Everything about the hotel is beautiful from the grounds to the details on the doors to each room. The staff is very friendly and attentive to your needs, no matter the task they were always willing to assist. The location is about 15-20 minutes from downtown San Jose making it very convenient for tours to pick up. They even serve... More

This is a small boutique hotel up on a hill overlooking the mountains and Santa Ana. We loved it. The staff was friendly, our room was very clean, the bed comfortable, and the afternoon breeze wonderful.

The Ringle Resort is a curious place - nearly deserted, yet offering beautifully manicured grounds and 4 star accommodations. But something felt odd - we rarely encountered other guests. The hotel is about a 30 minute drive from San Jose airport. It has the feel of a private villa with a beautiful view overlooking the city. The family room is... More

We had an early flight from SJO, so we stayed at this hotel the night before. Many of the hotels in the San Jose area seem sketch, but this hotel was a perfect retreat. The staff was absolutely amazing. Alexandro printed our boarding passes for us, helped us get directions to the rental car drop off point, and did everything... More

This place is absolutely beautiful. We felt like we were pampered guests staying at a celebrity's private home. I've stayed a lot of different kind of establishments all over the world, and I've paid 5–6x more a night for upscale lodgings than I paid at Ringle Resort, but I don't think I've ever stayed in so lovely a room.

We’re thrilled to hear your visit to Ringle Resort was met with great satisfaction. We spent nearly a year remodeling the entire resort, appointing each room with plush furniture and bedding while installing state of the art showering systems considered the best on the market. Most rooms feature multiple showerheads, including the heavily sought after rainfall showerhead. In addition, we... More
