My favorite place to detox and relax for a week. I've gone solo, with my family, and I can say that there are many couples who attend together. If you're looking for a discount, contact me for a referral rate.

In reference to my last review, "Christmas at the Ranch" - Summer is a whole different experience then coming over the holiday ... but both PERFECT! Love the contrast of fires burning in the fireplace to wild flowers in full bloom and grapes hanging from vines. With the weather being warmer, opportunities arise, as in more dining alfresco and having...

I should know, i have been to Rancho la Puerta more than 20 times. In winter, in summer, the fall and in spring, it is all good. Better than good; it is fabulous. If you like a healthful environment with happy, positive people and fantastic facilities...Go with a group; go by yourself; just go.

I can't say enough about this place! Warm, welcoming, restorative, peaceful... a true spa get-away to relax and recharge. I'd come to Rancho La Puerta for my first time as a solo traveler last summer, and this year returned with a group of friends (who I'd actually met here last year... so nice to re-connect!!!). While we were only able...

Rancho La Puerta is where I go each year (for over 20 now) to restore my soul, body, spirit and happiness. The climb on the mountain magically washes away any adversity in my life and reenergizes me in ways that I feel alive. The mountain is actually where the earth's meridians meet and surprisingly, something happens for the good in...

This is my third visit to the ranch and it is every bit as relaxing as my first! The food is excellent! The employees are friendly and most helpful. Cannot wait to come back next year!

I traveled solo to Rancho la Puerta the last week of June/first week of July. Within days of arriving, I extended my stay. The Ranch is really a special place - it has a warm, down-to-earth family feel, extraordinary natural beauty, and an endless list of activities. I'm nearing 30 and I was a little worried about whether the Ranch...
