Talking Stick ROCKS!
Talking Stick Resort was awesome! We had a beautiful room on the 11th floor, facing east to see the beautiful sunrises. The service was friendly and professional. The Black Fig deli, Blue Coyote serve great food. Don't miss the sunsets up at the Orange Sky resturant. They have outside balconies off the bar for viewing. The bartender Heather serves a fabulous Lemon Drop! The casino is great and the Golf courses very challengeing, even though there recovering from some major flood damage a few years ago. All the staff were perfect and made our stay wonderful. We will return to enjoy again.
