4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Beautiful views, nice spacious rooms. The staff was helpful. Close to many things to see/do. The only complaints are that the couch was rather uncomfortable and the laundry weas unacceptable. Two washers and one dryer per unit and it closed at 8pm. We had the, come open it at 7:50 pm because they had already locked it and then had... More

We have visited a number of times as Hyatt Sedona Timeshare owners. The location is excellent, hidden in the trees, with a number of ocean-facing units with balconies. Highly recommended, and very close to the town of Carmel, Monterey and convenient to all of the towns all the way up to San Francisco.

We have a time share at the Key West property and we like to exchange it for the Highlands. The Carmel area in itself is a great area and the Hyatt property is wonderful. They have a great little breakfast and lunch restaurant with a deck that overlooks one of the most beautiful views anywhere. Great food as well. They... More

Two options are the Hyatt hotel, and the Residence Club. We own at the Residence Club, and always stay there. One BR Residence rooms are available for rental if vacancies exist, and include private balconies, wood fireplaces, full kitchens and in some units fantastic ocean views. Both hotel and Residence units offer access to the on-site restaurants, bar, sunset lounge... More

I was a bit apprehensive about staying here based on many less than stellar reviews, but it was actually ok. Yes, like everyone else said, the view was serene and awe-inspiring. The pool area was resort-like, the lobby was upscale, and the view from the restaurant was just stunning. That said, the room and the bathroom would be more appropriate... More

Our party of 6 stopped by this beautiful cliffside hotel to have lunch with seating on their outside patio equipped with outdoor heaters on foggy chilly days. Nice menu selection, and excellent service

Lovely accommodation in front of the ocean. Driving between San Francisco to Los Angeles, we have been there for a couple of days. Just missing some room service offer, specially when arriving late at night, anyway, the concierge has suggested a friendly pub near the hotel, was perfect for us. Great breakfast experience, maybe a bit slow, my humble opinion,... More

Recent two-night stay featured a great view of the mighty Pacific. We live down the coast but the rock formations in Carmel are stunning. Comfortable room with fireplace, though there was a draft from the opposite window. I use a lot of outlets (pet peeve) and they had them. It's a multi-level venue so request rooms per your stair-climbing ability,... More

We have stayed here several times and this stay was absolutely perfect. Part of the resort is a Hyatt timeshare and part is operated as a hotel. We stayed in a one bedroom townhouse (room 502) in the hotel section with a spectacular view of the ocean from both the upstairs living room and the downstairs bedroom. The room has... More

448 room luxury resort nestled in Monterey Pines overlooking Point Lobos State Reserve. Oceanview rooms include wood burning fireplaces and private balconies and 11 suites also include in-room double spa baths, kitchenettes. Renowned Pacific's Edge Restaurant (dinner only) and California Market Restaurant (breakfast & lunch). Rumors have been circulating that California Market is closed for renovation. These rumors are not true. We are open and enjoying the Fall weather and delicious seasonal menu items. In 2016, we will be going through several renovations at the hotel and will update guests once we have a firm schedule. ... more   less
