Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel is understated, classy, friendly, and super comfortable .We had a beautiful king sized suite overlooking the lawn and close to the pool and hot tub. The bed was amazing and the room decorated perfectly. The dinner at Lucia was delicious, as was the wine. A fabulous, way-too-brief stay!

This property is located in a valley with natural beauty all around. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating. Located not far from downtown Carmel as well as several wineries, you will find plenty to do at a nice relaxed pace. Pool, spa and other things to keep you happy on property as well. You will not be disappointed...

I stayed at Bernardus recently for a girls getaway on a recommendation from my sister. We stayed 3 nights. We flew in to SFO and enjoyed the drive down. The location is secluded enough to feel like a delightful secret but a quick drive to Monterey or Carmel by the Sea. We spent one morning hiking at Point Lobos Nature...

Road trip on the California coast. Chose this lodge for location, food and newly renovated rooms. Immaculate well appointed Villa - will look amazing when plantings mature. Friendly staff, food and wine we enjoyed - really relaxed bar, outdoor areas and attentive staff. I did think there would have been a stronger emphasis on local produce - certainly that was...

My family and I took a central California road trip this past October. While it was a great trip the Bernardus was the highlight. The lodge is gorgeous, the rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. There were only a few areas where I think the Bernardus could improve: 1) Our room had the worst window covering, it looked like...
