How many of our fans have ever experienced a couples massage? Outside? At night? http://ow.ly/i/5WvuV

Fun Friday Fact: The deer don’t eat the lavender, but they love the clovers that grow between the rows!

Came in Dec and we were in the middle of a rain storm after many years of drought. We were surprised that we got upgraded and our package does not include the upgrade. The service of the staff were great. We have free shuttle to everywhere at the ranch (it is huge) and the shuttle goes straight to our front door. The food at the lodge (breakfast and dinner) and at the club house (breakfast) were great. I had the rib eye and my wife had the season sword fish which were perfect. The view was incredible. We saw deers also, so drive carefully, especially at night. It is hard to describe all the activities it has without going to the web site. Great place for families with kids, with pets, or just a romantic getaway.

This is my favorite hotel to stay at in the Carmel area. It is great for everyone from families to couples. The rooms are clean and spacious and spread across the 300+ acre hotel. If you get the chance to get up early, there is a yoga deck on the hillside you should check out for the sunrise yoga class.

I thought long and hard about what I wanted to say in this review. In the end, I am going to go with a 2 star review. For a Labor Day/ early birthday weekend away trip I was dead set on getting a massage. My boyfriend and I researched the many options in Monterey and Carmel. We went with Carmel Valley Ranch's in-house spa for our couples massage on August the 31st.. I inquired whether I could get a mimosa when at the spa. I was told by the very friendly spa staffer that I could get a mimosa before or after the massage at the pool area directly next door so she suggested I bring a swim suit to enjoy the pool in. Perfect! What a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. At least this is what I thought at the time I booked. The day of the massage was a beautiful sunny day- often rare on Labor Day on the coast. The massage was excellent and refreshing. I didn't mind paying the price for a day of luxury and relaxation. After the couples' massage, we went to enjoy the pool as suggested again by the spa staffer who assisted us. We went and found chairs at the pool. I immediately started looking around for a pool waiter to put in an order. (We had not eaten before the massage so we were both starving after our 90 minute massage.) A waiter made eye contact with me and then walked to our neighbor to take his drink order. So I waited patiently. Another 10 minutes pass in which the neighbor had been brought his drink order, and two couples have been seated and their drink orders taken. Ten more minutes pass by and we are starting to get irritated and more hungry. Three more couples in the mean time are seated and enjoying appetizers and drinks. I walk over to the waiter station after another ten minutes of no service and ask if I can have a menu. The young staffer said, "Of course!" I go back to my chair and proceed to pick out items that my boyfriend and I would like to eat. We wait another 15 minutes and NO ONE BOTHERS TO COME OVER. At this point I am beyond upset, insulted and famished. We pick up our belongings, return to the spa to change, and leave to spend our money elsewhere to have a nice late lunch. I will never book anything at this place again. Despite the amazing view and tranquil environment at the "adult pool" and excellent spa services- the trip was a complete waste of time and money. I went to have a great early birthday having a massage to relax and be calm and instead end up leaving angry and stressed out. The payment for the spa treatment was a TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY if it was just going to get reversed by rude and non-attentive pool waiters. I would suggest getting spa services elsewhere so you can actually enjoy yourself afterwards, like every other location I have had a massage at. Had I known their service was this poor, I would have not paid to have my massage done at a four star hotel to have two star service. I wish I could have asked for a refund right then and there.

We came here 21 years ago it has changed a lot but it is wonderful. Facilities are excellent as is accomodation. Because it is inland the sun was shining but we drove through cloud to get here from San Fransisco. The boys love the pool and the bball court. We will be sad to leave but will return!

We were looking forward to a very nice experience for New Years and found the Carmel Valley Ranch online. It looked great, but when we got to our *very expensive* luxury suite, we found cracked tiles in the bathroom, torn rugs in the living area, a partly melted TV in the bedroom. There was no remote for the bluray/dvd player, but we did have 3 remotes for the 2 TVs. Service was good, but the cleaning was not - the last night we were there, the maid service did not clean the bathroom well or not at all. To their credit, on check out when I mentioned the problems, they gave us a small credit (compared to the overall bill) and they had given us a nice bottle of champagne on check-in for our special occasion. I should specially mention the restaurant: The first evening meal was very tasty, but exceptionally salty. The breakfast was part of the room fees. It was okay, but got worse and worse.I didn't know you could have burned granola. We gave up eating there. The grounds are beautiful. We can't speak to the quality of the sports amenities, such as golf or tennis. We didn't stay there for that. I had a spa massage and the experience was very good. The massage therapist was professional, kind, effective and accommodated my special request for non-scented oil. Overall, it was a disappointment because we were hoping for more, but there were some bright spots.

It's amazing the turn around of this place... from the previous owners who built some slick out of place East Coast style resort that simply didn't fit with the valley. JDV has done a phenomenal job. Their pool deck and infinity spa are beautiful, the playful nature of the added elements like the swings are too much fun (you must do it while you are there.. a simple, storied, fun moment). Their gift shop is the best organized and stocked shop I have ever seen. They offer endless activities and options. I am no golfer, but meet at the clubhouse in the morning for the "bee keeping experience" - you get to learn about the lavender honey and bee projects they do on site, as well as dress up in bee keeping outfits and do a couple tastings. It was so much fun. The rooms are exceptional.. we had a hillside suite that stared out over Carmel Valley. It's the most beautiful place in the world... and we just took it in from our patio, or our huge and exceptionally comfortable bed (one of the best I have ever stayed in), warmed by our huge gas fireplace. It was room 309, and it was a fantastic place. Rates are steep. STEEP. The breakfasts were outstanding, the dinner was fantastic - the menu is concise, but the options are all delicious. The bartender is a classic - and kept making us some of the best drinks I have ever had - classics for me, fun stuff like pear martinis for wifey. I am looking at some of the drinks we ordered, and sparing you the nasty details, I can safely say we enjoyed ourselves. It's certainly a place to save up - but it's a true weekend away rather than those sloppy, half-assed "staycations" that just don't re-energize or rejuvenate like they should. I am starting to think you need 3 days, or it's not worth it. So my advice... 3 days, and call me in the morning.
