I came here fro the first time in mid-February with my husband, and was looking for a luxury hotel that is pet-friendly. The Carmel Valley Ranch exceeded my expectations in every way. The service-everything from pool service, to check-in, to dining was excellent. Our room was bigger than I expected and had a fireplace and living room.
Initially, the "family-friendly" branding scared me away because I didn't want to hear screaming kids, but this resort is smart. The "family-friendly" pool is far away from the adult pool and spa. I also loved the hiking trail and activities that the resort offered.
My husband and I did the chocolate and wine tasting, and the sommelier was very knowledgeable and down-to-earth. Our dinner at the restaurant was delicious.
We will definitely be back-either with a group of friends or for another romantic retreat!
