El Centro, California
Reviewed 11 April 2015

Took over over 2 hours to get checked in and into our room, the staff was totally overwhelmed by their large "Passover" group of visitors, the "Adult Only" pool had families with small kids using it, probably a nice place to relax and visit, but was not impressed, next wedding will select a different location.

The rooms are good size but your stay will differ depending on where in the resort your room is located. You can be far removed from the noise or close to the pool and restaurants. The complex is spread out and with beautiful grounds, golf course, driving range, an excellent spa, 3 pools, work out room, 2 restaurants with live...

The Rancho Bernardo Inn is always my favorite place to come and visit while in San Diego. The room I shared with my friend was really amazing and just right for a getaway. We were just outside of one of the pool areas, did not want to leave. The spa at the resort is nothing short of fabulous, so much...

Reviewed 6 April 2015 via mobile

The rooms are good sized but the rooms and hallways require some updating. Stayed here for work. The property is stunning. Location isn't the best unless you like to golf. Closer to wild animal park (my favourite zoo from San Diego). Parking is free but they don't have a charging station which is disappointing.

Great price for a family package. The kids enjoyed the pool and miniature golf. And the tent in about room was a hit with the s'mores to end the night with. The only negative I have is that they don't have a server by the pool and it takes long time if you want to order something. Best if you...

Great day with husband today, stealing away from the kids and grandparents for well-deserved R&R. Beautiful property, everything you need, and delightful service. Thank you Arlene at the reception for making us feel really welcome, and thank you Lindsey for a wonderful wrap treatment, taking into account my sunburnt legs. I felt welcome and pampered.

Would never stay there again. Need I say more. The advertise how great they are unfortunately when they proclaim how old they are they meant the furnishings and towels. A total waste of money stay at a super 8 at least there you will get some sleep and not wait 40 minutes to get checked in.
