From the moment you drive up, the staff is 100% about you and making you feel like a king. While attending a business retreat there, was able to take time for some shooting and horseback riding the first time doing both in over 10 years. The staff understood it had been a while. They made my experience riding the horse comfortable. Taking out the guns and shooting clays they walked me thru and to make me feel safe, and enjoy the time. I want to bring my family back for some fun times as you cannot experience all in one visit.
This was our 3rd visit to JL Bar and it hasn't disappointed yet. We always stay in the luxury cabins nearest the pool and golf/games area. Everything has always been clean and immaculate. The food is fantastic and we love having options for breakfast, lunch and dinner depending on our schedule for the day. They do have a great kids menu that will appeal to any child. During lunch both days, they brought our food to the pool, so we did not have to walk to the dining room. We had buckets of drinks at the pool to stay cool and they checked in on us. This was our first time to try out the spa services. They were phenomenal! Connie put together a spa package to include our 7 year old daughter and it was the highlight of her whole vacation and made her feel special and we appreciated the time she took to do that. Elezar and Michael did a great job on bartending and we enjoyed talking to them. Taylor and Nyomi were our servers in the dining room and we appreciated their attention to details and assistance. The grounds are kept immaculate and the views are gorgeous. Our daughter enjoyed the horse meet and greet and it allowed us to see another side of the ranch. There is also a pool table inside, shuffleboard, board games, etc for families to have fun together if it gets too hot outside (or rainy). Highly recommend this place for families or couples looking to get away.
This is an experience that will make you want to visit again and again. The staff was phenomenal, with the level of personal attention you receive, you will feel as if you are the only guest there. We already planning our next visit. Thanks to the entire staff, the GM Robbie, the ladies at the front desk, Joe, Taylor, Neil, Gavin, Kathy, Mike, Eliazar, and Calista. Sincerest apologies for anyone I failed to name. You all contributed to making our time spent memorable. Can't wait to visit again.
Upscale resort with beautiful landscaping and very clean right next to I-10. Went there for brunch. Great food and service. Learned about many things to do on the resort like hunting, archery, spa, horseback riding and etc. Even they have a day pass if you don’t want to stay for the night. Nice indoor and outdoor spaces for weddings or large parties. Will definitely come back.
This place is amazing. Manicured grounds, clean facilities and lots to do with many activities in which to participate. We stayed for a weekend with a business group of 50. We had the main lodge to ourselves. It even has its own Starbucks outpost along with a general store with unique items. A hidden gem in Sonora.
We had a wonderful time at this Ranch celebrating my dad’s birthday, we wanted to have a ranch experience but make it luxury and this is it! Definitely recommend, within the first few hours of being there we were already thinking we should come back. We came for a weekend of a concert that was in the airport hangar, a very cool experience.The team was really great and made the experience awesome. Mindy helped us with scheduling everything and building our itinerary so that we could pack in as much as possible without overloading us. The team also decorated our room for the birthday celebration which was a really nice touch. Joe was very personable and an overall fun guy to have as a guide around the property. Lorin did a great job with our shooting activities making sure we were safe and having fun. Bobby and Michael are fantastic bartenders who made sure we all had fun and got the most delicious drinks. John made us very comfortable with the horse riding for us and really knows his horses. Sydney really knows her wines and gave us so much information that I’ve never gotten from even Napa wineries. Just overall incredible experience and very guest focused.The grounds were gorgeous and the food was awesome - we recommend the prime rib for sure! We didn’t get to see much wildlife but that is how it goes with animals! Our rooms were comfortable and very clean.
My wife and I were lucky to have the resort almost to ourselves due to some cancellations. The staff treated you like family. I hunted for 3 days, while my wife enjoyed the spa. Joe took us on a tour around the property which was awesome. Being from Louisiana, I can be a little judgmental when it comes to food...the JL bar ranch didn't disappoint in this area either. My guide Ricky was a great guy. Unplugged from the office with the cell phone turned off was one of the most relaxing places I have ever been to. Can't wait to go back.
