Everything about the three days we spent for our 20th anniversary was truly great!
While the price-point was a bit high for us, we felt it was well worth it and we plan to return. We played tennis every morning on well maintained courts, played lawn bocce ball in the evening with wine in-hand, and late night soaks in the hillside hot tub. In between we explored Carmel and other fun coastal sites. Nice restaurants nearby in the Valley and staff was super accommodating (shout-out to Tim, - a doorman, concierge, and friend all wrapped into one).

My husband and I had a perfect stay at Bernardus from start to finish. The premium Santa Lucia room had a breathtaking view of the property's central area, and we loved sitting on our patio to watch the sunset over the mountains each night. The room itself was impeccably decorated and included great amenities, especially the cozy fireplace, tasty snacks, the property's own wine, and a wonderful deep soaking tub. The service from the staff members we encountered was professional yet warm. The valets were always friendly and quick to offer directions. The food at Lucia, the on-site restaurant, was superb, and I would highly recommend enjoying any meal there.

I can't speak highly enough of the property - the service, room amenities, and ambiance at Bernardus all made for an unforgettable experience, so much so that we're already planning our next trip back. I would not hesitate to recommend Bernardus to anyone planning to stay in the Carmel Valley area.

We stayed at Bernardus for our 25th Anniversary, Bernardus was fantastic, the property is breathtaking and the accommodations were superb. We stayed in a one bedroom villa that was stunning with views of the mountains, highly recommend the villas. All staff were professional and polite, helpful in planning and directions to the area. Attention to detail was excellent. The pool and infinity spa were spotless and relaxing with poolside service. Extremely relaxing, great for couples. We dinned in the restaurant Lucia twice, outstanding locally sourced menu. Bernardus is without a doubt the top Carmel area lodging choice.

We got married at Bernardus in May 2018 and I continue to gush about how perfect it was. The staff, across the board, is the best group of individuals I have ever worked with. They truly made the weekend so special. We had wedding planners too, and we all agree Stacy and her team were so easy to work with, so loving and totally knowledgeable, flexible and enthusiastic. The facilities and rooms are simply perfect. They’ve done an incredible job combining comfort with high end class and style. The setting is totally magical. The food was delicious and every dish was yummier than the next. Impeccable execution for a large wedding. I literally could not have dreamed up a more perfect coming together of our wedding weekend. I can’t wait to go back again and again to Bernardus. This place is all warmth and love and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

We had a weekend stay at Bernardus Lodge....the property is stunning, the rooms are beautiful, the food is truly excellent and the STAFF IS PHENOMENAL. The concierge, the management, the servers....everyone is professional and caring. This is well worth the cost of the room to spend a few days in Carmel Valley. Spend some time at Point Lobos, walk around Carmel By The Sea, shop a little, rest a lot, hike, walk, play....you'll feel recharged.
