Great getaway location

Loved this place, it was very relaxing. The room was very comfortable. If you are looking to get away to an isolated, quiet place, this is it. There are lots of activities kids can attend. If you want to dine at their restaurant make sure you have a reservation in advance, other option is in room dining.

Quiet,peaceful surroundings

We had a handicapped room which worked very well for us. We enjoyed the 2 rooms(bedroom and sitting room) Although it is a golf resort we enjoyed the quietness, greenery, and the deer outside our front door! The staff were very helpful and gave great information for the different sites we wanted to see. Most attractions were a good drive from the place. One downside for the handicapped room was the extended walk from our car to the room.

Luxury at a bargain price!

The room was actually more like a townhouse with a living room, bar area, huge bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and a shower, an ironing closet, and a bedroom complete with a wood burning fireplace! There was also a balcony off the bedroom. The view was gorgeous. Staff were really courteous and went to great lengths to accommodate us and make us very happy and comfortable. They arranged in-room massages, and made sure that we knew where we would eat every meal. The deer, quail, wild turkeys, and other exotic birds made this a very special experience. This property is on a gorgeous golf course and is under going huge renovation which did not take away from the beauty or the splendor of the property on bit! After it is renovated, I'm sure the prices will go way up, so enjoy this relative bargain while you can!

This property is a comfortable 7 miles or so from Carmel by the Sea. It is out of the crush of tourist spots, but an easy drive to all area attractions.

Worth the money!!!

The Carmel Valley Ranch was more than a hotel. It was an experience that most everyone should enjoy at least once. Situated a nice fifteen minutes from 17-mile drive, and Fisherman's Wharf; we could not have picked a better place. The room we had was huge; it had a Whirlpool bath and separate shower, a full living area, and a private spa outside. I would stay there again. We are actually returning next month.
