Al Janc, San Diego, California
Rancho de Costa within the Bahia De Los Suenos Resort is one of the most magical places on earth. The peace and serenity that I feel when I am down at "the bay" is something that you can rarely find these days. The sunrises are worth getting up for even after a night of a few too many margaritas, I try to never miss one if I can help it. If you are lucky enough to be at "the bay" for a full Moon you are in for a real treat. Rancho de Costa is situated on 25 acres of the most prime piece of property in the development in my opinion. Rancho sits out on the southern point of the mile long white sand beach with a beautiful set of stairs that leads right down on to the beach for easy beach access. The beach is great for volleyball games, sunbathing, beach runs, etc. and the fishing guides will pull up and pick you up right on the sand in front your accommodations at Rancho and return you back at the end of the day of fishing, now that is service. There are up to 10 beautifully appointed rooms at Rancho to accommodate large groups, we like to visit with the entire family and have had up to 20 people staying there at one time. We like to pay a little extra for a personal chef for the group for the week. You can let the Chef know ahead of time what you would like for a menu and the Chef will not only do the shopping he or she will prepare fantastic meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as take care of all the dishes so you can truly relax with your friends and family. It is great to have our entire extended family down all together enjoying all the amenities available like tennis, great exercise facility, swimming, snorkeling, hiking, golf and world class fishing or reading a book relaxing under the palapa by the pool. We just booked our next trip down in June and that is all the family can talk about. June cannot get here fast enough!
