Our visit to the Tanque Verde Ranch was memorable in the most wonderful way. great smiles at reception upon arrival with a good run down given of the Ranch facilities and activities. We were able to ride every day and both my limited abilities and my Wife's more expert skills were catered for. We found that safety in the Corral (where we mounted up) and particularly on the rides was of paramount importance with regular stops by very friendly (and my Wife tells me good looking) wranglers to check saddles and rider's comfort.
The food was excellent with great American breakfasts with all the trimmings. A bountiful buffet lunch consisting of all different types of salad as well as a number of hot dishes. Dinner catered for meat, fish and veggie lovers including one of the best prime ribs of beef we have ever had. We also had both cook out breakfasts on the range cooked by the very friendly ranch owner who speciality is home made blueberry pancakes as well as BBQ dinners complete with a guitar player.
The rooms are huge and we opted to pay a little more for a suite complete with a huge jacuzzi bath, seperate spacious shower room and a majestic view for miles over the cactus and the range.
I was also able to play tennis nearly every day with the ranch pro at no extra charge and join in tennis mixers with other guests arranged by the really charming and expert pro.
We have already booked our next visit.
