We spent one night at La Playa to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Everything about our stay was perfect. The staff was wonderful and we were upgraded to the stunning La Playa Suite with its magnificent views. (I have never seen such perfectly clear windows before - how do they do it?!) The grounds are so lovely and the hotel itself is a tranquil oasis, tastefully decorated and boasting all the little amenities that just add a little something extra, e.g. shuttle service, afternoon wine, evening cookies, and a waffle breakfast that is way more than just waffles and not to be missed. Oh, and we slept so well on the comfortable bed! My husband and I have done many day trips in Carmel and stay over night at least once a year - but La Playa was just so exceptional - I'm ruined for anyplace else! LOL! Thank you La Playa for help making our 25th anniversary so magical!
