“Lovely grounds, average room”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

We stayed last week at the Tubac Golf Resort & Spa for 2 nights in a Queen Casita. It was spacious and the surrounding grounds were lovely. My complaints? Tired furnishings (armoire with a handle missing; small, old television; stained draperies), inexpensive finishes (laminate bathroom counter with painted plywood-looking cabinet), and slow, intermittent Internet. I can live with this in an inexpensive room, but our bill for 2 nights was $473.53. At that price, I expect more. We've traveled all over the world and I am almost always happy with hotel accommodations (see my other reviews), but this this was a big disappointment. Others in our group were of the same opinion.

Room Tip: I heard the Hacienda rooms are lovely; if I ever return, I'll keep that in mind.

We booked the Stay and Play package at Tuac Golf Resort. The villa was sparkling clean with quaint southwest decor. Each unit is on the ground floor and has it own patio. The grounds are very well kept with acres of grass which is unusual in Arizona.
The golf course is in great shape. The 27 hole format can lead to some very long rounds.

Room Tip: I didn't see any distinct difference in the room locations.

Just back from 2 days stay at Tubac Golf Resort. Took friends from England with us, and spent the days golfing, resting and eating very well. The hotel is a great little hidaway, down south of Tucson. Front desk where very accomodating and friendly. The rooms (Hacienda Suite) are spacious. Great bathroom and a nice patio looking out over a golf fairway. The rooms are a bit tired looking but well worth the price. We had dinner at the Stable restaurant, and all of us were very surprised over how wonderful a meal we had. The over all service is good, but not outstanding. The staff is missing the caring aspect of hospitality. They do what they have to do but not more. The golf course was in good shape and we had a wonderful time playing and enjoying the fantastic weather.

We stayed at Tubac golf resort again, because we love the atmosphere of calm when arriving. Our first stop is a at the " golf bag drop" where we not only get greeted nicely with a hug, but have everything taken care of for our golf arrangements.
The next stop is the check-in. We were not disappointed here either. A very nice welcome and check-in to a fabulous golf course view "Hacienda Room". Lovely location for winter, because you can see the sunset. Our room is wonderful, fireplace, nice patio, very cozy.
We strolled the grounds,very well kept, and settled at Stables Bar outside, to watch golfers hit over the island green. A very peaceful sight. Walked to Ponchos, Home Store, fabulous site of authentic southwestern furniture and items.
Dinner at Stables Restaurant was excellent. Our waitress, Vicky, very experienced and friendly, made the night. Delicious dinner and lovely view . We planned a dinner the next night at another location in Tubac , but changed our minds, and came back to Stables, where we had an even more delicious dinner the next night, waited on by excellent waiter, Josh. Delicious food again.
Dennis Palmer, VP & Head at Pro Shop, made our golf reservations smooth. He, and Ben, Golf Pro, have a handle on repeat customers that is admirable. Dan, another pro golf instructor, has been known to give a quick golf lesson right on the sidewalk, while greeting or saying goodbye. He actually helped me with a "golf chip " problem, the result of which I use to this day.
Tubac Golf Resort is doing something right. They remember you and treat you like special guests each visit. We are coming back again .

Room Tip: Winter months, ask for Hacienda Room with sunset view .

My husband and I spent a quiet weekend in one of the hacienda king suites. The room was nicely appointed and very clean These rooms are the most recently renovated and quite nice. We asked for a room more private, and were given a room near the chapel, out of the traffic flow..( not that there is a lot of traffic!). We ate in the bar one night..(the restaurant is rather expensive), and one night we drove to a mexican restaurant that was recommended by a friend closer to the border (Sorry I can no longer remember the name..it was mediocre anyway.) All in all, this was a nice weekend and I would go back again.

Beautiful property. Quite a surprise to see all the lush, green grass and water in an otherwise arid area. If you are a golfer you will appreciate the course. Lovely pool, jacuzzi and spa. Restaurant is superb. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms are soundproof unlike some properties we have visited.

We stayed in a pet friendly, hacienda room. It was a little worse for wear. One of the panes of glass in the window was cracked. It appeared as though a previous guest may have left a pet in the room unattended. The door had been shredded as a result of a pet clawing the door. The area rug on the floor was well worn and curling at the edges. However, there was absolutely no lingering pet odors from previous guests and a sign had been place in the room to advise that the room had been specially treated to remove any cigarette odor. It was a non-smoking room. Very muted lighting.

A little disappointed with the room as we paid 179.00 for the first night and 199.00 for the second night. Definitely not a budget hotel.

The hotel is not within easy walking distance of the village of Tubac, a car or bicycle would be required.

This is our third annual visit to Tubac and it has become a favorite destination. Very quiet and low-key, impeccably maintained grounds and property and very guest-focused staff all around. The mountain/golf course from the restaurant are a wonderful start to the day. Lots to do in the area or a perfect to sit in the son( or shade) with a book and relax.

Room Tip: Good variety of sizes and options based on how much room you need or want.
