We had a huge room and a lovely patio with great views over the national park. The staff were friendly and informative. The saloon bar was great for a beer or cocktail and the restaurant served great food. You can sit at your own table or join the communal table which was a great way to meet new people and... More

What can I say..... Tanque Verde Ranch offers a fabulous experience. The rooms/casitas are great. A good size, private, good tolietries, a nice sized fridge.... really comfortable and cosy. All the staff I met were super friendly, genuine and passionate about life at the ranch. One of the staff showed us how to make Smores at the Cowboy Cookout. The... More

We went for the location, rather than the activities. We loved our beautiful room, and my brother's room was one of the large, more modern ones up the hill, where they had spectacular views of a thunderstorm miles away. Staff was attentive and helpful. We were aware of other guest families but our room was quiet. Took ourselves on a... More

Staff was warm and helpful. Rooms were spacious and clean. Grounds were well kept. But let's face it, we weren't there for the facilities, we were there for the activities which were thoughtful, well-managed affairs. Here are the things we loved about Tanque Verde Ranch: Breakfast Ride - My niece and I drove up from Phoenix for a weekend away.... More

Having stayed and been delighted at another ranch in Tucson a couple of years ago, I was very much looking forward to my stay at Tanque Verde Ranch, but I came away disappointed. Let's begin with the room: although spacious and comfortable enough, the bathroom is not what's expected at any facility, yet alone one charging what TVR charges. Have... More

I have been to the ranch twice and will be going again next February. Every time i go, i always get outstanding service and i normally am there during winter break in February. Accidents happen, you're around horses, you have to know that you're taking a risk riding. I was on a loping ride and the horse that my friend... More

My husband and I just returned from Tanque Verde Ranch last weekend with our 2 children and had a fabulous time. The kids had so much fun in the kids club that they didn't want to come back with us. The kids club is not a daycare center---the kids ware able to horseback ride all morning, fish, swim, etc. The... More

I only had a brief 1 night visit but will defiantly go back for more. The room was clean and pleasant the breakfast was great. The pool looked great, the views over the Sonoran desert were breath taking. The Doghouse Saloon had a great atmosphere and great Cocktails.

This place was very enjoyable. Ok it's not 5 star but once you get into the theme it just flows very well The accommodation we stayed in was large but could really do with a face lift especially the bathroom, which is very tired and old and spoils a nice room The only other criticism would be the eating times,...

My husband and I visited April 4th - 8th, 2014 with another couple. This was our first visit to Tanque and/or to any dude ranch. We stayed in Salas #58 with 2 Queens. After a very long trip from Birmingham, AL to Tuscon, AZ and then the 45 minute drive from airport to the ranch, upon arrival, we were starving... More
