Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort Review

Enjoyed my stay here in Phoenix, Arizona while at a training for my job at the time.


Right out of the gate I was met with kindness and gained so much insight from our bell man. Also, this was the first time I have experienced customer service via text! Talk about keeping up with the times.


Picture of a catered meal with salmon, salad, pasta, cornbread, lemonade, cheesecake, and a cookie.

The food did not disappoint! Felt like I was eating like royalty! The catered meals had a variety of options at every meal. Aside from catering there are a couple restaurants on site, as well as a Starbucks (an interior kiosk).

There were so many things to do and see at the resort in and of itself. A sauna, more pools than you will probably ever go to in one stay, business space with free printing (so you can print your boarding tickets or anything else), a tennis court, golf courses, a spa, a gym, hot tubs, bell hop rides, lots of on-site parking, etc. Just wish I could have used more of the amenities like the sauna, which didn’t have the best hours for me to take advantage of it. It’s said that the sunset pool is the spot to go for the best view. There was partying going on over there, so I ended up not checking it out.

So much parking available and lots of walking between buildings, which I didn’t mind too much.


Photo of the shaded balcony from inside my room.

Loved that my room had a shaded balcony! Balconies are some of my favorite things to seek out when considering accomadations. The room had a quirky layout, in that the sink and vanity were set up outside of the bathroom. This was different than what I am used to but, not too hard to get accustomed to. There was a decent sized living area with no door to separate from the rest of the room. (Yet somehow, I managed to hit my ankle as I laid down to take a nap on the couch, which was a total bummer. I had planned to go to visit North Mountain that evening.)

I didn’t get to explore too much, but it is a pretty quiet and safe area. It is near North Mountain, North Mountain Visitor Center, Starbucks, Goodwill, Walgreens, a church, Dollar Tree, McDonald’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, and more. It’s a ways from the downtown Phoenix scene, so you will need to take a rental, rideshare, or public transportation there. Other attractions in the area are Lookout Mountain, North Mountain Park, Scramble, and Musical Instrument Museum.

The landscape was awesome! It was cool to see the different cacti, plants, and unique hues at sunset.

Final Takeaway

Would love to stay here again! Hopefully with more time to actually take advantage of all they have to offer!

So thankful that God allowed me to get away for this three-day training trip leading up to my birthday last year! I was well taken care of!

Have you been to a resort like this before (for a training or otherwise)? Tell me what your takeaways are! As always, I want to know what topics you would like to see me cover. Until my next blog post, hear, pray, go, and write what you have been called to do!

  1. Though you told me much about your Phoenix trip, it was neat to read your descriptions/ review of everything and see all of the pictures you took (especially of the tunnel, that looked so cool)! I’m equally glad that you got to get away then, and prayerfully you’ll get to go again (and bring me along😉) haha love you!
