My wife and I have been an owner since 1991.This used to be a nice resort, but has gone significantly downhill since Diamond Resorts took it over. In their typical efforts to cut costs they have made this resort undesirable for the typical traveler. Our maintenance fees are ridiculous and continue to climb. There are much better places to stay in the Sedona area. I am dissatisfied with Diamond Resorts and unless significant improvements are made we will be placing our unit on the market.

My family of 4 recently stayed at the resort. My daughter is in a wheelchair so the resort held a room on the bottom floor easily accessible from the parking lot. The resort was decorated with over a million lights for the holidays, it was beautiful and a lot of fun for the kids to go looking at lights. Free of course for guests. The resort served hot chocolate along the way and had a fire pit ready with warm chilli!
The resort is in a great location in the heart of Sedona near uptown for shopping, more restaurants ( if you choose not to eat at the resort.) and jeep tours.
The staff is friendly and the rooms were very clean. I would highly recommend!
I exchange into Sedona the end of April every other year--the last two times at Los Abrigados. Last year my unit was right on the road and I asked for a change and received it. Traveling alone it is a great place to be. It is dark and small and does not have the great hot tubs like in the villas but you cannot beat the location. I love it and will continue to return. Will try to exchange in or buy soon.
I have been going to this beautiful place for 15 years now I love it It's not busy like some of these newer places can be If you like sedate quite and clean this is the place for you all the surounding are beautiful and the vibes are unbeliveable great food great people a sense of calmness
Grounds and staff very nice. the concierges are terrific especially Jakie but all of them. The spa is good with great instructors. The timeshare units are like a slum. they feel old, dark and dirty. I had a bug in bed with me one night. The bathrooms are small and disgusting and we were told we had a refurbished room. That's a joke. I would not stay here again because of the rooms. Parking at night is also very difficult. there are not enough spaces. They are supposedly building new beautiful units. How does that work if you don't take care of what you already have??? Buyers and traders beware. if you are accustomed to staying in a timeshare that rates 7 or above on a 1-10 scale don't stay/buy here. It is about a 5 in the units. We stayed there in Oct. 2007.
I just returned from a one week stay at this resort and I can confirm that every positive thing that you read here about this resort is true. The whole atmoshpere of the resort is like none other. the pools are well heated, the resort is clean, the units are small, compared to some that we've stayed in, but very well kept and roomy enough. The views and resturant ,pools,exercise room,in the resort are fantastic. I cannot imagine anyone not liking this resort.
This is a gorgeous place, walking to great shopping, max scenery and ammenities.
We visited Los Abrigados this past summer for the first time and loved it so much that we bought a timeshare there. We had a wonderful one bedroom unit that had a balcony that looked out at Snoopy Rock. We loved the pool area, exercise facilities, beautiful grounds, and the 3 great 5 star restaurants at the resort. We could walk to Talaquepaque and enjoyed being able to go to many day trips in the surrounding area--- train ride in the Verde Valley, Jerome, Flagstaff, and the Grand Canyon. The resort is very clean and the concierge staff is extremely helpful and pleasant to work with. An added benefit was the constant symphony of birds. Breathtaking views are everywhere and the hiking is awesome.
Just returned from our first stay in Los Abrigados and it was very memorable. You are in the center of everything in Sedona. The resort was beautiful, and lush - the grounds attract a lot of birds. We highly recommend Savannah's Restaurant in Sedona for a special dinner. Also we loved Joey's at Los Abrigados and On the Rocks serves a very nice breakfast if you want to eat out before the days activities. Wonderful scenery, lots to do and see within an hours drive. Indian ruins, petroglyphs, National Parks & National Monuments, Grand Canyon (2 hrs away) wonderful scenic drives in all directions. Can't wait to go back!!!!!!!!!
Just returned from our stay April 16 - 23, 2006. Had a great time. Stayed in a 1BR rehabbed Jerome unit. It was very clean and well-equipped, but was quite dark as others have stated. The bedroom in particular was VERY dark -- however, the living room/kitchen received morning sun, which was nice. The rehabbed units have a small kitchenette consisting of a small refrigerator/freezer, microwave, full size dishwasher, toaster oven and 2burner stove. Perfectly sufficient for all cooking needs, plus there are BBQ's on the property. We found the restaurants in Sedona book up very quickly, and often have long waits, so having a 1Br suite rather than a hotel room in which we could prepare our own breakfast and oftentimes lunch and/or dinner, was a big plus. With kids, this is also a big moneysaver :-)
We were very happy with Los Abrigados' location centrally located in Sedona and walkable to many shopping areas. We particularly loved the games on-site: mini golf, tennis, basketball, bocce ball, paddle tennis, horseshoes. The ILX Premiere Country Club, as it's called, has all these facilities right on Oak Creek, so it's very picturesque. We used it every day! The pools are also nice, and one pool has food & beverage service, which is very convenient.
We had a great time in Sedona, kept busy the entire week and will definitely go back again. We would happily stay at Los Abrigados again - the central location, having something larger than a hotel room with the ability to make our own meals, beautiful grounds and outdoor amenities (mini-golf, etc.) made it a perfect choice.
We spent a week here in late June of 2004, and this was our third visit to Los Abrigados. We are headed back this August and have plans for MANY more stays into the future!
We go for 2 weeks at a time and always try a different place the 2nd week - this year it will be Arroyo Robles - our 1st time at that timeshare.
At Los Abrigados the grounds, architecture and landscaping make me feel that I've found my piece of heaven. It's quiet, reflective and I can sit at Oak Creek for hours doing hardly anything at all, which is normally impossible for me.
