Fabulous rooms but skip the food A review of Rancho Valencia

We had a lovely 6 night stay earlier this year and have to say that it was very relaxing and quiet. The room was fabulous- really large, beamed ceilings, fireplace, lots of windows and an enormous private patio. It really felt like a little house. The orange scented bath products were amazing. We didn't see or hear one other guest during our entire stay. The front desk staff was very friendly. However, I found the concierge to be rather rude and the woman who helped me with my reservations made a rather unpleasant comment. Something about because we were given a discounted rate we wouldn't be considered priority guests when receiving our room assignment. The resort knocked $50 off the rate each night because of the length of our stay. OK it's a discount, but not much of one. The restaurant is lousy though. Please skip it and go to Mille Fleurs a few miles away.
