The area is wonderful. The location of the ranch great. I visited this property back in 1965 with my Dad and brothers and I don't believe they have updated the rooms since then! I have never paid over $350 per night (even with really terrific meals included) for a room that comes off as a bad joke for an outdated...

I want to clarify a few things. 1. This is not a luxury property. It is as if the Hampton Inn or Quality Inn got a dude ranch. If you are expecting the Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons or anything above a Sheraton (on a good day), don't come here. The rooms are very rundown and I bet haven't been renovated...

My wife and I enjoy being active as well as relaxing during our vacations and the Tanque Verde Ranch offered the best of combinations. The many available activities kept us busy during the mornings and evenings when it was not overly hot; during the afternoons relaxing by the pool was in order to escape the heat. Our room was located...

If you are looking for an experience like no other, Tanque Verde ranch is the place. It is a throw back to the days when cowboys tamed the west- yet with all the luxury of a four start hotel. Meals are exceptional, rooms are comfortable and well appointed- all in the setting of the foothills of the Tanque Verde Mountains....

Coming back to the ranch and seeing it function just like it did when I was a little girl was magical. Rita is running TVR with true elegance, and I am so happy to see it back in it's glory days. Also, the food has never been better! Every single thing I ate was perfect, even the salad dressings are...

Everything was great. Enjoyed the horses, bbq, etc. Unfortunately on my last day I was thrown from a horse during the loping breakfast ride. I do not hold the ranch liable for this accident. However, the front desk promised they would mail my prescription sun glasses to me which never arrived. I talked to the front desk. They promised to...

We enjoyed our stay and our 7-year old daughter had a lot of fun in the kids club. Our room with desert view was gorgeous as well as the pool, hot tub and fitness facilities. Service could be better as well as the wine menu in the restaurant.

If you prepay anything, they are 100% inflexible on making changes or offering credits. They ask you to arrive at tours 15 minutes early then make you wait around for 20 - 30 minutes. This place is very expensive. The grounds are lovely. The customer service falls flat.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tanque Verde Ranch Resort was named "Best Dude Ranch in Arizona" by Dude Republic in 2012, as well as a "Top Ten Family Resort" by the Travel Channel since 2007, and a "Top Five Ranch" by Conde Nast in 2008. Tanque Verde Ranch is one of America’s old time cattle and guest ranches. Located on 60,000 acres of Tucson’s most breathtaking desert landscapes, nestled amongst the Rincon Mountains and adjacent to Saguaro National Park and Coronado National Forest. Established in 1868, the superb guest ranch is recognized as the last luxurious outpost of the old west providing guests with plush accommodations, unparalleled amenities and a vast array of exciting activities such as horseback riding, mountain biking, fishing and hiking. La Sonora Spa is the perfect place for a bit of quiet relaxation, and the kids will love all the supervised children's programs! Don't hesitate – getaway at one of the premier, all-inclusive dude ranches in the country. ... more   less
