Stayed here for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon in California - I absolutely loved it. Big Sur probably wouldn't be for everyone, it's a very remote area, there's no real nightlife and the highway, although spectacular for views, is also a bit hairy to drive along with the high cliffs and crashing ocean below.
The resort is perched up on a cliff and has gorgeous, uninterrupted views of miles and miles of oceans, mountains and forest. A lot of lovely beaches are within twenty minutes drive, and there is a small pool on-site as well.
It's a very informal, relaxed place with friendly, attentive staff who printed us out a map of LA and where we should drive to see the sights and helped us with our luggage and gave us free dessert because we were on honeymoon! The yurts are lovely, have views of the stars at night and gas fires to keep you warm. Campsite is very quiet from about half 9 onwards, so it's great for some long sleeps and chilling out generally.
I thought the food in the lodge was great - we had the tagine one night and chipotle chicken the next. Breakfasts consist of DIY waffles, granola, oatmeal, apples, coffee and juice which is perfect.
It *is* pricey but for the quietness of the resort, the comfort of the yurts, the beautiful views, the friendly staff and the lovely food I think it was worth every penny. Def would recommend!
