TL;DR: I love to drive. I LOVE IT. So this was a dream of a fun drive for me into Moab on a winding, trip of a road into town. But if you don't want to drive, know that it is 20 minutes on a wild road, next to a river. Simply put, the room rate is slightly too high... More

We stayed for two nights and we had a great family room (2 beds upstairs and large one downstairs) with a river view. We had booked activities through the hotel before arrival but everything was chaotic and some activities were in fact not actually booked so we ended up hanging around rather more than we would have liked and not...

I agree with recent reviews which praised the location and accommodation but were dismayed by the food (quality and price) and that the place doesn't seem to be run by anyone. Stayed in a ground floor river view room with rollaway bed for our 12 year old. Beautiful setting and with a large and fairly private outdoor seating area which... More

We stayed there for three nights in July. We are a family of four. The hotel grounds are really fantastic. You feel you are in a different world. The rooms are spacious and clean. The hotel offers lots of greats activities, like horseback riding or rafting on the Colorado River. The reason why I did not put 5 stars is... More

The accommodations were nice, and the activities were great. Save yourself some money by booking 4x4 and river rafting trips through the numerous businesses in Moab. While staying at the ranch, there are very few options for dining. The ranch has a "fancy" restaurant that is EXTREMELY overpriced. At best, it's a 3 star restaurant that charges 5 star prices....

Dear Colby S, Thank you for being our guest this summer. We're glad you enjoyed the activities and the accommodations. Indeed, we are a little ways outside Moab, up a designated scenic byway, and we understand that does limit guests' dining options. We're actively working to update menus with different options and more variety. We agree that Zax and Pasta... More

I now know why they insist on full payment in advance-- because every customer would check out after the first day! To call this a four star luxury resort, and charge $600-700 /night is over the top. This place should be called "Old McDonalds Farm"-- chickens in the driveway; turkeys and geese outside your room; and horses right across the... More

Beautiful setting, nice rooms, private terrace with rocking chairs. Built on the Colorado river, this place is very attractive. Good points: the location, the rooms, the complementary activities (ping pong, tennis, basketball, pool,...), the horseback riding at sunset with our 7-year-old (big thanks to our great guide Rebecca!), the petting zoo, the night sky which you can enjoy perfectly.

We spent five nights at this expensive resort. It is not in a particularly convenient location for anything, being a 20 odd mile drive from Moab or the nearest national park (though that drive is spectacular). However, it did sound delightful and worth the trouble. Though the location is, indeed, wonderful, the resort itself was not worth the trouble. Our... More

On the banks of the Colorado River, this resort's location is inspiring. Evening bonfires were the perfect conclusion to a long day of exploring this remarkable locale. The accommodations were very average however. "Underwhelming" Management was absent and the resort was being run by 3 college age adults. At the price of a 4 or 5 star resort, one would... More
