Historic authentic Arizona charm defines The Wigwam. Built over 90 years ago, the resort is built on 440 of acres, providing guests with a peaceful, quiet, and truly perfect southwest desert experience. A perfect summer escape is exactly what my family needed for our staycation.
We visited the Wigwam and we had the best time. We started our vacation by attending the Character Breakfast at Red’s Bar and Grill. Charlie was so excited to meet Aladdin and Jasmine, and he was even more impressed they knew his name! Jasmine made him a balloon dog, who he named Rajah. Aladdin offered Charlie face painting but Charlie sadly declined. After meeting the characters we were able to enjoy a Saturday morning brunch at Red’s Bar and Grill. My personal favorite? The Biscuits and Gravy with a side of Bloody Mary. Because it was necessary.
After having breakfast, we found ourselves happy to be lost walking around the huge resort. In the very middle was the Tower pool alongside the Tower Bar and Grill. We quickly put on our swimsuits and spent the remainder of our staycation in the pool, staying cool from the Arizona 100 degree weather. The pool has a waterpark with two slides, poolside service, lounge chairs, and umbrellas. (and bathrooms right next to the pool so you don’t have to run around looking for them while your soaking wet!)
Saturday night we found ourselves sitting on the comfiest lounge chairs on the grass by Wigwam Bar listening to live music. It was a perfect sunset, the weather had cooled off, and the ambiance was amazing.
Our favorite food items at the Wigwam:
Wigwam Bar (breakfast): The Puzzle bread (It reminds me of my grandmothers monkey bread but its topped with even more caramel, bananas, and pecans. Its amazing)
Tower Pool Bar and Grill: The Kids Quesadilla (it’s a secret item and not on the menu but it is by far the best quesadilla Ive ever had. I ordered it three times while I was there. My favorite thing about it? It’s made with gouda cheese and it comes with a side of sour cream and salsa).
Red’s Bar and Grill: The Red Wings (the hot sauce is made in house and is the perfect blend of spice, sweet and almost has a garlic spice)
Best drinks at the Wigwam:
Red’s Bar and Grill: The Bloody Mary
Tower Pool Bar and Grill: Wigwam Signature Margarita
Red’s Bar and Grill employee, Anthony. He was so nice, accommodating and friendly. He also made Charlie feel super special during the Character Breakfast. Thank you Anthony!
Red’s Bar and Grill employee, Sam. He provided the best service to us for dinner one night. He made excellent recommendations on what to order and knew the menu like the back of his hand. Thank you Sam!
Tower Bar and Grill server, Aimee. She was so sweet, always asking if we needed anything additional and even going out of her way to help us move chairs and an umbrella. Thank you Aimee!
Overall, we had the most relaxing, enjoyable staycation at the Wigwam. I would recommend visiting the Wigwam over and over again. It’s perfect. Thank you so much for having us!
