My wife and I are just back from a week-long stay at Bernardus Lodge. This was our second time at Bernardus and, like their wines, is better with age. We were travelling this time with our 3-month old son and were nervous of many things, among them, how we'd be received when travelling to a quiet resort with a baby.... More

Great staff, facilities, location, rooms, pool, gym and weather. A fantastic place to get away from it all even the teenage girls were sad to leave. The hotel was quiet in spite of being fully booked. My only criticism is that the staff in Marinus took the fine dining experience (and themslves) a little too seriously for my British taste...

Enjoyed the vineyard location and the beautiful surrounding landscape. The gardens are very well taken care of - tons of lavender and roses blooming. Our room was very comfortable and clean, enjoyed having the patio. My only complaint is that the service at breakfast both days was really slow and disorganized. Otherwise everything great!

This was our 4th stay at Bernardus and, likely, our last.  We travel to San Fran/Carmel/Pebble Beach every year and have made it a point to spend at least 3 days in Carmel Valley at Bernardus.  However, this last stay was a disappointment.  While the property is still beautiful, the rooms lovely, and most of the staff exceptional, this time...

We stopped just for one night on a road trip to see what Carmel is like. Carmel Valley is absolutely beautiful and this hotel is amazing. It is so quiet and exquisite, I want to go back and spend a few nights there with my husband. We did have our 11 year old daughter with us but I would NOT... More

We stayed for several days at Bernardus recently and I can't tell you how much I enjoyed the experience. From the glass of wine greeting, to the escort to our beautiful room, to the wonderful staff at the restaurant, service was top notch. Our room was beautiful. It had a gas fireplace, jetted large tub, extremely comfortable bed and a... More

Wife and I stayed here for a short get away before we have our third child. Pampering and sleep were paramount. We stayed mid-week and got a deal offering 3 nights for the price of 2, which came out to less than $200 per night. What a deal. I would put this place on par with; and it seems very... More

From the moment we arrived until we sadly departed our vist as a guest of the Bernardus lodge was fabulous. We where treated like royalty. I think they must have secret earphones becuase when we arrived and they asked our name just as the valet was about to take our car, we told him who we where. We then walked... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Bernardus Lodge after spending several days at the Ritz in Half Moon Bay. Both were wonderful, but Bernardus was just a little more special. From the moment you drive up you are treated like royalty. The Concierge Staff, the waiters, ( Sergio, in particular) , the housekeeping staff, the valets, and the... More
