Canyon Cafe outside breakfast is delightful. A very nice way to start the day. The buffet has lots to offer.

Host station had a jar of candy, only it was empty besides one piece of candy that was out of the wrapper. They seemed embarrassed when I asked what it was and took it away. No harm no foul, it was kind of funny. When we were sat at our table the table and chairs were dirty. I switched out... More

The menu items were pretty standard, but good. I recommend sticking with ordering regular breakfast items on the menu as the buffet is overpriced at $22 and doesn't have much of a selection in comparison to other Tucson resorts.

Nothing special. It was the only sit down place in the hotel to get breakfast. This was very ordinary. For a resort I was expecting something a little better.

Overlooking the pool and the mountains this is a great space to begin your day. Also adjacent is a carry-out if your in a hurry. Typical offerings with a few tweaks.

The brunch BBQ, with a multitude of meats, down-home cooking and a vast dessert bar is incredible. Comes with champagne and great hospitality. Expensive but never disappointed!

We had lunch outside. Great steak taco salad! Fresh and delicious. Service was good. Was much better than I had anticipated for a poolside cafe!

Lots of food options and omelette station. Very courteous waitress. Food was delicious and plentiful. Dining room was full of people but was not overly loud so you could enjoy talking with people at your table.

Although we thought our favorite Sunday brunch was at Hacienda Del Sol, Ventana just blew it out of the water! From the bottomless mimosas to the fresh oysters, the shrimp, lamb, prime rib, sushi and all the grilled food, etc., ...one word, "stellar"! We will be back again and again

We stayed in the resort for 3 days. It's a very nice well run basic resort. We had breakfast 3 times and lunch once at the Canyon Cafe. The atmosphere is very basic and boring, sort of a high end Denny's. The breakfast is OK nothing outstanding. Lunch was disappointing. I had a mushroom enchilada that was not hot and... More
