Tucked between coastal canyons off the Pacific Coast Highway, the Ranch at Laguna Beach is its own retreat located in the heart of Laguna Beach. The 5-star resort treats guests to a luxurious SoCal experience with "postcard-worthy ocean views" (National Geographic).

The oasis is a mix of rooms, suites and cottages scattered around the picturesque 87-acre property. The private accommodations make it the perfect place for a romantic getaway or a family weekend. Each room is decorated with elegant coastal ranch decor and features a private outdoor furnished patio or balcony to take in scenic canyon or creek views.

There is no shortage of fun at the hotel with plenty of activities for everyone. Golf enthusiasts can swing clubs at the naturally lush nine-hole golf course. Guests can relax at the pool or take a two-minute ride on the complimentary shuttle to Aliso Beach, a family-friendly spot with a playground and bonfire pits. For more adventurous activities, guests can take advantage of the SoCal sunshine and go kayaking, surfing, paddle boarding or hiking.

Harvest Restaurant specializes in American and California comfort style cuisine, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Guests can also enjoy craft cocktails, hand-selected wines and local brews at the bar. Many ingredients are grown in the property's half-acre garden, and handcrafted food and drink is the main focus. Ben's Pantry offers coffee with freshly baked pastries and artisan-style sandwiches and snacks, as well as a full bar.

On a positive note, we absolutely appreciated our server, Amy at the Harvest restaurant. She was outstanding. Many thanks to her for making our anniversary dinner special. Lastly, the staff at the golf course were very knowledgeable, friendly and efficient.

1. Our travelzoo promotion included a bottle of wine to be provided by the resort. We were told at check-in a bottle would be delivered and it never showed. Upon checkout we mentioned it had been overlooked so they could be aware that the employee who assisted us did not follow through. The employee checking us out was rude and non apologetic. She said she'd give it to us to take with us if we wanted it. That defeated the purpose. Another disappointment was the lack of parking. There are very few parking spots and the valet parking service area is confusing and unorganized. Lastly, the walls of the rooms are not adequately sound proof. We could hear the adjoining guests television late into the night and conversation too.

Because it’s nestled between the hills, there is no cell phone signal

Very relaxing stay. The room was cozy and comfortable and the grounds beautiful. Dinner at the Harvest Restaurant was very good.

We stayed 3 nights and No tee times were available. Also, parking near our room was scarce, had to circle around several time only to leave the car with the valet.

The Ranch feels like a wonderful, secluded, quiet getaway In the middle of South Laguna. There are so many options here; if you need a quiet, serene property to chill out, the Ranch is perfect. If you want to drive into the Forest Ave area for a little more action, it’s close by. We used a travelzoo deal and would definitely come back. Meals were delicious and there is music every day from 4-8pm at the outdoor patio area overlooking the golf course. If you are into golf, there’s a nine whole course that meanders back into the canyon. The property is beautifully maintained and the staff is warm and friendly. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway, this is your eden

Relaxing atmosphere centrally located. Beach is within walking distance and even better that they have umbrellas and chairs available for you. Downtown Laguna is <10min drive and <5min there are a few restaurants. Easy to physically distance from others. Enjoyed the pool as well.

My only negative was the staff at the hotel wasnt super friendly. Generally when you stay at a hotel at this caliber, you expect the staff to be more service oriented. Other than that a beautiful place. I love the rooms

The setting is spectacular. But the property is underwhelming in comparison to some of the other properties in the area.

Amazing hotel! The staff is very friendly, Great location and service. If you want a nice family weekend getaway this is the place to go.

Two bedroom ideal for families. Rooms tastefully decorated and everything seemed in excellent condition. Difficult to maintain 6 feet distance at crowded pool. Distancing in restaurant seemed better by comparison. Nice outdoor nightly music. Lively crowd enjoying outdoor setting in the vending, lots of avid golfers during the day. Little beach path is a quick walk or golf cart ride to beach.

Nicest staff I've come across in a long time and my first time out in the world since the start of COVID, they did not disappoint.
