"No Chance of Boredom Here! "

NOTE:  This review is based on an evening visit to the resort, we were not guests staying at the hotel.

My family stopped by the Hyatt for an after dinner drink during a stay in the Scottsdale area.  My husband had been to the resort before and really wanted the rest of us to see it.  I have to say I was very impressed.  Here's why:

- A clean stylish landscape with multiple pools.  All were lit with cool colorful lighting giving a festive mood to the place.
- An organized and fun s'mores activity for families drew lots of kids out to a lawn area where lots of gooey marshmallows and chocolate were being shared.
- The dining options in the place were active, lively, and filled with laughter and conversation.

We claimed a couch in the Center Stage Bar area and enjoyed live entertainment.  Our 11-year-old son even got up and danced near where we sat and no one batted an eye!  He elicited a lot smiles though.

I liked this place, this short visit made me want to come back and experience the place as a guest.

"Relaxing property with fabulous pools!"

The Hyatt Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch is a beautiful oasis in sunny Scottsdale that is ideal for a family destination vacation, but close enough to Scottsdale and Phoenix for local excursions. My family managed to escape the brutal U.P. winter for a few days in Sedona, followed by an even warmer stop in Scottsdale before returning to the frigid north.  We parked upon our arrival and spent two days straight enjoying everything the resort had to offer!

We noted immediately that the front was rather unassuming; but, on the inside, it opened up to a beautiful oasis of pools, restaurants, and cozy places to relax amidst the cactus gardens and palm trees. Our check-in was friendly and memorable, thanks to the complimentary margaritas we adults received--now, that's the way to kick off relaxation! The front desk staff was well prepared to answer questions about the property, the amenities (such as cribs and childcare options), and offer dining suggestions, as well. They also provided a calendar of events for the activities of the week, which was incredibly useful, featuring kids' activities and contests, nature programs, musical events, and the like.

Our family of five (kids aged 8, 6, & 6) checked into our adjoining rooms, which were spacious, bright, and comfortable, each with a private balcony overlooking one of the secluded lawns on the property.  Each room had a refrigerator, coffee maker, and plenty of space to either spread out or get down to work.  As usual, our kids spent no more than a few seconds setting up camp in their room before begging to race down to see the pools. We were all blown away by the expansive pools linked together on the back of the property--some 2.5 acres' worth, featuring a sandy beach and a waterslide!  The sandy beach pool was, of course, zero entry and would be perfect for a family visiting with very small children. The other pools featured fountains, a large hot tub in the middle, and a depth of no more than 4 feet (which some might find a drawback). There is also a large, gated adult pool area with a hot tub of its own that was completely separated from the family area. Large towels were readily available in the pool area and though we visited during a busy week, there was no shortage of lounge chairs available all around the pool and beach area.

My kids spent the first few hours at the pool going down the waterslide again and again that made for some seriously hungry kids! Fortunately, we had access to the Regency Club that provided not only a European-style breakfast each day, but snacks, drinks, appetizers, and desserts throughout the day, as well as computer access and a nice selection of family games.  I would absolutely recommend families pay the premium to use the Regency Club during an extended stay, as it made quick snack breaks convenient and unstressed.

While my kids were exhausting themselves on the waterslide while my husband supervised, I was fortunate to be able to experience the magical atmosphere of the Spa Avania on-site (reviewed separately).  Suffice it to say, I received THE BEST massage of my life from my masseur, Denny, and have vowed that I absolutely will return to relive that experience and take in more of the spa amenities! (I'm thinking a "girls trip" is in order!) If you needed childcare during a spa day, you could definitely check out the "Camp Hyatt" offerings for the day, too. We saw several of the child caretakers on site throughout our stay with small groups of kids and were continually impressed with their friendly and patient manner with a wide variety of ages of children. I wouldn't hesitate to give the program a try in the future.

Our other dining experience on the property was at the SWB Southwest Bistro (reviewed separately), which features a "For Kids By Kids" menu, available all day.  We really enjoyed the outdoor dining areas at SWB, which allowed us to take in the beautiful weather!  There are a few other dining options on site, as well.  The Canyon Market offers fresh deli-style sandwiches, salads, snacks, coffee, and ice cream (all to-go).  Additionally, Noh offers Japanese specialties and sushi, Alto is a beautiful Italian restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating, and the Water Garden serves light foods poolside.

We also took in a Venetian gondola ride the last evening of our stay, which featured a serenade from our gondolier! (If you dine at Alto, the ride is complimentary). While my husband and I enjoyed the experience, the kids didn't quite understand why we were being serenaded as we floated in the dark. Oh, well!

Overall, we found the feeling of the Hyatt Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch to be one of a peaceful, relaxing oasis.  It is well appointed, spacious, and casual.  The staff was friendly, easy-going and welcoming to children and families.  The pools....oh, the POOLS!...were the true highlight for our family.  As we visit Arizona yearly, we definitely plan to make a return stay to the resort to decompress before returning home.

For families planning a visit, here are our main recommendations:
- Consider paying the premium to access to the Regency Club, which makes breakfast, snacks, drinks, desserts, and a quick break from the pools very convenient.

- Be sure to pack flip-flops and something to wear to/from the pools, as your room may be a bit of a walk from the pool area.

- Be sure to get a copy of the weekly activities calendar to help plan your schedule--we learned about lawn games, swim races, a concert, and a nature program, all going on the two days we were there.

*This review is based on a complimentary visit to the Resort and Spa and SWB restaurant. I received no other compensation and these opinions are entirely my own.
