We just spent a week enjoying the breathtaking beauty of the desert, while kicking back in the luxury of the Tanque Verde Ranch. The food was fabulous, the service was amazing, and the wranglers were able to teach us tenderfoots how to actually ride a horse! Everyone couldn't have been nicer, which made the time there even more perfect. We... More

We have just spent 4 nights at tanque verde and cannot praise the place enough. It is located on the edge on the saguaro desert so location is out of this world. We stayed in room 44 which has just been renovated to an extremely high standard. 2 large queen beds with beautiful fireplace and leather chairs in one corner,... More

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.

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

Tanque Verde Ranch Resort was named "Best Dude Ranch in Arizona" by Dude Republic in 2012, as well as a "Top Ten Family Resort" by the Travel Channel since 2007, and a "Top Five Ranch" by Conde Nast in 2008. Tanque Verde Ranch is one of America’s old time cattle and guest ranches. Located on 60,000 acres of Tucson’s most breathtaking desert landscapes, nestled amongst the Rincon Mountains and adjacent to Saguaro National Park and Coronado National Forest.

La Sonora Spa is the perfect place for a bit of quiet relaxation, and the kids will love all the supervised children's programs!
