My husband and I stayed in a cottage which ideally located just off a grove of citrus trees with a lovely view of the main garden and the ocean beyond. The cottage itself was a nice balance of pristinely clean yet cozy with lots of decorative details and whimsical flourishes. Dinner at the Stonehouse was superb. Excellent service and brilliant cuisine. Two areas were disappointing. Because the property is laid out in a horse-shoe shape with cottages around a central garden, sound carries fairly easily among the dwellings. During our stay there was a large group for a private celebration who were loudly enjoying drinks and cigars on their terrace. Their conversation and cigar smoke could be heard and smelled throughout the property, which was annoying.

Room Tip: Splurge on a water view, it's worth it.

The resort is a quiet, gorgeous property - and it deserves all the accolades it gets. From the gardens to the restaurants, to the impeccable customer service and views of the Pacific - the San Ysidro Ranch is a very special place. The Old World elegance and romance of all the cottages dotting the property come with a price tag of course- but I can't think of a lovelier resort outside of Europe!

Room Tip: We had one of the "Citrus" cottages - a 2-bedroom with beautiful views. Staff I talked to ranked these units among the best.

This is an exceptional property. Every imaginable detail has been considered and implemented. The cottages are immaculate, decor amazing, attention to detail second to none anywhere in the world. The grounds are pristine and gorgeous. Service is remarkable at all levels. The food and dining is extraordinary (and I'm not even a foody).
After having traveled to almost a 100 countries I would normally take great exception to the very high cost of a property like this, but I can't. The experience was worth every dollar paid.

Room Tip: Every cottage is excellent

Everything about San Ysidro Ranch was outstanding. From the second we drove into the resort, we were impressed. The grounds are beyond beautiful and the service was exceptional and customer oriented. We had a beautiful room with a private patio that was truly fantastic. I wanted our anniversary to be perfect and it was thanks to San Ysidro Ranch. We enjoyed everything about the resort including the pool, the views, the gardens and the restaurant. We have stayed at a lot of spectacular hotels throughout the world. However, San Ysidro Ranch ranks right up there with the very best. It was a memorable experience and it is truly a special place to stay. Without any question, it was the perfect place to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary.

Perfect for a romantic weekend in every way. And what's more, the staff seem to totally understand and enjoy providing that kind of attentive and detail oriented service.

This is the best hotel experience I have ever had. Did not want to leave.

Room Tip: Creekside, lower down the hill.
