Wow. Wife and I with another couple we golf with got away for two days of golf. We were amazed at how well the course is kept up and absolutely love the layout. Not overly long but the greens are the equalizer. Women's tees are up and this is my wife's favorite course now. From the pro shop to the waiters to checkout, the employees were so helpful and attentive. We will absolutely be back next year with more friends. Willie

If it wasn’t for the purchased Groupon, not sure I’d pay the prices for this weekend getaway. Mainly decided to stay here for the two days of golf. Facilities for golf and room were decent but breakfast was a disappointment. Food was cold and expensive. $6 for a cup of cold coffee is way too high priced.

The hotel and staff are very accommodating and friendly. We were here for my husbands business and thoroughly enjoyed the grounds and wish we would have had more time to enjoy more of the amenities. Thanks

We own a house in Carmel Valley Ranch and are members of the pool and fitness club called River Ranch. It has had some growing pains but I want to say what a beautiful property this is now and the staff has become so friendly and helpful. I swim daily and there are 2 pools to choose from (one a lap pool kept at 81 degrees and the family pool kept about 84 degrees). I use the warmer pool and swim before the kids arrive but also love the adult pool when the weather is warmer. Louie (and other staff) have been keeping the pool very clean and is so considerate of us swimmers. The workout room is updated, large and very clean. There are yoga and strengthening classes throughout the day, as well as spin classes. The front desk staff is so nice and friendly and tries to keep us all happy (Maria Lise, Denise, Andrew and many others). We can walk to the lodge for dinner and look out over the beautiful vineyards. The steaks are yummy! There are some hikes around the property, a garden you can tour, horseback riding (seasonal), golf, or just lounging around the pool. It’s a special place to live and play and very accessible for all. Our son was married on the property and the staff did a superb job. Everything was perfect! The whole resort has been updated and the staff seems to be trained to make everyone have a wonderful experience. I would certainly stay here if I didn’t already live here!

My boyfriend and I come here as often as we can. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are well-appointed and spacious, the food is excellent, and the staff is exceptional! It’s the perfect place to spend a relaxing weekend. We love to sit poolside and just relax. Every time we are here Jacob greets us and provides us with excellent service. He is very attentive, professional, and friendly. Most definitely recommend visiting the ranch!
