    We plan to trade into Sedona for the first time in the spring of 2019. Does anyone have a favorite timeshare there? We are leaning toward Arroyo Roble Resort because it is near town, but are open to anything.

    Thanks for your help!

    HYATT's Pinion Pointe, we have owned for yrs. It sits at the go around of 177 and 89A one block from old town. Easy walk to town, central to any direction you may want to drive.

    We love the grounds at arroyo Robles especially the creek side bbq area. The units are very 70s and kinda funky so we opt for the hyatt Sedona.

    Arroyo Robles trades in RCI, however Hyatt Pinon Pt trades in II.

    We walked thru each in late September but not stayed at either.
    The Arroyo's creekside area is very nice, relaxing and cool on a hot day.
    But RCI exchanges do not ever get creekside units.
    Their pool is a good size too.
    Hyatt's pool looks a bit smaller; actually small
    for the number of units.

    We were told that most of Arroyo's 2 bdrm units are townhouses with stairs.
    But they do have some ADA units that are flatter terrain.
    Hyatt does have ADA units, and paths, but otherwise there are a lot of steps at the resort

    Thanks for the information. I am in RCI so Hyatt unfortunately isn't an option.

    Wyndham is in a quiet neighborhood, but I don't think they deposit a lot into RCI for that particular resort. I would take it if you can get it.

    Diamond took over the old Sunterra, so they have a few properties in Sedona, you might have better luck with Diamond in RCI.

    We own at Villas of Sedona (and it's sister resort next door, Sedona Springs). We have actually only stayed there once- and rented that time. Our grown kids and families lived in the Phoenix area and we all gathered at Sedona for Thanksgiving almost 15 years go. My, how time flies. The units there (Villas) are good size and the pool area has both in- and outdoor access depending on weather- and good BBQ areas. They also exchange via RCI.

    Much of what you might consider 'Best' would depend on what you want to do. If you want to hike out directly onto the red rock trails, you might want one thing, but if you are golfers, somewhere else would appeal. The Hyatt and Los Abrigados are close to the 'action', where at most of the others, you'll have to drive a little ways into 'town'.

    We see the OP is a TUG Member, so checking the reviews is an option.

    We liked Los Abrigados for the location. Unit was nice as well.

    I’ve stayed in most of the places mentioned here. Hyatt are very nice units but can be dark if you get first floor. I go in December so its low season and easy to get good deals. I stayed at Arroyo Roble last year, great location for the old town shopping area. Springs units are big, and Summit are nice. Staying at Ridge in Oak Creek again this year.

    Anywhere in the area is fine for us, we like to hike all over. If you have the National Park Senior pass take it, its good at most of the trailhead parking areas.

    I have only been to Hyatt Pinon Point - so I have nothing to compare it too. For our first visit, I think it was PERFECT and would go back there in a heartbeat. There are April weeks available via II now - I will post in the sightings. If one of these weeks work for you - got jump on it and don't look back! (assuming you have II)

    Units at Sedona Springs are very large and well kept up.

    We have the Villas at Sedona booked for next spring. I could have reserved at the Villas at Poco Diablo or Sedona Springs as VI has inventory in all three. This will be our first trip to Sedona. I was thinking of towing my jeep but I think I can rent one when I get there if I really want .

    We have stayed twice at Sedona Summit and we like it. Quiet, a little out of town, easy to get out and do some wine tasting. Good proximity to a number of mtb trails.

    We have also stayed twice at Hyatt Pinon Pointe, it’s nice to be in town to some extent but Sedona traffic is a little annoying and at Pinon Pointe, you’re in the thick of the traffic.

    We’re heading back in a few weeks- Pinon Pointe this time. So obviously we like them both.

    We once stayed at Sedona Springs. Enjoyed it and would like to go back. I guess that makes it our #1 resort in Sedona.

    We are deeded owners at Sedona Summit, which trades in both II and RCI and we love it. We love hiking and being in West Sedona and away from the traffic of the Y suits us perfectly. Grocery stores are handy, access to the hiking/biking areas in Boynton Canyon, the ruins at Tuzigoot and the wonderful Devil's Bridge are all easily accessible without having to go through Sedona traffic. The resort is on the North side of 89A and you can walk from the resort to the trailhead for the Girdner Trail, less than 1/10th of a mile away!

    If you like walking to restaurants and shopping, you will not enjoy this resort as it is away from the downtown area and restaurants.

    Thanks so much for all the feedback. I think that I will start with an ongoing search for Arroyo Roble since I would like to be able to walk to areas for our first trip. Also we are in RCI so that leaves out Hyatt.
