Carmel by the Sea

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A lovely apartment block. Rooms are very large and suitable for family. Our apartment was three bedrooms that could sleep 7 people. It was quite windy on the balcony though. Close to Pacific Square and kids playgrounds. One plus was an indoor swimming pool. If booking ask for a beach facing apartment

Quiet area, spent 4 nights, rooms were lovely & clean., although found the queen bed to be a little hard. Walking distance to shops, cafes & restaurants. Park across the road convenient for kids to play and an easy walk to the beach. Staff helpful & obliging. Would return another time.

We loved our stay in a north east facing 2 Bedroom apartment on the 12th floor with superb ocean views from every room and large balcony, we saw several whales too! 🐳 We were delighted with our apartment (room 66) it was very spacious and comfortable for a family of four with everything you need and a nice spa bath too. It was very quiet and relaxing listening to the sound of the waves crashing. Staff were all very nice, a special mention and thank you to Emma for ensuring our reservation would accommodate all our needs and making sure our apartment booking wasn't changed to a different room as we have a son in a wheelchair with special needs. Thank you Emma our apartment and stay was perfect, much appreciated. Carmel by the sea is a beautiful building and the gardens are lovely. The pool is fabulous and is heated, the water temperature was perfect to swim day or evening. We would love to stay again 😀

Brilliant location as literally a block from the beach across parklands. Pacific Fair and Oasis shopping center; Broadbeach Mall; tram terminus all within easy walking distance. Things just work!; lifts, water pressure, pools, bbq, tv, a/c, Foxtel. Décor is dated along with minor water damage in bathrooms BUT things work! Staff friendly and were very helpful when asked. Will be returning as a much happier holiday compared to our last experience.

Luxurious accomodation located across the road from Broadbeach. No need to get in the car again after you arrive. Everything you need is in walking distance. Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, Oasis Shopping Centre, Star Casino. The beach and Parkland is directly across the road. Tram is across the road in opposite direction. Plenty of restaurants and cafes. Indoor and Outdoor Pools + sauna,gym and spa. The only negative is that the rooms are not serviced but that didn't bother us. Reception is very inviting and the staff were pleasant and helpful.

Beautiful large room with amazing ocean views. The rooms were clean, spacious and the staff were very helpful. Nice walk to restaurants closeby. Close to Pacific Fair shopping centre and the Casino. My boys love playing soccer and they were able to go up the road to the school and kick the soccer ball in their nets and also plenty of room to kick the ball over in the park across the road. Very family friendly and will definitely be staying again!

We visit the town and walk by all the galleries and restaurants. This little town in the coast of California is only at 2 hr drive from San Francisco is a must see. To get here the best way is thought the 17 miles drive, where the scenery is outstanding, beautiful road along of golf courses and hugest mansion!

Beautiful little town . Filled with terrific restaurants , specialty shops and gorgeous beach . The weather was a pleasant surprise and our pleasure to find temperatures in the 70's and high 50's in the evenings.

This is our second stay here this year. The staff were unfailingly helpful to us and were a pleasure to deal with. The location is fantastic particularly if you have children, with parks, bike tracks and food within easy access. While rooms can be dated, they are still large and the Views are amazing. Would recommend and we will be back.

One of the most beautiful town in the world. Lovely beach to jog on and sunsets. Beautiful house scattered all around town with great art gallery shops and restaurant. You can Wal everywhere, every road holds a beautiful picture. Friendly people!
