“Everyone Needs to Go Once in Their Life!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

My last trip was my third trip to Canyon Ranch. I love this place and it is one of my sanctuaries. I recommend booking an LEC package versus just going there. You meet wonderful people and the staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. You really learn how Canyon Ranch operates and are given good advice on how to spend your time here. For my money, there is no other place like Canyon Ranch. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the air conditioner works fabulously. The food is excellent and all included! Make sure you do the Lunch & Learn series. There is any number of exercise activities to try as well as spa services, health services, etc. The grounds are beautiful and calming. There are 4 pools with numerous water exercise classes. It's a great motivational place in addition to helping you with any medical issues you may be having. There are superb exercise physiologists here to help you also. Bottom line, for me, Canyon Ranch is the place to go because you get what you want, when you want it and how you want it--and with a smile! How often does that happen? Canyon Ranch is the top bar that I rate all of the other places I stay.

That being said, I noticed that in this stay (end of May/early June), the wait staff would forget what you asked them to get you and you would have to ask again. Seemed as if they were also short on wait staff. I have noted in general that wait staff everywhere is getting a little forgetful! This still is "the" place to go for me.

Room Tip: If you are doing an LEC (Life Enhancement) program, get a room closer to the Life Enhancement Center...

Nutritionists, Therapists, Spiritual advisors, cooking lessons, craft times and so many other amazing activities.The lectures were wonderful and so helpful You can also relax by the many pools and read a book.

My husband booked our first trip to CR over 10 years ago. We loved it then, and now that we have been guests 6-7 times, we love it just as much, perhaps even more! It's a healthful retreat that can make you feel like a new person by the time you leave. Do you want to go on an early morning guided bird-watching hike? Would you enjoy making beautiful jewelry in one of the many jewelry class offerings? Would you like to: Sign up for a 2-hour cooking class? Have a lovely massage/facial/new haircut? Consult a numerologist or astrologist? Get a first (or second) medical opinion on a physical problem? Have an exercise physiologist or QUALIFIED physical trainer help fine-tune your workout? Consult a nutritionist for advice customized to your needs? Take an underwater Zumba class? Attend a drumming class where you get to play African drums led by a drumming specialist? All of these (and more) are activities that are available at Canyon Ranch! Most of these I chose to do this week (I returned home today after a week-long stay at CR) and each time I go I find new things to do. THIS ISN'T "JUST" A SPA!! Although world-class spas are lovely, sometimes you just need more. MUCH MORE! And everyday you can have delicious ice cream, cookies, smoothies, pecan french toast and berries, gourmet salmon or beef burgers, unending snacks - whatever YOU CHOOSE to have in whatever amount you want!
And- the rooms are beautiful! They have been remodeled and include a selection of at least 10 DIFFERENT kinds of pillows from which to choose, the best linens; comfort is EVERYWHERE. I am so glad I've been able to partake of what Canyon Ranch has to offer; I look forward to returning for MANY years to come!

Room Tip: You can get maps of the premises from the staff or online; We like staying in 106 - 115, because tho...

Canyon Ranch Tucson was outstanding. I am a mother to 5 month old twins. Guest services very kindly delivered a box freezer to my room so I could freeze my breast milk during my stay. I was able to go home with a whole ice chest full of milk for my babies. The exercise classes are incredible. The staff is so friendly. The hikes and bikes are incredible and all of your needs are taken care of.

My first experience at Canyon Ranch and I found it to be more than I ever expected. The staff and accommodations were first class and very accommodating of any and all requests...all with a smile. Everyone I was in contact with seemed to really enjoy their job and it showed. The lectures, treatments were fantastic! Our room was perfect. I truly enjoyed the "healthy meals, never felt like I was missing anything. Everyone should try and experience a week at Canyon Ranch!! Pat King

This was my second visit and I wasn't disappointed! I came with three girlfriends for a week of wellness, exercise, growth and healthy eating. We all had an amazing time. The service is terrific, where everyone went out of their way to ensure we were happy and taken care of. I can't recommend this place enough. We will be back!!!

I truly wish that the rest of the world was as well-run as The Canyon Ranch at Tucson!
The setting is beautiful and the campus provides opportunities for both reflection and relaxation as well as recharging one's body and spirit. There are lovely sculptures and charming venues to discover all throughout Canyon Ranch. The Sonoran Desert provides spectacular venues and superb air. The room was spacious -- although you don't spend much time in the room -- you are too busy doing other things! The beds are comfy, the baths were spacious and well appointed. There is a unbelievable spa just steps away to luxuriate in ways that accommodate any wish.
The staff is very, very accommodating. Service is seamless and no one is hovering over you, but there is still attention to your needs. Everyone in all levels of service at Canyon Ranch are well trained, knowledgeable, and ready to help you in any way. The instructors were so very helpful and encouraging in the activities. They also push one to do more. I learned a lot. I also found that the messages were pretty much consistent --everyone was pretty much on "the same page" despite many different disciplines at Canyon Ranch.
I can't wait to return. I am motivated to get myself in shape and I thank Canyon Ranch for pointing me in the right direction with a very logical and useful program.

Room Tip: Lower numbered rooms are near the clubhouse and the cafe.
