We spent 3 days and nights at Rancho Las Palmas with our 10 and 11-1/2 year old children and did not leave disappointed. The rooms are spacious, modern and clean, as are the rest of the grounds. The staff was accommodating and polite and the experience was nearly flawless.
The big attraction for children is Splashtopia, a mini water park replete with slides, a faux beach, water guns and a meandering "river." There are several lifeguards on duty, so parents can sit idly by and relax, knowing their children are safe. My only complaint is the chlorine level, which was exceptionally high. My "tweenage" children would have preferred the pools to be deeper, but c'est la vie.
We ate breakfast at the restaurant each day, which was nothing spectacular, though the service was friendly and reliable. The food, though was not special, poorly cooked and overpriced, as well. It really stood in contrast to the quality of the rest of the property. We also ate food poolside once, but found it, too, a disappointment. Fortunately, Rancho Las Palmas sits across from a large, modern mall that offers restaurants, shops and a multiplex, so we availed ourselves of it for lunch and dinner.
I did not get an opportunity to use the Spa, though I did use the Fitness Center, which was certainly adequate for my purposes.
Overall, I recommend Rancho Las Palmas for families who desire a sophisticed, service-oriented getaway.
