Carmel Valley Ranch proved to be an outstanding choice as a place to spend a few days, recharge during a driving tour of the CA coast and enjoy the entire Carmel/Monterey area. The resort is ideally located, with Carmel just 10 minutes away, which also means the weather can be warmer and less prone to fog. The lodging units are scattered around the resort, and we stayed in one on the side of the mountain that offered a very relaxing view of the golf course, valley and facing mountains. Very spacious (approx. 1100 sf), with fireplaces in the LR and BR that came in handy for warmth and mood. What proved particularly surprising and pleasant was the staff. Laura was very helpful during the original booking process, and she was the one who recommended the suite with the view--she also called after we arrived to see if we liked it. Chris made check-in quick and educational, and also did a follow-up call. Misty, who manned the concierge desk, proved to be a real aid, which is what concierges are supposed to be, but often are not. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area and assisted with planning, even offering her favorite restaurants in the area (I always look for local input on dining, etc.). In total, Carmel Valley Ranch delivered what it promised.
