“Great Romantic Get Away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

We were here for a romantic get away and loved it! The room was spacious and very comfortable. Loved the bathroom as well, big bathtub, spacious shower and plenty of room to for two people to get ready at the same time. Our balcony had a view of the pool and a partial view of the mountains as well. The pool had a great atmosphere and the wait staff was very accomodating. We didn't eat at the hotel resaurants, but will give them a try next time. We will definetly be back!

We had a company function in the area and stayed at this resort. It is a beautiful resort. Nicely landscaped. My room was large with a large walk-in shower and a separate deep tub for soaking. I had a balcony overlooking the pool with loungers. The pool was great! The selection of food wasn't that great but the hamburger and quesada was great for lunch. I would definitetly stay there if we are in the area again.

My husband & I took out 16 year old daughter & her friend to the Montelucia for Easter break. Finding a destination that will please teens & adults is often a challenge. Five days at the Montelucia worked so well for all of us that we want to go back asap. The grounds are lovely - a sprawling Mediterranian/Moorish complex right at the base of Camelback Mountain. The trail is a mile long walk from the resort entrance - not a pleasant walk since it's along a busy street. You're better off taking a 40 minute drive to the Tonto National forest for some easy hiking & stunning scenery. Dowtown Scottsdale is an easy 10 minute drive - the galleries on Main Street are a fun afternoon activity, although most people on the Thursday night art walk were senior citizens or people with small kids so my teens were not interested. They were happy moving from pool to pool - the resort has 3 & well behaved teens can hang at the adults only pool (which, of course, they loved.) At night, there is a large selection of outdoor lounge areas and tables with built in firepits so you can enjoy dinner and the desert sky together. The teens had dinner on their own one night and were treated like VIP's. The spa is one of the prettiest I've ever seen - a Moroccan fantasyland where you can wander crystal strewn halls & lounge on beds swathed in white linen. The gym is nice & free, which is not always the case. Try the yoga classes. The food was good & the service very good. And Montelucia's prices were much better than the area's other resorts. All in all, I think we got a lot of bang for our buck at the Montelucia, and will go back again.

Room Tip: If you want quiet at night, request a room as far away from the main pool (the Kasbah) as possible...

I love this review because it is great to see that your teens were able to enjoy themselves and "treated like VIP's"! You are correct, it can be challenging to find a resort setting that caters to everyone in a family...so happy we accomplished this! Please come back to see us!

The Montelucia is a very nice property at the base of the Camelback Mountain. It has two pools (one family and one adult only), nice rooms and delicious food on a sprawling piece of property. I had a wonderful time but was left wondering if the price justified the amenities.

If you want to get away from it all, this is a great location. Just know it is a small drive to any shipping or restaurants off property.

My family and I travelled to Paradise Valley on April 14, 2012 from the Boston, MA area. This was our first stay at the Montelucia Resort and Spa and have to say hands down from arrival to departure this was one top resort. Being a Platinum Ambassador with the Intercontinental group we've stayed at many IC hotels around the world, but the Montelucia ranks at the top for grounds and most importantly the staff just ahead of the Intercontinental Hyde Park London.

We arrived just after dark which was a bummer, but the Montelucia reception/courtyard was lit up with the fire pits which is near the patio of MBar. Check in smooth and quick by Nicole then off to our room in the golf cart with Tom. Tom did a great job stopping along the way to our room to point out all the facilities (didn't ask him to, he just did and was appreciated by me and my wife), and hours of operation. Our room was in the Oasis building room #509, which again Tom pointed everything out. The Oasis buildings are a little further away from the main pool Kasbah and restaurants/bar area and has it's own pool, but adult only. We were there with our 11 year old but no matter. The Kasbah pool is larger with a huge hot tub. Our view of Camelback from our ground floor room was spectacular. The room was very spacious, huge bathroom with a very large tub, glass shower and separate toilet area. Nice 42" flat screen television and oval table for working/eating. The patio had a nice lounge and two side chairs and tables.

Sunday morning was our first full day and took my daughter around to scout everything out. Stopped by Crave (every morning) which is a coffee/pastry/sandwich/drink/gift shop. Very friendly staff and great coffee and pastry's. Here's a kicker about Crave, free refills on coffee all day until 6PM if you bring your cup back. Are you kidding me? A 5 start resort giving free refills? Unheard of. May seem silly but I can go through several cups of coffee first thing in the morning. Everything we ate there was very fresh and at a reasonable price too. After this went to Sunday Brunch at Prado. Great choices of eggs, meats, cheese, fruit and freshly made omelets and waffles. Restaurant very open, with French doors that opened up onto the Prado patio (we ate breakfast out there one morning as well which was great and nice to listen to the water fountains). The staff at the Prado were top notch. Arne and Alex our waiters on several occasions were the best. Always had time for answering questions and very attentive. Arne especially was good with puzzles he gave my daughter to solve and all the staff continually greeted and addressed us by name. Dinner at Prado was also delicious. Get the Fritto Misto appetizer which is a combination of calamari, sole, shrimp and zucchini. I had the Filet of Beef which was like cutting into butter and cooked perfectly. My wife has the salmon and was also delicious. They have a kids menu with a great selection all around $10. Again, the staff at Prado were the best I've had in quite some time.

Sunday nights at 7:30pm or so there is a free outdoor movie in the courtyard by reception Mbar (through May I think). We saw Moneyball which was nice as I hadn't seen it yet. Sat at a Mbar table and our waitress Allison great. Had the antipasti, bread and crackers just to nibble on. Very tasty.

Spent most of our time at Kasbah pool. John our pool attendant made sure our pitchers of ice water were always filled (free), and took care of us when we were in need of food from the ROQ Poolside Bistro.

I could go on and on, but all in all it was a great time, albeit too short. The grounds are immaculate, room was spacious, huge bathroom and a very nice patio to just sit out and view the Camelback mountain. It's very quiet too. No traffic can be heard. Just birds chirping and little bunny rabbits hopping around the grounds. The food and prices at Prado, ROQ, Mbar and Crave were great. All of that is nice, but what made the trip for me and my family was the staff. If I could give a rating higher than 5 it would be a 10. I told the manager at Montelucia this already and commented that all other hotel/resort staff should come to them for training in customer service.

Thank you Montelucia staff. Job well done. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Rooms further away from the Kasbah pool area will be quieter. Remember that Oasis is a "adult...

I was there for a business meeting, and the facilities were excellent. The hotel is spread out over a large area, but the walk from the rooms to the ballroom/meeting areas were not too bad. Meeting facilities were excellent, as were the meals both in the meetings and after.

They have 2 beautiful pool areas - one adult only, the other for families, and they looked great (the weather was a bit too cool and breezy when we were there.) The hotel is relatively close to the airport, which makes it a good location for a business meeting to which you can bring your family.

BTW - LOTS of machines in the workout room!

Stayed here and was going to eat at Crave, until we saw dogs everywhere ! So, we drove
over to Royal Palms Resort and had a wonderful dinner for six....it was such a lovely environment,
we checked out the rooms, and decided to stay THERE on our next trip !!!

So, I guess all the dog madness worked out for us in the long run.

OH NO...you were walking in to our "Yappy Hour" at Crave, our coffee shop! We have this once a month and it is benefitting local pet charities. You should come back and experience PRADO Restaurant with our new Chef, Michael Cairns!
