After my wife and I decided we weren't going to stay at the hotel we originally made a reservation at (due to it's questionable nature and the general uncomfortable vibe it was giving us) we last minute made a reservation at the Ranch at Laguna Beach. The staff was incredibly helpful and kind, the rooms were clean and cool, the...

The Ranch is a fantastic resort with all the amenities you need. The food whether the restaurant, cafe or in room dining is amazing which impressed us. The 9-hole is a fun course and though the spa is small it does have a lovely serene feel and incredible massage therapists. The scenery is breathtaking and you have a view from...

Beautiful canyon with delightful trails... for golfers. We imagined walking the length of the canyon but were quickly brought into line by a teenager on a golf cart who cited 'safety precautions' as the reason we were not allowed to walk on the trail (which by the way was marked with a warning about mountain lions and poisonous insects but...

I need to preface my rating (4 stars instead of 5). I came here to do a site visit for my company's meeting. I was intending to compare this property to others that we have held the meeting at or were planning on holding the meeting at (ie: Fairmont Grand, Bacara, Ojai Valley Inn and Spa, Rancho Valencia, and Terranea)....

This completely renovated property is absolutely gorgeous! It features a resort-quality lodge which houses a very nice restaurant, patio areas, and a special events level. The lodge is surrounded by a compliment of elegantly furnished hotel/patio rooms, a spectacular golf course, walking areas, and a casual area for drinks and snacks, all nestled up against the rocky hillsides that make...

The Ranch has been recently updated. Definitely a ranch feel but not far from the beach. Great location and great service. Unique experience vs other hotels and resorts. More of a boutique feel. More of a low pro experience which is very nice. Service was excellent. Restaurant was good and lots of locals come which is a great sign.

I agree with what the last few reviewers said! It really was a fantastic stay! Truly a perfect family vacation with 3 teenagers and my husband. The property is absolutely gorgeous and the rooms are a generous size. I would highly recommend staying there.

While our Creekside room was nice and spacious, it was overlooking a dried-out creek/culvert and far from everything. Building looked like service accommodations rather than guest accommodations. No bottled water in room other than $5 small bottle for purchase and "happy hour" including "20% off food and drinks" with no courtesy food or drink whatsoever. This is very different from...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our pristine 87-acre canyon oasis makes The Ranch at Laguna Beach one of Southern California's top resorts and spas. This romantic getaway, nestled just a short walk from one of Southern California's finest beaches, brings the best of coast and canyon together in one uniquely Laguna experience. Harvest Restaurant specializes in American and California style cuisine, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Enjoy food and drinks from the comfort of your room with in-room dining, or poolside soaking up the sun at the Pond Pool Bar. Spanning over 3,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, including four treatment rooms and a 24 hour fitness center, Sycamore Spa captures the bohemian vibe of Laguna's laid-back beach lifestyle. Our 9-hole Laguna golf course and country club in Southern California is situated in what's arguably the most serene and natural setting in Orange County. The course is carved into the naturally dramatic and lush walls of Aliso and Wood Canyons. ... more   less
