We have stayed here more times than I can count. We love the western feel, the layout of the rooms, the comfortable beds and the private patios. Great place to see the "dark skies" of Arizona. So many stars! We bring our bikes and ride all over Tubac. We will be back!
Much in the room in need of repair —— sagging couch, ripped upholstery. Comfortable bed. Poor restaurant service & borderline rude registration reception. Confusing directions to the room / casita that did not seem clean —— in need of a wet mop and dust rag. Not what we expect for $300+ nite.
We had a lovely suite, old style SW, but well furnished and with nice linens, but none of the workers seem to have received any training. The receptionist did a horrible job of directing us to our room - numbers are not on the street side of the building, but we had to drive around a lot of the complex and walk through several of the mazes before we were about to locate our room - not fun! Then the room temp was set at 63 degrees. Really?!! Took us till nite time to get the room warmed up even tho it was 90 degrees outside. In the process we discovered that the living room fire place did not work. Receptionist said fireplaces are turned off for the summer (bedroom fireplace worked just fine!), but there was no indication in the room they were turned off, and gas was flowing - could have been a real problem. Cleaning service was perfunctory at best. No vacuuming, no replacing. empty tissue dispensers, no replacing burned out light bulb even though we left it conspicuously on the table - where it remained throughout our stay (and believe me, we needed all of the light we could get!). At well over $300 a nite, I just expect better. Not a luxury resort by any means, in spite of the nice room. Will NOT be staying there again!…
Adorable resort on beautiful green grounds. My dog got his own welcome package (with treats and a little stuffed animal) and they were happy to seat us outside. Very pet-friendly. Food was good - could be spicier. The historic property is well-maintained. To note for travelers: there is no food/drink service at the pool, so bring your own snacks and drinks (some restrictions on glass, etc). There are fridges in the rooms but no mini bar or microwave, so snack accordingly. To note for the hotel - you need to have cotton sheets. These poly microfiber synthetic fabric sheets really bring down the quality of sleep at the hotel and give this a discount roadside motel vibe that is not consistent with the elegance of the rest of the resort.
Our one-day trip to Tubac was a fabulous get-a-way with a spacious room with an awesome bathroom jet-tub. Service was friendly and room was clean and very large. Lovely little patio off the back was charming and relaxing to have a drink before our dinner.
This is not a balanced review of the resort. Overall it probably deserves a 4 or 5 star review. From my perspective, 3 stars is generous, mainly because there is almost constant noise and gas fume pollution from the lawn mowers and blowers. Restaurant experience was uneven - from an excellent salmon dish and friendly waitresses, to undercooked oatmeal and a surly waiter at breakfast.
We recently at the Stable Ranch Grill at the Tubac Golf Resort in Tubac, AZ. The food was good but the guitar player was so loud that we could NOT have a quiet dinner conversation. We also asked our server to see if the volume from the speakers could be decreased but never saw it happen. The live music was listed as happening on Fridays and Saturdays but it was still there on a weekday. Because of this none of us will stay at the resort again.
My husband & I visited the Tubac Golf Resort and Spa last Saturday for massages and lunch. It was a PERFECT day and our massages were unparalleled! Michelle Sidlacek is always gracious as her staff is as well. Everything thing at the Spa is spotless and comforting . Our lunch was amazing! So fresh and nutritious and we were so satisfied to sit in the sun and enjoy the beautiful views. The Staff here is amazing as well! We look forward to our return!
So disappointed with our time here. Had high hopes, but just not met. First off, it’s way overpriced. From the rooms to the food, the cost for everything was so high. We upgraded our room to the Hacienda King which we were excited about, but once assigned the room, it was right on the corner of the resort entrance. There was constantly people and cars going by, no privacy, and headlights in our room throughout the night. I will say, the inside of the room was lovely, and we used the fireplace every day. Large bathrooms and comfy bed. From there, we went to the Stables bar and then restaurant for dinner. Staff was terrible - while we sat at the bar, they congregated in the corner while we waited. Drinks were meh and overpriced. Once we sat down for dinner (after moving from outside to in because no one came to take our order), things didn’t get much better. We were especially hungry, so each got a salad and then shared an appetizer. Plus two drinks (a house red and a well drink), the total was $100…. And to top it off, everything was just not good. Service was terrible, had to ask for our check several times - all around not a great experience. We were planning on going back for several meals, but opted just to go to the grocery store to get food in the room. I did go to the spa and it was GREAT! Had a massage and facial done and was very impressed. Other than that - resort left a lot to be desired. I think it’s probably a very nice country club for members - but lacking in the hospitality realm. We weren’t provided with any information upon check in (time restaurants were open, golf information, local activities, etc.). We’re young and just looked it up online, but would’ve been nice to have that info. I promise we’re not high maintenance - we just expected a lot more for what we were paying.…
A recent visit to Tubac was interesting to say the least. My background with the golf resort is extensive and long. I’ve been visiting for over 20 years and was married there in 2005. A health-related cancellation in August 2020 left my wife and I unable to take advantage of a generous offer to get a free room up grade. Our request for an upgrade for our 2021 stay went no where. Additionally, the reservation person on the phone was downright rude, at one point asking me, after some conversation confusion, if “I had trouble hearing?”. So I hung up and booked online. A late Sunday night arrival led to another upgrade denial. The room we were booked into was horrible. A small posada was small, equipped with two queen beds that could have served as trampolines, so worn out and springy they were. The room was next to the maintenance area, where the dumpster for the resorts trash is located and the lid of the dumpster is never closed. The room was clean on first glance but a previous guests socks under the bed made us wonder. The next day, we were upgraded to one of the best rooms, a hacienda suite on the golf course. Much better but showing it’s age. These rooms are in serious need of refurbishment. Overall, the resort is dowdy. Besides the dumpster issue, there is trash consistently under the landscaping shrubs. They seem to have a high turnover rate in employees. Most are friendly and pleasant. The one open restaurant had a very limited menu of oddly themed items and was quite expensive, and not very good. We had breakfast burritos from the golf course snack shack the next morning that were very good, but never went back to the restaurant. The resort benefits from a gorgeous location, beautiful landscaping.and mostly friendly and accommodating employees. The downside is the obvious lack of care and maintenance. No help was offered to move our stuff to the new room. That was not a surprise as there never has been a bellhop service or the equivalent offered. An older guest such as myself would appreciate it. The initial room we spent one night in should be retired and never rented to anyone again, it was so bad in so many ways. The resort certainly doesn’t meet the standards of a AAA 4-star facility IMHO, which is how they are marketed. I feel like we won’t return unless changes are implemented. I think the lack of close-by competition has led to a culture on contentment on managements part, and changes need to be made or guests will simply find another resort, say in Tucson, where they can stay in style and enjoy a true 4-star environment.…
