We have stayed here once before, so had a good idea what to expect. Location is fabulous, service is first rate. Sadly Hyatt needs to make significant investment in cabin upgrades and furnishings. The cabin we stayed in (546) was very dated - maybe 1980s at best. Will come back following the upgrades, if they happen.

This location was recommended by friends who stayed here some time ago. We had an oceanfront King Room which had a fantastic view. The service by the staff was great. However, for a UPSCALE property, the room we had (room 511) was below par. The room is tired and should be refinished. Furniture surfaces are stained and scratched. The bathroom... More

I stayed in a standard lodge room (versus one of the roomier timeshare condos). I got to stay two nights "gratis" because of my Hyatt member rewards. I had an ocean view, lower level room which was adequate but nothing special. The issue for me was there is no sound proofing and I could hear the people upstairs talking, walking... More

We loved this hotel! Note: we stayed in the hotel, not the time-share area with its suite/kitchenette rooms. Fantastic welcoming staff, starting with Jessica Corres at reception, and Diana in the dining room. We arrived well before official check in time, and the room was ready. The room: fireplace set up with fresh kindling every day (some hotels charge extra... More

We absolutely love staying at the Hyatt Carmel Highlands. The units are spacious and clean, daily maid service and the fireplace is always "ready to start" when you come back from a day of hiking, shopping or sightseeing. The Lodge is wonderful with HUGE fireplaces at each end of the room. The lounge has the best views of the ocean... 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.

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.
