I live in SD and wanted to have a staycation so I join my friends who were already staying there. Everything about this lovely resort is top notch except for the food and food service at Avant I am vegan and the wait staff and reservationists said it would be challenging to eat here do to my plant based life style .. I was quite shocked that yes she was right the severs weren’t interested in helping me create a vegan meal and when I settled for Brussel sprouts and French fries I was not impressed . So if you are in fact Vegan bring your own food and request a refrigerator...

Hotel's Favorite
A lot of places call themselves resorts these days, but few deliver on the promise of relaxation and a retreat from nearby surroundings, with special amenities that make the property a destination in itself. The Rancho Bernardo Inn fulfilled these expectations to a "tee!". We spent four lovely nights there for a family wedding, and our only regret was that the scheduled activities of our event kept us too busy to use most of the amenities. That said, it was a beautiful property made more beautiful by staff members who appeared happy and genuinely clad to be there and to help. I am sure the spa and the golf facilities would have exceeded expectations had we the opportunity to use them. Highly recommend,

The property is large with fountains and trees in abundance. They are Covid compliant and the food is amazing. Make sure to make your dining reservations in advance, due to the limited space available.

I wasn't impressed with Rancho Bernardo in the slightest. I'll briefly describe why my personal experience was garbage then also go over why the property itself is lack luster. 1. I had a member of the staff question whether my daughter was actually mine (right in front of her) because we look ethnically different 2. Our reservations for the pool were "lost," no attempts were made to rectify the situation. 3. My bill had mistakes 4. There were cigarette butts on a family members patio (during a pandemic no less) Then the property grounds/patio areas landscaping is unkept. I don't know if that's intentional or do to COVID, either way it's not pleasant. The buildings/rooms are dated and need a renovation, for example the toilets seem like a 5 gallon flush, which was crazy considering California has droughts. I cringed every time I flushed. And the gaps between the slots of the balcony are huge, I (a fully grown adult) could fit right through them and jump out, a kid could so easily fall out. I just don't see the value in this particular place- especially when compared to similar places in southern california which I have visited in the last few months

Rancho Bernardo Inn is such a perfect nearby escape for our family! Once on property, you feel like you are removed from the hustle of normal life. Such a beautiful property to explore. The spa pool is the perfect place to relax for the day, and the Veranda patio offers the ideal spot for families to enjoy a nice dinner al fresco.
