CarlosrI7868DI, We are grateful that you chose to stay with us. Our team wants our guests to feel at home from the moment they arrive, so it is great to hear that you felt that way. The golf course is so lush right now, so the conditions make it a must play. Hopefully some deer greeted you on the course....

Unable to book taxi to airport causing me to nearly miss my plane. I tried to correct the person at reception but she still booked the taxi for the wrong day. Otherwise hotel was fine but certainly not worth the price with this poor level of service.

Kathleen B, I want to apologize for what appears to be a miscommunication between our front desk agent and yourself and understand that this created undue stress on what should otherwise be a restful stay with us. We have reviewed our process for making reservations for outside guest services and can assure you that it will not happen again. Please...

We visited the ranch for a wedding. The service was excellent from the beginning. Rooms were comfortable and has everything we needed. Very relaxing. The creek side rooms have a walk in closet. We never left the grounds. Easy to walk to the market for all of our meals. Food was excellent. I would definitely come back

Staff and service on point. Drinks poured stiff at the bar, the rooms were incredibly cozy, and the pool was open 24hrs. Great location tucked away in the hills-quiet and relaxing. It was a great experience, we will be returning for a longer stay in the future.

Our stay was nice. Walking distance to the beach, and staff will golf cart you down to the main road. Free Long Beach shuttle drives through the property to pick up/drop off every 20 minutes or so. Beds were very comfortable, rocking chairs on personal patios are a very nice touch. Prompt room service, 24-hr pool.

The Ranch is a beautiful hotel n a stunning location. It is the right spot if you come to relax and you are still close to many other restaurants outside. We however stayed in the hotel as we did not want to leave such a beautiful place.

Hotel was very pretty, food was great, stay was family friendly. There is definitely a need for more lounge chairs in the pool area. Guests paying 500$/night were forced to spread out towels on hot cement to enjoy the pool which is unacceptable for a high end resort and a major dissatisfier. Since we went for the sun and pool,...

This lovely resort is located in a canyon a short walk to the ocean. The setting is breathtaking and cozy. The ocean is also breathtaking and feels very natural as it is out of the fray of the Laguna Beach action.
