Enjoy Summertime with the Family at the Rancho Bernardo Inn; Top Ten Things to do! @rbernardoinn #myrbistory

The family and I were thrilled to spend the night at the Rancho Bernardo Inn and take part in their Family Fun Package! With Summertime in full gear, it was the perfect time to wine, dine and relax by the pool with the kiddos!

The Inn was beyond accommodating and was the perfect spot for bringing the family to enjoy an evening away. We were given a beautiful guest room that had a patio that led directly to the Santiago Family Pool- talk about convenient!

Our room was decked out with two comfy queen bed, a lovely bathroom complete with spa robes and toiletries. A special touch which is part of the Family Fun Package, is the in-room tent for the kids to play or sleep in. It had a sleeping bag, sweet stuffed animal and delicious smores for later in the evening.






We had so much fun during our stay, but there was so much more we could have done! It’s truly a great spot for families; overnight or week long stays!

Here are 10 Must-Do’s at the Rancho Bernardo Inn:

The Spa: I’m a mom and what mom couldn’t use a wee bit of me-time?! Can you say Coconut & Orange Oil Massage?!

Pool Time: There are three separate pools for your dive time pleasure. The spa pool shown above, the Santiago Family Pool and Adult Pool.


Shopping: One thing I wish I had more time for was the delightful Inn shops. Fun mementos, unique gifts, fabulous Inn attire!


Golf: If you have a golf lover in your house, the Inn is the perfect spot to choose to stay. While the family is playing by the pool, the 18 hole San Diego Championship Golf Course is open and perfect for all skill levels!


Family Fun: Our favorite part about our stay was the Summer Dive Inn Movies by the pool! Held at the Santiago Family Pool, and directly right outside our door, was a full screen movie showing Rio 2, complete with free popcorn!




Wine and Beer Heaven: There are many, many wineries and breweries within a short drive of the Rancho Bernardo Inn; plus many are family friendly, including the Rancho Bernardo Winery just minutes from the Inn.

Great Food: The food at the Inn was fabulous. From the pool snacks to dinner at Veranda; my family was impressed!


Tunes & Tastes: Come by the Rancho Bernardo Inn for live music by some of San Diego’s best musicians, plus taste a sampling of the Inn’s signature craft beer and wines by the glass!


Free Breakfast for Kids: As part of the Family Fun Package, kids 12 and under enjoy a free breakfast at Veranda or Inn Room Dining! French toast anyone?!

Smores Fireside: Don’t forget to take that smores kit outside to the Santiago Family Pool!


As you can see, there is so much to see and do at the Rancho Bernardo Inn. I could definitely spend a week (or three) there relaxing.
