Before coming I read mixed reviews about Green Valley. I am an experienced spa-goer and have been to Miraval, Lake Austin Spa and the Golden Door. Green Valley is a somewhat different experience, but overall I gave it above average marks:
My likes: very comfortable room, plenty of bath products and a jacuzzi tub, coffee was always brewing (Starbucks!), great hiking with knowledgeable guides (you need to get off the property and do some hikes in the desert/canyons to really get the experience - its invigorating and inspirational), a low key atmosphere - it is not a physical bootcamp or a fat farm - you can push yourself as much or as little as you want. Food was excellent. The workout room was very modern and large with new equipment - frequently I was the only one there using it and I felt like I had my own private gym.
I was neutral about the treatments. They were pretty good, but not exceptional. The spa facility is okay, but could benefit from an updating and a more comfortable quiet area where you wait for your treatments. I did really like the products they used and purchased some to bring home
My dislikes were minor: I found the program scheduling a little too tight and in some cases odd. Meditation was scheduled at 1:00 p.m. - who wants to meditate on a full stomach? If you wait until after class to eat, lunch has already ended. Also the evening programs started at 7:00 p.m. Since many people are still finishing their dinner at 7:00 you either have to rush to finish dinner or miss the program. Starting it at 7:30 or 7:45 would seem much more logical. I missed out on one or two things I wanted to do b/c things were so tightly scheduled and I refused to rush.
Overall, though, a very relaxing experience and I would go back esp for the great hiking experience
