Had a wonderful time, staff, spa, and restaurants were great. They have a lot of trails you can hike, from moderate to low impact. You will enjoy this resort. The kids area is perfect for the family. We will be coming back soon.

Excellent Property! Relaxed, and not stuffy. Nice Family atmosphere. Lots of activities, golf, tennis, plus many things to do for families with younger children. Workouts, exercising, and Spa available. Or just take it easy and read a book on the deck.

Carmel Valley Ranch is an amazing property, one that I would highly recommend to anyone looking for an incredible getaway destination for leisure or a one of a kind property for a wedding, corporate event or social event. We stayed onsite for three days, two nights and experienced amazing customer service, fantastic food & beverage, and comfortable accommodations. The staff was extremely accommodating and helpful, especially Dana, Senior Catering Sales Manager - she was fantastic to work with, accommodating every request with grace and a smile on her face. I look forward to my next trip to Carmel Valley Ranch and enjoying all the property has to offer - the pool, spa, a full gym, tennis courts, an organic garden with honey bees, chickens, and goats, hiking trails, and much much more.

From the get go out experience at the Carmel Valley Ranch was amazing. The Staff were helpful at every turn and were knowledgable regarding their job roles. The room we stayed in was idyllic, just sitting on the porch looking out at the scenery was therapeutic. The food was amazing, delightful and I definitely recommend the scallops best I have ever had. Overall it was a vacation of perfection at its finest.

Carmel Valley Ranch is absolutely beautiful! My husband and I have lived in Carmel for years - and just discovered this resort. I was blown away by the beauty and the amazing feel of the property. The staff are second to none. Debora Mallouk is a true hospitality professional. When we met with her to tour the property, she made us feel like we were the only people there. She answered all of our questions and really paid attention to our interests and made sure that we knew everything the property has to offer our family. We joined right away and are ecstatic that we get to spend the rest of our lives enjoying the beauty of the resort and feeling like we’re on vacation every day of our lives! Thank you Debora and Carmel Valley Ranch!
