The Boulders Waldorf Resort or Four Seasons Scottsdale at Troon North?

Jump to last reply

My girlfirend and I are considering a six day trip to the desert for a little break from the 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. routine. We want to find a place where we can lay around a pool, soak up some great desert scenery nd play three or so rounds of golf. She'll also want some spa treatments I'm sure and good food is a must.

After doing a little poking around on the web, I am focusing on The Boulders Waldorf in Carefree and the Four Seasons at Troon North in Scottsdale. The Four Seasons certainly looks great but it comes with a bigger price tag. The Boulders looks pretty nice and certainly seems like it will be easier on our wallets but I've heard that the decor, furnishings, landscaping, etc. have become a little "tired." We've stayed at Ritz Carltons and other upper end resorts and am concerned that the Boulders might be a bit of disapppointment.

Can anyone who has recently been to one or both of these resorts help out? Shoud I consider the Phoenecian, Camelback or somewhere else? New Mexico?

We're hoping to go next week so if you any advice, please write fast! Thanks in advance for any help.
