We booked a group event at Tanque Verde for 23 attendees. The ranch was simply amazing! The entire staff was pleasant. We even had a minor issue while there and the staff was more than accommodating! The food was very well prepared and there was plenty of it. We enjoyed the trail ride breakfast and they took great care with...

My 16 year old son and I just returned home from an AMAZING VACATION at Tanque Verde Ranch! This ranch is absolutely beautiful and very well kept. With the desert and surrounding mountains as a backdrop, the landscape left us in awe every time we stepped outside. Our hacienda was huge and very nicely kept. The beds were super comfortable...

We had a wonderful week at Tanque Verde Ranch! The staff treats you like family, and the cuisine is out of this world. The rooms are spacious and well attended... and yes, the pools are awesome. We hadn't ridden years but it felt great to be back in the saddle again... the Wranglers are very kind and patient. The grounds...

Therapeutic Riding of Tucson (Trot) held our annual fall fundraising event known as Horsin' Around last Saturday evening at the ranch in the Cotton Grove. The ranch staff is exceptional to work with from start to finish. We had 234 guests attend making it one of our most successful events. As a chair of charity events, I know first hand...

Review is for the restaurant. Huge disappointment and would NOT recommend anyone to take a trip all the way out there. I travel a lot for work and the one thing I notice a trend around the country is that people are moving away from the old and unpopular reservation system. I have been to countless restaurants around the country...

Dear Wolfpacrule... My name is Rita Cote and I am the General Manager of TVR. My husband's family has owned the Ranch since 1957. I was appalled to read about your experiences at our ranch. I can guarantee you that this is not an example of our customer service practices. Yes, we do take reservations and we recommend that practice....

This is the most perfectly relaxing vacation and everything about Tanque Verde is top notch. From the great people at the front desk who helped us out even after we arrived very late to the wranglers who make every ride perfect -- thank you! Our room was amazingly beautiful. The food was delicious and a great variety. The barbecue night...

We stayed at the ranch this week. The staff were very helpful. The rides were great. It is so much fun to participate in lope rides once completing the lope test.

We were attending a conference and did not participate in any of the Dude Ranch type activities that they have to offer -- which is a shame because it all looked so fun. Our casita was beautiful with a high ceiling covered in saguaro ribs, a tall fireplace and tons of space. The bathroom was bigger than some hotel rooms...

Quiet, tranquill, beautiful area, grounds, the rooms are just want you would think from a Ranch setting. The food is great, and there is a saloon! You can hike, swim, rest, relax...and take some pretty awesome photos! If you want get-away, it's here! Nestled up against the mountains, and at a dead end road...this is a jewel in the desert!...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tanque Verde Ranch Resort was named "Best Dude Ranch in Arizona" by Dude Republic in 2012, as well as a "Top Ten Family Resort" by the Travel Channel since 2007, and a "Top Five Ranch" by Conde Nast in 2008. Tanque Verde Ranch is one of America’s old time cattle and guest ranches. Located on 60,000 acres of Tucson’s most breathtaking desert landscapes, nestled amongst the Rincon Mountains and adjacent to Saguaro National Park and Coronado National Forest. Established in 1868, the superb guest ranch is recognized as the last luxurious outpost of the old west providing guests with plush accommodations, unparalleled amenities and a vast array of exciting activities such as horseback riding, mountain biking, fishing and hiking. La Sonora Spa is the perfect place for a bit of quiet relaxation, and the kids will love all the supervised children's programs!
