My husband and I stayed overnight this past Saturday. The property is undergoing a major renovation (much needed), as well as change of name, etc. The resort had become quite tired looking but now is clean, new and quite attractive. We had spent time over several summers at the resort years ago when it was Aliso Creek and are pleased... More

This is a lovely property and a nice addition to the offerings in Laguna. The public beach is an easy walk via a safe tunnel, right across PCH. Make sure to head over for sunset. The staff at the hotel is gracious and so eager to please. The front desk staff needs a bit more training in responding to requests,... More

My Guess would be if you are reading reviews other than recent you are wasting your time. We stayed here during the last week of December. The room was perfect, clean, spacious and comfortable. We have stayed in many 5 star hotels and the service at "The Ranch" was as good if not better than we have ever experienced. We... More

The resort is 2-3 months from being 100% renovated, but this had no effect on our stay, as we just wanted a room in a nice setting--no golf, spa, etc. We stayed in a Canyon Room, the least expensive choice, and it was perfect for the two of us. We cannot comment on the soundproofing, as we had no neighbors... More

The Ranch is a secret spot place to come and relax. The property is in nature beyond beauty, the deer, the canyons and the ocean all within arms distance puts you in a peaceful state of mind. The food is delicious, the drinks, green ones or alcoholic are progressive and organic. A great secret getaway yet a trolley ride to... More

What a beautiful setting. We felt like we were in our own personal retreat. We loved our room and all the fabulous activities. We golfed with our kids and took the shuttle to a beautiful beach across the street! The food was excellent and the staff was very attentive.

2016 is off to a relaxing start - thanks to a New Year's stay at the Ranch at Laguna Beach!

We stayed during the construction phase which had discounted room nights and the restaurant/spa still under construction. The construction had relatively little impact on our stay. You can not hear anything and they block it off very well. The location is ideal in Laguna, walking distance from the montage. Service is very good, the staff is really working hard to... More
