My husband and I stayed at the ranch for 3 days in January and didn't really know what to expect as we'd never stayed anywhere like this before. We were surprised initially with how large it was as it didn't seem so from the website, but having said that it still had an lovely feeling, especially as the staff were... More

We stayed here one night on their bed-and-breakfast plan as we were in Arizona for the Alabama-Clemson national title college football game in Phoenix. The ranch is par excellence, with professional courteous staff, plenty of ranch-related activities for adults and kids and one of the most picturesque locations in the United States. With bed-and-breakfast, we picked horseback riding and a... More

Wonderful experience in the desert of Arizona. The hotel has a typical structure of a ranch but provides a luxury experience. They offer horse and bike rides to explore the region. Nice pool and large room. Very good service. Variety of the food.

we spent one night at the Tanque Verde resort. the property was pretty and our room was nice but we did not enjoy the dining room. Although there was no one in the restaurant when we went for dinner, we were seated at a table on the path between the bathroom and the kitchen. When we complained, the waitress refused... More

Just returning from a three night long weekend at the ranch. Just enough time to enjoy all the ranch has to offer. It starts with the setting at the dead end of the road that runs through Tucson. Surrounded by cactus filled desert and mountain. Wild and peaceful. The ranch itself is upscale comfortable. Not luxurious, but how a ranch... More

We were excited to visit here. I was looking forward to spend some time out of the city in the desert and close to nature. The room was VERY outdated, nothing like the pictures on the website. The bathtub was FILTHY, full of chips and cracks amd the shower head was so calcified and limed up that only one large... More

Thank you for your comments - we did have a contractor refinish all the tubs on the property and for some reason some of the finish product failed. All of them are in the process of being redone by another contract team with great results. More

I thought the ranch had a lot of greatness. The staff were particularly impressive in their dedication to their jobs all around. I thought they were wonderful. I was there Christmas vacation with a 6 & 8 year-old and since it was the school break, there were tons of kids which really made the kids activities appealing to my children... More

We had NO idea what to expect at Tanque Verde, so I only booked three nights for our family of four (11yo/9yo). We were so pleasantly surprised by just about everything. We stayed in room 15, which was beautiful and spacious (1 king bedroom, 2 murphy beds for the kids), and though I've read a few housekeeping complaints here, our... More

Clean Southwestern rooms with a great view, the food is good considering the number of people they are cooking for. Smaller guest ranches will have better food. The mountain biking was excellent with great guides who really knew how to ride. The hiking was very good and guides had good information on the plants and animals in the desert. The... More
