This was my first time at a health resort and it was, by far, one of the best experiences of my life! This is a world-class resort unlike any other I had researched or heard of. You are not just a patient or a customer, you are a GUEST, and are treated as such! I loved the program, the food,... More

Nathan Pritikin was an American inventor, nutritionist and longevity researcher who after being diagnosed with heart disease began searching for a treatment and so the book 'Pritikin Diet' came about, touting a diet of low fat including vegetables, fruits, beans, whole grains, and moderate aerobic exercise. He established the Center in 1976. What I like about this Center, as I... More

A stay at Pritikin will truly make you feel better! Not only because of the healthy food you eat and all the excercise you will be doing, but also because of the great staff! From Christina, the in room maid, to Tomasita in the spa, from Lazarro, THE most amazing massage therapist to Vincent the chef who really makes cooking... More

My stress was rising, my blood pressure was rising, my glucose was rising, and my cholesterol was rising...time to get off the corporate roller coaster and take care of me! Having gone to Pritikin 10 years ago with my sister, I knew it was time to go for me and my health. After 1 week, I feel like a new... More

Did not love it. The facility is very tired and until the resort finishes the room upgrade you are dependent on the hotel shuttle to get you anywhere. Also not enough info when you first arrive. The staff is wonderful and helpful

We are sorry that our facility had such an impact on your stay and are sorry that you felt inconvenienced by the shuttle service. As you mentioned, we are upgrading our rooms and we hope you can return once they are done and the facility has been refreshed so that you can enjoy the Pritikin experience to its fullest. More

The staff was fantastic and very professional, they were there to help the guests whenever we needed it. The program is effective and easy to learn and adapt to. The exercise is perfectly designed to push us but is still easy to do and the seminars and cooking classes help us become aware of how easy it is to live... More

I spent one week at Pritikin. I came in to get help with managing my diabetes, my blood pressure and gaining some cooking skills. I received help with all three. The program is well run. They regularly monitored my blood pressure and gave feed back on my diabetes since I opted to test my diabetes daily myself. There were daily... More

In the company of family and friends we celebrated 3 very important Birthdays...40..70..and 80. We all enjoyed the wonderful hotel with their attentive staff and the professionals which guided us through this great experience. Some of us lost weight, others lowered the cholesterol and blood pressure.... and we all learnt healthy tips. Thank you!

The spa has gone through many changes in the years I have been coming here (since 1991) and it gets better and better. We checked in with Luis, who had called me the day prior to confirm.
