This was our first stay in Carmel and we certainly weren't disappointed in The Colonial Terrace. Upon arrival the staff were most helpful, friendly and welcoming to us. I was travelling with my disabled husband and two daughters aged 13 & 4.
Gonzalo was certainly in my mind the nicest most helpful person I have ever met. All he wanted was for us to have a truly enjoyable stay, he went out of his way to help with providing information on the surrounding area and suitable activities for our girls.
The hotel although some walk from the town centre was in a beautiful aspect, and we were lucky enough to have a room that overlooked the sea. It was simply idyllic.
Our room was very spacious we had a small kitchen, dining area, well appointed bathroom and most comfortable beds. Our room was the The San Antonio suite, well worth the extra I'm sure.
The air conditioning could be turned to heat if the evenings were chilly.
Parking is a little tricky especially at busy times it seems to be a case of first come first served!
The hotel provided torches for those wanting to make the walk into town, sadly we weren't aware of that and it was a little hair raising walking in the dark with no street light!
Breakfast is served in the main reception area, a continental breakfast but very plentiful and extremely delicious. Once again though, at busy times we found it difficult to get a table, however you were allowed to help yourself to a tray and take the breakfast back to your room. Nothing was too much trouble. There were also a selection of childrens DVDs and games for free use of guests.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this lovely gem to everyone.
The largess suites are certainly wotrth paying that little extra when staying for longer than a nigh...
