I can see Rancho Valencia as my go-to resort on West Coast now. This Relais & Chateaux is like a perfect oasis right outside of downtown San Diego. Highlights on my trip: *Service: was greeted by name upon arrival and throughout my stay. I brought my puppy baby girl with me and the staffs are very accommodating which I highly...

We decided to make this wonderful small resort our base of operations to see the San Diego area and we were blown away. We went to the other Five Diamond resort in the area first and decided to checkout based on the extra distance and fragrance in the hotel that agitated my wife's allergies. AMEX made the reservations and RV...

I truly expected to like this hotel. I wanted to like this hotel. It's in a nice setting, it's a member of Relais & Châteaux, and it's generally been highly rated. My experience, however, was disappointing. The staff is poorly trained and lackluster. The physical plant is nice (our suite was large and well decorated), but the presence of parked...

It is always disappointing to visit a place you once loved and find that it is no longer special. Our family used to come here several times a year, it was one of our favorite places to escape Los Angeles. However, this could be the last time we come back. We arrived and there was no one at the front...

To start we were married here 5 years ago and it was the most magical day of our lives, so RV will forever have a place in our hearts. It's been 5 years since we've have been here (due to moving away) and our experience coming back exceeded my every expectation. We arrived early and our room, the Valencia Suite,...

just left the San Diego area and stayed at Rancho Valencia with my daughter while visiting colleges. Could not have been a more perfect choice. Absolutely beautiful property. The staff was what stood out the most. They did everything with a smile and surprised with treats at every turn. The fact that I was not charged for parking and the...

Renovated since I was here last time about ten years ago. Seems like each casita now has its own private jacuzzi. Huge room and bathroom that is modern. Great service. Quaint tennis resort. No onsite good though.

We stayed at Rancho Valencia for our ten year anniversary and were blown away with the amenities and service. Our casita was gorgeous. It was perfectly decorated, equip with outdoor and indoor fireplaces, outdoor spa, and a walk in closet. Each morning we had fresh squeezed orange juice and the paper delivered. Our housekeeper even left a bookmark in my...

We were looking for a very special place to spend a few days to celebrate a milestone anniversary - and we hit the jackpot!! The room categories start at the suite level.
