Great view, excellent room, good service

Posted Jan 7, 2015
Carmel Valley Ranch is a beautiful location. We really loved the view from our room, and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. It was wonderful just to hike around the 500 acre property, play Bocce ball and wander around the facilities.

Beautiful place, we only stayed one night but will happily return often. The suite was gorgeous, especially the bathroom. The spa treatments are also fantastic.

Fantastic experience

Posted Nov 8, 2014
Pros: The rooms were fantastic. The feeling of camping with s'mores was so fun. I wish we could have stayed additional nights.
This was a fabulous stop on our recent vacation. Would highly recommend for couples and families with children.

Luxury and privilege

What a gorgeous setting. If I could stifle my Midwestern ethos and liberal guilt at enjoying such a hedonistic, beautiful place, I'd stay forever. Tennis courts were our main interest and they did not disappoint.

Amazing service and food in a piece of heaven!

Excellent stay at Carmel. Location is simply buccolic, relaxing and offers everything you need from multiple activities to fire pit, pool, jacuzzi, etc. Beautiful rooms similar to renting a cottage. Only issue: no mini-bar or movie rentals. Overall exceptional!

Beautiful and spacious retreat

Posted Oct 8, 2014
On over 50 acres this retreat has everything from 24 hr pools to spas to horseback riding. The room we stayed in had a gorgeous view of the valley, private balcony and a fireplace. I loved every second of it.

Locked IN!

Posted Oct 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
I was locked in my room! The door lock broke and I was literally locked in my room....luckily our room had an adjoining door and the neighbors were kind enough to let the room service guy, and maintenance man in. Completely disrupted the evening. I had to lock the dogs in the bathroom for over an hour. I was left with our door wide open, at night, while the maintenance guy ran to get more parts. The rest of my party was at dinner at the lodge, so it is safe to say they had a much better evening than me. This is the second time. The handle of one of the new suites came completely off during our last stay. We are regulars and after this event, not sure we will be back.

Beautiful property with a lot to do or just relax.

Posted Oct 6, 2014
Location: You are in the country but only 15 minutes to Carmel-by-the-sea and 15 from the Village in Carmel Valley which has many wine tasting rooms.
Carmel Valley Ranch is a beautiful property.Although the resort was fully booked, it is so large, it never felt crowded. I like the fact that they have a kids pool and adult pool and actually maintain those rules. Spa, food, service were all excellent. You are in the country but only 15 minutes to Carmel-by-the-sea and 15 from the Village in Carmel Valley which has many wine tasting rooms. This was a birthday girls weekend and all of will return for a romantic weekend with our significant others.
