We decided to have a wedding weekend at Rancho Valencia and it was the best decision! First of all, it's the most beautiful and tranquil setting around. When you can find a place that feels (and sounds) empty when they are 100% full, you know you have found paradise. Second, the resort and its decor is just fabulous. The rooms...

Where to start? Every aspect of our stay at this resort was exceptional and every day brought a new pleasant surprise. From the fresh squeezed juice left at our doorstep each morning to the included spa activities such as spin, yoga, pilates, and finally the way each tennis court is laid out to provide an intimate game experience as if...

I recently visited for two nights with my wife at the tail end of a trip to Palm Springs. It was a truly wonderful visit. We spent two days golfing on local courses (the great concierge arranged for a round at the spectacular Del Mar Country Club) and the balance exploring the area and enjoying the hotel. It was a...

Where do I begin. Property is beautifully nestled in the hills. Everything about the property is well thought out from the arrival to departure. Rooms are extra large, mine had lovely outdoor space and a wonderful bath. Every morning fresh squeezed juice and a paper are outside the front door. Spa is perfection and worth a trip just to for...

The resort has it all. Luxurious villas that have space and good taste. There is the quiet of the patios surrounded by foliage asking you to relax. Then you leave the villa and you find a wonderful spa, swimming pools, tennis courts and winding trails. You can choose how you want to spend your time and it's all there for...

Stayed at RV and never wanted to leave! Absolutely loved this hotel and everything about it. The bungalows are amazing, we had an Olive Grove suite, it was 1000sqft and with a whirlpool on the patio. The patio was massive, we upgraded to this one because the hubby wanted to lounge in his private jacuzzi, it was worth every cent...
