Fodor's Review

This secluded hotel and conference center that appeals to golfers has a historic, rather than hokey, Western feel, with vistas of open prairie and an elongated bar reminiscent of a Tombstone saloon. Some rooms continue the theme with cowhide headboards, tepee bed canopies, or whimsical bordello furnishings. Most guests come for excellent golf, splendid views, and privacy.

Food is HORRIBLE

I ate at the restaurant on 9/4/07. The "food" was pathetic. Orange juice was colored water. Bacon seemed like it was cooked the day before. FROZEN pasteries. Everything is frozen hospital style food. Nothing fresh.

Great Sales Meeting Destination

We bought out the resort with 170 rooms and had the best ever sales meeting. No other people around and we had run of the house. Great staff and food!!

Awesome time!!!

We stayed at the resort this past week. We had a magnificant time. Our room was spacious and well decorated. The food was great and room service got it to us hot and in a timely fashion. Our Bellman Jesus was very knowledgable about the area and assisted us to our room. The pool was wonderful as it was chilly outside but the water was heated. The massage was excellent and well relaxing. I can not wait to get back to Rio Rico and this hidden jewel

in the desert.
