TripAdvisor® Traveler Reviews
Not what was promised
I dont usually write reviews but this one deserves to be told. Went with great expectations as it was recommended by a family friend who has been there twice. Nothing was as it seems. Room not ready...
Beautiful place with so many activities! We loved the service, food , activity, location, and all. Our room had a gorgeous view of the valley and a very nice fire place. We would go again any time...
Member and resident on the property
We have been members at Carmel Valley Ranch for about 10 years and watched it evolve. We love dinners at Valley Kitchen where all the wait staff is friendly and attentive and the food fresh and yummy...
