Carmel Valley Ranch is such a great retreat! The property is terrfic for families and our son always has such a good time making smores, looking for turkeys and deer, and hanging out by the pool. The staff is freindly, courteous and anitcipatory. Could not ask for a more relaxing vacation on the Monterrey Peninsula...

With the quiet, lush setting and the proximity to Monterey and Carmel by the Sea, the Ranch is a great choice for couple and families. This time I had the 10-12 year olds with me. The river ranch all ages pool area has two pools and a hot tub. There is also a bar and grill there which makes it... More

We just left the CVR and truly enjoyed ourselves. The property was breath taking , the help was amazing and so helpful. We were with our two grandchildren ( under 3 yrs old) and felt relaxed in all public spaces . Our favorite was the family pool and the smores .

I stayed over Winter Break with my wife and two young boys. The room is very large, clean, and has a nice bathroom. The rooms are mostly set on a hillside and in trees. The staff at the hotel is generally very nice, and the restaurant is good. There is a kids club each day and night. The location is... More

We've stayed at Carmel Valley Ranch for 3 straight years and we are never disappointed. The property is obviously on the upswing because there are more people and more options. We can't wait to see how the addition to the dining area is going to look. We understand that they are bringing in people from the area as club members.... More

I stayed at the Ranch for a department business offsite, and then extra days with the family. The business facilities including service, food, conference rooms, organization were top notch. The ranch property is very large and grounds are simply breathtaking. Tons of wild turkeys walk around as well as deer, looking for the photo opp. My suite was two room... More

Nestled in the Carmel Valley hills, this luxurious resort is just that - luxury. The room was fantastic - amazing bed, tastefully decorated suites, huge bathroom/bathtub, balcony overlooking the golf course, perfection. The spa was wonderful. EVERYONE IS SO NICE. And not just nice - sincerely nice. I have never felt more welcome at a property in California than this... More
