First of all, this was my 10th visit to Las Vegas. For most people visiting a place ten times means they really love it, and I do. For this trip I did something different. I stayed off the strip at Green Valley Ranch Resort & Spa. And guess what? It felt like Paradise!
Now don’t get me wrong, I love Las Vegas and the strip, because if I didn’t, I would not have gone back 9 additional times. Green Valley Ranch Resort is bringing something different to Vegas visitors – the property is providing that luxury resort component while still being in the Las Vegas area. Located just 8 miles from McCarran International Airport, Green Valley is going to blow you away with their amenities, activities and gaming space while also giving privacy to you while staying at the hotel.
Green Valley Ranch Resort Property:
The property here is Mediterranean inspired and the architecture exudes those qualities. From the moment you pull into the circle drive, you are greeted with gorgeous landscaping, warm smiles and perfect customer service. You almost feel like you walked into paradise, an urban one. Walking into the lobby you’ll find chic colors of black and white with arched columns throughout. The presentation of the lobby and staff upon arrival sets the mood for the rest of your stay – and guess what? It is going to be fabulous!
The Rooms at Green Valley Ranch Resort:
During my stay I checked into a Deluxe King Room that offered a generous amount of space at 495 sq. feet. The room itself was adorned in modern contemporary decor throughout offering a plush king size bed, 42 inch TV, desk area, sitting area, vanity, minibar, spacious closet, robes, and a separate bathroom with a soaking tub and shower. I did not have a balcony because of how my room was situated, however I could see the sunrise from the window.

Dining at Green Valley Ranch Resort:
The resort has a plethora of dining to offer its guests on property, even more reason to never leave should you not want to. With eight sit down restaurants including a steak house, Italian, a buffet, and more. In addition, there are some quick stop fast food options and a Starbucks on the gaming floor because guests are often coming and going. During my stay I ordered room service breakfast one morning – and I have to admit, the food was incredible. I ordered a yogurt parfait and it was not overly sweet, the granola was sensational and as a result everything worked well together on flavors.
I also dined at Borracha the Mexican Cantina. I want to point out that the service here was above and beyond! I went off menu and asked for a passion fruit margarita and they delivered. The food was scrumptious as well.
I did not get a chance to dine at Bottiglia but the restaurant is stunning. It looks like they took a page out of a dream sequence and brought it to life.
Activities at Green Valley Ranch Resort:
The hotel has a lot to offer its guests from pools, spa, gaming, bars, concerts, and movies. You could stay on site during your entire trip and never get bored because the property is that big and has that much to offer its guests.
The “Backyard” at Green Valley Ranch Resort is an 8 acre area for guests to enjoy with cabanas, an adult only pool (The Pond) and a sand bottom swimming pool, as a result giving you that true beach feel right in the desert.
Tip: If you are not staying at the hotel, you can purchase a pool pass Monday-Friday $20 adults/$10 children.
The casino is one of the prettiest I have ever been to and they offer over 2,000 games around the clock. I highly recommend hitting the sports bar for $2 margaritas (and I was skeptical) because $2 drinks anywhere usually means “watered down” but alas, I was wrong. Two of those drinks and you are good to go.
LOVED my stay at Green Valley. I had been wanting to stay here for about two years to try something off the strip and I absolutely recommend it to anyone visiting the Las Vegas area. The property is very spacious and really has it all – you could spend your entire trip here and never leave. If that inclusive resort feeling is important to you, this is your next Vegas stop.
