A beautiful location tucked away in Laguna. Dinner was excellent and we really enjoyed sitting on the patio listening to live music overlooking the golf course by the fire pit. I have stayed all around the area and there is not a better value.

We stayed for our 20th anniversary, and we were very impressed with the facility and location. The grounds were so beautiful. And the staff was extremely helpful. Especially Madison who was very helpful and even called us to ask if they can do anything more. We highly recommend staying there!

Spent my wedding night at The Ranch and wasn't that impressed. Beautiful canyon location and scenery, property has a cool vibe but...

My husband and I stayed at The Ranch for a family wedding. We had such a wonderful stay! The folks that work here were awesome! Everyone was extremely friendly and exceptional in customer service (valet, front desk, wait staff, managers, etc). The grounds are beautiful and rustic. Our room was perfect! Nautical decor with the most comfortable bed and pillows!...

Pita650, We are stoked that you were able to attend a wedding at the resort as the canyon wall makes for an ideal backdrop.

The grandeur of the view, as soon as you enter in the property and see the valley and mountains, is very impressive. They seem to have a very nice golf camp, but I didn't use it, so I can't give my impressions on that. The room, on the other hand, was very nice; decorativelly and comfortably well furnished. The shower...

Unable to book taxi to airport causing me to nearly miss my plane. I tried to correct the person at reception but she still booked the taxi for the wrong day. Otherwise hotel was fine but certainly not worth the price with this poor level of service.

We visited the ranch for a wedding. The service was excellent from the beginning. Rooms were comfortable and has everything we needed. Very relaxing. The creek side rooms have a walk in closet. We never left the grounds. Easy to walk to the market for all of our meals. Food was excellent. I would definitely come back
