Good for kids, not for infants.

Pros: Rooms were nice an spacious. No complaints there.
I had arranged (with several advanced phone calls) to have a crib available for our arrival. The hotel had run out due to an unexpected number of "walk-ins." My requests had been overlooks for those without reservations. Could have brought my own but there was no communication from staff. It took several phone calls just to get a clarification of an expected late delivery of a crib. To their credit, they went out and bought more that day to fulfill the request. Regardless, my child had to skip his nap, which any parent of an infant knows is devastating. Poor communication and even worse management by their leadership Additionally, we ate about 5 meals at the restaurant. Almost every meal had a small mix-up or inconsistency in food quality. Not a huge deal, but for a hotel of this expected caliber, quite disappointing. The Napa Valley has many more higher quality resorts. I will remain a loyal visitor there.

Carmel Valley Ranch is pure heaven and Camp for Adults

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, peaceful, wildlife, every sport imaginable
My wife and I had 2 wonderful days of pampering. If you enjoyed Summer Camp as a kid, you will love.... Carmel Valley Ranch. An 18 hole golf course, 2 swimming pools, beautiful grounds for hiking, tons of wildlife, amazing food and lots more.

Lovely place to stay. Staff was excellent, grounds were beautiful. The bee tour was so much fun, and an experience not many places offer.

The grounds are beautiful, and it is high up enough to have fog for a couple hours then it clears off quickly. the rooms are large and roomy, and we enjoyed the fireplaces every night. They have a smore night by the pool which was a blast. Only complaint is that the service at the restaurant several times was pretty slow and non attentive. Other than than it was an awesome visit.

Birthday get away

OMG!! this place is great!! You can't ask for more. We got the massage package thru their site. The food is a little pricey, but you never left feeling disappointed. They gave us a free room upgrade, but even the smaller room would've been fine. Want to make a good impression or just get a way!! Yes this is the place! :)

Great Experience

We stayed here 2 nights to celebrate an anniversary. We got the STAR treatement. Service was best in class. The room was HUGE. It had 2 fireplaces with real wood burning logs. They will pick you up and cart you anywhere around the property which is huge also. The view from our suite was amazing. The secret is to tell them ahead of time that it is a special occasion for you. You won't be disappointed. We did not try the restraunt or other recreation facilities, but Yes, there really are live deer walking around the ranch. Go for it. Enjoy.
