So, I had a really hard time deciding whether or not to take off a star because of the food (more on that later), but in the end I still think this place is worth a full 5 stars. The property, rooms, and especially the service more than make up for the lacking culinary experience. Here's the rundown: THE ROOM/CASITA...

When I visit La Jolla and am there over a weekend, I try to make a side trip to the Rancho Valencia spa for the day - you have access to the gym and yoga timetable, the gorgeous pools and facilities and then you've got fantastic spa treatments. Lockers and showers very nice, service and facilities truly wonderful.

We had a wonderful time, a short time (just one night), but definitely a wonderful time. The entire property and every amenity we capitalised on was top class. The Pony Room is a really cool little bar/restaurant and the cocktails we fab!

Well, I’m going to have to start staying exclusively at Relais & Chateaux properties from here on out. Between this and our stay at the Planter’s Inn in Charleston, I’ve been blown away by the quality of the rooms and the excellent service. Tucked away down some meandering roads, it’s a little hard to get to, but once you’re there,...

Prior to the brunch we spent some time at the lawn. Relaxing for the adults with some drinks and fun for the kids with all the animals’ from/at the petting zoo. At first they tried to give us a table at the very end but quickly realized that this is not going to happen. After another 15 minutes of waiting...

Second stay at this wonderful Relais & Chateau and we were as pleased as we were on our last stay. We booked the Valencia suite, which is so beautiful, has a private plunge pool, huge terrace, complimentary non-alcoholic refreshments and a TOTO Neorest toilet, which I love! Upon arriving to the hotel gate, Lady greeted us by our name, remembering...

This is one of the most beautiful hotels/resorts ever. The rooms are huge and more of a suite like ambiance with patios surrounded by fruit trees and lush gardens. Has a wonderful spa and a relaxing pool area. Even has a formal croquet playing lawn. They have remodeled the restaurant and bar area and it is so warm and welcoming....

This resort is topnotch. Despite being topnotch in price, the atmosphere was surprisingly not snooty, nor obsequious. Beautiful grounds. Immaculate housekeeping. Attention to detail.Good restaurants. We did not take a tennis package so that we could TRULY relax but Marie arranged excellent match-ups, was knowledgeable and was eager to please. Overall at this resort the philosophy seems to be for...

Can't say enough about the attentiveness of the staff here. Everyone from the maids, valet, front desk, wait staff/room service to the managers were incredible. We have stayed at quite a few high end hotels and Rancho Valencia sets the bar for service. The Olive Grove suites are beautiful and decorated to suit the environment. Spacious and luxurious ranch style....
