Enjoyed two nights at Rancho Valencia in a Valencia suite with outdoor fireplace and spa as a special birthday getaway. The place is recently renovated providing all the necessary comforts. The resort graciously granted all our requests and were attentive to details to make my husband's birthday special, starting from arrival at the gate to reception, and pool and spa... More

Very interesting restaurant. You can eat outside around a fireplace. The food is very good and with several variations from meat to fish and with some mexican options. Interesting are the appetizer options. The place is defenetly elegant but it welcomes some more cadual looks.

I questioned if the cost would be worth it before booking the vacation. After the first day if a four night stay celebrating our 20th anniversary I knew it was DEFINITELY worth the cost. Breakfast in bed made the wife happy. Gym and spa access made me happy. This was exactly the type of vacation we wanted. Didn't start the... More

We spent two nights at Rancho Valencia after a business meeting in San Diego. Everything was wonderful. Our suite was spacious and comfortable. We had lunch at the resort on our first afternoon on a beautiful terrace with a lovely view. The next night we had dinner at their gourmet restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed it. We will definitely go back... More

Recently a group of us went to the Pony Room at Rancho La Valencia. We sat on the deck and enjoyed the bucolic, beautiful setting. Our light meds were terrific. our waitress couldn't have been better. The setting is peaceful and elegant!

To cut a long story short, this is about as good as it gets when it comes to US hotels. The hotel is located inland to the North of the San Diego area, with plenty of greenery and beautiful grounds. Rooms are effectively individual bungalows in four different categories - the lower two have a "junior suite" type structure with... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, I was expecting a lot and for the most part wasn't disappointed although a few things I think RV should improve on given how they position themselves as one of the best hotels in the world. Rooms are like villas, parking spot out front of each, large bathroom with separate soaking tub, large shower,... More

My husband and I enjoyed five wonderful days at Rancho Valencia. We played tennis daily. No other resort offers a tennis concierge as good as RV. Marie will find friendly players at your skill level for social games, and clinics are top notch. The food at the resort was so good we canceled dinner plans elsewhere to stay on site... More

Lush landscaped grounds, bungalow room layout, first class tennis, and terrific dining options. The rooms are large and well appointed - steam shower, toto nearest toilets, Waterworks. The beds are comfortable, private patios - some with hot tubs and views. Service is always friendly and helpful. Two pools, one for kids and one serene adult pool. A great gym with... More
