Here's what others have had to say about Phoenician Scottsdale.

  • 4½-Ball Rating "Outstanding tennis facility and excellent level of private instruction by Ivan and his team. This is definitely a 5-star resort with lots of activities beyond tennis which is ideal if you are traveling with non-tennis obsessed family members. What that does mean though is that it may not always be easy to find other guests to play with at your level. At least that was the case for me during my stay. With just a bit more effort (e.g. acquire a couple of ball machines, organize a tennis concierge service) I think the Phoenician has the potential to be a top tennis resort destination."—E.S., Int., November 2019
  • 3½-Ball Rating "This is a beautiful and well-run resort, but there is very limited tennis available. Great facility, but it was virtually empty every day I was there."—K.W., Adv., April 2012
  • 3-Ball Rating "What was once an exceptional tennis program is all but gone. A beautiful, luxury resort with a beautifully equipped tennis facility. Unfortunately, for the serious tennis player, it pretty much ends there. When I last stayed at the Phoenician 3 years ago, there was an vibrant tennis program; a head pro, 3 other teaching pros, lots of players and a variety of lessons and hitting clinics. Now there is one decent pro, but no other clinics to speak of.
    The head pro was on extended medical leave, which possibly explains why little to nothing was going on in terms of clinics. Even over the busy Christmas season, there were only a handful of players around. If you are looking for a luxury golf resort, the Phoenician is an excellent choice. For tennis, look eleswhere. This resort has no business being listed anymore as a top 75 tennis resort; bronze or otherwise.  "

  • 3-Ball Rating "This is one of the most beautiful resort settings I have seen. A wonderful tennis garden, with Camelback Mountain in the background. Its breathtaking The resort itself is very comfortable with plenty of room and privacy. While tennis was likely a prominant feature in the resorts past, golf appears to be the main draw these days.
    If you are a group of friends looking for a great high quality place to meet and play for a few days you will likely have no difficulty with booking a court and playing for several hours at a time. In my case, I played with a friend who was staying at the same hotel while on business in the area. On the two days we played in the morning and evening.
    I arranged 1 hour lessons for the two other days that he could not play as there was not other tennis option. A very good college level player is doing the lessons and it was wonderful to hit with someone of this level but was very pricy at $100 per hour when I compare other resorts.
    During the week, There were very few people actually playing with the exception of the odd foursome traveling on business together. ."

  • 2½-Ball Rating "This resort is beautiful but the tennis is almost nonexistent. The courts are empty and there is no program as far as I am concerned. To rate this as anything more than beautiful courts is misleading. The worst tennis I have experienced at a very expensive cost. I can't figure out how this resort ever made the top 100. Our vacation was booked based on this resort being on your list and I just wonder the last time someone from your list took a clinic there. Courts are beautiful if you have your own partner to hit with."—J.W., Int., November 2009
