This resort comes highly recommended from one of our readers. They said it was the most pet-friendly resort around and they can’t say enough good things about it.

It offers guests a Southwestern experience on 80 desert acres. They have walking trails at the resort, tennis, swimming pools and much more. Special room rates can be as low as $69 during certain times and seasons. There is a $75 one time additional pet fee.
