OMG!!! This was a slice of heaven. We checked in for several nights and enjoyed every waking and sleeping moment. I don't think that there was one flaw I could mention; other than our visit had to end! Our room was very comfortable and tastefully decorated( several carpet flaws-minor stains) a king bed with a very comfortable mattress, a gas... More

Bernardus is a Leading Hotel of the World and that is true. We had a room with our own outside jacuzzi with the view in the wine hills and mountains. It was magnificent. The restaurant Marinus is excellent serving local ecological food. The spa is also very good with very professional massages. This is a wonderful place to relax with... More

Bernardus Lodge has a wonderful location in Carmel Valley, only 15 minutes from Carmel by the Sea, 15 minutes from Monterrey. The lodge is charming, the rooms spacious ( I loved the fact that our room had a separate stall shower). The restaurant Marinus is spectacular, very accommodating to dietary needs, and the wine list is fabulous. The spa is... More

We stayed four nights in July and the property was lovely. Rooms were spacious, beds comfortable, flowers and the grounds were spectacular, and the spa service was attentive and excellent. And Carmel Valley is pretty and has the feel of the old west, quite different from Carmel and Monterey just a short drive away. Particularly enjoyed the small pool at... More

We had a delightful stay at this luxury hotel, which has a lot of character and old world charm. The property is beautifully laid out around a croquet court and has several outdoor seating spaces which were perfect for the June weather. The interiors are furnished traditionally but luxuriously with lots of wood everywhere. Our room was large and well... More

On our recent trip, we had reserved a room for three people, without knowing it, although we were a family of four. The staff made every effort to accommodate us and were very helpful and flexible in making our stay pleasant. We very much appreciate the extra effort by the staff and management.

Love Bernardus Lodge. We came here for my husband's Foundation Board meeting and stayed on for our 17th Wedding Anniversary. The rooms are cozy in the best sense of the word. Baths have tubs that are large enough for two with all the amenities you could ask for. They offer wine, fruit, cheese and crackers in each room at no... More

I highly recommend staying at this fantastic lodge in Carmel Valley. From the moment we drove on property we were treated like royalty. The valet called the front desk as soon as we arrived and there was someone waiting for us at the front door with two glasses on welcome wine and a private property tour. No front desk lines... More

Over the years we have seen small changes. Now especially with the new owners there seem to be more. It is still our favorite place to stay in the area. They always strive to put us in the same room and the staff is wonderful.
