We have now stayed at the Ranch three times because every time we think about a family vacation we know that we won't find anywhere as amazing. Our son was 6 months old when we first went and he loved to float around in the "baby hot tub" which is 1 foot deep and bath water temperature. Now he is... More

My husband and I spent a weekend at the Carmel Valley Ranch and I couldn't have thought of a better way to spend a special weekend celebrating. The experience was incredible. I feel that luxury hotels succeed with the attention to detail and the ranch was no exception to this. The entire experience from check in to our departure was... More

I'm a return visitor to the ranch and always am sure to get on the courts there. The tennis area is undergoing some renovations which look to add a lot to the facility when it's done. Clark is a fantastic director of the program and is always prompt in helping me set up matches and arrange lessons .Had a clinic... More

We stayed here just for the one night in April. A super hotel with lots of facilities. We enjoyed the pool and the sunset from the hot tub; the open fires and cooking chocolate & marshmallow sandwiches; the organic garden, hens & bees; walking amongst the new vines and the evening meal and breakfast. Nice selection of gifts in the... More

We spent last weekend in Carmel Valley Ranch with friends and enjoyed the quiet nature of the location but also the beauty of the rooms and resort. We ate there, hiked there, swam there, golfed there and loved every minute of it. The country setting is a great change of pace and location is so close to Monterey and Carmel... More

Carmel Valley Ranch is located in the foothills about Carmel Valley and nearly all rooms have excellent views of the valley or the golf course. Each bungalow is nicely appointed and most are two-room suites. Wifi is included in the mandatory resort fee but the biggest knock on this hotel is that it is way over-priced. Three nights was over... More

Carmel Valley Ranch is breathtaking all around. The resort, the pool, the hot tub, the golf course, the hiking, the garden, the wildlife, etc are one of a kind but what separates it from other places is the service levels. Every single employees is so accommodating. you can tell its a big part of the culture from the top down... More

We decided to take a last minute baby-moon. The front desk was kind enough to upgrade us to a beautiful room with an amazing view. Everything is so relaxing and peaceful. Our only critic is the restaurant on the property. The food is just ok. We wanted to enjoy the property and not go anywhere for dinner or breakfast. We... More

We had a quick weekend get away to the Carmel Valley Ranch. Every employee we encountered was more than friendly and willing to go out of their way to make our trip special. Our room was better than we could have imagined with all the bells and whistles! Hopefully we will be returning to the Monterey area soon and when... More

Best vacation ever: while my girlfriend attended a paint workshop, our husbands played golf at the ranch and i played tennis all day. The tennis director responded immediately via phone and email with all the tennis opportunities before my arrival. He sets the tone for the entire facility being friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable. He was on the court all... More
