Perfect for a celebration, my sisters and I thoroughly enjoyed our tea experience at The Phoenician. The food and tea were delectable and I really appreciated the delicious gluten-free options. The pianist was excellent, playing some of my favorite movie scores. We had a gorgeous view out of a panel of glass windows. The only thing that would have been helpful is that we didn't know where to park and ended up walking longer than necessary, but it was such a lovely day, we hardly noticed. I would definitely recommend the experience (and make sure to come hungry!).

As always, afternoon tea at the Phoenician was wonderful! Natalie, Wanda, and other staff provide friendly, professional service. And, Allen's piano music provides the perfect ambiance.

We upgraded the the holiday champagne package and even though it was a splurge at $110pp it was worth it! We enjoyed every minute of it. The sandwiches, champagne, lemon curd and the beautiful place settings and tea sets were all our favorites. The service was warm and inviting and very relaxing. I really appreciated how friendly and attentive the servers were. We packed up our desserts and enjoyed them the following day which was just lovely! I definitely recommend going with family or friends for an enjoyable afternoon.

This was our 4th year at the Phoenician Holiday Tea. It has become a Christmas tradition that we look forward to every holiday. We were not going to let this crazy year take it away from us. This year we treated my mother who flew in from Texas and it will be a memory I'll cherish forever. We always look forward to seeing Wanda and listening to the wonderful live piano music. And of course, the tea and food is excellent!

This is our second time at holiday tea and it was exceptional, as usual! Delicious food and every tea I sampled was amazing. Wanda even went the extra mile and made little gift packets of herbal tea for us when we realized the ones at our table had black tea (which we don’t drink). Will be back again!

This place never disappoints. It’s our annual tradition to have tea at the holidays. We feel so lucky we were actually able to secure a reservation. Wanda and crew are always wonderful. They make us feel like we are in our own home. The atmosphere is beautiful. Everything is truly divine. Thank you for a wonderful experience, as always! Happy Thanksgiving and merry Christmas to you all there.

Wonderful afternoon tea! I have been to a few afternoon tea’s and this is one is great, the only thing I would change is the price. It is silly to be as expensive as it was. But over all the server was great and food was good

Fantastic experience, and 10/10 recommend bringing guests from out of state who are looking to experience the finer things AZ has to offer! The pricing is a little hefty for what amounts to finger sandwiches, tea, and wine, but they offer you an unlimited selection (including to go boxes) which is incredible. Plus the views of the resort pool and greens are absolutely stunning!

Visiting from NY and we come here every year. It’s always a great experience and great food. Definitely the best afternoon tea we have been to. A special shout out to Wanda (one of the servers) who always remembers us and goes out of her way to make this a special occasion! Thank you Wanda and the Phoenician!!

This is always an expensive experience, and I know it, but it was the day after Valentine’s Day so they called it a Valentine’s Day tea and raised the price even more. Food and all was just the same as their regular tea. NOT HAPPY! Is the Phoenician really this desperate for money. Just don’t make your reservation close to a holiday or,you will be unpleasantly surprised by the charges.

Beautiful hotel with amazing landscaping and pools. The tea food was nice and the service was great, but the location is in the busy lobby next to the bar that has sports on TVs and the noise level was way too high. There are way too many people walking through, and it was just not a relaxing or beautiful experience as I had hoped.

Wonderful, Delicious and you can even request a Vegan Gluten free menu. Which I did and the scones were delicious, like cake. The sandwiches were fantastic, all veggies. There is no vegan cream though, so I cheated a little. The dessert was berries and a vegan cream. Everyone else went with the real stuff and they loved. The tea is great too. We all ordered a different tea and tasted all the teas like a wine taste. We went for my mother in laws 89th and she really felt special as they sing Happy Birthday to everyone accompanied by piano.
