“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain is everything you expect from a Ritz. Exceptional service, beautiful surroundings, great food and nice people. The ambiance of the desert setting must be felt in person because words cannot describe it. A truly memorable experience. The golf course was in poor shape and a disappointment but being at the resort made up for the poor condition, slow pace and poor service at the course.

This is a premium top notch hotel. The kids absolutely loved the hotel and its amenities. We loved the staff super attentive! They upgraded us because of my husbands status to a beautiful HUGE suite.!!!

A great property - if you can, get upgraded to a casita - it's a bit of a walk, but all the privacy and space make it worth it.
Pool staff was very friendly and attentive. We ate at the more formal restaurant at the ground level of the property: while expensive , both food and cocktails were excellent, and staff and atmosphere were top notch.

Great service from all employees encountered. Rooms were very nice. Food was good at Core. I was there for a conference and the meeting facilities were very nice. The employees have a very caring attitude. The location is somewhat remote which creates a very peaceful, quiet atmosphere. The golf course was very challenging and the employees in the pro shop were very nice and professional but we did not have a great golf experience - we had to wait on every shot and it took us 6 hours to finish the round. We called the shop and let them know but we did not see a marshall and things never got any better. Besides the golf, it was a great place to stay.

Lovely welcome and great staff generally. Very attentative pool staff and two pools to choose from. Very noisy with children at the weekend but otherwise quiet. Great waterslide even for grown ups! Pool loungers could have been more comfortable but were OK. The best things about this hotel was the view from the magnificent terrace with its comfy fire side seats listening to the haunting Indian flute with a margarita in your hand. We both agreed this was a fantastic setting looking over the mountain. Our room was lovely with a balcony and we loved our hike with Ranger Rick who was great. I have even touched a snake for the first time in my life thanks to him! Overall a very comfortable hotel which I can highly recommend.

Room Tip: A mountain view would be fanstastic!

This hotel is great for a relaxing peaceful holiday, it is surrounded by mountainous scenery, it has two swimming pools one with a water slide which is fast and fun. The staff and service is exceptional, the bedrooms and bathrooms are very spacious. The outside bar area have fire pits that you can sit round in the evening which makes a lovely setting. It has two golf courses nearby but apart from that you will have to drive 30 minutes to shops or attractions and definitely need a car. The breakfast buffet offers a wide variety of fresh food, in the evenings we had organised
