Sharing one of the best resorts in Arizona today! Our weekend at the Phoenician Resort Scottsdale Arizona was so much fun. So happy to beat this Arizona heat in their gorgeous pools and restaurants!
Best Resorts In Arizona
With the kids having such a short summer we decided to do a really fun “staycation” at The Phoenician Resort instead of heading to California like the rest of Arizona does 🙂 We walked outside of the resort after checking in to see this beautiful view. Took my breath away knowing we get to play here for the weekend. Many people asked if it’s a good place to take the kids. My answer, yes it is! So many beautiful pools to choose from. A fun waterslide and splashed that my kids loved.

We loved the Flight of The Phoenix demonstration where you learn about beautiful Arizona birds. Pax was obsessed with this beautiful own named Archimedes. The boys also loved the Koi Fish Feeding where the giant Koi fish would flock. Quite a fun sight. So many other activities to choose from too, really something for everyone.

Their rooms are clean, classy and beautiful with lovely views. Huge bathroom with a great tub.
Relish Burger Bistro, The Phoenician Resort
After we unpacked our bags, we strolled over to Relish Burger Bistro. I was really excited to try this with the family.
My oldest son ordered this Orange Float….it was amazing. I ordered that delicious wedge salad loaded with blue cheese and bacon.
My husband ordered the Cobb Burger on a Whole Wheat Bun and I ordered the Cowboy Burger on the Right on a Brioche Bun. Oh my goodness you guys, these burgers were amazing….and look at that presentation?! A+ 🙂
The highlight of our dinner was definitely the do it yourself s’mores brought right to the table. I mean, how fun is that?! The kids thought it was the coolest thing ever…and so did I, lol!
Poor Pax was not happy he didn’t get a skewer, ha! Don’t worry, he got plenty of marshmallows to snack on.
The Phoenician Pools Are Amazing!
What a treat to enjoy a pool day in one of the Phoenician Cabanas stocked with cold drinks, sunscreen and an Evian mister! (my boy’s favorite) Felt spoiled for sure.
We spent lots of time at the splash pad area with the kids. Pax loved this big water gun 🙂
Always good times on a waterslide when it comes to my boys. Pax even loved going down on dad’s lap.
More beautiful pool views and snacks. All delicious!
Il Terrazzo Brunch at Phoenician Resort
Sunday brunch was out of this world at Il Terrazzo. So much beautiful food to choose from.
Everywhere I walked there was beautifully prepared dishes for the taking. Yogurt parfaits, fresh green juice shots, waffles, omelet bar, hot casseroles with bacon, sausage and potatoes. Seriously the list goes on and on. I was so frustrated when I was full, because I wanted to try everything, lol!
Two of my many plates.
Another highlight for us is The Phoenician Ice Cream Parlor and Cafe. We visited often. Breakfast, lunch, pastries and ice cream. Can’t beat that!
Pax was so excited for his Mint and Chip Ice Cream Cone.
So many amazing memories were made at The Phoenician. So happy to have spent the weekend with my family. Looking forward to planning another visit in the future.

Appreciate it for sharing your terrific webpage
Much thanks! It is an very good web page!.
What a fun vacation and your photos are gorgeous! So much to do and the food looks amazing!!
This looks like the best place to take the family!! And those burgers have my stomach growling!
I am heading to Scottsdale this fall and the Phoenician is on my potential list of places to stay. The resort looks beautiful and I love the s’mores!
My husband’s family is in Mesa/Scottsdale and that’s where we always stay when we visit. But I’ve been dying to visit the Phoenician for a while and I think next time we visit AZ that’s where we’re staying! 🙂
How fun! We lived in Scottsdale for many years, but never did a staycation at any of the resorts. This is making me kick myself. And I love, love that tabletop smore set!
Those burgers are enough to make me want to come. Looks beautiful! Would love to check out this hotel.
We keep talking about visiting Arizona/Phoenix for the first time. Definitely need to look into staying here!
What a fun s’mores presentation! Love seeing all the smiley faces in your family 🙂
What a fun looking place and just look at those burgers!
That place is ah-mazing! The slide-my boys would love that.
Hmm, something we are going to have to consider next year when baseball is in their full throes of spring training and exhibition games are going on.
Your staycation looked amazing! I want to travel with you and have you order for me at every meal!!
So, funny question… The Resort looks very kid friendly of course! Would you also recommend it for a kidless getaway, or say a family who loves kid-friendly, but the husband also likes to be able to get away from all of the chaos at down times? 😉 Thanks!
p.s. Wonder if you could recreate a recipe for that salad you are that looked similar to a wedge?? Yum!!
Such a fun family vacation!!
