Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia
Ranked #3 of 5 Hotels in Paradise Valley
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We stayed at the Montelucia for 3 nights over New Years. This is a top notch resort with excellent service. Days before our arrival the resort called and sent a couple of emails to find out if we had any special requests, etc.I do not recall getting a personalized phone call from the past hotels and resorts we have stayed at.

We tried to get a early check in but with the holiday and bowl games in the Phoenix area we did not expect it to happen. The front desk called as soon as our room was available which was still before the resorts 3pm check in time.

The room: We had a Camelback Mountain view room that is just one step up from the standard resort view room. Very large room with a large balcony. The bathroom is VERY large with one sink. The bed was also excellent.

Fitness Facility and Spa: We did not workout but did walk around the facilities. Plenty of equipment for cardio and weight training. They also offer classes that include spinning bikes.

We called the front desk a couple of times. Once for a toothbrush and then a newspaper. Both were delivered in less than 5 minutes.

Even though it was 32 degrees one morning we did go to one of the pools. Very clean and plenty of towels. Even with it being a very cold morning (by Arizona standards) the pool was very comfortable.

We plan on going back.

After our wedding, my husband and I went to stay at the Montelucia because that is where he proposed to me and our stay was amazing. This trip was no different. When we first arrived we noticed they had made some changes to the center of the resort, including the addition of Centro Lounge - a modern sports bar right next to the pool. I thought this was a great addition to have not just because we are huge football fans, but because the floor to ceiling glass walls made you feel like you were outside while still enjoying the A/C. It also had great food and drinks that were slightly more casual than Prado.

However, we did go to Prado for our celebration dinner because we knew that it was a great restaurant for any special occasion. The dinner of course was delicious and romantic, but after mentioning to the hostess we were just married, we came back to our hotel room and were surprised with a complimentary bottle of champagne. I felt that their gesture was so thoughtful and honestly was the cherry on top of a wonderful stay.

If you have the opportunity to stay at the Montelucia, I highly recommend that you do. The staff and service was just as great as the first time we stayed there. And just on a final note: enjoy the Joya Spa...it was by far the best massage I ever had. If you are staying during the week, check out their happy hour rates and days.

Room Tip: Stay as close to the main pool as possible. The aroma from Prado's kitchen will make it all the...

My husband and I were treated to a night's stay for our wedding night. Beautiful grounds, courteous bell staff, luxurious suite with old world charm. We had an excellent dinner at Prado and loved our waittress! Had a few "hiccups" during the brief stay (housekeeping, room service), but each challenge was met with excellent follow through and attention by staff and management. Special recognition to Brandi at Centro Lounge and Bridgette Ramirez for going completely above and beyond our expectations! You are a big part of the reason this review received 5 out of 5!

Ever pull a name out of a the internet hat and strike gold? We did with our four day stay at the luxurious Montelucia Resort & Spa. Mountain of light is right! Our upgraded room with a view of the Camelback Mountains was a constant delight in any light. Spectacular sunset views. My sisters and I took in this view on 12/12/12 at 12:12, at the Kasbah (poolside of course) then we migrated to the Oasis Pool. Although the entire grounds were our personal oasis. The wait staff was consistently gracious and genuinely friendly. The gentleman at the front desk was superior in his service, very professional. ~ The breakfast was amazing complete with a variety of perfect Bloody Marys if you so desire to start the day at dawn rather than dusk. We had a special package that included breakfast, free parking, $25 resort credit - I highly recommend this! Rooms were tasteful, great bedding and wonderful bath. The grounds are so exquisite and the understated Moroccan architecture was so tasteful, I spent more time actually at the resort rather than sightseeing. Sometimes just relaxing is difficult, but not at this first class resort. I will return!

Room Tip: We enjoyed the Carmelback Mountain view. You will love the lounges on your balcony!

We had an amazing time on this trip. The room was large with a king size bed, sofa, table, coffee tray, and large balcony with a beautiful view. The linens and bedding were remarkable with the robes being some of the best I've ever seen. The bathrooms were spacious and luxurious with A huge shower and nice bathtub. The staff was accommodating and very welcoming. They even made it a point to greet us by name. We will definitely be staying here again. As a side note...the resort sent amazing chocolate truffles to our room since we were celebrating a birthday. Very thoughtful!

We recently stayed at the Montelucia Resort & Spa in Paradise Valley, AZ. The grounds and rooms are spectacularly decorated and well kept. The pool areas are beautiful and complement the surroundings in the desert mountains, (you can see the Camelback Mountains from anywhere on the grounds and they are close!), The spa and fitness center are first class and the restaurants and lounges are also first rate. We couldn't say enough about the wonderful service we received from everyone at the resort. They were so helpful and welcoming. The front desk staff, the concierge, all the staff in the front and security were so helpful. The restaurant staff also were wonderful. We would recommend this resort without hesitation. We will definitely return! Linda and Bill Frumkin

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the mountains.

Nice rooms, nice layout, property is high end and the sheets and pillows were great. Bathroom was spacious and the tub/shower were both as good as you can get. No noise, peaceful. No complaints, will return again if the opportunity arises. Staff was helpful and the food was equally good.
