Wonderful big apartments, very secure. Beautiful gardens and lovely outdoor pool with an added indoor pool and spa and gym. Close to major shopping and restaurants. Would highly recommend it. Just like living in your own apartment and left to your own devices.

For a late arrival you have to speak to someone through an intercom device who let you into reception, then you have to pick up the phone at reception to speak to another person at an off-site company who look after several resorts on the Goldy, then you have to give this person your credit card details even though you...

Thanks Carmel By the Sea for being a great place to stay in July for my family of 5. We enjoyed your closeness to the beach & parks - just across the road- & it's not the busiest of roads. The area is great as the Pacific Fair mall is a short walk away, as are a good variety of... More

Stayed here a couple of times in the past and thought it was time to return, booking into a 3 bedroom suite (only 2 of us but loved the extra space), fantastic views of the ocean and all day sun. Very quiet which suited us. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Carmel is located in the ideal spot for the... More

My husband and I have been coming to these apartments for about 10 years. Although we have thought about changing venues, it always comes back to the decision of, great location to beach, shopping, and restaurants, and if you have children close to the theme parks. The convenience of a kitchen is also an attraction. The views from the balcony... More
