My family and I chose the Ritz-Cartlon after an extensive search for resorts on all the major travel websites. We got an excellent deal that included $50 daily resort credit and complimentary breakfast for two. The reason for the trip was as a get away during our daughter's orientation at the UofA. While we were there, we experienced some very pleasant surprises. Having stayed at hotels and resorts all over the world, we found this resort to have one of the best levels of service that we've ever experienced. Simply put, 'No' doesn't appear to exist at the Ritz. =) Another pleasant surprise is that it appears that the Ritz has gotten away from the practice of a daily resort fee. The original fee we were quoted was $25/day, but upon arrival, the fee was no longer in effect. Either it was a wise traveler friendly move or they know something we don't. I'm treating it as the former. As a potential guest at the RC Dove Mountain, you have to understand that the location is in Marana, Arizona. To give a better idea, a one-way trip to the University of Arizona was about 35 minutes (with no delays). There are a couple of small shopping plazas about 5 miles away, so if you're looking to do that, it will take some time. Now the positive of the idea: The place is in a secluded spot nestled in the Tortolita mountains and is serene in both its natural surroundings and solitude. Each day we ate at Core restaurant for both breakfast and dinner. The breakfast buffet is bountiful, with something for everyone. Dinner was down right outstanding and in a couple of cases memorable. Hint: Try the honey-lavender gelato - it's to die for! The RC did have mountain bikes for guest usage. There are some good desert trails to test your skills on. Unfortunately, my daughter took a spill on some hard pack dirt and got quite the road rash. The front desk folks and bellmen pretty much fell over themselves (in a commendable way) to get my daughter patched up (her hand looked like hamburger and sh...
Attentive staff, fun pool and slide for kids, feels secluded, front drive view is beautiful and peaceful. Fun 4th of July with fireworks and activities. People are friendly.
Beautiful grounds and buildings. Many activities ( spa, pool etc) Helpful staff. Restaurants excellent tho Core Dinners were not as good as last year. Very relaxing.
I struggled to find even one tiny complaint to put on my comment card after my hotel stay. I would love to return to this hotel; it was fabulous and the service was exceptional!
We only spent one night here @ Dove Mountain...it is secluded and the amenities and hospitality is everything you'd expect from the Ritz Carlton. You are never left searching for someone to help you, they find you. The beds are comfortable, the bathtub is large enough for two (only thing missing was the bubble bath), towels plentiful, large flat screen, internet access (a little pricey) but all in all a wonderful stay. We had some monsoon activity and it was wonderful enjoying the rain under the balcony as we ate dinner @ Ignite. Wonderful stay!!
Golf course has stunning views, but not for the faint hearted golfer, tough course and greens. Food was very good. Service from the staff was exceptional. My bed was so comfortable I did not move a muscle until waking up the next morning. Wear your sunscreen protection here and bring a jacket along for the desert night, gets pretty chilly. The wine list was very very good and so was the Cakebread, Dancing Bear. Thank you for the great experience and all the smiles from your staff.
very different setting, wonderful absolutely wonderful staff and it was just all good! Nothing, it was just wonderfully perfect.
Beautiful setting, love the outdoor fire pits at night Nothing to dislike! Perhaps the wait staff in the restaurant can sometimes be too eager to please, checking in a little too often in the dining room, but that's all.
The Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain Resort was the perfect getaway for my husband and I. Every staff member we encountered was welcoming, friendly and helpful. The attention to detail was incredible; from the artwork on the walls to the menu selections in each of the restaurants. The guest rooms are spacious and well-appointed, each with its own terrace for relaxing and listening to the Native American flute music played each night. The spa was immaculately clean and immediately relaxing, while the golf course was challenging but accessible to a wide range of players. We will definitely visit again soon!
The resort sits beautifully within the mountain range. Highlights were the guided hike (thanks Ranger Rick), the indoor/outdoor spa, the waterslide, lunch at Turquesa Grill and dinner at Ignite. The flutist during the Sunset Celebration was truly awesome. The entire family loved it, including my 9 and 12 year old girls.
room checked into toilet did not work - room moved to directly across from lobby - extremely noisy
The lady that checked me in was super helpful and professional . Wifi was NOT free and no shampoo for showers
There are several restaurants to choose from. The hotel is next to a highway exit and the highway. My special request was respected.
It at least had a bed in the riom Halls smelled like cat pee, hall carpets not clean, room carpets not clean, no refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, hair dryer, iron or ironing board in the room. Could see mold under the rim of the toilet, the AC hardly blew air
Location Security door open..
I liked the breakfast in the morning the swimming pool workout room - the workers there seem to be very polite. It was hot outside but the AC unit in the inside and made it very comfortable- thank you very much The beds seem to be very guest room type beds uncomfortabl needed a later check out time wasn't possible even though we showed up at 7 in the evening
Clean, efficient and a good value for the $.
