Really great property, stunningly beautiful. Went above and beyond with anything we wanted. THe family package was awesome, they set up a tent in our back patio for our young son and making so'mores around the fire pit is something he won't forget. THe family pool was the only pool we used, the adult pool was closed for a private... More

Our family went to Rancho Bernardo Inn for a weekend stay and had a fabulous time. There is so much for a family to do that we never left the property. The food at all of the restaurants was delicious.

I used their room/spa package as an excuse to come here for a weekend "staycation." I couldn't be more impressed. The grounds are beautiful and serene, the Veranda restaurant had a great menu and ambiance and the spa area was the icing on the cake. After a wonderful massage in an outdoor casita, I enjoyed the spa-guest-exclusive saline pool and... More

We needed a break from our routine and started looking for a place less than two hours away that would have some sun. Turns out we found a great spot. RBI I has been tucked away east of San Diego forever, but doesn't feel old, it is in great condition with comfortable updated rooms with flat screen tv, Kuerig coffee... More

Quick trip to San Diego for a wedding. Upon arrival we were greeted by very professional, friendly and attentive staff. Check-in went well and our request for an early check-in was granted and we could not have been happier. Room was nice but had no wow factor. Bathrooms clean but outdated. No stone just tile. Very inexpensive tissue and toilet... More

I stayed at this resort for a conference, but my family joined me. It has lovely grounds, however the campus is very spread out with multiple levels...not conducive to anyone with physical limitations or mobility issues. However a friend who has these issues was accommodated with a golf cart transport to the places he needed to be in attendance. All... More

I recently attended a business conference for 6 nights at the Inn. Although the hotel is charming and the grounds very pretty it is best reserved for the non-seasoned traveller. The lack of staff and the inattention to detail is quite noticeable. Upon check in we tried to switch our rooms after finding out our room had a patio and... More

Overall - average to below average. VERY expensive. A couples 50 minute massage plus lunch at the pool is $400. Parking is absolutely abysmal unless you drive a Smart car. Massage is great, very professional and thorough. Pool waiters are understaffed and unhelpful. Waited 30 minutes AT the bar for a can of beer, while they pissed and moaned about... More

Barney, thank you taking the time to review your visit to the Rancho Bernardo Inn. We’re glad to hear you enjoyed the grounds and your treatment, but disappointed that the service you received at the pool was anything but excellent. I have brought your feedback to the attention of our pool staff, and necessary changes will be made. Thank you. More
