Customer Reviews for The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain (7)

A Pedicure Review and a Massage Review
Visiting the spa is one of the things we look forward to the most on vacation. We actually have two separate reviews for this spa, one for a salon pedicure and one for a massage. Pedicure Review: I was 7 weeks pregnant when we visited The Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain property, which meant no massage for me. However, I did treat myself to a pedicure. I would be lying if I said it was the best pedicure I have ever had. In fact, it was kind of a letdown. Let me explain… the 2012 edition of Conde Nast Traveler listed the Dove Mountain spa as the #3 Resort Spa in the USA, and the #1 Spa in Arizona. Knowing this, I had high hopes, even for my simple pedicure. Was the pedicure bad? No, it just wasn’t anything special. No different than the 30 other pedicures I had had in my life; the same magazines to read, the same top 40 music, the same massage chair, the same 4 minute foot rub, and the same nail polish choices. Simply put, for a $70 pedicure, I just expected more.

What a Spa!
Wonderful spa. Very clean, relaxing atmosphere. Had the time of my life there. Only problem is that it's a bit pricey.

Excellent Ammenities & Service!!
A jewel in the desert!! This is one of Tucson's best kept secrets! I had a full body massage, MANICURE, and PEDICURE! I read the reviews and was hesitant, but soon found I had NOTHING to fear! One person's experience is not necessarily the next person's! These people know how to pamper! I had a relaxing and perfect pedi and the most wonderful massage a person could enjoy! I can't wait to go back! The staff are very attentive and professional. It is evident that this spa is well managed!! It's easy to see why Ritz stands out from all the others! Nicely done!

Can you keep a secret?
I love Ritz and I love the Dove Mountain spa most of all. I'm all about being pampered in luxury and this new spa does it right! My kids hangout at the resort waterslide, my husband plays golf and I get my "me" time. Apart from the spa, it is a beautiful resort. Prices still affordable likely because it is still new and undiscovered.

Nail Services a (Painful) Disappointment
I visited the Sap at the Ritz-Carlton as part of a girl's getaway weekend. While the facilities were gorgeous, and the amenities in the spa were thoughtful & well-appointed, my nail services were a complete (and expensive!) disappointment. During the pedicure, the nail tech literally sliced open both of my big toes while filing my toe nails, leaving open cuts that stung for days afterward. My manicure was not much better, as she left ragged cuticles and painted over them -- frankly, I can and have done better myself! I have had numerous other 'spa' pedicures (of comparable price) with impeccable results - but that was not the case here (despite the $140 price tag). Frankly, I have also had services at the cheap, strip-mall nail salons that were much better than this - at least I didn't leave injured! On top of the bad services received, we ordered drinks and snacks at the spa pool that took AN HOUR AND A HALF to arrive - with no explanation or apology for the slow service -- it was unbelievable! I know the Ritz is relatively new (6 months or so), but if they expect repeat business, or even positive word-of-mouth referrals, they'll need to step up their service considerably! Despite the beauty of the surroundings, and the spa itself, I was overwhelmingly disappointed with my experience there.

Wow-oh-wow - there is a new diamond in the valley!!
When I signed up for a one night stay after finding the Ritz via this site, I didn't realize it was the new kid on the block. Here is where the Wow-oh-wow comes in. The spa facilities almost defy description. There is a co-ed endless saltwater pool with waterfall surrounded by outdoor beds for relaxing or catching a drink or snack. If you need to warm up, there are two huge gas fire pits with comfy chairs and tables. If you want to be free as a bird on in Dove Valley, you can enjoy an outdoor shower, steam room, sauna, resting area or hot tub as au natural as is comfortable in the separate gender specific areas. If the weather is inclement, you can still warm up by another gas fireplace with comfy chairs and reading materials in yet another co-ed relaxation room with a cedar patch on the ceiling that adds to a sauna feel without the extreme heat. Treatment rooms are beautiful and the facial & massage I had were tops! All this is great. But for me, the beauty of this resort that goes well beyond the incredible beauty of this resort is that it is not only “family friendly”, they designed it for folks with kids who still want to enjoy a solitary spa experience. At the complete other side of the resort is a water slide and amazing cabanas that actually have dvd players, fridges and a small TV so you can bring your child’s favorite DVD – a must for me with a child too young to really enjoy the beauty of the resort. They have summer camp like offerings so the kids can play while I play guilt free in the age 14 and older completely secluded, quite and restful spa. There are plenty of onsite dining choices along with a fabulous restaurant (Core) with an open kitchen where you can watch the action – who needs theme parks? I’ll be back with my daughter long before she is old enough to join me in a spa treatment – yay!!

Best Facial I have had in years
I was given Spa Certificates for Christmas from Son and Daughter-in-law and decided to try this new Spa for a facial. Oh what a treat! The setting is gorgoeus up in the Dove Mountain area where to golf tournament is held every year. The place was beautiful and eveyone was so nice. But, on top of all of that the Facial was the best I had in years! I woul go back tomorrow if I could. I would definitely rate this as one of the top Spa's in the country and I have been in Spa's from the East Coast to the West Coast!
