We have enjoyed Post Ranch as a couple and with friends for over 20 years. This trip to Post was the best yet. Pacific Coast Highway to the north and south effectively is closed leaving Big Sur closed off to through traffic. you can take the Post Ranch helicopter directly to the ranch. We departed Monterey Airport and enjoyed amazing coast line views (apx 20 minutes) and for the first time landed on the Post Ranch property. Picked up by staff and dropped directly in to our fantastic suite was the ultimate VIP exprerience. Post has added a few new features over the last few years- A beautiful art gallery, a first class gym, and new executive chef Elizabeth Murray. Food at Post is always excellent but this time our air/room and food package covered all meals. Chef Elizabeth is a master at full flavored cuisine that still remains light and fresh. She raises the bar on vegetarian dishes too. We stayed 3 nights enjoyed all the beauty at the ranch especially the green landscapes created from winter rains. Don't miss this special time to visit Post Ranch and The Big Sur area. No traffic means Big Sur of old and Post Ranch makes it even better.

This review is long overdue. The Post Ranch Inn is everything you would ever want in a serene, romantic getaway. We stayed here in November 2015 and it was amazing. We were upgraded to a treehouse room upon arrival and this large but cozy little place is where we cocooned for two luxurious days. Everything about this place - from the views and breakfast every morning at Sierra Mar was an impeccable way to start the day, the infinity hot tubs, the door to door Lexus service to dinner - made the entire stay impeccable. No detail or service was left to chance. But, there was no was there if you needed and wanted. Can't wait to go back.

Best Anniversary dinner ever! My husband planned a romantic dinner for our 25th anniversary! It was spectacular! The view was breathtaking! We were seated at a window and witnessed the most amazing sunset I'd ever seen! And living in the Monterey area we see many beautiful sunsets! The dinner was so delicious and melted in our mouths! The staff were amazing and very attentive! It was a little pricey but well worth the experience! If you want to feel like you are sitting at the edge of the world you need to experience the Post Ranch Inn dinner! Lunch is pretty amazing too!

I made a hotel reservation in July 2016 for the beginning of May 2017. Early this year Big Sur suffered horrible mud slides and part of HWY 1 is closed. I received an email from Post Ranch Inn in February saying they were closed and hoped to reopen in April. Great. I have heard nothing since. My trip is rapidly approaching and I emailed them to inquire about the status of the resort reopening and my reservation (included dates and reservation #). Within minutes I received a response that was geared towards someone who was inquiring about making a new reservation. They gave existing room availability, said they hope to be open by April 20, and that the only way into the resort was to pay $250 per person to helicopter in. This is all news to me, since they have never sent me a follow up to the original February email. I immediately emailed back saying I wished to cancel my reservation since I do not want to pay to helicopter to the hotel. I followed up my email with several phone calls, leaving messages. Nothing. Not a word back. I paid a one night room deposit that I need refunded. They have left me with no choice but to file a complaint with Amex. What a nightmare. I have always wanted to stay at Post Ranch Inn, and was looking forward to our trip, but now I just want my money back.
