I have been going to Tanque Verde Ranch for over 20 years. It has only improved over time.
First and foremost the service is unbeleivable. Whatever you ask for the staff try to accomodate.
When I started going I was single and would go to ride. Later, I conviced my law partners to do a firm retreat there. It was the best retreat we ever had. This year I took my 8 year old twins.
I was delighted to find that there is now a fantastic kids program. My kids typically don't like kids' programs and on the first day they announced they would not be participating in it. By lunch time they were asking to have lunch in the kids only dining room and by day 2 they were doing riding lessons, trail rides, tennis etc. in the kids program. The staff were fantastic.
The rooms are very nice, the food is great and the activities are really fun. Although I didn't try it this time, I saw team penning which is basically a bunch of adults on horses in a corral trying to get a bunch of cows into a pen. What a hoot! City Slickers all the way.
My son also got a private mountain biking lesson (his first time) and said it was the hightlight of his life.
I can't say enough about this wonderful place. I highly recommend this ranch for singles, couples, families and corporate groups.
Most people are repeat guests. Some have gone every year for up to 30 years. There were a lot of large family reunion or anniversary type trips.
It is a very relaxed, fun ranch in the middle of the beautiful Arizona dessert.
