Return trip even better than first- my wife and I have celebrated two anniversaries with Bernardus and hope to keep coming back. We love the private rooms, pool area, spa, tennis courts on site. The on-site bar and restaurant are excellent and service consistently great. Carmel is a short drive away. The hotel is always a bit warmer than the coast which is nice as well.

Absolutely stunning resort! From the moment you drive up to the resort you’ll know a great stay is ahead. Friendly valet greeting to start. I’m sorry I can’t remember her name, she was great. Bags were taken care of and she walked us up to the lobby check in area and offered us some lemonade or wine. Wine was the Bernardus Sav Blanc and the fun began! They personally took us to our room and pointed out features of the Hotel on the way. Our room was more beautiful than we had imagined. Pictures don’t do it justice. The fridge was full of complimentary goodies. From a bottle of wine, beers, tea and lemonade. Delicious cheese, crackers and sweet goodies. Fresh fruit in a basket. A large suite room with a beautiful view of the mountains. The fireplace made it so cozy. Loved the heated bathroom floors in the morning as it is a bit chilly this time of year. Even though our average day temps were very comfortable 60’s. In the valley it feels warm at these temps. The pool area is beautiful and very accommodating. We enjoyed it and the infinity spa at the top view from the property every day and some evenings. The restaurant, Lucia, where we enjoyed most of our meals was great. I’ll do a separate review. So much more to say about this amazing resort. You must go, it’s great for making memories. very good for special occasions, a fabulous trip for a Family or A romantic getaway. Looking forward to going back. Thank you to the front desk the fabulous valet staff and everyone on the property. Miguel & Jose were so personable. I’m sure you will thank everyone if you can remember all of their names it’s such a great staff!

Bernardus lodge was one of the most relaxing resorts we have visited anywhere in the world. The resort, nicely tucked into the Carmel Valley, was rustic but modern, quant, quiet, non-pretentious, beautiful, well appointed, expertly managed, and filled with staff that are well trained and exemplify what great service means. The property is amazingly groomed and maintained, filled with beauty around every corner. The rooms are everything one would expect and more. The restaurant, which we ate at for every meal while there, was outstanding, food, quality and service all being top notch. If you are looking for a place to just hang out, wind down, and relax, look no further.

Five stars! From the moment we walked in -- and the front desk team poured us wine and lemonade and gave our children seeds to plant in the garden -- we knew we would love this hotel. The pool was beautiful and warm, even in February. Our kids loved playing bocce ball on the lawn. Our valley villa suite was huge and comfortable, with a fireplace on the balcony. And the whole stay was full of surprises and delights -- a complimentary mini bar with cheese, crackers and wine; plush striped towels by the pool; bottles of water at the valet; toffee chocolates at turn-down. Everyone was so warm and welcoming; we felt like we were staying with family. My children are already begging to come back, and my little one cried when we left. When you book hotels online, it's always hard to tell what the vibe is (will it feel suburban and bland? or cheesy and scene-y? or magical and fun?) -- and I can reassure you, Bernardus is the kind of wonderful, magical place you will love and want to return to for years. xoxo

From the moment we checked in the service and staff were fabulous. We travel extensively and this is one of our favorite places to relax and enjoy. We’ve been coining for the past 6 years and it never disappoints - highly recommend if you’re looking for a special occasion or just a brief get away.

This was our first visit to Bernardus Lodge. We used to go to Carmel Valley Ranch before their prices went through the roof. We had a wonderful experience. An intimate resort with a "beach" feel, lovely pool, beautiful spa and great lipless hot tub. Our room faced the bocce court and even though there was a big event that night (wedding?) we didn't feel disturbed by any noise and slept well. Good mattress, a little soft for our taste but we like hard beds. We appreciated all the free goods and drinks in the room and the beautiful bathroom. We had a porch with two chairs also. We ate dinner at breakfast at the restaurant and I would describe it as average, especially considering it isn't cheap. Limited selection and nothing on the menu grabbed me. Oat meal at breakfast was quite bland. Plan to definitely come back!

I'm very proud to stay we were able to choose Bernardus for our wedding during January. We had an amazing stay with Bernardus taking care of us for the weekend for our wedding. Megan and Nicole were very helpful during the wedding to aid us to the perfect customized wedding. There was wonderfully curated areas such as their lush Rose Garden with friends and family in much admiration of the backdrop of the mountains of Carmel Valley as we said our I do's with the servers and hospitality of Bernardus only enhancing the feeling of care and comfort during our time in their beautiful garden, Ballroom and croquet lawn. The property was always well adorned with homage to classic rustic beauty of California's natural Flora & Fauna and gifted us with the relaxing sight as we walked their windy paths to and from the suites. We were able to enjoy their adult jacuzzi as they worked on updating the landscape and really admired the upkeep to keep the venue as beautiful as it was during our stay. Drinks were always refilled as we celebrated, staff were always well mannered with kind professional words (Thank you Lisa & servers from that night). Experienced choices made on our behalf even to best aid/accommodate our rambunctious celebration to a controllable level (Thanks for managing our guests Adam!) and the manager visits during our random visits to Lucia restaurant were always a kind greeting to look out for us during our meals or visits to the ballroom. (Another thanks for staff that had to tend to our guests during their trips to the bar or use of the lobby during their stay). Speaking of Lucia, there was much to want to eat with our eyes as much as with our mouths with the menu changing here and there to the daily local ingredients available. I do recommend to go there as the servers are impeccable with their timing for the different coursed meals desired with the food presentation and ambiance always so modern chic but romantic and quaint during our stay. The gifts, words and experience from the staff working were always looking for ways to accommodate us on our behalf even while we were busy with the wedding cleaning missed spots or organizing our items during the business of the wedding. Golf carts roaming the venue were always aiding us in the relentless task of bringing items to and from the venue with ease with even the largest of coolers (think the size of the whole back seat of your car) being no problem to members of their Valet team to wrestle into our suite (Thanks again Alan & Valet staff)! The best feeling to describe it is really the calm assured hand on your back even when you are a bundle of nerves or feeling the complete opposite of what a relaxing stay should be! Despite the hiccups here and there I really appreciate everyone's help for making it the perfect place to really showcase the feeling of love, care and appreciation during our wedding. I can only dreamily sigh and relive the days spent there in my mind but we do hope to make it back someday for our anniversary to remember all our little memories of our mesmerizing stay. We highly recommend others to also put trust in their stay and feel absolutely treasured at Bernardus with their professionalism and experienced understanding of hospitality.
