Wonderful time. The rooms are fresh and newly decorated and amenities are new and nicely located. The restaurant is newly constructed and the food is good although a limited menu. Surprised The Ranch has such gourmet food on the menu. A fantastic place for weddings with the newly built and decorated rooms!

Always had my eye on this resort but recently found out it had been renovated by the 'Hobie' sports investor group so decided to check it out. Tucked into the canyon really gives a special getaway feel that still is super close to the Laguna beaches and downtown. We found some new surf favorites close by in Dana Point &... More

Wow. What a wonderful place! The setting is serene, the beach a short walk (or ride) away, and the staff is AMAZING. Sitting in the hot tub, in the rain, is a memory we will not forget. Along with playing backgammon by the fire. We can't wait to book again!

A wonderful place for a weekend getaway. Our room was very comfortable, spacious, and beautifully decorated. We took advantage of the jacuzzi and pool, but not the new spa and fitness room. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is lovely - nestled in a canyon, a short walk to a beautiful beach,... More

Although we usually stay beachside, we really enjoyed our "canyon" experience. The staff could not have been friendlier and our dinner was excellent. Location was great for an early morning hike and then afternoon leisurely walking through the town of Laguna.

With a family of kids from 5 though 17 and 8 adults nothing could have served us better, golf the beach and the restaurant, service etc was all we could hope for . The family rooms of various sizes had all the amenities and were clean and comfortable. Thanks for a wonderful time.

My husband and I stayed here for one night of relaxation and fun. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Ranch! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful!! If you need to get away - go here! The rooms were the vision of comfort and class, the food was delicious, and we can't wait to return.

Nestled at the bottom of an unexploited canyon in a forest, yet only a few minutes from a stunning beach. Lovely restaurant (just had breakfast but it was very nice and I'm picky about the quality), quiet and easy access for families with small children. There's a 9 hole golf course but for all the non golfers there's plenty to... More

Harvest Restaurant specializes in American and California style cuisine, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Enjoy food and drinks from the comfort of your room with in-room dining, or poolside soaking up the sun at the Pond Pool Bar.
