If you're looking to get away from crowds, this resort is incredible in December. We visited a week before Christmas for our first trip with our 3 month old baby. It was quiet and peaceful and service was outstanding throughout our week-long stay. The rooms...More

Both are great choices. More off-property options in Scottsdale. I love how Dove Mountain is nestled against the Ritz Carlton. If you like hiking, go to Dove Mountain. The Ritz Carlton is north of Tucson so a fair amount of driving to attractions. May want to visit Biosphere2!

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!
