This place is amazing!!! Found by complete fluke on tripadvisor. The pictures on this website don't do it justice. You drive through some gates up a long road, where deer and other wildlife are casually wondering by. When you arrive at the lodge the service is excellent. We received a complimentary upgrade to a suite, something I wouldn't normally pay... More

The resort and it's staff exceeded our expectations. From the moment we entered the property, the team went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed.The room was spacious, the views were wonderful and there was such a sense of privacy, as if this was our own retreat. We only wish we could have stayed longer.

An utterly fantastic resort, second to none accommodation - be sure to opt for a suite as the views are fantastic and the properties outstanding! Friendly staff, idyllic location, gourmet dining plus the horse riding is well worth it - even if you are not a regular rider! They really take care of you! 5 stars!!!

My husband and I recently celebrated our anniversary here and it was amazing. The staff were all lovely and very accommodating. Service was quick and the quality of everything from the amenities to the food and activities offered were excellent. We brought our two big dogs and they were treated with just as much care as we were. They had... More

Found from TripAdvisor and was not disappointed! Service amazing great views from our room and LOVED the fireplace in the room. Only sad thing was we only stayed 1 night! Hope to return some time. Restaurant food was good.

Nestled into the low hills of the lovely Carmel Valley, this resort is the perfect place to chill, lounge around a sprawling pool and spa area and play memorable golf. The rooms and suites are both comfortable and inviting, all with their own deck. The food and service in the restaurant is excellent! The gold course is both beautiful and... More

Most of our family, excluding 1 boy, but including our 16yr and 22yr-old boys made a quick trip out in August before school started in Texas. We wanted to get away from the heat and do something different. Success on all fronts for us. Weather was perfect, 60-75 degrees 15 miles inland at Carmel Valley. Unlike recent reviewers (who may...

I was here recently for a work offsite meeting and not only were the facilities great for that type of event, but it was a beautiful place to stay. I found the food to be wonderful, despite the fact that it was catered for 150+ people. I found it as good as the food in the restaurant. The beds were... More

This resort itself is not just in the perfect location, but has great accommodations and exceptional resort staff. The suites were modern, large, very clean and the fireplaces in the living room and bedroom could not have been more romantic. We were truly sad to leave.

We had a fantastic Labor Day weekend at CVR. We showed up Saturday mid afternoon and had lunch at the family pool. The choices were plentiful and the food was excellent although pricey for lunch. For some reason the pool was way too overcrowded around lunch time and when we came back late afternoon it was much more manageable. On... More
