There is a reason Forbes magazine rates this #1. It is beautiful and photographs cannot do it justice in the same way a La Residencia in Mallorca. The best room service to your cottage. I had no idea a relatively compact 2 bed cottage could feel so very special. We left for the Mandarin Oriental but only because we couldn't...

Unfortunately, we only stayed one night at the San Ysidro Ranch whilst on the coast drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco, we wished it could have been longer. This is a real gem of a property with approximately 40 individual cottages nestled amongst the most delightful grounds in this part of California. From the moment we arrived we instinctively...

We celebrated our 25th anniversary in the Hibiscus suite. The overall experience was excellent and very romantic. We ate dinner at both restaurants and were surprised the menus were the same. The food was good. I really appreciated the gluten free rolls at dinner and pancakes and muffins at breakfast. The suite was nice and had a sitting room w/...

Unintentionally our SUV was waived through the path of a waiting bride as she stood to enter the aisle. We have had the opportunity to stay at San Ysidro Ranch on 4 different occasions. It is so private and quiet. A perfect place for relaxation. The service is excellent from reception, housekeeping, meals, and the unique style of each cottage...

My husband and I spent three nights at San Ysidro Ranch and absolutely loved it. Unfortunately, the weather was uncharacteristically hot and humid and overcast but, even so, we loved the hotel and can only imagine how amazing it would be in typical California clear and sunny weather. We stayed in Tulip which was beautifully decorated, perfectly appointed, spotless and...

The cottages are magical, the property lovely. Two caveats.....some of the staff were unengaged, which was most surprising, while others were superb. And the two restaurants offered the exact same menu. The food was not to the level of the cost or expectation and was uninspired.

SYR is a special place. It is the perfect place to relax and get away from it all. The Plow and Angel restaurant and bar are particularly lovely and they make a great margarita. We enjoy the hiking trails behind the property and can't wait to go back.
