Alma de Sedona

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 30, 2005

Alma de Sedona was going to be the premier treat to ourselves on our trip to Arizona, but we ended up being disappointed in the long run, and felt we did not get good value for our money -- and plenty of it we spent here during a six-night stay.

Located below picturesque Thunder Mountain, the inn consists of adobe-style buildings on gorgeous property, and is on a quiet street in West Sedona. The suites we stayed in were large, but are beginning to look a little worn, with the frequent tourists that make that trip to see the famous Red Rocks of Sedona.

The main building where breakfast is served is decorated in a very tasteful mix of elegance and Southwestern rustic. The pool area is great, and is a nice place to watch the sunset, while eating the snacks and cold drinks that are set out every late afternoon. Breakfast is simple and very creative; though filling, it does leave you a bit of room to sample some of the local cuisine at lunch.

Unique Quality: As I said we were a little disappointed -- the rug in the first suite we stayed in (Romantic Reflections) had been shampooed a little too much, and looked worn, and second one also looked this way, with the additon of large grease-like stains. A large wardrobe held an 18" inch tv -- not really condusive to watching in such a spacious room. The wardrobe was designed for a 27" tv and this little tv looked strange and out of place. The bathroom is very nice, though, with a huge soaker tub for two. The decor of the suites were very nice and tasteful, though as you open the door the overpowering odor of Pine Sol greets you.

The pool, which was supposed to be open, was not, due to longstanding mechanical problems. When we mentioned it to the manager, he told us "it is not pool season around here". However, it we saw many happy bathers at the Days Inn pool down the road.

In both of the suites we stayed in ( we left to tour the Grand Canyon, then returned) there was a problem with the shower, where it would unexpectedly surge not hot, but SCALDING water to the point where my husband's back was blistered. To make a long story short, the manager -- we found out the actual owner of the property lives in New Jersey -- was not very helpful and uncaring and acted like we were a bother when we wanted to talk to him about it. We debated about returning, and decided to give them a second chance. On our return, the manager suddenly did a 180 and was falling over himself trying to alleviate the problem. We were puzzled by his Jeckyl and Hyde behavior until we met the owner, who likes to come to the property once a month to see what is going on, wandering around.

The owner was very concerned, and upon hearing our woes, ended up giving a 10% discount for our trouble. This, though, did not completely make up for the disappointment we experienced. Overall, the breakfasts were good, and the property is beautiful, and housekeeping was immaculate. We will not return, though, due to the manager's behavior

Poolside Sunset Views...

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

Alma de Sedona Inn is a wonderful place to stay while visiting Sedona. This is such a romantic Inn with all the natural beauty surrounding it (which can be seen from the rooms), the beautiful interior designs of each special room with fabulous names, the privacy, the fireplaces, delicious breakfasts, & the pampering.

Each room (12 of them) offers a king-sized bed, gas fireplace, telephone & answering machine, cable TV, CD player, Hair-dryer, coffee-maker, private entrance & private patio, plush robes, non-smoking environment, candles & bath salts, & eleven of the twelve rooms have two-person Jacuzzi tubs! (Whew!)

I also loved how spacious the rooms were; most of all, I loved the views of the Sedona red rock formations.

Some of the names of the rooms that I remember were: Athena, World Traveler, Journey's End, Casa Blanca, American Generation, Romantic Reflections, and Del Sol. They range in price from 180 to over 300 dollars. We stayed in Mary's Room with an iron bed; color scheme of blue, beige and gold; a loveseat, fireplace, & super views.

Unique Quality: They offer late afternoon appetizers, and it's a good time to join other guests and share ideas. The Pool is wonderful and is a super spot to watch the incredible sunsets.

They do not serve any alcohol (state law), but you are allowed to bring your own.

The breakfast is really something with fresh juices, hot-brewed coffee or tea, granola, yogurt and a special main course that changes each day. Recipes are shared if you wish.
