My husband and I just returned from four days at Tanque Verde Ranch with our two daughters, ages 9 and 11. We visited over MLK weekend, when the ranch was operating at somewhere over half capacity, and for a couple of days afterwards (when it was nearly empty). Overall, we had a wonderful time, but our experience definitely varied based... More

What a fantastic experience and my favourite time, on out trip driving from Las Vegas to San Francisco. Fabulous room (apart from the hard pillows), great food and friendly staff. Loved the horses especially Lance. Don't expect to pass the Lope test first time mind because you wont, don't care if you have ridden the Grand National ;) Strange though,... More

Tanque Verde is the perfect mix of just enough roughing it, camping/dude ranch feel to go along with it's upscale facilities and amazing food!! Went with the family for 3 days at the ranch and we had the best time!! We met so many great people and did so many activities that we normally don't get the chance to do.... More

I had an amazing time at Tanque Verde Guest Ranch. I went to spend a week riding horses in the beautiful Sonoran desert and got exactly that. The food is pretty good- buffet for lunch and plated for dinner. The rooms are a bit older- but you really shouldnt be spending much time there anyways. If you are there to... More

The first thing that occurs when you pull into the ranch is a run down reception area. You step out of the car and immediately the reek of cow and horse manure take up the Ranch air. The reception area to check in also has bug catchers that makes a very loud sound. The beds are made for kids ages... More

This is the fourth guest ranch I have visited and I have never not loved my experience. This is more of a resort with horses than a guest ranch. It is corded and you get a different horse every day which makes no sense and doesn't allow you to grow your skills with one horse. I have been riding for... More

My daughter and I just finished four fun days. It is all about riding but there are other things to do. The food was very good and varied. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable but a bit dark. We really could have used a couple more lamps. The fitness center is small and the equipment... More

All the ranch staff from the management to the wranglers and front desk staff were wonderful. Welcoming and kind, the horse riding was excellent, the riding lessons very very good, the location is...

So, a rating of 5 is unusual for me. It's only when a hotel does exactly what it claims to do, very well, that 5 should be given. This it does. TVR is an amazing blend of wilderness dude ranch and urbane pleasures. The quality of the rooms varies with the price, certainly, but you get something special regardless of... More
