Although check in wasn't great (some foreign blonde girl) still Had a wonderful stay. Richard at the front desk was extremely helpful even gave us extra blankets and pillows. The buffet was great special thanks to Enrique he was awesome. Definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great stay.

Beautiful grounds, friendly and efficient staff, spacious rooms, great food and drink in all restaurants. Although I did not visit the spa this time, I have been there before and it is excellent. Golf course is well maintained and marshalls make sure pace of play is timely. Have stayed here many times and will continue to visit this wonderful place.

This place is so relaxing. Love the grounds, love the location, spa and spa pool. AVANT is an amazing dining experience and Veranda is a great place for cocktails and sitting outside in the evening. The service is very friendly and genuine. A true gem!

Very friendly, efficient, customer oriented. Setting was beautiful and peaceful. Highly recommend Rancho Bernardo Inn for any event. Went to Sports bar with my daughter and had a great time. Trevor was so in control and hard working and funny. Sherry was also hard working and friendly.

I went here for a conference in early May. I was trying to check in about an hour before the time, and since they didn't have my room ready, they treated me to a drink in the bar! So set the tone for a great stay. I ended up in the "fountains" building - a huge, clean room. Extremely quiet....

Our family gathered there for a wedding. I just couldn't get over how attentive and helpful the staff was. Never made it to the fancy restaurant, but got great food and drinks at the Veranda. I had a spa day while we were there and had one of the best massages of my life - Thanks Patricia! I don't know...

The place is so calming and relaxing you don't want to leave. The staff overall is so friendly and helpful you automatically feel welcomed. The food in the veranda is delicious and the live music adds a certain charm. The spa was gorgeous and in the grass were these little baby bunnies that they let live in the grass. So...

What a shame I visited on business! The hotel is a sprawling Tuscan style hotel with beautiful manicured garden courtyards with romantic wishing wells. Candlelit open walkways with outdoor drapes wafting in the breeze set a quiet glowing environment. What a pleasant surprise. A beautiful gem of a find. Not to mention a great golf course surrounding the property. High...

I stay here occasionally when driving back from Borrego Springs, even though it is only 20 minutes from home. It makes me fell like I am on vacation and the amenities are fabulous. The staff is attentive without being overbearing, and the spa services are out of this world. I don't golf anymore, but the golfers rave about the course....
