Rancho Las Cruces is a one of a kind destination and true Paradise! The staff extremely kind, the views to die for and the escape from reality incredible. Definitely perfect to get away from the world, delicious food and large rooms (even with 4 adults sharing a double room)! Recommend 100%

This place is unique. The property itself is just amazing, an oasis in the middle of the desert. The whole experience is one of a kind. No TV or phone in the room, but an outstanding service. In the middle of nowhere, yet, the staff makes you feel at home at all times. The meals are included and unexpectedly amazing....

The prices charged definitely do not match the level of service received. The hotel is located on a beautiful property with breathtaking views of the sea and mountains, however the grounds are very poorly maintained. Every stroll we took on the multiple paths and trails, we found lots of litter and garbage. The hotel has its authentic 1950s resort look,...

Rancho las cruces is located in a incredible place in Baja California Sur. The landscape and nature has no comparison. However, the hotel is absolutely over prices vs. what you get on similar locations and services. The hotel is rooms are clean but very out dated. The installations are ok but again not for the price charged. Something that I...

We were told this was the first resort hotel in Baja California, built in 1948. It is located in the middle of nowhere, one hour by car from the nearest city, La Paz, at the end of a barely driveable one-lane dirt road. Expect no phone service, no room numbers, no room safes, and no room keys! They told us...

There is no way to sum up Las Cruces in less than a 500-page book. The sunrises are absolutely unreal. Rich golds and pinks illuminate the 80+ degree water. The air and water temperatures are always at an equilibrium. Not enough can again be said about the staff at Las Cruces. From the room maids, bartenders, and waitresses no complaints...

Las Cruces has an amazing history dating back all the way to Cortez. There are private homes owned by Desi Arnez, Bing Crosby and other families. It is like stepping back in time. The restaurant served our group of 19 an amazing lunch. Everyone was very pleased. There is memberships available.
