if you want to impress someone special, I highly recommend this place. All of the staff are very attentive. Gas fireplaces, hot tub on the deck, out door shower and the most delicious in-room dining experience I have ever had. Expensive but mid-week special makes it even better. One should splurge and enjoy this experience.

This hotel is pure magic. From having your name on the cottage to the staff to the food, this is one magnificent property. We stayed two nights and loved every second. We hike the trail going to the waterfall, we experienced in cottage dining and we went to the restaurants on property. As an example of attention to detail, you... More

Amazing hotel with great food and wine on a beautiful landscape. Very unique. The problem was when I check out I forgot my Ipad charging in the bedroom. Half way to LAX I realized that I forgot the Ipad charging, I called the hotel for them to keep it for me, as I was going to Tahiti, but I would... More

Dear Lorenzo, We conducted an exhaustive search on this reported incident in July 2013 and determined the item had not been seen or handled. We do provide an in-cottage safe for any item that a guest may wish to place there, and for this incident were able to facilitate an early departure for both cottages with no penalty of early...

This was our 3rd time at the Ranch and it has never disappointed. Lovely cottage, beautiful amenities, friendly staff. I particularly enjoyed the complimentary wine and cheese in the reception area. Unfortunately, it's only served on Fridays between 3-5pm.

I took my husband to San Ysidro Ranch for his 50th birthday and the weekend was perfect. Our cottage had a fabulous view, cozy fireplace, and great outdoor jacuzzi. The resort is a great balance of high end service yet relaxed atmosphere. We have traveled the world and stayed at some exquisite hotels, but my husband and I both feel... More

San Ysidro Ranch is a wonderful place to stay. We had a one bedroom suite that was tastefully finished. The relaxed, sometimes whimsical approach to the design works really well. The private deck with hot-tub and outdoor shower was a great addition and we had a fantastic ocean view with another deck to sit on and watch sunset. Beyond the... More

From the moment we pulled up we knew this was the right choice. All staff are very welcoming. Buildings are a little old but in wonderful shape and charming. Rooms are very clean. Staff definitely went above and beyond. Great job to the staff.-Steve F.
