Certificate of Excellence
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 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 by Hudson captures the bohemian vibe of Laguna's laid-back beach lifestyle. Our 9-hole golf course is situated in what's arguably the most serene and natural setting in Orange County as it is carved into the naturally dramatic and lush walls of Aliso and Wood Canyons. Guests can also dine at Lost Pier Cafe, which is located at Aliso Beach.

Great location, resort and food. It’s nestled in the mountains, no cell reception at first concerning but warmed up to the idea that no one can reach me. Walking distance to the beach but yet driving to places was close. We enjoyed our time there .. Victoria beach to see the

Ccastr047, Thank you for staying with us. Laguna Beach has so much to offer along the 7.1 miles of coastline, so it is great to hear that you took advantage of exploring the local area. Like you mentioned, facials at Sycamore Spa by Hudson sounds like a great way to relax in paradise. Regarding cell phone reception, due to our unique canyon environment, service may be spotty. Therefore, we encourage all guests to enable the Wi-Fi Calling function on your cell phones prior to your arrival at the resort. This will enable your cell phone to function normally throughout the resort. Our team also offers other solutions. We are thrilled that you had a great overall experience and look forward to your return visits. Sincerely, Sean and The Ranch LB Team

Positive - The bed was super comfy. High water pressure. Nice grounds & greenery. Negatives - I didn't like being in Building #1. Our Room (103) was right next to the road and we can hear the cars & people pass by. For the amount we paid, we weren't very happy. For that price,

Dream04454075921, We are stoked that you got to take advantage of the special offer and enjoy a three night stay at the resort. The fire pits on the porch are a great way to relax and keep warm during the cooler evenings. The rooms were decorated in a way that makes our guests live like a local. Thank you for staying with us and for the kind words. Please join us again soon. Sincerely, Sean and The Ranch LB Team

We held a business seminar at the hotel and it was very unique - not what I would have expected. Set back in a canyon from Laguna Beach it is a little off the beaten track. It looks like a smaller hotel built around the 60's set on a golf course that has been completely redone

MillionMiler17, Thank you for holding a business seminar at the resort. Like you mentioned, the property is very unique due to the off-the-beaten path canyon location. We are thrilled to hear that the service our team delivered enhanced your experience. Our property participates in many sustainable and eco-friendly programs, such as using reclaimed water for irrigation purposes, crushing every glass bottle on property into sand and sifted to be repurposed to fill bunkers on our golf course, using only paper straws at all of our food & beverage outlets and wooden and bamboo room keys instead of the standard plastic material. Regarding the cell phone service, we do our best to assist our guests with Wi-Fi calling and other options. We appreciate the feedback as it is very important to our operations. Sincerely, Sean and The Ranch LB Team

"The Main Building and restaurant can be far for some and is uphill. But if you ring a gold cart will be sent."
"Our room was in the 1st row: It's further to walk to but it had a nice view and quicker beach access."
"Pool view is better than parking lot view!"
"All rooms are good"
"The 'Canyon Rooms' are PERFECT for a couple! We loved our private patio!"
