My husband, myself and our yellow lab had a wonderful time at CVR. The safety precautions due to Covid were followed and exceeded our expectations. We never heard the word "No" once. We will look forward to our return.

There is not a better place to stay in the Carmel Valley area. We have stayed here once before and will look forward to staying here again. The staff from the valet's to the check in staff to the waiters and golf shop are all top notch!

This was one of the most fabulous places to stay. The staff made every commitment to look after their guest’s safety as well as providing a small piece of paradise! For two nights we could forget (most) of the cares of the world. Our room had the most luxurious balcony complete with gas fire and outdoor bath. We enjoyed having an isolated breakfast on our personal balcony (I mean who wouldn’t take advantage of the stunning view of the golf course?!) We spent most of our stay exploring the multiple pools and hot-tubs on the property. I also took advantage of the daily classes including barre Pilates (which was outdoors and spaced > 6 feet apart). The ‘smores’ kits by the fire pit in the evening might sound mundane for some, but as foreigners it made for a very romantic experience to enjoy this American Tradition for our first time. I would like to pass on a special mention to Israel at the front desk and Betty by the pool, who made our stay exceptionally pleasant. I cannot wait to visit again.

We are thrilled you chose us to visit during these ever changing times. The individually wrapped s'mores kits, with the stunning views is simply the best. Thank you again and we look forward to having you return.

The Carmel/Monterey area has very few if any resorts with a property the size of Carmel Valley Ranch. The moment you drive in the gated community a certain peace envelops you. You drive through a golf course/private community up the hill to the resort in the middle of an oak riparian environment. With the app you can check in remotely and don't need to meet anyone. We had a person in a golf cart direct us to our room and gave us a brief overview of the resort and the room amenities while outside. Our room overlooked the Carmel Valley and was especially striking at sunrise/sunset. The room was surprisingly bare and not well thought out. There was minimal space for clothes for our three day stay. The only storage area was in the bathroom which was inconvenient. The fridge which we used to avoid eating out was too large for the cabinet so required opening both doors in order to access it. The tub for soaking was not very private even with a screen that you could move over so we didn't use it. The bed was very large and took up much of the room and was deliciously comfy. The fireplace with the two side functionality was also inspired allowing you to be warm both inside and outside of the room The amount of wildlife is a delight. I got up early for a morning hike up to Garland Park from the hotel and saw wild turkeys and deer as I walked. Towards the bottom of the hill there is an organic garden which also has an apiary and a salt processing house. Both the honey and the salt can be purchased in the front lodge. The swimming pool and jacuzzi were pleasant and uncrowded. We had a couple of snafus that were surprising. The first was a blackout for two hours in the evening. Generators went on and off sporadically until power was restored. The second was our neighbors above us made a surprising amount of noise by their movements and woke us up twice late at night. During our stay no one asked us if we needed more towels or if we needed anything else which was surprising especially after another stay in another hotel where that was a daily occurrence during COVID. Overall I enjoyed the stay more then my wife did which is rare. Ambience and getting that feel of getting away is very much what this resort is about and is a difficult thing to recreate. Some work on room configuration and a focus on service during COVID would be where improvements could be made.

Dear ramblindave, Thank you for taking the time to submit your review and feedback. If you are up for it, I would love to learn what room number or the name on the reservation so that I can assess the room configuration. My email is mercedes.evans@carmelvalleyranch.com. I'm thrilled that you got to enjoy the outdoors and beauty the Ranch has to offer. In addition to the contactless check in option. Your feedback about asking if you needed towels or anything is something that we just launched last week. A relaxing getaway is more important now than ever, with all we are living through. Please stay safe and we hope to welcome you back soon. Thank you
