I was here last weekend with my husband and kids and we had an amazing stay! The hotel is only 15 minutes from the Safari Park!! That was the main reason we chose the hotel. There were 4 other families staying at the hotel with us. The grounds are beautiful! The hotel is surrounded by lots of old trees including eucalyptus which smelled so fragrant in the morning. There is a garden full of flowers and butterflies too! You really feel like you are stepping back in time here. My kids loved the DVD library at the front desk (we couldn't figure out how to use the DVD player in the room and engineering came out immediately!!) The hotel reminded me a lot of Alisail in Solvang! Customer service was excellent! I accidentally left a few items behind in our room, and Dennis called me and let me know he would fed ex them to me! So kind!! We ate breakfast outdoors overlooking the golf course 3 mornings and it was so peaceful, the service was great! Highly recommend the breakfast burrito! We ate dinner off site and it was super easy to get an uber. There was no service at the pool bar, you had to call room service for food and drink deliveries, which was pretty fast. Unfortunately that created a lot of waste with plastic cups, to-go containers and bags. My kids loved movie night at the pool. They only got to see 30 minutes of it because of technical difficulties. I recommend a Classico King. Our room was right next to the valet and appeared to me renovated, no stairs to go up and down. The bed was comfortable. We will definitely be back! Read less

We started planning our wedding over a year ago, and RBI was one of the first venues we toured. From the beginning, Jennifer Guynn was compassionate and helpful. Anytime we had a question, she was quick to respond and willing to help in any way possible. We ended up deciding to hold the ceremony and reception next door at the Country Club of Rancho Bernardo, with our room block at RBI, and Jennifer continued to offer assistance, including helping us secure the room block, setting up golf cart transportation the weekend-of and securing photo locations. Of all the planning details that went into the wedding, our accommodations were among the most stress-free thanks to Jennifer. The weekend went off without a hitch and our stay at RBI was one of the highlights. From the moment we arrived, the Bell Services team was friendly and quick to help us move our items to our room. Even as we moved from room to room, bell services were always friendly and willing to help and we'd like to thank them for making our stay calm and enjoyable. We also held several events at the Veranda restaurant including a groomsmen breakfast and a going away brunch after the wedding, and Lewis went above and beyond to make sure that we were taken care of. He was very friendly, remembered our names, and went as far as offering to store and serve leftover wedding cake. I cannot thank Lewis enough for helping us create great memories with family and friends that will last a lifetime. Whether you're looking for a place to host your wedding or just looking for a great place to stay, I cannot recommend RBI enough. We can't wait to return! Read less

We came here from Washington state to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. It has been an absolute nightmare. We checked in and walked a short distance to our room. When we opened the door is was stifling hot. It was 90 degrees outside and the room had been tightly shut. When we tried to turn the air conditioner on we discovered it did not work. My husband spoke with the manager who acknowledged that it was broken. She offered to have someone bring us a couple of fans. They showed up with two box fans which were never going to cool down the sauna like conditions. They then moved us to a different room which can only be described as being located in an abandoned building. We were the only ones there, the doors were wide open to curb the musty smell and dead leaves were all over the entrance. The air conditioner partially worked but when we got back from dinner we were greeted with ants in the bathroom. When my husband went to the front desk the woman working the counter asked what we wanted them to do. I have stayed in cheap motels as well as very nice, expensive places and I have never had an experience like this before. I cannot believe they call themselves a luxury resort with rooms at $400 a night and up. I will never come back here again and I cannot recommend this place at all. If you decide to stay here be prepared. We are currently in the process of finding a different hotel to stay in while we are here since we are absolutely over this place. Read less

This facility used to be outstanding in all aspects. During this latest stay for our club's annual weekend golf tournament our stay was less than stellar. The rooms need refurbishment. Some buildings are under renovation and construction on the property. The golf course conditions were awful and their explanation was over-seeding. They definitely need better course maintenance and to be upfront with their marketing strategy for facility and course conditions. I was also charged a daily parking fee which was negotiated into the club's contracted pricing. We also paid premium fees for golf over the weekend with bad course conditions. If they would have adjusted pricing and been very honest and upfront with these issues patrons would be more understanding. Read less

I had lunch with my elderly friend at the Veranda at RB inn few days ago. After lunch my friend that walks with the help of a cane and not for long distance, wished to visit the property that she hadn't seen in a very long time. Scarlett, the beautiful young lady at the concierge desk was extremely helpful and gracious. She arranged a golf cart and drove us around the property. Scarlett is a gem not easily to find in these days. Read less
