pretty good

  • 4 of 5

Rancho is pretty big, with 3 major stops with different facilities. Food in restaurants is pricey compare to prices outside, but definitely convenient. I would not recommend renting car unless you are planning to move from place to place. Driving at night can be challenging, we hardly left Rancho. There are shuttles which can drive you from stop to stop on the rancho. You can book activities and tours through reception. Little grocery store sells some things, but not enough for 3 meal cooking. There are several small restaurants along the beach as well.

This unit can accommodate 4-5 people, but keep in mind that there only 1 shower and toilet.

Unit is relatively clean, cleaning lady stops by, takes out trash and sweeps floors. We had some issues with water and power, but I would think it is pretty normal. WiFi is very good in the unit and on the premises. If you adventures take a hike from farthest point along the beach on the rocks at low tide. We loved it.

Wonderful amenities at Ranchero Santana

  • 5 of 5

Casita was a great place to stay, everything is very close, restaurant, store and beach. Even though we do not surf we really enjoyed swimming in the warm Pacific waters. Loved having multiple choices with really good restaurants, pools and beaches. Even the hiking was awesome. I would highly recommend staying in casita V-11 and hope to return again some day.

Wonderful stay in a casita near the clubhouse.

  • 4 of 5

We just got back from a week in this Casita and had a great time. Very clean, with comfortable bed. The location was very close to the clubhouse, pool, main surf peak at Playa Santana, and the small market.

We did not have a car and didn't need a car for what we wanted and where we wanted to go. But we do recommend getting a car if you want to explore more, like going to other beaches or further areas of Rancho Santana. We also walked to Playa Rosada from this casita. It's up and over a fairly steep hill, maybe a 15 min walk, but it makes a dip in the pool at the pool house over there worth it.

We cooked meals at the Casita and found what we needed. But we recommend going to a larger grocery store on your way for more supplies as the smaller market at Santana is fairly limited.

The meals at the main restaurant were great, pools really great. We had stormy weather most of the time, but still found lots to do.

We will certainly be back.

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful Casita within walking distance to the Inn. The property manager always responsive and full of information...The casita is very well maintained and has everything you need!!! The air conditioning works very well and it is so very close to the Inn/pool/front desk/restaurant/tienda/beach. All right there! To be able to use all the different amenities in Rancho is key! And is a BIG plus! Many different pools and beaches to chose from. The staff at Rancho Santana were awesome and we will definitely be back soon and will book the same casita! It's a garden view with in steps away from paradise! Very very close to the beach!!!
