It is always disappointing to visit a place you once loved and find that it is no longer special. Our family used to come here several times a year, it was one of our favorite places to escape Los Angeles. However, this could be the last time we come back. We arrived and there was no one at the front... More

To start we were married here 5 years ago and it was the most magical day of our lives, so RV will forever have a place in our hearts. It's been 5 years since we've have been here (due to moving away) and our experience coming back exceeded my every expectation. We arrived early and our room, the Valencia Suite,... More

just left the San Diego area and stayed at Rancho Valencia with my daughter while visiting colleges. Could not have been a more perfect choice. Absolutely beautiful property. The staff was what stood out the most. They did everything with a smile and surprised with treats at every turn. The fact that I was not charged for parking and the... More

Renovated since I was here last time about ten years ago. Seems like each casita now has its own private jacuzzi. Huge room and bathroom that is modern. Great service. Quaint tennis resort. No onsite good though.

It was perfectly decorated, equip with outdoor and indoor fireplaces, outdoor spa, and a walk in closet. Each morning we had fresh squeezed orange juice and the paper delivered. Our housekeeper even left a bookmark in my... More

We were looking for a very special place to spend a few days to celebrate a milestone anniversary - and we hit the jackpot!! The room categories start at the suite level. We had a gorgeous king bed suite with full sitting area and private outdoor patio. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in. The fireplace... More

The spa was amazing with thoughtful appointments and well designed with zen and California nature in mind! 5 start service! This hotel gets it and I will keep coming back!

Brunch is almost perfect! Silver Patron Margaritas with wraps, clubs,salad & quiche. The location is excellent, dining outside with waitress on riding pants that fit quite well. You noticed I am trying to reach the minimum.

Following our weeklong annual meeting in Carlsbad, this was my choice for our free day. And it will be so as long as our meetings remain in the area! I am not a big spa person, usually overpriced for services rendered....well, that is simply not the case here. From lunch in the beautiful patio cafe to the spa itself...we were... More
