Easily one of the nicest resorts I have seen. Rooms are beautiful and very spacious. Staff is friendly and quick to help. About a 5 minute drive to Carmel Village and 20 minutes from Carmel by the Sea. Easy straightforward drive.

We recently visited with the Bernardus and can only give this gem our highest praise. Physically the buildings and gardens are stunning. We were in a villa, spacious, beautifully appointed and technologically most efficient. Bathroom was particularly impressive, down to heated tiles and a shampoo/conditioner so good that I purchased large bottles from the Spa. The Spa was elegant and the massage perfect. Croquet, bocce and putting on the green and comfortable seating around the pool and adult hot tub. The food was very impressive, and the staff friendly and helpful. The entire staff was well trained to cater to those travelers accustomed to the finest resorts. Linda Low and Buddy Metzger

If you are looking for an indulgent, peaceful and romantic adult getaway... then look no further! My husband and I eloped at the resort and had such special, memorable experience. We had to cancel our original wedding (130 people and had just 5 guest plus us) so this was a completely different plan than our original. When we drove up to the resort our jaws dropped at its beauty. We both were so happy with the decision we made. In fact I think it might have been better than our original wedding! The rose garden and all the landscaping are breathtaking! Having booked this resort site unseen we figured it would be nice (based on the website photos) but it really exceeded our expectations. WOW! The staff were superb and you can tell everyone really cares about making each guests experience special. The best customer service and attention to detail I've ever seen consistently throughout a stay. We stayed 4 nights. I am a nurse and I take cleanliness very seriously, especially now from the pandemic. This was our first time staying away from home and dinning out since the pandemic began, and we both felt very safe and comfortable at BL&S. The dinning room was spaced out safely and the rooms were exceptionally clean. Housekeeping was on top of everything and provided service twice daily. You can participate in nearly all of the resorts dinning/ actives/ amenities outdoors and really can minimize your interaction with others as much as desired. Sadly the spa was fully booked but we will definitely be back again and indulging. The rooms are perfectly curated and very comfortable and luxurious. Each room has a private home feel with a patio/ balcony. The property felt very intimate and romantic, and while it is "kid and pet friendly" I would say leave them at home and relax. The resort is about 20 minutes from downtown Carmel-by-the-sea. You will need a car if you plan on staying here for a few days as uber/ lyft can be scarce. You could also plan on not leaving the resort and just relaxing poolside or visiting some of the adorable tasting rooms in Carmel Valley (about 2 miles away). Valet parking is included with your stay. The food at the Lucia restaurant was delicious! Our meals through catering for the wedding were also exceptional. There are complimentary snacks, beverages and beer and wine in your room upon arrival and refreshed every 3 days. What a treat. We had such a lovely experience and cannot wait to visit again soon! I would 110% recommend this resort for your next self-care, couples or girls R&R weekend. Just do it, you won't be disappointed!

I stayed here three nights during a road trip down highway 1. This was one of the loveliest, most serene places I’ve ever experienced. Everything is so well thought out and executed, it’s casual luxury at its best. The grounds are beautiful, the service is perfect, the food is delicious and the rooms are luxurious. I arrived after a long car ride to be greeted with a lovely glass of wine at check in. My room was stocked with lovely snacks and fruit and wine and other treats. There were so many small thoughtful things everywhere. When I left the resort the valet had placed two bottles of water in my car. It was just small surprise after small surprise that made this experience so delightful and restful. I loved the pool, the spa, and the dining. The wine tasting was also nice. It’s just a small piece of heaven.

This was a much needed get away -- our first since the pandemic. Bernadus fit the bill. A beautiful setting with beautiful landscaping. We loved the gardens - especially the herb and edible gardens where we could see what was being grown for the Lodge's kitchens! The rooms were spacious and inviting -- with nice touches like the heated bathroom floor and the fully stocked complimentary mini bar. We enjoyed our wine and cheese while sitting outside on the balcony looking at the stars. The staff at the Lodge and Spa were all friendly, helpful and unpretentious. We hope to be back soon!
