The location of this hotel is absolutely lovely. The standard rooms are quite large and clean. When we were there in August the spa area was quiet and private. The fitness facilities are excellent. The golf course was a bit worn, but the summer prices were quite low for a round. We experienced great service. When we were overcharged on our bill they corrected it with no questions asked.

We stayed at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort for 3 days and I wish it could have been longer. The view of the mountains, pool and a natual waterfall from our balcony room was wonderful. The Flying J Restaurant had excellent food and service combined with a view of the signature hole on the golf course and the wateralls that front the hotel. The golf course was in excellent shape and fun to play. They have renovatd the rooms recently and everything was clean and up to date. The shower is huge! I wish there had been double sinks, but you can't have everything. The service at this hotel is some of the best I have seen, and I travel a lot. My husband and I can't wait to go back. Oh, I had a massage at the spa and it was excellent.

We returned to the Ventana for our 10th anniversary because we had such a wonderful time a few years ago. We were given a great room with a view of the mountains and the waterfall. Service was generally very good and the staff were very courteous & friendly. We were looking forward to lounging around the pool but did not enjoy it this time - loud, at times raucous music blared non-stop and the pool staff seemed determined to harass us every ten minutes about requests for drinks & food, towels, sun spray etc. Our request to turn down the music was not appreciated and one of the staff marched over & cranked it up. We felt like we were continually under observation. The food at the poolside cafe & across the street at the restaurant was very disappointing - expensive, poorly prepared and tasteless. Go offsite - we found a great sushi restaurant in the River Shopping Center nearby & had a fabulous dinner at The Dish (in the Rum Runner) that was the best meal we've had in years.

We stayed here for five days so we got to know the place. The resort is located in Ventana Canyon and has gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains and the City of Tucson. It is an excellent resort with outstanding and friendly service at all levels and very good outdoor amenities. The room was comfortable and clean and housekeeping did an impeccable job each day. Lots of walking trails for casual strolls on the grounds are available and there is an excellent hiking (and much more challenging) trail behind the resort and nearby (don’t forget to bring lots of water). If you stay here, I would recommend that you take the very short trip to Sabino Canyon. It's simply beautiful!! The spa was clean and relaxing and the therapists were very good. The restaurants on site are also excellent. We really enjoyed the Flying V. The golf course was in great shape. I suspect this is one of the best resorts in the area. Free high speed internet is available in the lobby area which is comfortable but not free in your room. Free parking is available as well.

we travelled here with our 2 little kids and it was a wonderful place to relax after a long drive from Sedona, Arizona. the environment is SO pretty and it was WONDERFUL to get out of the heat and into the pool. the staff are incredibly warm and friendly and when we couldn't get room service to answer the phone, they apologised by giving our room service dinner for free! The rooms are fantastic with good TV. the bathtubs are SUPERB and we loved sitting out on the balcony.
The restaurant is lovely and quiet and they don't throw your food at you, which we found typical of USA restaurants.
I wouldn't stay ANYWHERE else in Tucson but here. It's absolutely tremendous. the check in staff even gave my 2 boys a gift :-)

The experience at Ventana Canyon was consistently exceptional for our four day stay. The location nestled high in the Tucson foothills is ideal. We had a city view on the 4th floor and enjoyed watching the Tucson lights along with the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The room was very clean, well maintained, super quiet and the bed was extremely comfortable. The dining experience was perfect as each day the staff made recommendations based on our dietary needs and our likes and dislikes. We were welcomed each morning for breakfast and the wait staff remembered our preferences. They even went the extra mile one morning by preparing a complementary special tea for my wife. The grounds and hiking trails were well maintained and the private natural waterfall was so enjoyable. We could go on and on but to sum it up, we have stayed at other locations similarly priced and we found this to be the best experience so far. We will definitely return and look forward to the great service and relaxing environment.

Second time at the Loews Ventana Canyon, loved it the first time, but this time, wasn't as nice.
Still love the rooms, with the huge bathtub and TV in the bathrooms.
Balcony the first time around was better with nice city views.
Second time around our balcony was not very private because the way they are positioned, whereby people in other balconys on both sides can see into your balcony, from as far away at 10 balconys down. Many balconies are like that but not all.

Had problems with the pool area this time.
Admittedly the hotel was pretty full with the Mrs. America pageant going on at the hotel, while last time it was alot less crowded.
The pool itself is good, although they have maybe about 50 loungers outside which is probably about 100 less than they need.
They have another "adult" pool by the spa with more loungers but that too was full and the pool is pretty small.
Since there were no chairs or loungers available we just sat in our balcony.

We went back down later in the early evening and there were some loungers available so we put our clothes, books and towels down on two loungers and went directly into the pool.
After about ten minutes, I saw Mrs. Minnesota talking to the towel girl and the towel girl went to our loungers and took our belongings off the lounger and gave the loungers to Mrs. Minnesota and presumably her husband. She then took our belongings back to her station in the towel tent..
It wasn't even ten minutes and we were dispossesed of our loungers and the loungers were right in front of her station so she should have seen that we just arrived especially since we got two towels from her.
Really didn't like that especially since there were other open loungers around.
