We organised a family and friends supper for 10 and found the staff very helpful. We all had an excellent evening with good food and fine wine. Our party included some children (5 and 3) and the staff were quick to ensure that they were fed quickly and given crayons etc to occupy them. Three of us visited for lunch...

From check-in to check-out, you know you're at a unique destination. I love to find properties that have character, charm & amenities. This surpassed all my expectations & I cannot wait to return. The rooms are well-appointed, comfortable & lovely. It was a treat walking around the grounds too. We treated ourselves to a spa treatment & had an amazing...

We did not receive the rooms we were promised. The lady at check in told me the reservation person must have been a rookie. I had the security guard called on us as we were getting ready to enjoy our day. My wife and I were very upset. The people below us were hung over as i heard them drinking...

From the spacious, well-appointed guest rooms, to the luxurious Spa, and everything in between, RBI specializes in making you feel like you're in paradise. Don't miss the beautiful golf course, the Spa treatments with a relaxing afternoon in a Cabana at the Spa pool, a creative and mouth-wateringly delicious dinner at Avant, and drinks on the Veranda as the sun...

Overall this place needs some upgrades in terms of AC's, look and feel and maintenance. Valet service was good, pool was good but rooms AC did not work. Toilets were slow one night and seemed like plumbing issues. Driving Range was nice and overall Golf experience was nice. We just need rooms to be fixed as they have old stale...

The property is beautiful. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Once you learned your way around the property, you realized that it was actually pretty easy to get to where you were going. Only complaint was that the air conditioner was apparently motion activated so that the room was pretty warm in the morning upon waking.

Headed down to the Rancho Bernardo Inn for a short weekend getaway, booking their "All Play, No Pay" dinner special. Service was outstanding from the moment we checked it. Friendly, accommodating front desk staff and awesome servers at both Avant (where we enjoyed a fabulous, memorable dinner of Rib Eye and seared scallops + appetizers), and breakfast Sunday morning at...

There was not anything terrible about the property. The setting and nature are lovely and truly magnificent. The place feels tired and the decorations are odd and do not fit the pastoral California location. The staff is nice. Huge resort, but there was no store and its in the middle of nowhere. The room service menu was ordinary and limited,...

The room was very large with a nice patio. It had a seperate vanity and a bathroom mirror. Huge flatscreen TV. No minibar. Room service menu is very limited but they delivered quickly.
