What's New at the Ranch - 2016
Each year, Tanque Verde Ranch reinvests into their property with many improvements and enhancements to be sure that we are accommodating our guests and giving them the best experience. This year we’ve added a few rather important items to the list. Wi-Fi, updated bathrooms, added kid’s programs activities, and new flavors are just a few of the many things we have been working on to ensure a great stay.
For some of you, one of the Ranch’s most recent upgrades claims major significance. In November, they upgraded the Wi-Fi system. In the past, the signal has been ‘spotty’ at best, depending on your location. But now the system has been ‘beefed-up!’ You will now be able to use your phone, laptop, tablet, or computer without the hassle of finding a signal. When you are staying at the Ranch, we want to make sure you’re able to listen to your music, check your email and, of course, upload and share photos with your friends on social media bragging about your spectacular stay with us. And since the Ranch doesn’t have televisions in the rooms, those using the Wi-Fi to stream and binge-watch the latest and greatest shows while on vacation can (although we recommend a mountain ride instead.) We strive to keep our guests happy and have received many positive comments.
We are also reinvesting in our rooms by upgrading and renovating the bathrooms. We started in the Mexican Room and plan to have all bathrooms resort-wide remodeled by September of 2017. The newly renovated bathrooms will include beautiful granite countertops, illuminated vanity mirrors, and updated faucets. Sinks and countertops are receiving a luxurious modern look and tubs are being replaced with walk-in showers in most units. The renovation will bring a fresh look and vast improvements to all rooms at the resort.
This past year, the tennis and pickle ball courts were resurfaced with brand new artificial turf. The resurfacing not only creates a safer game of tennis but looks great as well. You can enjoy breathtaking views of the Rincon Mountains and the Sonoran Desert while getting in a little bit of exercise.
After a day of riding the trails in the warm Arizona sun, nothing beats a visit to the Doghouse Saloon. You’ll be even more excited to visit when you hear of what new flavors and menu items we have added! Quench your thirst with our Signature Drink Menu and fare from our new Bites Menu. Now, you will be able to enjoy house-made tortilla chips with guacamole and salsa, a gigantic pretzel with dipping sauces and much more. We also added some larger items if you want a little more to share or keep all to yourself. Check out our blog article for more details on the Doghouse Menu Upgrades. If you are reading on an empty, growling stomach, be careful as you are sure to want more.
We can’t forget about our little wranglers on the Ranch! You’ve probably already noticed some of the newer improvements we’ve made for them. The Kid’s Program playground equipment was upgraded last winter. Slides, swings, and endless fun, this new equipment will be your child’s favorite. We’ve also added a new team member. Alyssa Faller is our new Head Kids Club Counselor. She has a passion for horses and is excited to be on board with us. Kids Club will continue all of their fun activities but they’ve added a few exciting things. Read more about the Kids Club. Based on their age and ability, kids will be able to groom and ride horses, as well as receive horse lessons, enjoy dinner and a movie and so much more.
Tanque Verde Ranch is always making strides to be sure guests create memories during their stay. Whether you’re seeking to explore the desert and the mountains or relaxing for a family vacation, the Ranch welcomes you to come see the new improvements in person!
