“Perfect for everything!”
This is the best resort that I have ever been. Quiet, comfortable, wonderful services, awful sheets, and shampoos. My wife also enjoyed the massage, although the spa had not been completed.
“A Delightful Stay”
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Rancho Valencia Resort and Spa. The suite was very comfortable with an open airy feeling - owing to the high, vaulted ceiling and ample size. The amenities and service provided were welcoming. We especially enjoyed the beautiful landscaping. The private patio was very enjoyable and the lobby, restaurant and spa were stunning. The offerings of the on-site restaurant offered wide choices - delicious and elegantly presented - both in the restaurant and room service. Definitely would enjoy another stay.
“cany wait to go back”
Please do something with the matress and the pillows smell bad; need to get new ones
“If you need the Ultimate in 'getaway' luxury nestled in a lush green Del Mar valley then this is it.”
When I built my most recent trip, Expedia listed this resort as the only 5-start resort that popped up in my search results, so I booked it. Needless to say, it didn't disappointed. There are no 'rooms' persay, just 800sq ft and bigger cottages all over the 45 arce grounds that you rent. The room was clean and bed was extremely comforatable (Pillow-top mattress and down comforter). Full cable minus the movie channels and prompt/delicious room services caters to the people that would rather stay in and its location in Del Mar caters to the high-class folks that want to go out and really live it up in La Jolla. We visited Seaworld and San Diego Zoo, both were about 30min drive with semi heavy traffic.
“Understated natural elegance”
Beautiful landscaping and elegantly charming villas. Fabulous service.
great all around
“The quiet and appealing atmosphere. Once you arrived you do not want to leave”
We spent 4 nights in this marvelous place with 3 and 1/2 years old boy. To our pleasant surprise this resort absolutely exceeded all our expectations. Strategically located just 9 miles from San Diego coastline it offers privacy of your own house, yet there are so many things to do close by. You can visit Sea World, La Jolla and Del Mar. You can swim in 82 degrees swimming pool or relax in hot Jacuzzi under the sky with shining stars. Later, order extraordinary breakfast in your room and have a glass of orange juice squeezed a moment ago with fresh newspaper in the morning. We did not want to go back to Bay Area... This resort is a rear find and by far exceeds 5 star rating. What are you waiting for? Go on and discover this jewel for yourself. Viva Rancho Valencia!
“Most relaxing place I've ever visited.”
Clean, quiet, un-crowded, and beautiful. Bring a good book and an appetite.
“Great for families”
We typically stay in Del Mar for our SoCal visits (we are from the Bay Area) and have two children under 9. Del Mar is bustling and right on the beach. This resort is about 15 minutes from Del Mar - a very easy drive without getting on the highway. We were concerned that we would be out of place with the kids at the resort but found the suite size absolutely perfect with the large living room, outside patio and overall square footage, that after 5 days we were not claustrophobic and could actually enjoy some time in the room. There were plenty of televisions in each room, including one over the soaking tub, so the kids could watch a movie while we watched the news or whatever. Rooms are very comfortable. There is a bar area, so we bought some snacks at the local market and filled the regrigerator with drinks with the kids juice and milk. The pool was perfect and we found that many people brought their kids. The poolside service provides beach balls, water frisbees and noodles for the kids to play with. The fitness center is in great shape, a bit small, but you can get a real workout in. We will go back.
“Hated to leave”
Fabulous resort, gret food, perfect weather, wonderful people, and all the tennis we could handle. My wife was ready to move in and we all hated to leave.
