The Ranch at Laguna Beach is a great property that offers the ambiance of a mountain lodge in close proximity to beautiful coastal scenery. Rooms offer relaxing golf course views. Beautiful large fireplace in lobby/restaurant area and terrace provide great gathering spots. Onsite restaurant and bar make it easy and delicious.

Stayed here recently on a business trip. Checked in on a quiet Tuesday and the front desk staff were very helpful and professional. Quick process to get my key and they sent a young man in a golf cart to drive me down to my room. Very nice touch as i did not have a vehicle and walking that distance...

Beautiful, modernly rustic, fresh, clean and perfect customer service. The staff and hotel team has done a tremendous job on this project. The ambiance and cool atmosphere keep this chic resort family friendly, couple friendly or even solo-getaway friendly. Delicious food, tremendously caring and thoughtful customer service and a gem of a tucked away hideaway!!

Still working out some kinks I think but overall it was very nice. The rooms are beautiful. The front desk staff needs a little more training. The spa does not have any extra amenities. Very expensive massage for just the massage, no sauna or steam room.

Wonderful time. The rooms are fresh and newly decorated and amenities are new and nicely located. The restaurant is newly constructed and the food is good although a limited menu. Surprised The Ranch has such gourmet food on the menu. A fantastic place for weddings with the newly built and decorated rooms!

Tucked into the canyon really gives a special getaway feel that still is super close to the Laguna beaches and downtown. We found some new surf favorites close by in Dana Point &...

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.
