Carmel Valley Ranch

Feature-packed valley resort

Set on 500 acres of the Carmel Valley, the, the Carmel Valley Ranch is a luxury resort focussed around the concept of play. From  an 18-hole championship golf course and nine tennis courts to a four acre sustainable vineyard with bee apiary, this resort has plenty for all. Splash around in the three resort swimming pools, let the kids learn and experience at the Ranch Hands Camp and finish each day with a freshly-prepared meal using locally-sourced ingredients, including from their own back garden.

Not what was promised

Lafayette, Louisiana

I don’t 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 when promised, staff members that did not understand any directions and added costs that was not discussed. Needless to say we won’t be back. Very disappointed ☹️

Beautiful gateway

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! Again and again.
