My husband and I were blown away by how wonderful this property was. Not only is it beautiful with wonderful views of the ocean and a perfect setting, but the stuff went above and beyond in every area. From the front desk to the wait staff to just any employee walking down the hallway, we felt special and they anticipated our needs without us saying anything. We’ve traveled a lot and honestly this is the best service we’ve ever had!

This property was one of the most charming places to stay at Carmel. The weekend was romantic and so special thanks to our time at the playa. The champagne breakfast was delicious with amazing views! Only a short walk to the beach too. Highly recommend.
