Best of the Best

When you visit Carmel Valley Ranch, plan to play – a lot – be it twirling on a tree swing or swinging away on the Pete Dye-designed golf course (where you’ll likely encounter deer and a wild turkey or two). Spanning 500 acres of scenic foothills, lavender fields, vineyards, and old-growth oaks, this sleek, 181-suite resort is all about pleasurable diversions. Hike the trails (they extend hundreds of miles) and practice your warrior pose on the hilltop yoga platform. Spend a day at the spa or relaxing poolside. Of course, there are plenty of dining options and activities for children and for your four-legged friends as well.

Advisor Tip

Nice with glitches

By: Amyb


Reviewed on: 20 Mar 2015

We enjoyed our two days at Carmel Valley Ranch. The rooms were large and lovely. Important to know that this place is really spread out. It is also under construction so meals are in the Clubhouse which isn't that close to the rooms. The pool near the lodge is very nice but not much (any) staff around to help. Nice rooms, as a resort they need to get their act together a bit more.

Peace and Rest on a Long Road Trip

By: Caroline


Reviewed on: 16 Apr 2017

Sitting by the fireplace in our room, we marveled at how far we had driven, and had finally arrived at this resort for a bit of peace and quiet. We were not disappointed. The bed was comfortable, and the setting in the Carmel Valley is matchless. We wanted to stay longer and will definitely be back!

Too many service problems

By: Giandomenico Rende


Reviewed on: 27 Jun 2018

Our stay was a disaster......many, many problems with service.....quality of food deteriorating. We have been at the Ranch for over thirty years and everything is clearly getting worse. They are understaffed and the staff is poorly trained. Things got so bad that they did not charge us for a dinner and gave us a complimentary bottle of their top wine.

Perfect Labor Day weekend in Carmel

By: M Davis


Reviewed on: 10 Oct 2019

Kate planned an absolutely wonderful 4-night stay for my young daughter and me over Labor Day weekend. The resort - Carmel Valley Ranch - was the perfect place to stay with elementary aged kids but still close enough to Carmel-by-the-Sea to enjoy the entire area, especially the beach. Kate's dining suggestions were especially wonderful! She even arranged for a dinner in the garden at the resort one night . . . so lovely. She pointed me to the best shops and the local children's library (which was a gem). Thank you so much, Kate, for planning such a memorable trip!

Wonderful Stay

By: travelmom


Reviewed on: 18 Jan 2020

From the property to the accommodations to the food, everything was wonderful about our stay. Our 1 BR suite was very comfortable for our family of four. We even squeezed in a rollaway so our teens didn’t have to sleep together. The food was absolutely delicious. We only had breakfast on property but it made is want to try other meals as well. Unfortunately we didn’t have enough time nor the weather lent itself to enjoying some of the outdoor amenities. Our favorite amenity was the gym and that the hotel was dog-friendly. We did take advantage of the gym and a class where not only does it have a lot of equipment and machines but lots of class offerings. While we were unable to travel with our dog, we loved seeing so many dogs on the property, traveling on the shuttle and dining with their families in the restaurant. While the property offers shuttle service to get around the property, we found it faster to hop in our car or walk. We waited close to 1/2 hour for one.
