Rancho Valencia is a wonderful spot to get away. You feel like you're even more remote than you are. The spa facilities are beautiful with superior service providers. The workout facilities and classes are top notch. The service is truly exceptional in all areas. The restaurants have excellent farm to table cuisine. If you are coming on a holiday weekend... More

Beautiful. Refined but still casual. Extremely well maintained. Gorgeous spa and great work out facility. Great food. Hope to return some time soon. Not particularly close to other interesting attractions, but I did not want to leave anyway.

Just returned home from 3 glorious days at Rancho Valencia to celebrate a milestone bday with the girls. The resort itself was immaculate, the food superb and the service exceptional. Loved the spa and fitness facilities - lots of classes to choose from so there was something for everyone. I would definitely return.

Rancho Valencia is a few miles east of Del Mar in a rural horse country and it is like getting away form the city. Very country and with a feeling of getting away. The rooms are set apart so you do not have a hotel feel. You go through a gate and they send your arrival to reception so they... More

Rancho Valencia understands well the value of exceptional service. When you combine this with an incredible property and spectacular rooms, you have a luxury resort that is well worth the price of admission. We selected RV based on their ranking on Tennis Resorts Online (and of course the rave reviews on TripAdvisor), as a couple that loves tennis vacation destinations.... More

Our suite was very nice and housekeeping did a great job keeping it clean. Everyone was very friendly and the grounds very well kept. I loved the yoga classes! Polo bar had great drinks and good food. Only stayed three nights and the weather was nice and sunny each day☀️

Wonderful resort experience, with everything we needed for our 14-person group of tennis players. They run great tennis clinics and round robins, and the pros are terrific. The food is wonderful, the rooms are both spacious and spectacular, and the whole experience was awesome. Highly recommended.

Arrived at the hotel and check in was a breeze. I stayed in the Olive Grove rooms. The room was beautiful. Very large with a gas fireplace and a huge terrace that was completely private. The bathroom was enormous and the steam shower great. The restaurant was very good with a large selection of food. Room service was also prompt.... More

I have had the pleasure of staying at RV twice now for a tennis/girls weekend in 2015 and 2016. I couldn't be more pleased with the facility, the rooms, the food and the service. This is a place that you can do nothing ....or everything while staying! I love the Relais and Chateau affiliation....... you know everything is going to... More

This resort is amazing! Came here for a ladies tennis trip for the second year in a row and can't wait to come back. The rooms are huge and luxurious, with your own fireplace and sitting area, private patio, luxurious beds, and great amenities like free inroom beverages/snacks, upscale toiletries, robe & slippers, lit fire when you come back at...
