There are not enough wordsReviewed on 4/16/2014 Nickole M
La Tranquila Ranch surpassed my expectations ten times over. Kevin and Ana ensured that my day went beautifully. They were so incredibly accommodating to all of my requests and went above and beyond. They put so many personal touches that I did not have time to focus on and made everything look spectacular. They were so polite and friendly and had no issues with me making changes two days before my wedding. They even through in items that there was usually a charge for at no cost to me to make my day as beautiful as possible. The way the venue photographs is amazing. The property is breathtaking and the ballroom and bridal suite are absolutely stunning. I know that my wedding photos will be more than I could hope for with the amazing aesthetics and scenery La Tranquila Ranch has to offer. The value of this venue is astonishing to me. It is truly high-end on a budget. We were so impressed with La Tranquila Ranch and everyone came up to us to tell us how beautiful and nice everything was. I cannot thank La Tranquila Ranch and Kevin and Ana enough for giving me one of the most amazing days of my life!
WeddingReviewed on 4/08/2014 Laura H
Amazing wedding venue! Extremely accommodating and flexible. Ana and Kevin were wonderful to work with. My wedding ceremony was outside in front of the Ballroom and my reception was inside the Ballroom - it was absolutely beautiful and I loved every minute of it! I would definitely recommend La Tranquila Ranch to any bride.
La Tranquila Ranch was absolutely beautiful and the people we worked with were AMAZING. The whole day went smoothly because Cindy, Kevin, and Deborah worked so hard to make sure everything was perfect. They were all so flexible and responsive, so the whole process went well. The kids had a blast outside on the grounds and then inside on the dance floor, so they were all in good moods the whole night. Our guests enjoyed taking photos outside on the beautiful grounds, and so did we!! I highly recommend La Tranquila Ranch. Such a beautiful day!! <3
I read all the reviews on this place and did the research I could before booking their Villa for my wedding. Well the reviews I read must have been from a family member or employee because this place RUINED the most important day of my life. I hope my review will save someone from booking here and having that happen to them. What made me boom here was ultimately their massive oak tree in the back that was absolutely beautiful. But that in no way overshadows the mess that occurred on my wedding day. The grooms suite had no air conditioning on a day that it was in the 90's in Houston. Absolutely no way anyone could be up there without cooking in their tux. My poor husband in his tux was sweating to the point that his face was red and the whole grooms party had to come downstairs, forcing me to remain in the Bridal suite. Then the coordinator rushed us through everything--I paid for 5 hours and she crammed everything into less than 3. It was a small wedding but I felt that no one cared how important that day was to my husband and I. Then we are on the dance floor and the lights aren't even on! 2 of my bridesmaids had to figure out how to get it turned on! The the final straw was when not 1, not 2, but ALL the toilets stopped working. When my mom spoke with the owner she was told it was our fault because a guest turned off the water. seriously?! You ruined my entire day and want to blame it on a guest?! I'm in customer service and deal with people's homes daily and no one EVER is to blame for something of this magnitude. It simply comes down to crappy maintenance. Just look at the rest of the place--the carpet is in complete disrepair, the pool is green, and there was a piece of the flooring missing from the dance floor! I'm partially to blame for picking this place becauSe you get what you pay for. But when you're in the business of the most important day of someone's life and that memory you should take it more seriously. Not just say "the most I can do it a 5 or 10% refund". I'm appalled and will remember this day forever with a negative stigma attached.
Hard to get a hold off. I saw this venue on the knot website and immediately was attracted to its beauty. However, it took me almost a week to get a hold of someone to schedule a tour. Once I had a tour scheduled, I showed up to my appointment on time I may add. We followed one of the staff who was showing another couple the grounds into the office. He said hello to us and immediately went to helping the couple he was attending. My fiance and I decided to just sit down and wait. Another staff member came out but was helping another couple. We waited 30 minutes before we decided to leave. What's the point of scheduling an appointment if no one is going to end up helping you? I figured, if it took so long for me to get a hold of them and no one was even able to help me in a timely manner during my scheduled appointment, didn't think my wedding would go well.
We loved the venue. Due to rain we weren't able to get married outside like I had envisioned but it was nothing short of amazing anyway. Cindy I can't say enough about. So kind and helpful and really interested and engaged in helping you have your dream wedding. Kevin helped a lot in the alcohol area....And Debra was an awesome day of coordinator.
If you're looking for the perfect wedding venue, then La Tranquila is it!! I only wish I could score more than 5 stars. Kevin and Debra are an amazing team...providing top-notch, professional customer service. There was never a moment that I felt stressed while planning my daughter's wedding because Kevin and Debra were taking care of the details. Use La Tranquila for your venue setting...you won't regret it!
