I originally went to the ranch with a group. It was fun because of the people I was with and the freedom I saw the children have. As for the ranch as usual it was fraught with problems. I came back to the ranch at the insistence of a manager who gave me a credit. Upon my booking the trip I was shocked that my one night stay(two kids, two adults) was almost $900.00!! That would have been fine if I didn't feel like I was at a run down motel. There a a few things to do at the ranch but all very small scaled(great for a 7 year old) and often not working. There is very little to do for an adult and if its crowded you may not even find a seat. I traveled to Jamaica for 3 nights, had a nanny, ate on fresh food and alcohol was included. All this for 1200.00 including airfare. If you are with a group you won't notice but spend your money wisely if not. The staff is great but the management is riding an reputation which is not reality.
