I agree that the Los Abrigados has a great location. It is essentially across the street and down the block from the Hyatt. And staying at Los Abrigados allows you to wander around a whole bunch of shops in the Tlaquepaque center.I actually love Los Abrigados because of the location. It's right in town, similar to the Hyatt. I also really like Arroyo Roble - this trades in RCI. The units are a bit dated, but they are large 2 bedroom units in town. We used to go to Sedona every summer. We stayed mostly in Sedona Summit and Arroyo Roble. The Hyatt is really nice - I just always traded at least a year in advance, and the Hyatt units tend to show up closer to checkin.
Are the fees levied on Diamond owners as well as exchangers?We also like the Ridge. The golf course views and Bell Rock views are so enjoyable. The only thing we don’t like is the additional fees Diamond charges. We enjoyed Arroyo Roble as well. The creekside setting is very soothing and calming.
This reminds me of one year in the suburbs of Chicago - the cicadas/locusts only show up once every 17 years. I'm don't know how often they appear in Sedona. But when they appear, they are everywhere!Stayed at Arroyo Robles in our first ever exchange 32 years ago. Back then it was fantastic as we were there with our 6 yr old daughter and 4 month old son. Drove there from Los Altos,California. Besides the few and beautiful grounds I recall 2 things.
One was the 8 or 9 skunks every morning in the parking lot and the staff telling us to just freeze and they would leave and not bother us. You should have see us not move for about 10 minutes each morning.
The other was the noise in the trees and an ugly bug on our door screen. Both due to cicadas which we hadn't ever heard of or seen before. The one on the screen we brought to the office. They told us they were harmless and what we brought them is just the shell they leave behind. When we said how ugly it was they said if we thought that was ugly you should see life ones? We don't get them in our area.
