We stayed at Quail Lodge recently while on a golfing pilgrimage to Carmel. The resort is fabulous and such good value. The prices are 3 star but the services and facilities are 4 star plus. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and the TVs state of the art.
We enjoyed dinner at Edgar's on the first night of our stay and could not fault the quality of food nor service. Highly recommended. We also visited, for a bit of fun, the Baja Cantina over the road which offers a Mexican alternative with a bustling conviviality and atmosphere.
