Hotel Review: Sheraton Desert Oasis in Scottsdale Arizona

The spectacular Sonoran Desert will be the perfect backdrop for your stay at Sheraton Desert Oasis in Scottsdale Arizona. Stunning sunsets and towering saguaros give you the remarkable feeling of being at home in nature.

My family and I live in Arizona and choose to stay at the Sheraton Desert Oasis for a week in June for a stay-cation. This review is my own opinion and I did not receive any compensation for this review. The Sheraton Desert Oasis is an SPG (Starwood Preferred Guest) property, you will find owners and guests around the property. It was a great week-long getaway.

The Resort Grounds at the Sheraton Desert Oasis in Scottsdale Arizona

The Sheraton Dessert Oasis in Scottsdale is located in a great area and close to a lot of local attractions. The resort is very family friendly with an old Southwest look and feel. The front desk staff were extremely nice, professional and helpful. The property is gorgeous with lots of trees and landscaping.


The property also has many grills around for guests to use.  The grills were cleaned every day and BBQ tools were available at every location.  We used the grills a few nights during our stay.

The resort also offers two playgrounds.  My kids loved this option and had a great time.  And Yes, the playground is covered from the sun so their little hands are safe from burns.

For all of us who like to still exercise the resort offers a small but effective gym too.

The Pools at the Sheraton Desert Oasis in Scottsdale Arizona

The resort has two pools and a hot tub whirl pool.  The relaxation pool is small and quiet. The main pool is large with a waterfall (my kids loved hanging under the falls), a volleyball court and plenty of people relaxing.  At the main pool you have easy access to food and drinks.  The even offer a flag on the back of each pool lounger.  Lift the flag for service.  How easy is that, right? The staff allows pool floats but be aware not the very large ones. On Tuesdays from 1-3pm the pool has a DJ playing music and lots of games for kids and adults.

The Rooms at the Sheraton Desert Oasis In Scottsdale Arizona

We had a 1 Bedroom Premium unit which was very spacious. The rooms has a small but stocked kitchen including Washer Dryer.  A separate Living Room and dining area. There is a fireplace in both the living room AND bedroom, a large shower in the bathroom. There is also a huge jetted bathtub inside the room. The bedroom has a very comfortable king bed. Outside has a nice patio with table and chairs as well as a cushioned bench and it was very clean. We had a great view of the pool and an amazing jacaranda tree.
