Best pools not available to us as our youngest children are 13. The children’s pool was very noisy
We had a great experience at the Carmel Valley Ranch - beautiful location, comfortable room, really helpful staff and great food!
restaurant seemed understaffed. took 15-20 minutes to see our waiter multiple times
Service was terrible for a luxury spot. We heard ‘no’ so many times. Orders were forgotten or messed up. Hostess at restaurant was just rude.
This was an exceptional property. Very relaxing but not far away from anything you might want to do. The staff was very helpful and anything that we asked for during our stay was accommodated. Beautiful grounds - lots of deer and wild turkey.
The ONLY criticism was that the Neapresso coffee maker in the suite was not capable of making an actual cup of coffee. Would prefer a Kuerig or something else.
Set right in the middle of California’s famous coastline, and just a hair off the beaten track, sits Carmel Valley Ranch. With wide open spaces, local food, and stunning views, this ranch calls itself a 500 acre playground. Just off the Carmel River, it is home to golf courses, dining, hiking, tennis, archery, gardens, pools, and even its own vineyard.
The 18-hole golf course winds through the vineyard, a lavender field, and has two signature holes with stunning views and drops into the valley. Due to the ideal location, the weather is generally in favor of a good game with over 300 sunny days every year. The beautiful modern wellness center offers 19 different complimentary classes from strength training to barre classes and everything in between.
Children are welcome to tour the gardens, chat with the chickens, enjoy arts and crafts classes, and learn about beekeeping. Four-legged friends are also welcome and the ranch is prepared with plush dog beds and a full Pooch Room Service menu featuring locally sourced meats.
A full spa is available, including nail care salon and eucalyptus steam rooms. Home to an award-winning executive chef, dine in cozy modern splendor at the Valley Kitchen, named the “Best Restaurant in Carmel Valley“ in 2018, or try the Cubhouse Grill, or the River Ranch Café.
After filling your days with all that Carmel Valley Ranch has to offer, settle in to a beautiful suite offering 1 to 4 bedrooms and even an outdoor tub.
