3rd visit and that says a lot in itself - hard not to simply repeat the praise so let me highlight what makes this a great summer holiday: - it's about people - whether it be the new connections made between your own group based on new experiences; the delight your kids have meeting up with similar age kids from...

Thank you for the very nice review you just posted on Tripadvisor! We appreciate your kind words, and the fact that you have come back to the ranch many times! This year was quite fun to see the "kids" enjoy the ranch in a new way as they have grown up so much since your first visit years ago. Thanks... More

I'll keep it short as the reviews are spot on regarding how amazing the ranch is - fantastic staff, great accommodations, 5 star food, kids program to die, beautiful location etc. One note not in other reviews - the horses are in excellent condition - glossy coats, good weight, no saddle sores. I own a horse and ride daily -... More

This was my dream holiday, I learned to ride horses as a child and haven't had much time in the saddle since. We are a family of 4, with 2 boys aged 9 and 12. This has turned out to be the best holiday ALL of us have ever had. Everything is luxurious and each guest's needs are met, as... More

We have been back from VVR for a week now and cannot stop talking about how wonderful it was. We went our two kids and our niece (ages 7, 11 and 12). This was our first visit to the ranch. We all thoroughly enjoyed the entire week. Prior reviews addressed the scenery, horses, food, activities and accomodations, so I won't... More

I have written a review each year after our visit. We have now been back to VVR 3 years in a row and already booked for 2017 (and we've never booked the same vacation twice before now). In addition to that we have finally booked a winter trip and are very excited about staying 10 nights over Christmas. If you... More

I arrived at the Ranch in shock following a tragic event involving my 19 year old daughter. She survived, thank God, but it has taken me this long to be able to talk about that season.

All one has to do is read the reviews of Vista Verde to get a sense of what a wonderful experience this destination provides.
