I stayed at La Playa with a large group of fellow golfers and had previously stayed there a couple of years ago. The location is great, with the beach only a short walk away and with an extra 20 minutes walk you can reach the shoreline holes of Pebble Beach golf course. Carmel shopping centre and most of the local restaurants are also only a short walk away. As for the hotel itself, the staff were very friendly and attentive, with nothing too much trouble. The bedroom was fine, if somewhat on the small side, but was always cleaned thoroughly and freshened each day. The only 2 downsides - firstly the walls in the rooms were paper which meant that you could hear everything from adjoining rooms and indeed further up the corridor! Secondly the fridge in the room was particularly noisy and had to be switched off at night. My colleagues all found the same 2 problems so this was nothing to do with my over sensitive hearing! The only food I sampled was a breakfast time. There was plenty of fresh fruit, cereals and an omelette station. Slightly disappointing that there was no other cooked food - it must be the only hotel in USA that didn't have any bacon, sausage, tomato etc! Overall a very enjoyable stay.
