We enjoyed our stay and our 7-year old daughter had a lot of fun in the kids club. Our room with desert view was gorgeous as well as the pool, hot tub and fitness facilities. Service could be better as well as the wine menu in the restaurant.

I can't say enough about what a special experience Tanque Verde Ranch - TVR - was great for my family. Our welcome, our stay, our experiences with training and riding with the ranch hands just wonderful. Plenty of things to do for the family. If you have kids (all ages) will love this place. My 6 and 4 year olds...

If you prepay anything, they are 100% inflexible on making changes or offering credits. They ask you to arrive at tours 15 minutes early then make you wait around for 20 - 30 minutes. This place is very expensive. The grounds are lovely. The customer service falls flat.

Food lovely and much improved. Same with horses. Management making big effort to get ranch standard in everything up to scratch. Some great traditions: breakfast ride, cookouts, Dog House. Family made me re-book for 2017 before we left.

I went to this ranch for a week-long embroidery workshop and did not care much that it was a "resort," but it surprised me, The rooms were very comfortable and the only TV was in the lobby of the ranch house--which was just fine with me.

My daughter and I went to Tanque Verde Ranch the week after the Christmas holidays to have some special time together. We are both riders, and we wanted the experience of riding in the desert, and the pictures for this resort looked lovely. The resort is very much as the pictures portray.

Thank you for your comments. We are addressing our riding program issues and I appreciate your comments. With all the issues we have when it rains, it does take us some time to regroup. I can assure you that the corrals and holding pens have been scraped and cleaned along with our horses. Its an ongoing challenge for us...as you...

Our family (ages 18-88) spent a week at the Tanque Verde just after Christmas what a joy! The riders among us raved about the lope rides, one who started out as a non-rider felt the lessons moved her to a level that allowed her to enjoy the more adventurous trails. The nature program was a treat for those of us...

Great view, service, food. Met really cool and interesting people. Staff was so helpful especially to city slickers like myself. I will definitely go back. It is a fantastic place for families, business, girls weekend and even solo. Even off season there was plenty to do if the weather didn't cooperate. I love this place.

Tanque Verde Ranch Resort was named "Best Dude Ranch in Arizona" by Dude Republic in 2012, as well as a "Top Ten Family Resort" by the Travel Channel since 2007, and a "Top Five Ranch" by Conde Nast in 2008. Tanque Verde Ranch is one of America’s old time cattle and guest ranches. Located on 60,000 acres of Tucson’s most breathtaking desert landscapes, nestled amongst the Rincon Mountains and adjacent to Saguaro National Park and Coronado National Forest. Established in 1868, the superb guest ranch is recognized as the last luxurious outpost of the old west providing guests with plush accommodations, unparalleled amenities and a vast array of exciting activities such as horseback riding, mountain biking, fishing and hiking. La Sonora Spa is the perfect place for a bit of quiet relaxation, and the kids will love all the supervised children's programs!