Cindy is incredible! Our wedding was perfect and we love every second of it!
Great place for events, best service ever and perfect location for any kind of event. Al the people in my event was so happy with the beautiful place.
It was like a dream come true! I had my wedding this passed Saturday 10/8 and it was honestly the best day of my life. It is such a beautiful venue and the staff was incredibly helpful during every visit! They really went out of their way! I will never forget this day! Thank you Cindy, Kevin and Debra! What a wonderful experience this was 💖
We went to visit the property today as a possible wedding venue. The condition of this property is deplorable. Smells likes mildew in the ballroom and villa. The grounds are not kept up, dirty pond/dead grass/dead plants/broken entry gate/etc. Our tour guide was not a good customer service representative. He asked us the same question multiple times. He never introduced himself. He also referred multiple times to doing a "cheap wedding." I request rating websites to go visit this property in person before giving it high ranking status because this property must be making up or paying for high ratings. This property is no comparison to other properties we have seen today, for the same price.
From anitial meeting with office manager Cindy I knew this venue would be the place where my husband and I would have our wedding. The level of outstanding service, professionalism, attentive to my needs to ensure my special day everything I dream of. I could not ask for more. The staff so nice ! The coordinator Tara on day of was so efficient and ran everything smoothly to ease my stress. I had nothing but compliments how beautiful the villa was a show great the food as well. I checked out many places for the price we paid this is one hidden treasure every potential bride should check out. I promise you will not regret!!!! I signed contract same day after I tour the property!!!
Fabulous venue. Elegant, spacious. Representives responsive, friendly and professional, really know their stuff!!
From the moment we booked LaTranquila as our wedding venue Cindy and her team have been amazing. Getting everthing corrdinated with vendors to even their suggestions assured me that they completely worked in our best interest. Their professionalism, cost effective options, and felixability made the planning process seamlessly. On the day of, everyone was all hands on deck making sure that my day went flawlessly and it definitely did. There was not one stressful moment that day. It was super exciting and we had a blast. My guests can not stop talking about how beautiful the venue was. It was a perfect day at a perfect venue for an outside wedding. It was simply beautiful and I have pictures to prove it. I can't thank Cindy and Kevin enough. If you looking for an elegant upscale venue with an amazing staff then LaTranquila is the place!!!
Words can't even describe how amazing and professional everyone is at La Tranquila. Our wedding turned out beautiful and went so smoothly. Cindy was always available when I had any questions. Our coordinator the day of our wedding was Deborah, and she was EXCEPTIONAL!! We receive compliments on how helpful she was and how she was on top of everything that needed to be done. We will definitely be recommending this beautiful venue.
This venue is not only beautiful, but the people there are very dedicated to meeting your needs and take the time to help you feel comfortable about the event. They are very supportive and helpful in giving ideas and are easy to communicate with in answering questions and dealing with any concerns. I would highly recommend this place and hope to have another event there one day.

My wedding at the Tranquila Ranch was something very beautiful, everything was done very well and prepared. The food and the service was awesome. I'm recommending Cindy Vidales for her preparation, dedication and because she really focused on the small details. I recommend the Tranquila ranch because it's a really beautiful place and excellent in all its areas.
The staff is great! They made my wedding day memorable!! Thank you!
Perfect in every wayReviewed on 10/23/2015
We got married by the tree and had our reception in the villa. This venue was perfect! There was a place for the bridal party to get ready and also somewhere for the groom and his groomsmen to hang out before hand. Cindy and Kevin were who we mostly worked with and they were so fast to answer any questions we had. I really liked that we were able to use their centerpieces and add in our own little touches if wanted. That helped save on the cost and also they have a great selection. Cindy and Kevin made sure that we had everything needed for our wedding night and made our day very stress free. I would defiantly recommend this venue to people.
I absolutely fell in love with La Tranquila Ranch as soon as my then fiance and I walked around. It was everything that we had expected and more. We had our wedding and reception in the Villa, which had so much character that we were looking for. It was the perfect location. The staff were so friendly and so amazing during the whole process. Kevin and Anel made the planning so much fun and they were so flexible. It meant so much to me when they helped me make arrangements for when my mom passed away a few months before our wedding day. During that time they we're so supportive and helped us with what ever we needed. Our wedding day went so smoothly. Even when it seemed like there would be a few hiccups, they stepped right in and took care of it right away. If I could go back and re-live that day, I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you so much for the amazing experience and a beautiful wedding day, La Tranquila! You guys are amazing! :)
