My family and I are preparing for our fourth visit to Brasada Ranch. We all love it. It is peaceful, beautiful and fun. The food is generally excellent, the cabins are very well equipped, clean, and spacious. The kids love roaming around the property, hanging out in the kids center and spending countless hours in the pool. The pools are amazing.
Here are some suggestions to make Brasada even better
1.) The country music that is played incessantly at the restaurants drives my wife nuts. It is out of character with property as it seems hokey. A little variety would be nice. Nobody here has come here looking for a dude ranch
2.) The rental bike fleet is not well maintained. The bikes are barely good enough/safe enough for getting around the property
3.) The food choices at the pool area are very limited. I was also surprised that the smoothies served there are complete junk - and this is out of character with the excellent ingredients used in the restaurants. There appears to be no fresh fruit in these smoothies - rather they are some kind of sugary syrup blended with ice. I would happily pay more for a real fresh fruit smoothie.
If these three issue could be addressed, this place would be a grand slam for us.
We are headed there in a few weeks and can't wait!
