I cannot say enough about The Ranch and what the venue has to offer. Our family and friends had such a great time celebrating with us. Those that stayed overnight at the property really enjoyed their stay, too. The Ranch is tucked away in the canyon and offers such a peaceful environment. I will definitely be recommending this venue to...

The newly renovated Ranch Hotel is incredible! The Tuvalu furnishings are the epitome of California luxury and the property itself is beautiful! I only wish I had a friend getting married so that I could plan their wedding at this location ASAP! They have easy beach access, in fact they share the same beach area as Montage Laguna Beach, which...

CharlieeMariee, We are thankful that you chose to stay at our resort. When designing the resort, our team wanted the decor to reflect the culture of Laguna Beach and pay homage to the rich heritage of early California, blending history with elegant and rustic coastal beach lifestyle.

The Ranch is a wonderful secluded property in the canyons of Laguna Beach. Many amenities and the golf was a lovely distraction. No cell phone service at that property due to the terrain and that is just fine by me. Allows me to truly get away from distractions. All in all I would recommend this property to anyone needing a...

The Ranch is the perfect place for a weekend getaway. The property is beautifully landscaped and has an intimate but luxuriously rustic feel. The staff is friendly, helpful and professional; the food and drink are top quality and the beach is a short golf cart ride away.

Karaw531, We are grateful that you chose to spend a weekend getaway at our resort. Southern California got more rain in the spring this year than in past years, so that has helped keep the canyon walls nice and lush. With the property having so much history, dating back to the Thurston homestead in 1871, the resort pays homage to...

I have stayed at many "high end" places, especially in the Orange County area. At check in, the girl was unenthusiastic and not very professional. More like an under trained teenager. After check in, it took the valet 30 minutes to even ask us for help. They even "radioed" it in and We were just standing there being avoided (maybe...

For a relatively new resort, this is an absolute gem. We were keen to spend time exploring the local area, but the resort amenities kept us close to the resort for a lot more time than we had originally intended. We would highly recommend a meal (or many) in Harvest restaurant and the evening cocktails & live music on the...

The pictures of the resort were very nice and I expected a very nice ranch. The ranch was ok but I have to say that I was a little underwhelmed. It felt like we were the only guests staying and the whole resort appeared a bit deserted. We'll prob stay at the Ritz next time.

A quiet country setting while only a short distance from the beach. Staffed with very nice people. We had great service from all the staff. Excellent food in the dinning room. A hidden gem I didn't know was there.

See the Harvest Restaurant review above. Really really bad service. What an embarrassment to your property. Aside from that we liked everything very much- the bocce ball and the corn hole games are fun and we golfed and had a nice time. We liked the room and thought the property was so beautiful

Our pristine 87-acre canyon oasis makes The Ranch at Laguna Beach one of Southern California's top resorts and spas.

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.
