This place is mostly women. The week I was there, i was with female family members and there were just 33 men out of 180 guests. Given that it was couple's weekend, that is a pretty good percentage, You will not find a lot of male camaraderie. While there are plenty of mother-daughter, girls week, sisters and couples, I never... More

Rancho is simultaneously elegant and down home. Beautiful grounds, excellent food, great classes, great practices and values embedded in how operation runs. Not the commonly disaffected staff at spas who might be underpaid and feel unacknowledged. I've been three times and I leave restored.

We have just completed our 5th visit to the Ranch and the Rancho continues to delight the senses! The landscape is breathtaking and the management continues to add new things to Rancho La Puerta to fill the senses. There are 3 resident artists willing to share their time and talents to inspire your artistic side...whether sculpting, painting, jewelry making and... More

I was coaxed down to the Ranch by my significant other. I can tell you that my view of RLP is somewhat positively enhanced by the fact that she simply loved the place. If I had been there alone, I would have likely given it a much lower rating only because the experience was the opposite of what I usually... More

Rancho La Puerta is such a magical place. I have never returned from a vacation feeling so relaxed and full of life. In addition to the many activities to choose from you will also meet a lot of wonderful people. Then there's the food! I am not a vegetarian but I did not miss eating meat at all while I... More

I have been returning almost annually over the past 12 years with friends. It is a perfect escape for everyone-singles to couples.The majority are single women or groups of female friends coming for a relaxing escape. I have met many single women who are there post divorce, newly retired, or going through a stressful time. It is a great place... More

I absolutely loved my week at Rancho La Puerta! It was the perfect vacation to relax and recharge... a true nourishment for body, mind and soul. This was my first time here so I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but I walked away from this trip feeling completely rejuvenated and inspired. The beautiful grounds, the wonderful spa cuisine, the... More

My daughter and I went for a week to have time together without having to make any decisions except for which classes should we take and what to have for dinner. It far exceeded my expectations even though I've had girlfriends over the years rave about it, it just seemed beyond my reach. But this year I stretched and I... More

I've waited a few weeks to write my review because I wanted to see how well the program worked for me and to get some distance and perspective on the food. The accommodations and grounds at RLP are fantastic. Note: You can request specific rooms when you make the reservation, so look carefully at the map to find your ideal... More

Siempre Major, always better, is the perfect motto for this getaway week from civilization and a blueprint for a healthy life style. An early morning hike up the mountain followed by breakfast by the pool and then the buffet of fitness classes and fun in the sun is a great way to spend a week. The view from our villa... More
