We were there last year when they were in the midst of the refurbishment. I have to say they did an excellent job on the rooms, decorations, fabulous bed, caring and attentive staff. The restaurant serves excellent food for all meals. There is a challenging 9 hole golf course in Aliso Canyon so you are surrounding by majestic hills. We...

CAYCE000, Thank you for choosing to stay with us and we appreciate the kind words regarding the reimagined resort.

The views from the pool and the restaurant were beautiful and the beach is just a quick golf cart ride away. My only complaint was that the balcony to our room was never in the sun so too cold to use during our stay. Rooms were pretty expensive, but we would return again. Staff from pro shop, bens pantry, harvest...

Beautiful resort! Our cottage overlooked the creek, and was beautifully decorated. The bed was unbelievably comfortable. We loved hanging out on the outdoor patio between the restaurant and the golf shop - lots of chairs, couches, fire pits, and all overlooking the golf course. We ate breakfast at the outdoor deck in Harvest Restaurant - good food, great presentation, and...

Pool bar is awesome. Spa is tiny but relaxing. Harvest restaurant has great service and good food. Close to beach so got a beach run in. Definite all-in-one experience. Golf is a good option. Snack bar was a nice option.

The resort is beautifully located in a canyon within walking distance to the beach. The room (Creekside suite) was lovely and peaceful. The service was exceptional. Our daughter left behind her favourite soft toy which the staff found and are sending to us. In the meantime we have received email updates with some hilarious photos of the toy's adventures!

Simply an amazing resort! This trip was for a Mother/ Daughter relaxing getaway during spring break.. We stayed in a Creekside Studio Suite, it was large and very spacious and truly enjoyed relaxing on our private furnished patio that overlooked the creek while listening to birds sing. We had an amazing time being pampered at Sycamore Spa with the best...

Exceeded my expectations in terms of room, service, food and incredible view. Beautiful property. Cell coverage is OK by the creek road, but not in buildings. Patio food and happy hour were great, including music.

Pretty location but understaffed. Services were poor. We did not feel like it was a luxury resort. Had to call numerous times for simple things that other hotels would provide. Towels, coffee, sugar, ice. No true master bedroom. No running water in a weak kitchenette so you have to get water from the bathroom for your coffee. Spa was ridiculously...

Beautiful area, the resort is a quiet retreat nestled in the base of the mountains. The beach is walking distance. The rooms are clean, maintained and tastefully designed. The mornings on the patio are beautiful. The staff is very accommodating. The atmosphere is very relaxed.

Highly recommend The Ranch at Laguna, but probably not for families with young children, but definitely for couples, friends, and large group events. Location is tucked in one of the beautiful canyons of Laguna, with the beach just a half a mile away. A quiet retreat with a spa and exercise facility. Love it!
