Great stay at Carmel Valley Ranch, it was raining but that didn't put a damper on our stay as the shuttles were always available. We did get some chicken chat & goat time in, as well the kids LOVED the kids night activities.

Good 6.0
Overpriced rooms / Gorgeous grounds
Grounds are a 10 and service is great as well. Room was overpriced for what you actually get. It would have been nice to have a kitchenette but the suite we booked which was over $900 a night had heavily obstructed views and no way to heat food for our little ones. Upon check-out they told me that they can in some instances bring a microwave. It was a good experience but I don’t suspect we will come back unless the highlands is sold out.
