Our 2011 Arizona vacation - Sedona Pines Resort


Loved this resort! Participated in Zumba and water aerobics. Took the Verde Canyon Railroad trip and an extreme jeep tour! Drove to the Grand Canyon for a day, while staying at this resort. Loved Sedona so much that we purchased another timeshare at their sister resort.

Twenty-three Years with RCI


Our subscribing membership with RCI began when we purchased our first timeshare at Breezy Point, MN in 1985. We made our first exchange the following year for Spring Break with our three daughters to Oceanside, CA. In 1989 we traded for a week in Cancun and purchased another timeshare. We made other exchanges to locations in Florida, California, Hawaii, New Orleans, Texas, Colorado, Arizona, Greece and Canada over the years. We even made an exchange for a houseboat in Florida! We have always been able to get an exchange for the location of our choice. All trips were enjoyable, but Greece was the most outstanding. It was on the island of Crete, which has beautiful scenery and rich history. It was our first experience with Greek culture and we loved it. We have visited Greece many times since. RCI has been a winner for us!

Sedona


Traded our timeshare for a trip to Sedona, Arizona in 2007, stayed at the Sedona Pines Resort in April of that year. One of the most tranquil, picturesque places we've ever been to. There is definitely an energy there that really is part of its charm. The color of the sky along with the landscape at all times of the day really brings one back to nature and all it has to offer. On a tour we took with a guide, a member of the party asked him where the best spot was for a photo. He looked at this person and said; "anywhere you want." That about sums it up.

Arizona 2009


Last year we went with my parents to Cornville, Arizona. It was the best timeshare we had exchanged for. Very well laid-out and great pool for the grandkids to play with their Granna and Papa. We saw great Indian ruins, the Grand Canyon, relaxed, hiked in Sedona, and enjoyed the warm weather away from the cold Alaska winter. Thanks to RCI for providing great resorts!

AZ for Xmas


All five of us - myself, my husband and our three children ranging in ages from 17-10; went to Arizona for Christmas in 2008. We stayed at the Camelback Resort. I have to say we had a wonderful time. There was so much to do driving and hiking on the scenic trails. Swimming in December was the best and it was the last year my daughter was traveling with us due to her college plans. So it was very important to me that everyone was happy with our choices of activities. We had the great weather, interesting shops to explore and wonderful staff at the resort.

The next week we spent New Year's Eve in Sedona at another RCI affiliated timeshare. Just when I thought things couldn't get better it did. We had the same great experience at the resort and the beauty of our surroundings. We did a jeep tour, went to the Grand Canyon and explored the area. We even saw fireworks on New Year's Eve at a local Casino on a Native American Reservation. I think this was an example of a great itinerary and perfect timing. All the kids had a blast and we were extremely happy with our choice of places to explore during the holidays.

Canyons, Hiking, Beautiful Scenery and More… All on an Arizona Vacation!


Susie M. - RCI Subscribing Member Vacation ExperiencesThree years ago, my family planned a winter vacation to sunny Sedona, Arizona. We bought our Red Rock Pass and picked up a trail map from the local Chamber of Commerce, then we hiked, and hiked, and hiked, each trail offering more adventure and more scenery than the last. We all enjoyed the area immensely, hiking, shopping, dining, and enjoying the fabulous resort pool and hot tub to our hearts’ content.

Making the most of our timeshare travel, we’ve visited Las Vegas, Washington, D.C., even Disney during our winter vacations, but this is the area we like to return to the most. We’re not alone in our adoration of Arizona! At my job with RCI, I am fortunate to hear vacation stories from our RCI subscribing members. Here’s what other timeshare owners had to say* about their Sedona resort vacations:

Linda, Wilmington, NC: We absolutely loved our trip to Arizona. We stayed in Sedona for the week. It is impossible to describe or photograph how beautiful it was. It was also our base for the Grand Canyon, Painted Desert, Petrified Forest and Page Canyon. What a wonderful week. We will return to this destination.

Alan, Ankeny, IA: Wanting to take a great winter vacation, my wife and I invited a couple to go with us to Sedona, Arizona. It was February and we found the weather to be great jacket weather. It was warm enough to golf and reasonably priced golf courses were found. Our condo exchange was the most beautiful we ever had and had a small lock-out unit attached which was wonderful for two couples. The scenery was beautiful and we really enjoyed the vacation.

Elaine, Milford, CT: Sedona, Arizona, is a dream destination. We have used our timeshare there several times, and never cease to marvel at the natural rock formations and of course the people. Best adventure is the side trip to Grand Canyon close by — don’t miss it!

Robert, Galt, CA: Our trip to Sedona, Arizona, was one of the funniest and most relaxing vacations we have taken in the 20+ years we have been members of RCI. Stayed at Sedona Summit, a great place. Each day we explored the area seeing some of the most beautiful scenery, Indian ruins, red rocks, beautiful homes, interesting rock formations, and talking to the locals about the area. The entire trip was one of awe. Fortunately, we had fantastic weather. We had the time of our lives.
