Where to begin?! This was my 3d visit to the "Ranch" and it certainly won't be my last. I booked it for a mommy rejuvenation week and I got it and more. This place is hard to really put into words as it is not a straight forward spa, it is so much more. Besides the brilliant selection of classes on the hour with expert and engaging instructors, the meals are exquisite (cooking school and organic garden are heavenly and run by the most enthusiastic and passionate gardener), the treatments are divine and the gardens are truly breathtaking. At every corner, I was intoxicated with the glorious smells coming from each variety of flower. The rooms are beautifully decorated with Mexican art and very clean and comfortable. The staff are genuinely friendly and gracious. The early morning mountain hikes are the best way to start each day. The Ranch is good for the soul, spirit, body and mental state.... I LOVE Rancho La Puerta!
