Carmel Valley Ranch is a very large property offering great accommodations, amenities and services. The whole resort is very well kept, the service cannot be better and the activities are endless-from different sports, hikes, yoga, to special interests including activities for kids. If you, plan to just stay for a few days without going out.....

My wife, daughter and I visited Carmel Valley Ranch over Memorial day weekend and had the time of our lives. The level of professionalism and hospitality displayed by the entire staff was indeed second to none. Reservations Manager Travis Wills is a wonderful asset to the Carmel Valley Ranch team and was an absolute pleasure to work with. The resort...

We had no idea what to expect or what awaited us upon our arrival at the Carmel Valley Ranch......we were amazed!!! Firstly the place is stunningly gorgeous, beautifully manicured grounds & golf course. But beyond that, what we immediately noticed was how WONDRFUL the entire staff was. From the moment we pulled up and were welcomed by the valet, to...

We have now stayed at the Ranch three times because every time we think about a family vacation we know that we won't find anywhere as amazing. Our son was 6 months old when we first went and he loved to float around in the "baby hot tub" which is 1 foot deep and bath water temperature. Now he is...

My husband and I spent a weekend at the Carmel Valley Ranch and I couldn't have thought of a better way to spend a special weekend celebrating. The experience was incredible. I feel that luxury hotels succeed with the attention to detail and the ranch was no exception to this. The entire experience from check in to our departure was...

I'm a return visitor to the ranch and always am sure to get on the courts there. The tennis area is undergoing some renovations which look to add a lot to the facility when it's done. Clark is a fantastic director of the program and is always prompt in helping me set up matches and arrange lessons .Had a clinic...

We stayed here just for the one night in April. A super hotel with lots of facilities. We enjoyed the pool and the sunset from the hot tub; the open fires and cooking chocolate & marshmallow sandwiches; the organic garden, hens & bees; walking amongst the new vines and the evening meal and breakfast. Nice selection of gifts in the...

We spent last weekend in Carmel Valley Ranch with friends and enjoyed the quiet nature of the location but also the beauty of the rooms and resort. We ate there, hiked there, swam there, golfed there and loved every minute of it. The country setting is a great change of pace and location is so close to Monterey and Carmel...

Carmel Valley Ranch is located in the foothills about Carmel Valley and nearly all rooms have excellent views of the valley or the golf course. Each bungalow is nicely appointed and most are two-room suites. Wifi is included in the mandatory resort fee but the biggest knock on this hotel is that it is way over-priced. Three nights was over...
