Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch Reviews
STEEP.. Jun 25, 2011
Stayed there for 7 nights on a convention but end up with a standard room with very steep around 250$ + TAX. Kind of disappointed not up to the expectation probably good for vacationing.
Never used the pool but this resort is has a nice outside pool area but noisy in night.

Expensive Luxury Apr 11, 2010
I don't usually stay in crazy expensive hotels. I tend to spend my money on fantastic dinners and experiences. It's not that I don't enjoy the lap of luxury though. Every once in a while it is worth forking over the cash to stay somewhere sensational. The Hyatt at Gainey Ranch is just that - sensational. The Hyatt is a beautiful resort, with amazing grounds, a world class golf course, relaxing spa, and a hefty price tag.
Our room was a standard double bed room, with a pool/ golf view. The earthy tones and natural light coming from the patio screamed relaxation. My bed was by far the best hotel bed I have ever slept in. The linens were so cozy. The bathroom was nice with a lovely glass shower and tub. The room was a bit small from the price we paid, but the amenities and surroundings more than made up from the size of our room.
There is a concierge desk that I found extremely helpful. They hooked us up with a killer deal on a town car! The entrance and lobby of the hotel are amazingly beautiful. The real splendor lies outside though. There is a stunning courtyard with comfy furniture, fire pits, and outdoor heaters. The Gainey Golf club is just beyond the lake with beautiful red mountains as the backdrop. The views are stunning. Foot paths weave around the grounds and to the rental casitas. Past the courtyard is the 2.5 acre "water playground." There are 10 different lovely pools set amidst beautiful plant life including wonderful flowering cacti. The pools are all uniquely different. One pool has a volleyball net and there is a sand beach at the far end. Each pool has something special beckoning you in including waterfalls, grottoes, and a great water slide. Walking along the aqueduct was great. I took amazing pictures from the top. There is also an adults only pool and the biggest "hot tub" i have ever seen. The lawn chairs were very luxurious. Exploring the pool area was one of my favorite things about the hotel. In hidden nooks are crannies are cozy hammocks and cabana beds. Very romantic. The service is incredible. Fresh fuzzy towels are available around every corner, and hotel staff are quick with drinks and sandwiches. We spent most of our time lounging about at the pool, enjoying being waited on :)
The food is fantastic but pricey. SWB is a southwestern bistro that is so delicious. The outdoor patio looking out at the sun kissed mountains adds to the experience. There is also a great Italian restaurant, Alto, that has an amazing wine selections and singing servers!! You can also take a gondola ride, but I passed on this experience. At the pool there is a poolside cafe that serves lunch and drinks to pool goers! I had a cactus margarita that was so refreshing! Last, but certainly not least, there is a yummy sushi place called sushi centro. The Canyon Market offers Starbucks coffee in the morning and quick convenient store type bites.
Located just inside from the amazing courtyard is the lobby bar! We spent most nights enjoying some tequila with the business folks!!! On certain nights there is entertainment in the lobby. We saw a flamenco band and dancers which was a total unforeseen bonus to our stay. Outside at the pool there is a pool bar that is open seasonally. We stayed in January and were unable to enjoy the pool bar.
There was no expense spared at the spa. The beautiful spa is pricey, but I thought the service was WELL worth the price. I got a facial and hot stone massage. I was 100% relaxed and the technicians were amazing. My massage was heavenly.
All in all I think you get what you pay for at the Hyatt. There is an extra level of service you just can't find at other places. I enjoyed the extra details, though some people may find it to be overpriced.

This is a beautiful resort with a heafty price tag for a small room. The pool and grounds help to overcome the short comings of the accomedations. The food is delicious and you will be paying for every single bite. The Sunday brunch top in at a whopping $30 per adult and $15 for kids. For those of you thinking I will order a pizza and save a little money, not allowed!

Energized by the delicious aromas and activity coming from its open kitchen, SWB, a casual Southwestern bistro, offers wood-fired specialties featuring fresh seasonal ingredients. Relax and enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch indoors or out, set against a backdrop of the majestic McDowell Mountains. Cross over the bridge and through a courtyard to find the vibrant, convivial setting of Alto Ristorante e Bar. This comfortable Italian restaurant offers fresh and flavorful dishes with an emphasis on the season. Alto features its unique Formaggio & Salumi Cellar, a collection of Italy?s best artisanal cheeses and meats. An extensive selection of wines from around the world, with an emphasis on Italy, is cradled on two wine walls. Your evening is complete with singing servers and a gondola ride along the resort?s waterways. Room service is available 24 hours.
The beauty of the Southwest is reflected in the colors and textures of luxurious 400-square-foot Scottsdale accommodations that pamper you with one king or two double Grand Beds offering plush pillows, soft sheeting, and down blankets piled upon pillow-top mattresses. Balcony or patio views of the Sonoran Desert and resort amenities like robes, newspaper, and wireless Internet access are available.

Dive into our spectacular “water playground”’ for a refreshing and fun day in the sun. Spread over 2.5 acres of our Scottsdale AZ resort and surrounded by lush gardens, brilliantly colored flowers, whimsical stone animals and bronze statues, this desert oasis beckons one and all to jump in.
10 pools filled with sparkling waters offer a variety of experiences for guests of all ages. Kids will love zipping down the three-story waterslide emerging from the clock tower and spiraling into an 8 ½ foot deep pool. Swim through a Grecian-style Water temple to play a game of water volleyball or enjoy a Jacuzzi-style spa or cold plunge, with more than 40 waterspouts raining down gently into the pools and spas, as well as on the deck to keep sunbathers cool. Stroll along the aqueduct connecting a series of six pools and enjoy the cooling waters washing over your feet.
For quieter moments in the water, we offer a 4,400 square foot adult-only pool, where swimmers can enjoy the cascading waters of the Big Gun, a 20-foot high “thunderfall” that flows through an opening in a reflecting pool down to the swimmers below, or the softer Cascades, trickling over a three-level fall. Several “pools for two” let you feel as though you are in your own private water escape.
A unique highlight of our luxury resort in Scottsdale is our sand beach, the largest white sand beach in the area. Build a sand castle, then cool off in the adjacent beach pool, surrounded by 12-foot high glass crystal column fountains which are dramatically lit at night.
When not in the water, guests can relax on comfortable lounge chairs under shady umbrellas while enjoying refreshments from one of our two pool bars. For added convenience, Wi-Fi service is available if needed.
