We recently returned to the LaPlaya Hotel in Carmel by the Sea. The hotel has been upgraded with renovations and refreshed with new ownership. Been going for 30 years and just love the quant accomadations that are perfect for this amazing town. Nice walk to Ocean Drive and the beach. The staff is amazing. Breakfast was perfect. The views from most rooms are truly beautiful with golden sunsets. We can't wait to return to Carmel and the fabulous LaPlaya Hotel.
