An absolutely brilliant hotel. Outstanding service and extremely comfortable/luxurious rooms. Great restaurant and the staff could not be more helpful. The perfect base to explore the Monterey Peninsula for a few days before driving the Big Sur.

My wife and I recently returned from a long weekend in Carmel. Our visit was better than expected. Bernardus is approximately nine miles from Carmel by the Sea, but as we learned during our trip, this is a very important factor. Their location is just outside the fog line. Which means we did not have to deal with morning and... More

We just came back from a last minute weekend getaway to Carmel Valley staying at the Bernardus Lodge. The grounds and location of this place are fantastic! There is great walking and running areas, weather is fabulous as you have no coastal fog and the grounds are serene. We ate at their outdoor restaurant twice and had the following sea... More

The welcome at the Bernardus lodge was one of the better ones we have experiences so far. We had high expectactions of this hotel and eventually they were all met, from the first minute to the last. Very helpful and friendly staff, especially the front desk and hotel manager are worth mentioning. The restaurant staff was correct and friendly but... More

Just got back from a one night stay and have nothing negative to say. We ate at Marinus which was spectacular, some of the courses were very good, while others were off the charts. The room we had was a double upgrade and was fantastic, so was the morning room service. They give you some complimentary wine, which is a... More

This was a great stop on our trip and so relaxing. The room was lovely and the pool offered a nice place to relax with lots of sunshine. We enjoyed shopping in nearby Carmel but enjoying evenings here. The restaurant Marinus is top notch with a great wine list. There are some nice casual restaurants nearby as well. The service...

It was our first time to the Monterey/Carmel/Big Sur area and we could not have been happier with our lodging selection. The location in Carmel Valley is perfectly situated away from the bustle of Carmel and on the way to Big Sur. Most importantly, it sits just beyond the marine layer of the coast which meant much warmer temps and... More

I visited Bernardus with my boyfriend and we had a relaxing trip at this comfortable, luxurious getaway. We arrived late having flown into San Francisco and the staff was really friendly and accomadating when we arrived. Our room was the Santa Lucia type and it was part of a stand alone building with a total of four guest rooms. The... More

An oasis in the Carmel Valley. If you intend on traveling anywhere near this hotel, you MUST plan to stay for a few days. The natural beauty of the valley is positively invigorating. The rooms are comfortable, spacious, and very quiet. While there is not much to do in Carmel, the scenery is beautiful and the food is superb. That... More

I love Bernardus for its great hospital and unbeatable scenary. The hotel is everything you would want in a hotel and more. It is small enough that you feel as it is all your own yet large enough to feel that you are in an exlcusive resort. The spa is fabulous and the pool is serene. I would recommend this... More
