Casino Del Sol Resort Achieves 4-Star Rating

Casino Del Sol Resort, an enterprise of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, was recently named to the prestigious Forbes Travel Guide Star Rating List. Recognized for exceptional service and amenities, it is the only casino resort in the state of Arizona to receive the coveted four-star rating.

The overall property was awarded, as well as Hiapsi, the luxurious spa retreat offering treatments inspired by Native American healing rituals, and PY Steakhouse, Casino Del Sol Resort’s contemporary, fine-dining restaurant. The 2014 Forbes four-star rating is the latest addition to the property’s list of accolades. Garnering numerous national and local recognitions, Casino Del Sol Resort is also a AAA Four Diamond recipient, and 2012 and 2013 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence winner for PY Steakhouse.

“Achieving this honor is a remarkable accomplishment for Casino Del Sol Resort. It is a testament to the countless contributions of our dedicated and passionate team members, and would not be possible without them, the Pascua Yaqui Tribe and the guests of our award-winning casino resort,” said Jim Burns, CEO of Casino Del Sol Resort.

Since 1958, Forbes Travel Guide ratings have been the gold standard of luxury travel. The requirements are the most stringent in the industry with more than 500 criteria evaluated to determine a star rating.

“Our Star Ratings recognize the finest hotels, restaurants and spas in the world. These ratings serve as guideposts for consumers seeking exceptional travel experiences, and our primary mission is to serve the consumer,” said Michael Cascone, President of Forbes Travel Guide. “We’re proud to be associated with the new additions to our global list.”
