My fiancé and I recently stayed at Bernardus for a friend's wedding and it was wonderful. Charmingly decorated rooms, good food, and great wine - we recommend the Sauvignon Blanc :) the staff was attentive and the grounds were lovely, would definitely stay again. The room rates are a little pricey on the weekends but worth it if you are... More

My husband and i stayed here for a short weekend. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was relaxing. We loved the outdoor fireplace and we never felt rushed to leave it. Highly recommend it.

My Bernardus Lodge visit started with a site inspection right after check in, and ended with breakfast in bed. Actually, to be more exact, it started with sauvignon blanc upon arrival… I decided to fly direct from PHX to MRY and save some time, because time is money…I did not save any money though or did I?… Monterey’s airport is...

I had the opportunity to stay a couple if days at Bernardus Lodge and really enjoyed it. The property is very peaceful and serene, leading to older but very stylish rooms. Staff was fantastic. Would like to take a vacation there and explore the local vineyards in the Carmel Valley area.

We loved our stay! The rooms are comfortably cozy! Little tired looking but the coziness made up for that. We arrived after a very busy weekend for the staff. You would think they would all want to be going home but not the case. Very professional crew. Little disappointed the bar closes at 11, perhaps midnight would be a little... More

Just returned from a 3 day visit and already miss it! From the second we drove in to the time we left the experience was awesome. The staff was great, french toast for breakfast is a must, and the BLT at lunch was one to remember and last but not least the ravioli at dinner was outstanding. I will admit... More

Upon arriving at the Bernardus you drive in through a vineyard and large gates to the valet area. This valet area is very busy and crowded, not sure if they were understaffed or everyone came at once, but getting the cars out from in front of the hotel would be an improvement! The valet guides you inside and offers you... More

I love this hotel. We love boutique hotels and resorts and this hotel delivers. Our room was a Santa Lucia room overlooking the pool and a view of the mountains beyond the resort. The bed is big with quality linens and the room is also very spacious. The complimentary wine and beverages are also a nice touch when so many... More
