We bounced down a dirt road, passing small farms, to reach Rancho Pescadero, a great getaway on the Pacific Ocean with 27 rooms divided amongst a series of red adobe structures. My room was a true standout, with a sliding door that opens to the cool ocean breeze and views of the palm-lined property. During our stay, we could even see Saturn and Venus at night, which would require a massive telescope in L.A. That’s just how clear the air is in Pescadero. The property encourages walks on the beach, or maybe better yet, relaxing by the pool, fire pit, or bar, which has a barrel of house tequila. An above average restaurant draws from on-site gardens and riffs on Mexican classics. Near the field, they even have an inviting open-air kitchen with communal seating for cooking classes and special events. There’s also a spa and a yoga studio, in case you feel like pampering your body. There aren’t many hotels that could keep me on-site for a long weekend, but this would definitely be one of them.

Relaxing at Rancho
Reviewed: April 3, 2012
This is the kind of place I dream about; a raised-platform bed with the draping mosquito-net canopy, the sound of the pounding Pacific and a huge tiled and covered deck that is almost as big as my entire apartment back home.
I fell in love with the damiana lotion that is supplied, along with all the other refillable and 'green' products in the bathroom. In fact, I ended up checking my bag (which I never do) just so I could get a big bottle of that divine lotion home.
I loved the coffee and fruit plate delivery in the morning. What a civilized idea. Piping hot coffee, fresh fruit and no need to get buffed up to get it.
