This is definitely not a 5 star, luxury resort. From rooms to service , we were unhappy with all. We were extremely disappointed in the quality of the rooms: the beds were awful. Hard, poor bedding. There are no tv’s in the room. The bathrooms are outdated and the toiletries offered are low end. The service here was bad. I...

All parts of the dude ranch experience were fine. Especially all of those who work there. They care about safety as well as keeping guests happy. An incredilbe number of horses so that the proper horse can be chosen to fit every kind of rider. Food was great, including the Breakfast Horse-ride and the outdoor BBQ, but the Mother's Day...

Incredible location! The rooms were comfy, clean and charming. Food was excellent and the service was top notch. A special thanks to Jim who drove the shuttle van. He did an outstanding job and set the tone for a wonderful five days at the ranch. Loved it!

What an AMAZING place! Tanque Verde is beyond anyone's imagination! Everyone is so accommodating! The rooms were both beautiful and comfortable! The rooms were clean! I loved the fireplaces in my room. There was so much to do! I especially appreciated Wrangler Taylor who took me horseback riding. She spent a lot of time helping me to feel comfortable. She...

We got married at the ranch 2 years ago and decided to come back for a 2 night getaway when we were back in town and we were not disappointed. First off, we were really touched that all of the staff that had helped make our wedding amazing still remembered us, greeted us with big hugs and even remembered our...

We stayed at the TVGR for a business rewards trip with approximately 64 people. The ranch is gorgeous and is very pleasing when you drive on to the property. It's decorated beautifully with nice green lawns and surrounded by perfect desert landscape. I didn't experience any of the activities with horses so I can't comment on that. We took the...

There'a a lot to like about Tanque Verde Guest Ranch, and a lot to be desired. The setting is beautiful and winter or spring time in Tuscon is definitely the right time to be here. The natural setting is the best thing about this location as you are miles away from the city and nestled at the base of the...

Thoroughly enjoyed our time at Tanque Verde Ranch. We had never really ridden a horse prior to this, but the lessons and classes meant we were all loping by day 2 of our stay. All the wranglers were really helpful, especially Taylor who takes a lot of the lessons - she made them so much fun!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tanque Verde Ranch Resort was named "Best Dude Ranch in Arizona" by Dude Republic in 2012, as well as a "Top Ten Family Resort" by the Travel Channel since 2007, and a "Top Five Ranch" by Conde Nast in 2008. Tanque Verde Ranch is one of America’s old time cattle and guest ranches. Located on 60,000 acres of Tucson’s most breathtaking desert landscapes, nestled amongst the Rincon Mountains and adjacent to Saguaro National Park and Coronado National Forest. Established in 1868, the superb guest ranch is recognized as the last luxurious outpost of the old west providing guests with plush accommodations, unparalleled amenities and a vast array of exciting activities such as horseback riding, mountain biking, fishing and hiking. La Sonora Spa is the perfect place for a bit of quiet relaxation, and the kids will love all the supervised children's programs!
