I've stayed at Ranch Valencia four times (once prior to the renovation and three since) and it's as good as it gets. Twice I've stayed with my husband for long get-away weekends and twice on my own while visiting friends in the area. The check-in is in a room on its own, so you're not left standing waiting in line... More

What a place. Loved every bit. From arrival to check-in to going into your room for the first time you know this is going to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It doesn't fail to exceed expectations. Superb accommodation - from the living space to the outside terrace, from the sumptuous bed to the vast bathroom - everything is there, right down... More

Once we pulled onto their property we knew this was a wonderful resort. The Villa's are spacious, ultra comfortable and someone there pays attention to details. The resort gives you a feeling of relaxation, the ability to be pampered and stepping out of life's stresses. Beautiful accents and architecture, the landscaping is gorgeous and breathes peacefulness all around. Exquisite service... More

We just got back from our second trip to Rancho Valencia. My husband allowed me to choose any place I wanted to celebrate my birthday. This place does not disappoint! Service is the best in the industry. They go out of their way to get you an umbrella on a cloudy day to researching the lotion used in the yoga... More

The location is 30 mins from San Diego Airport, in a lovely quiet location. This is a resort not a hotel. The staff are amazing, the service is five star BUT the staff are relaxed and so friendly, there is no pretension at all that can come with some five star properties. The catering is excellent and they strive to... More

Really top-notch hotels are hard to find, especially those that aren't too pretentious. I was hugely impressed by Rancho Valencia - comfortable, cosy, incredibly well-appointed rooms (mine even had its own spa outside) that aren't too fussy, but of a very high standard. As was the food and the service - not too fussy, but cool and attentive. I'll definitely... More

Wow! I wish we could have stayed longer. The room was spacious and well appointed. The decor is rustic but lovely and very, very comfortable. All to the staff were welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. The food in the restaurants was good enough to cause one to need another trip to the fitness center and spa. The late night bar scene...

A family dinner at the restaurant around Christmas reflected a decline in the usual high standards of the resort restaurant.....lukewarm food, service levels under stress, errors in the check and an invisible maître`d. Must and can do better.
