Mega friendly staff who are very obliging. Stacks of activities to keep you occupied and all the scenary you could ever wish for. Our accommodation was very nice, cracking view with good Internet-laundry-hot tub etc. I would recommend this place to anyone.

We stayed at the Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort for 3 nights in August, 2013. I felt the prices for cabins were too high for what you get. The Cowboy Cabins are comfortable but not worth the $190 per night price tag. Rooms could use a safe. Restaurant staff were very overwhelmed and were turning people away with lots of empty... More

Our Cabin Suites are independent cabins with a bedroom, bathroom, and kitchenette. We do appreciate the opportunity to address any valid concerns as we will do everything in our power to satisfy...

We stayed 4 nights. We had one of the houses associated with the resort, but down the road. While the house was beautiful, and nicely appointed, the location made using the resort difficult, and thus most of the stuff they offered there (pool, game room, climbing wall...) was wasted on us. It is a 30 to 40 minute drive to... More

The resort is in a great location. We took a trail over to Observation Point - about 3 miles of a trek, which was brilliant. Great amenities, friendly folk especially our waitress Keala. We stayed in a cowboy lodge, rustic and quirky. Two night stay was too short. Would like to return for longer.

We stayed 2 nights in the western wagons at Zion ponderosa ranch. We were worried about the heat during the daytime with it being in the upper 90' s but at night it cooled down for nice sleeping weather. We also worried about only having one small window with no screen but there were no bugs. The only thing that... More
