We just got back from a 3 night stay at Tanque Verde Ranch in Tucson AZ and I can't wait to go back. I am a family travel blogger and we have stayed at tons of resorts and yet we have never had an experience quite like the one we just had at Tanque Verde. We took our oldest 4... More

I do have to start out by saying that I did not have high personal expectations for my stay at Tanque Verde. I came for my young son, for whom it was a little boy's dream come true to be on a cowboy ranch with horses and tons of kids' activities. I expected to spend a lot of time by... More

The first room we got (#54) had a dying, kicking cockroach in the bathroom, hairs on the pillows and bed tops, and the bathroom floors had not been cleaned at all since the last family had been in there. Just disgusting. The next room they gave us had no air conditioning in July. Remember it's the desert, where it's more... More

We had the best time. They kept us busy if we wanted to be busy. Relaxing if we wanted to relax. My kids statement " best time ever" completely recommend this to anyone who has kids 4 years and up. Never had to worry about snacks, or meals. We had the best time.

Shanna, Thank you so much for visiting us at the ranch! We're so glad you and the kids had a great time! We agree, especially for kids - "best time ever"! We hope you enjoyed the kids riding and kids camp, and that your adults also did some riding or mountain biking or just some relaxing by the pool. We... More

This was the first time to a dude ranch for the three of us (ages 42-54) and it excelled all expectations during our three-night stay. From the reservation (Bea and Emma) to reception (LeighAnn and the front-desk young man) to departure, the staff was accommodating, kind, and efficient. The all-inclusive casita with ranch activities is definitely the way to go.... More

Tanque Verde Ranch could benefit from a refresh of its accommodations at an outstanding property. For example, the bathtub appeared to have been resurfaced then pitted with subsequent use. Also, I long for a suite that offers enough privacy that one can open the blackout drapes and enjoy the view without being exposed to other guests walking by. The setting... More

I went to the ranch to find solace, fun, and to ride. The ranch exceeded my expectations in all areas. Guest Service was fantastic, food was terrific, horse back riding was challenging and fun. The activities were endless to include mountain biking, hiking, riding, spa, country and western dancing and more.

My husband and I spend a week on the ranch as part of our honeymoon. We were impressed from the very beginning when Sarge picked us up from the airport to our beautiful room that was upgraded.

This is our 10 th year returning to the ranch for a family vacation. Our first time in May. This is when they convert to the "summer schedule" due to the heat in Tucson. The horse back rides go out earlier and there are no lope rides in the afternoon. The ranch is less crowded at off peak times. My... More
