Attended 3 day work offsite at CVR. I have been to several other venues in the area, but never CVR, so was excited to experience it. After our work reception dinner, I got my key and went to my assigned room. I was shocked and massively disappointed at what awaited me in my room. VOMIT chunks on the louver door...

Loved the service and the restaurant. Food was great. Our room was very average however, as I have stayed in another room before which I thought was much more well appointed. Considering we booked far in advance and were booked on a Sunday night, I was surprised that we were placed in a room below someone else instead of in...

We stayed here for two nights. The most costly location on our three week drive through California. Yes, it's very high quality. Yes, the experience and service is great. The environment is absolutely great and there are lots of walks and things to do which are mostly included. But is it worth it? I see they've been discounting which grates...

What a hotel! Beautiful property to walk around, lots of activities for all ages, great restaurant, and exceptional staff. Great for a romantic weekend getaway but also space for families as there are separate pools and activities to do. Strongly recommend and will be back!

This resort is wonderful. We were here for Mother's Day weekend. They had a flower garden with vases and supplies for picking the flowers. (Complementary). The setting is spectacular on over 500 acres, complete with hiking trails, pools, restaurants with friendly staff, and a golf course. It adjoins a state park for more hiking. The rooms are so attractive with...

Beautiful place I would highly recommend. My only complaint is the food service staff was very slow, even when restaurant and pool area were not busy. Maybe that is CA speed, I dont know. It certainly would NOT stop me from coming back. CVR is a must visit!

Great relaxation. Golf is loads of fun. Service staff and management are friendly and helpful. Restaurant experience was what you would expect from a top quality resort, although the menu was a bit limited. Noise from rooms above is noticeable.

This place is incredible. It's like a dreamy location where you are secluded and the air is crisp and there is nothing but the smell of fresh lavender which surrounds the property completely. There are plenty of nature sounds, chirping of birds, wild turkeys gobbling and chickens bawking and a rooster crowing. We stayed here for just one night and...

This is a great place for company meetings and/or a quiet get away. The staff has always been very nice and helpful with any questions or needs. They provide a variety of fun activities and the overall sense of feeling like one is away from the hectic everyday life is pleasantly relaxing. I always enjoy my stay at Carmel Valley...
