“Single Mom Sabbatical”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2012

Sunglow Ranch was the perfect place to escape for a quiet, solo trip. Meals (more about the meals at the end) were served in a comfortable, cozy communal dining room, where I was able to chat pleasantly with Brooks, the manager, and the other guests, but I was free to enjoy solitude on a solo hike around the property, in the hot tub where I could gaze at the mountains and breathe in the serenity, without feeling like I was out in the wild by myself. The perfect mixture of solitude and safety. I always felt welcome to join in with the other guests, but I never felt pressured to leave my much needed quiet respite. Miles away from a big city, but with all of the luxuries of a resort, with lovely little details everywhere you look. (I loved the soaps and lotions!) Because Sunglow Ranch is nestled between the mountains and the desert, it was exquisitely quiet and refreshing. The stars were absolutely breathtaking! The views were outstanding, and the sightseeing in the area was wonderful. A short drive to Tombstone for the afternoon was a refreshing complement to my time of rest. At dusk, all of the beautiful little path lights are on, and it just looks like a little gem, really. But the most amazing thing was the food. Even though they don't offer a complimentary lunch, the food was so incredible, and so amply portioned, that I don't know how I could even have eaten lunch! The servers were friendly, and the table settings were lovely, but the food...it was as if you could taste the care and effort put into its preparation. The eggs were perfect (I don't usually like scrambled eggs) and the gluten free selections were outstanding. The combination of flavors that were put together was what I imagine a painting by Monet would taste like were it food, yet even more substantial and down to earth. Adventurous enough for gourmet, yet familiar enough for comfort. If I lived close by, I might visit again, if only for the amazing breakfast and dinner! I highly recommend this place for people who like the idea of camping out in the middle of the desert or mountains, but want the safety and comfort of a low key, yet understatedly luxurious resort.

Room Tip: Some rooms face the mountains, and some rooms have fireplaces. Since I knew it was going to be rela...

We have just returned from a four week trip to Arizona over Christmas and New Year and one of the highlights of our trip was a four night stay at Sunglow Ranch. The ranch is in a beautiful location surrounded by mountains and woodland. There is a lake with resident geese and deer regularly come to drink. The trip to the ranch involves a four mile drive down a dirt road and there is a real feeling of getting away from it all. The place is very well run by Brooks, his wife Susan and a dedicated team of people who go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Accommodation is in smallish casitas and we had a lovely view of the mountains from our windows. The casitas have a small patio area and our room, The Acorn, was sheltered from the Arizona sun by a huge oak tree. The ranch has a cafe/restaurant that provides an excellent breakfast and a three course dinner as part of the package and lunch is available (packed or otherwise) if you require it. A tea and coffee trolley makes sure drinks are available all day and there are bottles of water in a bath of ice. There is a marked trail on the site and a very attractive pool area for relaxing. A well equipped fitness centre is attached to the pool area and Brooks can arrange other activities such as horseriding if required. We had a great time at Sunglow and would love to return

Room Tip: Make sure you get a casita with a view of the mountains, not all have this. Also storage is limited...

We stayed here for three nights in late October. The highlight is the setting-it sits in an oasis with more greenery than anywhere in the area. The views from your porch or poolside are lovely. The food is excellent and the staff is very helpful and friendly. There were only a few other people that week and people mixed a lot. There was a wonderful wine tasting dinner the night we arrived and in fact the wines at the winery next door were excellent even though it is their first vintage. We went to Chiricahua twice for hiking and loved it-this is the best place in the area for sure. What I didn't like: we were told that the pool would be solar heated to 85 degrees when in fact it was 64 degrees and so useless. The jacuzzi is nice though. Also at checkout I was hit by a previously unmentioned ten percent resort fee which I refused to pay and left a bad taste. The nature trail is too natural and needs to be maintained better as there are hundreds of grasshoppers and we got covered in burrs. Luckily no ticks. The rooms inside were somewhat dark and had murals that seemed tacky to us. So we were very pleased overall and with a few changes it would be perfect.

Room Tip: the burro room had a nice view off the porch but was dark

SunglowManagement, General Manager at Sunglow Ranch - Arizona Guest Ranch and Resort, responded to this review, November 23, 2011
Dear Guest,
It was a pleasure to have you with us! Thank you for your kind review and for taking the time to write. Your insights are invaluable in assisting other potential guests to prepare for their visit to Sunglow. We continue to solicit and welcome honest guest feedback and we appreciate your helping us to create an even more special Sunglow Ranch.

The Ranch fee as described on our website, is set up to provide a suggested gratuity level that may be modified at the discretion of the guest. While gratuities are appropriate and welcomed by our talented staff, they should always be based on the level of service received. We must leave this completely to a guest's discretion however as standards of graciousness and hospitality dictate that we support both the guest's prerogative to supplement additional well-deserved gratuities, or to opt out of paying gratuities altogether.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Brooks Bradbury
General Manager

Wonderful quiet secluded place to hold a retreat. The rooms, food, staff and surroundings are superior to most places I hold my retreats. I highly recommend the facility.

My sisters and I needed to visit Chiricahua National Monument to see our family homestead, Faraway Ranch. Sunglow was the closest guest ranch and Brooks was especially helpful with our bookings and special needs. Our rooms were wonderful, the food fantastic, and the staff created a relaxing atmosphere where all our needs were met. We spent two days hiking in Chiricahua, followed by a great soak in the spectacular spa. You can bring your own beverages to enjoy in your room and patio area. The grounds were clean, neat and beautiful. We enjoyed the bocce court. The highlight of our stay at Sunglow was meeting Bucky the Rangler for a horseback ride. Because we were experienced riders he took us to some special places. LOVE!

Room Tip: Tell Brooks what you need and he will help you choose.

We had originally planned to go to Cancun for my Hubby's 50th bday, but a hurricane showed up so we had to make other plans quickly. We are Arizona residents, and wanted something close, so we starting searching. We hadn't heard of Pearce, much less Sunglow, but after reviewing the website and other tripadvisor reviews, we booked a 3 night stay. On the drive we thought ' uh oh. This looks pretty rustic', but once we arrived on the property, all our concerns disappeared. The staff were all very attentive without being overbearing, and the property had so much beauty and charm. Lots of outdoor living areas with comfy couches, chairs, rockers to just enjoy the property. The food was very good, and my 210 lb personal trainer husband never went hungry...not a small feat. Although we did venture off the property to go hiking and to visit Bisbee, we both agreed that we absolutely will stay on property next time and enjoy the fishing, canoe, mountain bikes, on-site hiking, pool, and the simple beauty. Very relaxing but not boring. If you are looking for clubs and nitelife, this isn't your place. If you are looking for a beautiful place to enjoy whomever you are with, want good food and amazing service with attention to detail, book a stay at Sunglow.

Room Tip: We had a two room casita because we wanted a fireplace. If we were just going to be there one night...
