Upon arrival the staff treated us with the utmost repect. The staff was always asking my boyfriend and I if we needed anything and how were we doing and is there anything we can help you with. We went horseback riding and the guides made us feel very comfortable and made sure we understood everything we needed to know .... More

We stayed from Thursday to Sunday. Doc Alan, his family and staff are superb. If you need or want anything, if they can make it happen, they do. The cabins are exactly what you would expect, a place to change, shower and sleep (if you are going to watch tv, etc. a ranch is not the place for you). Everything... More

Want to get away from it all? No television equates to no outside interference with a peaceful setting. Loved the fact that it is a working ranch with genuine wranglers plus, the owners make you feel like you are a personal guest. Horseback riding, Archery, Shooting Range, Paddle Boats, Fishing, Western Saloon, Dining Room with good grub! Patriotic Rodeo was... More

This is how to get away from it all. The Malibu Ranch is a wonderful, hospitable place to enjoy a simpler time. Beginning with a highly courteous staff (from janitorial level right up to top management), this ranch makes you feel at home. Accommodations are nice, without typical luxury: no TV or clock in the room, but an immaculate, comfortable... More

We did not stay at the hotel but rather stopped by for some pony rides for the kids. Advertised price (online, brochure, etc...) states $10 for pony ride. Upon arrival they informed us that it's $15 per child. We asked how come it says $10 in all advertisement, they said "It's $10, plus a $5 processing fee" "like a tax".... More

Travelled with my 16 year old son and 15 year old daughter. We all loved our stay at the ranch. We were able to get a lot of horse back riding in, For my daughter, it was her first time on a horse and they were expert at putting her at ease. The food was also very good. Excellent service... More

As soon as you enter the scene it brings peace and happiness to your surroundings. The staff is incredible, friendly, attentive and kind. There is so much to do with the family or one on one couple time. The meals that are provided are very tasty, my favorite is the BBQ cook outs they have outside while engaging the beautiful... More

My husband and son went for the weekday package, I got reports every night about how wonderful everything was, especially the food, which continues to get talked about a week after their return. My 12 year old son, who renamed himself sheriff buckshot, loved every minute, horseback riding was his favorite, but was excited with everything they had to offer,... More
