Perfect stay for visting the observatory or san pedro martir national park. I had previously stayed at the park's cabins. But you have to carry everything including gas for hot meals and bed sheets. Rancho meling has hot water with good pressure and a tinder heater for cold nights. Very recomendable.

We arrived on dirt bike with no reservation and the ranch was booked up! Thankfully, with Christian's inquiry on our behalf, a family that was renting the 4-bedroom house said it was ok for us to stay in one of the rooms they weren't using. Everyone we met here was wonderful. The family-style dinner and breakfast encourages meeting strangers, swapping... More

We had a great two day stay at Meling. The ranch is comfortable. It is rustic, but the place is very clean and the staff is excellent. We rode our mottos right out the door to the many tracks in the area. Highly recommended for an off the beaten path adventure.

The environment is great, it is nice to stop half way between the M1 and the national park. The rooms are very clean. The food is good. But : - no fridge in the room - part time electricity - you must pay for every thing - English not spoken except a bit by one guy - only informations about... More

We were riding roughly 300 miles along the Baja coast and stopped here one evening. We arrived just before sunset and the mountains were gorgeous with the moon rising on the other side! We rented the big cabin to accommodate all the riders. We hit the pool for a few minutes before the dinner bell rang... the ladies at Melings... More

We arrived without reservation and were happy to find that they could accommodate us. In fact, we were the only ones there other than family members that arrived from CA the next day. Being that we visited in late December, it was cold, but they have a wood stove in the room and a box of wood for each room... More

I stayed two nights here in September, as part of a visit to San Pedro Martir National Park and the observatory. Meling is an authentic Western ranch with comfortable rooms, good basic meals, a nice swimming pool, and _absolute quiet_ at night. I'd come back for the last reason alone. US$60/night is expensive (plus $6 breakfast and $11 dinner), but... More
