I spent one week at Pritikin and will attest to the excellent lectures provided. However unless you were a repeat client then think again and expect very low customer service. The staff pro-actively engage with repeat clients only, the difference if it's first time is very apparent particularly if you come on your own. The bedrooms are of a high... More

The medical staff - from the front desk to the doctors - were all exceptional. All provided excellent care, attention and follow up after my return home. Programs were packed with information and all the presenters were knowledgeable and motivational. Kimberly, Jay and the staff doctors made sense of the noise around nutrition and lifestyle, and brought medical, fact-based information... More

When deciding on place to use for my 2016 detox I utilized Trip Advisor as a goto for feedback. With 275++ 5 star reviews I was extremely excited about going to Pritikin. The first night we were there we went to an "orientation" seminar and came to find out that each person that stayed at the resort and gave a... More

This is the fifth time visiting Pritikin. It is life changing and always worth the visit. However, a couple of issues need to be addressed. First, the business center computers did not work for five days. The tech person was out for a few days and they have no backup. Secondly, some of the exercise equipment needs to be replaced....

As a physician, I can attest to the excellent of the medical and nutrition/exercise program. But if you're looking for organization, hotel staff courtesy, and a 5 star hotel experience, don't come here. The Pritikin Hotel Staff seemed overwhelmed, and at times, were downright rude. Repeat customers openly got preference. Staff couldn't answer my questions. They need someone to get... More

Pritikin will change your life. Gives you the tools and information you need to have a healthier life. The first couple of days will be challenging.

I had to lose a lot of weight and wanted to kick-start that. There are a lot of residential spa options to choose from. I ultimately chose Pritikin not only because its well defined diet made sense to me. Also because it was the only spa i found during my research that has an on-site medical staff.

The only longevity spa of its kind that educates as well as feeds and pampers you. Not for the New Age advocates but for those interested in good health, energy and provable nutrition and medical information. Exercise program combined with medical analysis and daily lectures, located at Trump Doral, with its excellent Spa facilities and gold resort.
