Gorgeous resort which was frankly the highlight of our drive up Big Sur. We had 2 kids in tow and the unit was a perfect size with an incredibly luxurious feel to it. It's not cheap but you really do get what you pay for. The s'mores and dinner were both fantastic on our evening arrival but the real treats revealed themselves the following day. My wife and daughter did the bee experience, which got rave reviews, whilst my son and I explored the child's pool area at the bottom of the resort. It's an area that is undersold by the ranch for some reason, but it really is a gorgeous spot, the swimming with him and then the family hot dogs by the fire (even though it was a sweltering day) is a days memory that will never leave me.
I have decided to only post reviews when places really blow me away and offer something that I think should be shared, Carmel Valley Ranch certainly exceeded that benchmark by some distance.
