We were attending a conference and did not participate in any of the Dude Ranch type activities that they have to offer -- which is a shame because it all looked so fun. Our casita was beautiful with a high ceiling covered in saguaro ribs, a tall fireplace and tons of space. The bathroom was bigger than some hotel rooms... More

Tanque Verde Ranch Review. I spent a week there between 12th and 19th of September 2016. I have to say. I had a fantastic holiday. The staff are very friendly. The kitchen chef is brilliant they cooked to my dietary requirements. The food they had daily was out of this world. They had bbq cook outs and that was amazing.... More

Quiet, tranquill, beautiful area, grounds, the rooms are just want you would think from a Ranch setting. The food is great, and there is a saloon! You can hike, swim, rest, relax...and take some pretty awesome photos! If you want get-away, it's here! Nestled up against the mountains, and at a dead end road...this is a jewel in the desert!...

We traveled to Tucson from the UK, and have been to Tucson twice before, it's a great place. Previously we went to the White Stallion Ranch and thought Tanque Verde would be a nice change. I ride and have my own horse, so it was great to ride lots of different horses, you rarely get the same horse twice here.... More

Our room was very spacious with living room and so much storage! The room was being cleaned daily and it was well maintained. The staff were really attentive and helpful. There is an outdoor pool as well as an indoor one. There is also a hot tub and fitness center. We also enjoyed the outdoor BBQ dinner by the Cottonwood... More

My favorite. I've been there 6 years ago and also now I'm impressed like I was years ago. People are friendly, Meals are excellent- you don't have to think to be in a luxury hotel.. In a ranch, so you eat a lot of meat. Of course.. Horses, is the best place for learn how to ride.

Although I was here merely for lunch, it is a splendid place for family fun or quiet Honeymoon getaway. Far from the busy traffic of Tucson, this hidden ranch with a history rich with famous people of a bygone era, this ranch is perfect for any Tucson family to go with the kids and enjoy horseback riding, hiking trails, swimming,...

What a gem of a ranch. Loved the buffet lunch and service was friendly and upbeat. Great chef, wow what a find. The grounds are charming and pleasant to walk around. If you plan on eating the buffet, call for reservations.

The front desk person, she is very mean and impolite. we will never come back again if she still in the front desk. During the checking in, she tried to control everything, and tried to make difficult for all the people, and never smiled.
