We recently spent two nights at the Carmel Valley Ranch. We booked based on a recommendation from a friend and from viewing the website. This was one of the few times that a hotel in my experience that the actual property was better than pictured on the website. The suite we were given was at the top of the mountain overlooking the entire property. The views were incredible! The suite was beautifully furnished and was exceptionally clean. The in room fireplace was a great addition n the cooler evenings. We took advantage of the free classes at the gym as well as the shuttle rides. The pool area was quiet and relaxing. We loved the firepits and s'mores. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My only regret was that we didn't have more time to spend here. I hope that we will return again soon!
