First Class

Posted Apr 16, 2014
Location: Rancho Valencia is about 10 minutes from I-5 and about 30 minutes to downtown San Diego and the Airport.
Rancho Valencia is a beautiful place to stay. The rooms are large and there are many amenities included.

A beautiful resort you'll find hard to leave

Posted Jan 1, 2014
Pros: Setting, staff, ammenities, interior design
Cons: At check-out I learned that the Porsches were for the guests personal use. It would have been helpful to have known this at check-in.
This is the first time I have stayed at Rancho Valencia. I have traveled a lot and stay in 5-star hotels. I was impressed with this resort and would definitely stay there again. The setting was lovely. The staff was professional and attentive. The Agave Suite was beautiful and had every ammenity to make it seem like a wonderful home. It even had a small espresso maker with a steamed milk frother. Whatever was requested was provided.

Probably the best hotel I stayed at

Posted Dec 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
The stay here was amazing. Since everything was just renovated, it felt really clean, modern, and elegant. The atmosphere is one that rivals San Ysidro Ranch which is also an amazing place to stay. Would love to be able to visit again soon. They surprised my wife with a bottle of champagne delivered to our room for her birthday despite it being Christmas Eve. The spa and the yoga room is amazingly beautiful and serene. And they give you free drinks and snacks in the room. Also free coconut water/Gatorade at the spa. Wow.

Beautiful Trip on the Oasis.

Posted Jul 8, 2013
Pros: This hotel was amazing! It was like being away but staying at home. Very nice accomodations with the most beautiful and lavish nature surrounding.
Cons: Some of the furniture needs to be updated. But overall it was lovely.
Location: Restautrants and La Jolla Beach is about 20 minutes away. Very nice area, secluded and not a lot of noise or hustle and bustle. It's perfect!
We came from Seattle to visit San Diego. It was our 2nd time in San Diego-CA. We really enjoy the city, sun and beaches. We stayed at the Rancho Valencia and had a blast! My family had a great time in the accomodations. We ate in the beautiful room, outside in the veranda. We went to play tennis and also took part in swimming near our room.. It was perfect and I can't wait to return. Thank you!

Great "getaway" place

Posted Feb 20, 2013
A delightful place to get away for a few days. Enjoyed the sunset from The Pony Room deck. Attention to details sets this hotel apart. Also enjoyed the shop, Sheridan at Rancho Valencia.

awesome resort

Posted Feb 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
The Rancho Valencia exceeded all of our expectations. From the moment we arrived, the staff bent over backwards to welcome us, accommodate every request, and make us feel like royalty. The room was the nicest I have ever stayed in. Large, luxurious and the greatest bathroom ever. Hot tub and courtyard were exquisite. The tennis facilities were immaculate and the pro, Robin, was fantastic. The restaurant and bar were comfortable and the food was fantastic. The outside dining and the firepits were terrific. For a romantic getaway with activities, there is not a better place to combine both at the highest level. I can't wait to return.
