This place just wasn't for us, not what I expected at all.Not what I would call a shopping centre. Very expensive, needs livening up a bit.

We are sorry to hear your trip to the Carmel Plaza was unsatisfactory. As a small, boutique shopping center, our retailers are limited and we understand this does not always satisfy the needs of every visitor. We appreciate your visit and hope you enjoyed you time in Carmel. More

The 'Carmel Plaza' has a range of speciality shops of a high quality spread across two levels along with coffee shop and bistro all set in a very relaxed and pleasant environment around a courtyard garden. Our favourite shop is 'Anthropologie' located on the upper level right at the end of the plaza. Parking available at the local parking garage... More

Carmel Plaza is a nice shopping area to visit. There are over 40 upscale stores such as Sur La Table, Tommy Bahamas, Cole Hahn, etc. Service is good at this center.

Just a lovely place to browse and buy! Nice combo of local places and a few chains. The fountain of woof was fun for my grand daughter.

They validate parking or you can park for free on the streets around the plaza (2 hour time limit), although harder to find during busy hours. We just moved our... More

If street parking is crowded, there is underground parking beneath the... More

I found Carmel to be just stunning. Just driving around the town and seeing all the unique houses and architecture was pure joy. The hilly town makes for very interesting streets. Some arevery very narrow and steep and look more like alleyways but they are actual streets with homes people live in. Really an experience. The plaza with the shopping... More
