During our recent family vacation to Phoenix, Arizona, we decided to head down to Tucson for a short visit. We were looking for a quiet, family-friendly hotel, and ended up staying at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort. It offers some fabulous kid-friendly amenities as well as some luxury amenities, and is located in a quieter area of Tucson.
We arrived late in the afternoon on our first day, and immediately dined at the on-site Flying V Bar and Grill. Although we didn’t try the signature guacamole, we still really loved the food, and the service was fabulous. The other resort restaurants offer more casual fare, like breakfast, bar food, and lunch. Since we were only there for two nights, we weren’t able to check out the other restaurants.
Service at the resort was excellent, with staff members available to help us at just about every turn. Our room, a two-double bed room, was spacious and comfortable. We loved the large, oversized bath tub, the television in the bathroom, and the Keurig coffee maker. Our room had a city view, which was absolutely beautiful in both the evening and the morning.
Loews Ventana Canyon offers a kids’ camp, a spa, outdoor pool, whirlpool, lounge, golf courses and a desert window walk. We checked out the outdoor pool, and the kids really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, we didn’t have time to enroll the kids in the kids’ camp for the day, but we did enjoy the desert window walk – a beautiful walk around the resort installed with the assistance of the Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum. I wish we had more time to explore the resort, so we’ll definitely be back.
Expect to spend between $110-$400, depending on season and room type.
