Amidst rolling hills in Southern California, just north of San Diego, the Rancho Valencia resort receives well-deserved high ratings. We had a casita with a bathroom the size of most hotel rooms - complete with large steam shower. The casita had a walled yard complete with outdoor Jacuzzi just steps from the bedroom door. Oh, and did I mention the... More

We went to the Day Spa and spent the day feeling relaxed and pampered. They have the most beautiful yoga room I have ever seen and we took a soft roller yoga class. Next I swam laps in a lovely pool with every comfort at my fingertips. I then had a lymphatic drainage massage and had very deep relaxation and... More

Visiting Ranch Valencia for a long weekend, while on a west coast trip. Found the property through Trip Advisor/T+L/Conde Nast. Absolutely amazing stay. Staying in an Olive Grove 1Br Ste #135. The room is impeccable and centrally located yet very private. The attention to detail on finishes is absolutely amazing. Large. Refined design. Amazing touches. Phenomenal. While the property is...

My wife, baby daughter are regrettably leaving after a week long stay at RV. This is a very, very special place and we will be back. There are so many wonderful things to say about the resort. The tennis centre is incredible, I played with a former Top 50 player every day, thank you for your patience and kindness Todd... More

We did the economical thing for most of our trip to the states but we were looking for a couple of nights luxury on the way in to San Diego from la. RV is by no means cheap but it's definitely worth it. We stayed in an Agave suite with our six year old. The rooms are enormous and with... More

I have stayed at Rancho Valencia many times and it never disappoints. It's my favorite stay-cation from the Los Angeles area. As soon as you pull inside the gates you'll leave the rest of the world behind. Located a few miles from the beach they seem to have non-stop sunshine where sometimes the beach would be fogged in. I love... More

Our family of five just spent 4 nights at Rancho Valencia. I cannot say enough about the service, the staff, the tennis and the resort itself. Every little detail from the fresh orange juice delivered to your room to the kid's menu has been carefully thought out so that whether you are traveling with young children or with no children...

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Rancho Valencia, and we could not have had a better experience. We received a beautiful upgraded villa with a Jacuzzi on the private patio. The bath furnishings were incredible from the Toto toilet to the steam shower. The fresh squeezed OJ delivered to the villa each morning tasted as if the oranges... More
