We had planned on a 3 night stay at Rancho Pescadero as part of out southern Baja vacation, we only stayed 2.
The hotel does not quite live up to its reviews and press clippings, they do market well. A pleasant enough place to stay but:
1) the hotel did not seem to be to busy yet we had to wait an hour for a dinner table - the area they had arranged for dinner service is quite small and the tables very close together making a private conversation impossible.
2) the pool area can be crowded, yes there is a second 'quiet' pool but in this case quiet means no service. Why there is no service at the 'quiet' pool is just one of those mysteries or maybe cost savings - there is a nice bar area but no one there.
3) Hot water would be nice! On the first day we mentioned that we had no hot water and were told we were in a new building and to let the water run till it heated up - no luck. The second solution was to tell us to play with the faucets.... no luck.
The setting is great, the room spacious and clean, the service level is friendly but could be more professional and the food good but not great.
Rancho Pescadero has built hype and a nice property but needs to spend more time delivering on their promise.
