Ordered eggs benedict, orange juice and coffee at the restaurant. The English muffin was hard as a rock and the potatoes were overcooked. I.E. Excellent hotel, don't eat on property.

The walking trail in the early morning was memorable, full of desert wildlife.
