“Everyone should come to Pritikin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

My husband and I have been here for 5 days and already we are feeling better, blood sugar in normal ranges, all blood factors are in range and weight is down. The education is better than anything you can read or hear. Everyone would benefit by attending Prikitin.

The program is second to none - the education is phenomenal and the staff are wonderful. Very patient and kind, willing to answer any questions you have. The food takes a bit to get used to, but once you adjust it's wonderful too. Highly recommend for anyone looking to improve their health and quality of life.

Myths and misconceptions are corrected as you learn how to eat mindfully and healthily. The protocols are based on science not conjecture. If you are looking to make lifestyle change to lower your blood pressure or cholesterol under medical supervision there is no better place to go. It takes a few days to adjust to the no salt, no sugar, no oil diet- I put hot sauce on everything- but your taste buds do change and the food becomes progressively more palatable. I liked that there was a large round table for singles who wanted to socialize with some other guests. The facilities are in desperate need of a redo though- the rooms in the two remote buildings - no rooms are in the main facility- are small and unimpressive - but you spend very little time in them. The frequent rains caused a problem getting around without getting soaked. The staff all around are friendly and so very nice- always looking to make your experience better. The supervised classes are excellent and a great way to get in shape without getting hurt. I do plan to return with my husband, despite the terrible rooms, because of the exceptional educational program.

Room Tip: Maybe a suite?

PritikinCenter, General Manager at Pritikin Longevity Center & Spa, responded to this review, August 14, 2013
Thank you for your very nice review of the Pritikin program. We are happy to say that just last week the Trump Hotel Collection announced a comprehensive transformation of the facilities which will include 640 completely remodeled guestrooms; revamped main building, lobby, fitness center, ballrooms, pool and spa and more!

The new guestrooms will be adorned in a chic palette of elegant neutrals accentuated with Mahogany wood and gold leaf Spanish revival details. Furnishings will be comprised of lush fabrics and classic herringbone and geometric patterns for additional glamorous touches.
We look forward to your return to Pritikin and Trump National Doral Miami - and depending on when your next stay will take place, the room renovations may be complete.

Thank you,
Hubert E. Wewer

A great way to kickstart your quest for fitness! Lots of valuable information for a lifestyle change! Wish I had done this earlier in life, but it is never too late and a fabulous program for all ages. Great results in blood sugar and blood chemistry numbers. Expect to work hard while you are here -- this is NOT a rest and relaxation type of stay, although there are wonderful yoga classes and fabulous spa services. The kitchen and dining room staff, the concierge, and the medical team all focus on YOU the whole time you are here and make sure you leave empowered to be successful for a lifetime. The Doral property is beautiful, but the standard rooms are a little tired and could use refurbishing and you can hear guests in other rooms talking through the walls.

One of the best places for health and awareness.
After attending the lectures you will wonder how you have been eating all your life.
The Staff are amazing in the kindness and service. They memorized all my likes and dislikes. What type of tea I drink and how I like it.
The rooms were large and great.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the golf course are the best
