“Great place for a calm retreat, friendly service and warm cozy feel to the entire place!”
Reviewed 2 February 2013 via mobile

We just wrapped up our stay at the rancho bernado inn after selecting it for a management retreat and meeting venue. The sales staff was excellent in providing superior service. Conference room was good but not great. All in all I would recommend this place to those who like to golf and enjoy a private retreat. The spa was also very nice. Only downside was some construction happening on the course and some on the facilities, it could get pretty loud. The rooms were clean and well kept, had a robe laid out one night on my bed and the next a plate of chocolate covered strawberries and champagne. Nice touch!

If you're looking for a great place to spend a nice and relaxing day at a spa, go to the Rancho Bernardo Inn Spa! I would have to say it's one of the best spas in the whole southern California. I highly recommend massagist, Patricia! I ordered the Swedish massage, and she was excellent! Great service! Thank you!

We got an amazing rate for a Saturday night stay through their black Friday sale. We arrived early on a Saturday morning in December. The room was facing the parking lot, but had a great patio area at the door and wonderful landscaping. The room is a good size with a large comfy bed and plenty of room for the kids. They have a snores and s'mores program for the kids. It includes a tent, sleeping bags, a goodie bag of smores makings, and tiny stuffed animals. We had brought flashlights so the whole set up was great. The also have fire pits near the pool to actually make the smores.

The grounds are beautiful. Lots of winding paths with fountains and views of the golf course. They have a couple of pools. We tried out the family pool and it was nice and warm even in the somewhat chilly December weather.

The on site restuarant, Veranda, was only mediocur. It would be worth the 5-10 minute drive to go somewhere else. Totally boring fare for extrodinary prices.

Overall great stay! Can't wait to go again. Oh and worth getting on their email list for special prices.

Room Tip: Order the "Snores and Smores" program for the kids.

The RB Inn is a nice California Hacienda style hotel. Built around a excellent golf course with a great spa. The old growth landscaping of the project makes for nice strolls around the property.
There are 3-4 pools & hot tubs as well fro guest to use. The food is very good. The bar is recently upgraded & the restaurant is in the final stages of a remodel.

Rancho Bernardo is an oasis just 30 minutes from downtown San Diego. The property is beautifully is nestled in a valley between hills and surrounded by palm trees and a golf course. Service is first class, it boasts 3 pools, a spa, and a decent gym. I strongly recommend this place for a peaceful retreat.

As others noted the grounds and outdoor spaces are wonderful. For business the layout is confusing and the cell service was sparse and no WiFi in the meeting rooms. The rooms were very much in need of updates. I heard everything in the room next to mine as if the person was right next to me. Even the light from the room next to mine came in under the door. The hall from guests in the hall was just as bad. Obviously anytime there was anyone in the bathroom you heard all manner of noises which was unpleasant.
The food at Veranda was good, but the food at the group dinner and lunches was average at best and had no imagination.
The costs to get from the airport was high. Be prepared for $80 to $100 for a cab or $75-85 for car service.
Overall a fair experience.

My family and I stayed here for a couple days after Christmas. The resort was beautiful and the holiday decorations were amazing! We went to dinner at the Grill - delicious! We grabbed a quick bite at the cafe the next morning. Very friendly and quick service. The Spa looked wonderful, but we didn't have time to enjoy that. But I did enjoy the Aveda products in the rooms! Overall, it was a perfect place for a family getaway from Los Angeles.
