Our room was upgraded to a wonderfully large living space. Thank you! The staff was always friendly and helpful. The wranglers were by far the best part of the experience. A huge shout out to Angela, Chance and Taylor. The horses were beautiful and well trained.

We stayed at the TV Ranch for 3 nights as part of our spring break. I will break the review into 3 sections and start with the best. 1) Ranch; By far the highlight of the ranch is the horseback riding. The Wranglers at the ranch are top notch and we had a great experience with all the horseback riding...

There would not be space to describe the appalling way this Ranch treats guests. It is very stressful to deal with them. Before we had even arrived with them it took 5 days, 6 emails and constant calling before we managed even to make contact with them. We were travelling from a 6 year old and were filled with dread...

While we were interested in trying horseback riding, it was not the highlight of our time at the ranch. We absolutely loved the mountain biking and the food was delicious! We took advantage of tennis, swimming, and basically enjoying nature - especially the guided nature walks, sunsets and vivid constellations in the dark, clear skies. .

We were guests of a wedding reception on this property. It is a gorgeous desert property, very stereotypical of what one pictures as the Arizona desert. Cocktails were served on the lawn, very tasty appetizers, but the margaritas were very watered down. Guests were ushered into a lovely reception room where the meal was served. My steak was "too rare"...

Tanque Verde Ranch is located in a breathtaking spot on the edge of the Saguaro National Forest. The ranch grounds are beautiful and there are many activities to enjoy along with the riding. The wranglers are professional at all times and all the personnel are helpful. The hikes are beautiful as well as interesting as the area has so many...

Reservations made, nighttime temperature perfect and five couples headed to an expensive picnic table barbecue guaranteed to make your mouth water. Oops - not this Saturday night! Meat was cool at best, vegetables were watery and they ran out of salad and rolls. When I asked if more rolls could be brought out, I was told they ran out and...

My husband and I spent three days at Tanque Verde in mid-March and loved most of the experience. We had a very large room (#35), with a king bed and nicely sized bathroom, overlooking the desert -- with a small patio outside, which was shared with room #36. When we booked the room we were not told the patio was...

We have been wanting to try out the dude ranch experience for quite awhile so decided to finally check one out for Spring Break. My boys are 5 and 7, so I thought this would be a great age to introduce them to the world of horses. It was overall a great family trip!! It is a beautiful property with...

March 5-8, 2017 I spent time with friends at this awesome ranch. From check-in to check-out, we enjoyed this great get-away spot. The room (Casita) was spacious- easily slept 6 with room for more (roll way, crib etc.) It was well maintained and very clean. The only recommendation that I have is to add a mirror somewhere outside of the...
