“Great hotel but in the middle of no where”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

Hotel itself was very nice. Pool was great and it had an awesome waterslide for the kids. There weren't a lot of dining choices and the restaurants there are pretty expensive. One of the restaurants was closed due to a PGA event the entire time we were there. You had to drive a minimum of 10 miles to get to an offsite restaurant. We also had a weird event where the cleaning staff either took or threw out some things in our room. Nothing valuable but things the kids had made. The staff took care of it though, they brought up some stuffed animals and more items to re-do their crafts. Definately have to go to the Desert Museum and the Ostrich Farm, both were really fun and the kids loved them.

The hotel is a five star facility from top to bottom. There's plenty to do for ages 3-90. My only minus was the rooms shower and water pressure.

Second time here. First time was right after the hotel opened. I'm a big fan of the Ritz and have stayed at many of them. This location falls short of others. Food at the hotel is average at best, not very inspiring and sometimes not even warm.

Rooms are okay in size, the heating and cooling systems give off odd noises and that impacts light sleepers. Probably JWM quality and not the Ritz standard.

Service is good and the grounds are very nice. All in all....just not quite at the level commensurate with the brand.

This resort is one of the best in the country, I travel often and have high standards, this resort met them all! They have great rooms, great service, amazing property, free access to almost everything, great hiking trails, and great food!

There is only one thing I would change, the spa doesn't open till 10am and closes at 6pm! This made it hard to plan our day sometimes, we couldn't get treatments in the morning or night which is when we spend most of our time at the resort. Despite this one small thing I have to say this is the nicest Ritz I've ever stayed at! If your going to be in the area and don't want to stay at a hippy spa then come here!

Room Tip: I strongly recommend the canyon view as this is the best and affords you the most privacy!

My husband and I traveled with two of our children from the Midwest for a golf vacation the end of January. The hotel, golf course, food and service were the best we have ever experienced. The Spa was very relaxing and professional.
We would recommend Dove Mountain to anyone without hesitation.
My son lost his cell phone on the golf course and they found it after we had already arrived home and mailed it to us.
Having grown up in Tucson I can say I will never stay anywhere else!
My husband is going back in March to golf.

Room Tip: Mountain Views with sunrise
