From arrival to departure, the staff attended to all our needs, whether some late night ice or additional hangars. Everyone had a smile. Our car was ready almost immediately even when we had not asked for it in advance. On arrival, we left the car with the attendant, and within 5 minutes everything was delivered to our room. On departure,...

We recently had the opportunity to split a stay in Carmel with a night here and another night at the Carmel Valley Ranch. A very dramatic difference in the two hotels with Bernardus the clear winner in my mind. This is a small boutique lodge that has a very luxurious feel. It simply seemed to be a very warm and...

Despite dreary rain and cool weather, our room was spacious, warm and inviting with a fireplace, very comfortable bed, and complimentary snacks and a bottle of Bernardus wine. The well equipped, large bathroom was spa-like with its own selection of amenities for tub and shower. infinity hot tub overlooking the valley, huge heated pool, and full spa services make this...

What a lovely place....rooms were great (may need a bit of freshening up)....but with the fireplace...and the balconies....and the views....all good. If you're golfing at Pebble Beach...it's a bit of a trip...but worth it. Not too far from Carmel either. Food was good...but only did breakfast. Nice pool...small work out room but modern.

The luxury Santa Lucia Room was not really worth the price. The room was large and I liked the fireplace since it was rainy and cold on our visit. However, the lighting design (especially the switching groups but also the harsh ceiling bulbs and piercing bedside lighting were poor choices). When I booked the room, the website asked me if...

We were looking for a last minute getaway for our Babymoon and searched and searched for places that would make us feel pampered, but wouldn't break the bank.
