5 Reasons Scottsdale Camelback Resort Should Be Your Home Away From Home

When traveling with family for longer than a day or two, having plenty of space for everyone is imperative. Sometimes you just need to stretch your legs further than the next bed over. The Scottsdale Camelback Resort will actually allow you to head into another room. Or take it outside for one of many recreational activities.

In fact, I can give you 5 very good reasons why the Scottsdale Camelback Resort should be your home away from home your next time in the area. I am pretty sure you will agree that the size, location and amenities alone are ideal for travelers. Let’s take a walk through the grounds and our favorite features of the resort…

Scottsdale Camelback Resort Studio Loft

Sleeps 4+

We have a family of 8 and typically travel with at least 5 of us. If you have a large family, you are probably aware of the fact that finding places that sleep more than 4 comfortably is not easy. But, at the Scottsdale Camelback Resort you have options. Choose from a Studio with a Loft or a 2- or 3-bedroom villa. Starting at 700 sq. ft. of living space, you know there will be room for everyone to move around and feel comfortable. Watch our daughter’s tour of the villa starting around 3:23 in the following video:


When traveling, food costs can often take most of a family’s budget. Having a kitchen space to cook your own meals means more budget for doing fun activities and attractions. Not to mention, not only will you find a kitchen with a stove top, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator, but there are also washer and dryers in each unit. This was definitely a game changer for us!

Private Balcony

Okay, this was actually one of our favorite features within the villa. Being able to sit out on the balcony and enjoy the view, stargaze and simply enjoy a simple meal was fabulous. It’s small but private. And we thoroughly enjoyed it as a family.

Outdoor Recreational Activities

When I say there was plenty to do, I really mean it. We found new things to do each day and hardly found a reason to leave the resort. Let me give you a small rundown of what your family can find at the Scottsdale Camelback Resort:

  • Putting Green
  • Mini Golf
  • Children’s Playground
  • Sand Volleyball
  • Horseshoes
  • Lighted Tennis Courts
  • Fitness Center
  • Outdoor Grillls
  • Racquetball Court

Of course, these are in addition to the heated pool, children’s wading pool and outdoor jacuzzi. And if you simply want to take a walk, there is a great trail around the property that even has outdoor fitness stations along it. Oh! Want to watch a movie? Check the daily activity sheets for movies in the Sonoran Theater! You really don’t need to leave the resort once you have arrived!

Resort Style Dining

Although you have a kitchen and outdoor grills for cooking up your own meals, The Grille offers a variety of dining options as well. Kick off your day with the Roadrunner Breakfast and then come back for the daily dinner special. Whether you want a burger, salad or even fish & chips, The Grille can serve it up for you!

All in all, we had an incredible stay. Our girls didn’t want to leave and they still talk about it. From the daily outdoor fun we shared to the whirlpool tub in our villa, they were completely won over by the resort. They even took a break from swimming to enjoy craft time! I can’t say as though I blame them. The Scottsdale Camelback Resort has definitely become one of my favorite places to stay and I hope we can find our way back soon!
