Customer Reviews for Rancho La Puerta (8)

Very Accomodating!!
Spent 2 wonderful weeks at the Ranch in Feb. Staff goes the extra mile to accommodate special needs and requests. I requested a gluten and dairy free diet and had a wonderful variety of very tasty offerings every day. You do have to monitor your intake. You are never hungry. The hiking program was very good. Moderate mountain hikes offered daily and 2 challenging hikes (7-9 mile mountain). My casita had a wood burning fire place which they prepared and cleaned daily. Great for the cool nights. Some rooms are close to the main road and traffic can be loud. Unfortunately, I had items stolen from the pool area; even being in Mexico; I expected better from the self contained resort, which spoiled an otherwise perfect spa experience.

I went by myself when I lived in NYC in about 2006. It was a wonderful retreat & I will be sure to visit again. I learned so much and continue to use the things I learned in my daily life, for example meditation, including labyrinth walking, and positioning my body so that I'm not in pain using Feldenkrais. The cranio-sacral therapy was freakishly amazing. The mountain air was refreshing. Because the food was prepared using produce grown on the grounds, I came away with a different perspective on food too.

My boss sent me here as a thank you. It was spectacular. I had the best time on the grounds. I had never been to Mexico before and the entire experience surpassed my expectations. I highly highly recommend . I will definitely be back.

Great Spa and lots of activities!
This spa-resort has a wide variety of classes, treatments, and extra activities. Our group love to hike and we enjoyed the daily variety of hiking options. Our favorite hike was to the spa own garden where they grow all their own vegetables and then we had breakfast there. They've opened the cooking school since I've been there and I can't wait to go back! Plan on LOTS of walking - the rooms/buildings are across the property and you will easily get in the 10K steps a day in just walking between your room and the activities!

A wonderful place to renew your spirit and body!
My husband and I just attended the Couples Week at Rancho La Puerta. It was our first spa experience and definitely won't be our last as it was a life-changing week. The spa setting itself is beyond gorgeous and serene. The staff are the most polite and dedicated we have encountered at any resort. The classes, whether fitness or topical, are professional with knowledgeable & enthusiastic leaders. There is such a great variety of activities to choose from ithat we didn't come close to trying everything. The food is fabulous, the cooking school and organic gardens are a highlight, the spa services are superb. We could not be happier with our vacation and have carried over that renewal since coming home.

Have a Fabulous Week
My husband and I have visited Rancho La Puerta for 3 consecutive years during couples week. There's so much variety we can have fun together or go our own ways and meet up at meal time. Wonderful, fresh, organic food. An incredible number of activities. Casual atmosphere. Walk around in your sweats all day and feel perfectly at home. The casitas are private and comfortable. We love it.

You Must Experience It!
After two trips to Rancho La Puerta, I haven't lost my enthusiasm for the facility and its services. The first time, I went alone and found it a very easy place to make acquaintances quickly with very little effort. On my second trip, two friends joined me as a result of listening to my rave reviews. Since Rancho is vegetarian, one friend expected to be hungry all week. She was truly surprised to find she did not miss meat and that the food was delicious beyond her wildest dreams. My other companion, an avid hiker, thoroughly enjoyed being challanged on her treks. The spa treatments, manicures and pedicures, spoiled us for the real world. In most instances, they were far better than what we get at home. In the evenings, there are a variety of activities - lectures, music, films. Bingo night is filled with fun and prizes for all. The abundance of programs, activities, excellent services along with interesting people make this a must experience.

I have been to a few spas in my life. Really like the destination type spas as they make you feel so great when you leave. RLP has tons of exercise classes and great instructors. The food is mostly vegan but really really good. This spa has been around for over 60 years and defines what spas should be. You will also make a lot of friends here as the bonding among the guests is really special. Do not worry about the Mexico tag, it is really first rate and might be the best spa I have been to. Bring sun screen!

Facilities & Amenities

Facilities & Amenities

Immerse yourself in a peaceful oasis of tranquility set in the heart of a 4,000-acre nature preserve. The Ranch’s natural beauty, lush landscaping, and warm atmosphere gently encourages you to let go.

In the mornings hike or trail-run along the mountain terrain of Mt. Kuchumaa. Some trails traverse up to nine miles of challenging terrain, while others are perfectly suited to easy, almost-level nature walks at your own pace. More than 50 exercise classes are offered in 10 gyms. Many classes are dedicated to Body/Mind/Spirit harmonizing classes such as meditation, yoga, and sound healing. A full-scale labyrinth is nestled in a secluded oak grove. Guests spend leisure time attending art classes, relaxing at the spa, taking farm-to-table cooking lessons, or resting by the pool.

Rooms & Dining

We have 86 garden casitas in seven different categories that are the pinnacle of indoor-outdoor living. Three new Villas Cielo or “Heavenly Villas” are designed to be customized whether you want to set up a private gym or workspace, and feature magnificent art, private dipping pools and secluded hammocks. The Ranch is truly incomparable. Your “room” is really a freestanding villa of luxurious style, proportion (many exceed 1,000 square feet) and privacy. It’s your personal refuge for the week.

Head to the colorful Spanish colonial dining room to dine on beautifully prepared vegetarian cuisine (including eggs and dairy) with optional seafood entreés at dinner that highlight the fresh-caught fish of Baja waters. At the outdoor Tierre Alegre organic juice bar, sip seasonal, cold-pressed juices and smoothies sourced from produce grown at The Ranch’s organic farm.

Rancho La Puerta is committed to ecologically sound principles in everything, and food is no exception.
