This place is one of the best there is. The location is beautiful, the grounds are immaculate, the staff is very attentive and the restaurants are great. I look forward to staying here again. This is what the
Ritz-Carlton hotels are all about.
We stayed in one of the separate duplex buildings a short walk from the main hotel and it was quite spacious. We had a patio that was at the base of a mountain. A hummingbird visited us several times a day. We hiked the Wild...More

I have stayed at both. I much prefer The Boulders. Tucson is a great city with lots of outdoor activities. Phoenix is more congested in the heart of the city, but the Boulders location is beautiful. Very much a desert feel... More
I have stayed at both. I much prefer The Boulders. Tucson is a great city with lots of outdoor activities. Phoenix is more congested in the heart of the city, but the Boulders location is beautiful. Very much a desert feel at Boulders. And the accommodations are so much better - the Dove Mountain accommodations could be any hotel anywhere. The Boulders is very much like staying at a hacienda.

It IS hot in the summer months of June / July / August in southern Arizona. Period. That said, we go there in the summer. Why? The rates are way, way down. What do we do there then? We get up early and go for a fabulous hike in the early (and I mean early ... like 6am) in and around the property for an hour or so when the temps start at 75ish and move into the range of 85-90 by 9am). If they are not too busy, we've been able to book nine holes of golf instead of the full 18 as another option, teeing off very early as well. Then, we do a leisurely breakfast and hit the pool. We personally love the spa, so the afternoon is when we book spa appointments and then we hang out in that facilities nooks and crannies reading, relaxing and loving the surroundings. Since this place is literally nestled into the mountain, the sun disappears behind them making the place shaded over by 5pm, so it starts to cool. Cool is a relative term, however. We have some dinner and then in the evening, we love to go back out to the pool area and star gaze or take another swim. After a day that is well into the 100s, temps being outside in the low 90s and sometimes high 80s actually feels cool! So, let me tell you that if you are from the Phoenix/Las Vegas or other really hot area, disappearing to this sanctuary for a couple of days to enjoy being outside for a few hours a day is terrific. And, by the way, if you happen to get an afternoon monsoon storm (they usually happen in the late afternoon or early evening), it's a fantastic thing to watch come and go from the golf club patio!
