This was my 2nd visit to Miraval. I have been to the "other" Tucson resort 5 times, but this time Miraval was exactly what I needed. The staff and the experiences are unparalleled. I signed up for the zip line and mountain biking, and both times I realized that these "activities" are merely vehicles to learn how to live with... More

Just returned from a 4 day visit to Miraval. It was everything that I expected and more. The classes and activities are challenging and fulfilling. Everyone on the staff was warm and welcoming.

Everything is included - all meals, work-out classes, happy hours, juice bars, etc. Some rooms even come with spa treatments (ours came with one treatment a day but we were leaving pretty early on our last day so we opted for an hour and one half treatment the day before - which was amazing!) It can get very hot but... More

This was my first visit to Miraval. It is a beautiful place, and the staff was very friendly. The food was excellent; the classes were varied and almost all were really great and as advertised. But I was there on Memorial Day weekend, and the resort seemed underprepared for the crowds. The toilet in my room had not been thoroughly... More

Have been going to Miraval for 15 years and this is the 4th owner. It is not what it used to be and in some way only average. The toilet paper was worse than a public rest room. Towels and robes were very rough. Staff in the spa was very young and had no manners. Make up staff in the... More

This was my fourth trip to Miraval in the last 7 years. It is truly a wonderful, beautiful and special place. The spa treatments are incredible and the spa atmosphere is our bliss.

I had an amazing weekend trip with two of my girlfriends at Miraval. We loved eating dinner in our spa robes! The Equine experience (I lifted the hoof!), Floating Meditation and Thai massage are not to be missed. Also just take a moment and look at the mountains and breathe. There is a specialness to the place itself that vibrates... More

I stayed at Miraval at the end of April as part of a training program. We spent 5 days there and it was magical from start to finish. Our room was enormous and the beds were amazing - I felt like I slept on a cloud all week. No ask of the staff was too big or too small. In... More

I was a loyal Miraval customer for years. However the changes made over the past years resulted in my decision to "break up" with Miraval and go to Canyon Ranch. Miraval has lost its focus on service and value. Charging for morning hikes? Charging for extra food? I remember when there used to be a refrigerator next to the pool... More

Having visited Miraval several times, we have noticed that is becoming more corporate and less concerned about the individual experience of people. Although the employees do a wonderful job with what they are given from the management, I noticed that the management asks for reviews, but does not respond to negative reviews. They are now charging $15 per hike, which... More
