Excellent Location

We stayed here a couple years ago for my wife's babymoon. The property is HUGE. Upon entering the gates, they ask for your name to match up with the reservation. They actually give you map and show you where you need to go. Checking in was a breeze, and they even have staff in golf carts to escort you where your room is located. If I have one regret, its that I didn't bring our labrador to enjoy this place with us. There are hiking trails all over the place, and truly a great place to get away from the hussle and bussle of the outside world. I would love to stay here again!

Dining inside the resort is a bit pricey, and I would say not worth the price.

Great getaway location

Loved this place, it was very relaxing. The room was very comfortable. If you are looking to get away to an isolated, quiet place, this is it. There are lots of activities kids can attend. If you want to dine at their restaurant make sure you have a reservation in advance, other option is in room dining.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

Monterey's night life goes past Carmel, so if it's past 10pm and you're hungry, head for Monterey.

Dinnimg was fantastic at both the golf course and the club house. 12 miles to Monterey Cannery Row dinning check out the Sardine Factor on Wave street. It was very resonable for the quality of food.

Quiet,peaceful surroundings

We had a handicapped room which worked very well for us. We enjoyed the 2 rooms(bedroom and sitting room) Although it is a golf resort we enjoyed the quietness, greenery, and the deer outside our front door! The staff were very helpful and gave great information for the different sites we wanted to see. Most attractions were a good drive from the place. One downside for the handicapped room was the extended walk from our car to the room.
