It was great ! It met all our expectations. Would stay in Creekside again when traveling to the area. Everyone was very hospitable and friendly. Fire pits were fun. Reasonable access to some great beaches.

The Ranch has been recently updated. Definitely a ranch feel but not far from the beach. Great location and great service. Unique experience vs other hotels and resorts. More of a boutique feel. More of a low pro experience which is very nice. Service was excellent. Restaurant was good and lots of locals come which is a great sign.

I agree with what the last few reviewers said! It really was a fantastic stay! Truly a perfect family vacation with 3 teenagers and my husband. The property is absolutely gorgeous and the rooms are a generous size. I would highly recommend staying there.

While our Creekside room was nice and spacious, it was overlooking a dried-out creek/culvert and far from everything. Building looked like service accommodations rather than guest accommodations. No bottled water in room other than $5 small bottle for purchase and "happy hour" including "20% off food and drinks" with no courtesy food or drink whatsoever. This is very different from...

M8981GWgeorgeb, Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We are sorry that your expectations were not met. While we took the buildings down to the studs and did a complete renovation, we liked the scattered campus layout and most of our guests seem to appreciate the intimacy of the vignette groupings it creates as opposed to the standard big...

We had a great time at The Ranch at Laguna Beach. The resort has a great location and it is surrounded by the most beautiful canyon landscape. It is only a short drive to downtown but removed from the bustle. We could easily walk to exquisite beaches. Throughout the resort there are numerous touches and details that are evidence of...

On the website The Ranch advertises lots of actives (golf, the beach, walking trails and biking) and a property were canyon meets sea. They neglect to tell you you there is a 4 lane highway separating the two. Upon checking in the only active on site was the golf course. Every other activity, including the beach, needed a car to...

Wendybabits, We apologize that we did not meet your expectations and value your feedback. Our team does provide beach chairs and towels for guests who want to enjoy the beach and we do provide a complimentary shuttle that allows only a short walk to the beach. It appears that some miscommunication with activities onsite vs. offsite might have occurred as...

After a long, dusty day of softball, my daughter and I pulled into the Ranch and were immediately greeted by a friendly "ranch hand" who directed us to the front desk for check-in. When we got out of the car we were blown away by the lush, green surroundings and the beautiful lobby nestled in the middle of the mountains....

Everything from the room, to the service, to the Harvest restaurant was excellent. We arrived after all the rain so the canyon was picturesque. It was exactly what I wanted, a peaceful romantic, yet cozy place for me and the hubby to enjoy some R&R. I would definitely recommend this place.

Our family enjoyed every minute of our stay at The Ranch at Laguna Beach. Every staff member was friendly and went above and beyond what is expected to ensure we enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and nicely decorated, the food wonderful and the atmosphere is like an oasis. Great for couples and families.

the facility, food and service were absolutely excellent. The only negative was no or poor cell due to being located in a canyon. It's a beautiful setting. i would definitely return, would just need to have family members have the phone number of the resort.