Yes! The 1 bedroom units are in dire need of some major spit and polish, properly working drawers and a more functional kitchen. I wish the bar at the pool was open a bit longer and was more varied. I wish the pool opened at 5am.
But most of all I wish I could live at Los Abrigados!
As for theft, that should be addressed for sure. I've lost a few items over the years and it hurts, it's a personal invasion! About 30 years ago I was at the Waldorf and someone took my favorite bracelet, that I had pretty steadily worn for some 20 years! It wasn't valuable, except to me for all the memories it held!
I really like the staff, and everyone has their cranky days - even in public service! Just make sure you greet them with a huge honest smile!
I have stayed at Orange Lakes, Vistana, Westin Kierland, Disney and many of the top timeshares. I have stayed at the J.W. Marriott's Camelback Inn in Scottsdale, El Conquistador in Tucson, and many MANY other $400.00 per night hotels....Sorry, they are in the end just buildings! BUT MY HEART BELONGS TO LOS ABRIGADOS, BECAUSE IT LIVES AND BREATHS!!
I have stayed at 3 other newer timeshares in Sedona that did not charm me much at all, not the happiness I get at LA!! Even the Enchantment resort did not give me the warmth, although they do really shine!
For me it's the calmness of LA that's perhaps the true winner, wandering over to watch a a dress rehearsal of the Taming of the Shrew at Tlaquepaque, sitting by a bubbling fountain surrounded by flaming red flowers climbing the adobe walls, wandering back for a drink on the veranda and reading by the creek until the light fades away. Getting a little early tennis in before tea on the balcony.
I can accept the roughness of the rooms for the beauty that surrounds them is so much more!
I know ILX will get it together eventually, they must have a sense of the wealth and riches they have in Los Abrigados! They will be true to it's heritage in time!
By all means go to the Hyatt Pinion Pointe while in Sedona if you want a 5 star timeshare, or Enchantment for a lovely top rated resort, just leave me here please! ENJOY THE MOMENT - IT ONLY HAPPENS ONCE!
We stayed for a week in March 2005, in one of the non-rehabed units. There is not much of a kitchen and the room seemed dark, but was clean and neat.
The grounds are beautiful. There is sometimes a delay getting out of the driveway because the adjacent shopping center uses the same exit.
We sat in on a sales presentation. It appears that part of the maintenance fee is being used to upgrade the units. This is nice for existing owners, but new buyers pay full price and then have to pay for rehab with their future maintenance fees. Not a good deal on that score.
We had a great time here! The Jerome unit has a kitchenette, but they are updating them all.
WE absolutely loved Los Abrigados! The studio was pleasantly furnished, with a kitchenette (UPDATED!) fireplace, large bath area and a jacuzzi right outside our door!
The scenery is breathtaking!
This resort has stepped it up to make it a top resort! We visited the 2 room, full kitchen, laundry and jacuzzi and it was great!
Stayed for 1 week in Feb 2004 in a Jerome Room which is a one bedroom and was pleasantly surprised with the resort. The Italian Resaurant's food was incredible. The spa was nice and massage great. The rooms were 0kay. Small kitchenette but we were told they were upgrading to full very soon. The bed was very comfortable. Some of the staff wasn't as nice as you'd expect from the service industy and all in all it was a nice stay.
We stayed here in a one bedroom during christmas and enjoyed every minute. Great setting and the 3 on-site resturants and tlaquepaque art-type shops made for a wonderfull vacation..Only complaint was the little frig and microwave but everything else more than made up for it..Will go back a.s.a.p!!
Four of us stayed in one of the suites (September '03), and we found it comfortable. The staff was very helpful and the location can't be beat. The decor was a bit dated, and it was not "plush," but it was clean and the beds were firm. In hotel terms, it was like staying at a Holiday Inn.
One note, this resort was recently named in a class action lawsuit. It's basically a breach of contract, alleging that IXC failed to provide the type of accomodations that were advertised and failed to make units available when promised.
This is a perfect spot for us ... natural beauty, fun/active location, and a down to earth spa. (only complaint is that the aerobics classes are too close to some of the massage rooms but the staff were more than helpful in solving th problem ...it is an issue with an inflexible Spa manager but the staff will look out for you when you make an appointment)...The Spa has 1st rate massages, facials, hydrotherapy, workout facilities and pool. The condos are spacious, private and the beds and couches are as comfortable as can be. (Soon the decor will need a little updating). Perfect for a getaway for one traveling alone. or as a couple or as a family. Sedona has it all and Los Abrigados is the best place to be.
We spent a t/s week there from 9/05/2003- 9/12/2003 on an exchange through SFX. We stayed in a 1BR unit. We were not happy with our initial assignment so they very willingly switched us to another. They went out of their way to makie sure that we were happy,. This unit was excellent. It was very well located and was one of the few that had a view of the rocks from our balcony. The only downside is that the unit did not have a full kitchen and only a very small refrigerator.
The resort itself is beautiful, well maintained, and very well located. The staff was very friendly and helpful. All in all it was one of our best timeshare experiences and we will definitely go back.
Perfect location in Sedona and a first class resort in every respect. Beautifully landscaped grounds, 3 on-site restaurants (2 gourmet), full-service spa and health club. All popular with guests and locals alike.
Do not expect condo-style accomodations with full kitchens. The studio, 1 or 2 bedroom units are comparable to spacious lodging at four- star hotel resorts, and the full range of amenities provide a similar experience. Excellent value, either as rental or purchase.
Beautiful resort. So close to all Tlaquepaque arts and crafts. Very charming and fun place. Am planning on getting married at Tlaquepaque and want to have timeshare arranged when I do.
Limited kitchen brings rating down a shade, but location and facilities are great!
