We arrived in Big Sur with several thoughts in mind - to experience several adventures, to experience the energy of Big Sur and relax. All that and more is possible at Post Ranch Inn. The rooms are simply amazing - we stayed in 127 which is partially shaded but has an amazing view of the ocean and coast. The staff...

Our 2 night stay at Post Ranch Inn was simply perfect. The drive up to Big Sur was tough (we were coming from the south), with windy roads, slow drivers and road construction. However, once you arrive, all the tension melts away. The staff were all pleasant and efficient and treated us like we were the only guests staying there....

This property, its location, its amenities, and its service, is impeccable. We spent 3 nights here during our honeymoon, and despite not being massively lucky with the weather (there was a shedload of cloud and we had an Ocean Room, not ideal), we left feeling rejuvenated, relaxed, and feeling as we had experienced something special. The rooms themselves are spacious,...

We got married here on the deck of our room (just the two of us and a wedding official and photographer) and spent our honeymoon here. It was unimaginably wonderful. Foremost, the property is amazing. We stayed in the lower Pacific room overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It felt like we were in the clouds. The amenities attached to the room...

Dear friend, It was an honor you selected the Ranch to host your wedding. The family of staff and I sincerely appreciate all of your kind words and are thrilled we were able to make your special occasion that much more memorable. It was a joy to hear words like ‘amazing’, ‘exceptional’, and ‘responsible’ when describing the property and our...

My husband and I came here for our first alone trip without our son. We were really excited to relax and enjoy beautiful Big Sur. I grew up going to a family cabin near by and was really excited to try this hotel. There were some very good parts to our stay but over all I was not so impressed....

We stayed for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon. Given the cost of the rooms, this was our two nights of luxury and indulgence as it was more expensive than all our other accommodation out together. Parts of the stay were amazing (fire places in rooms, spa, infinity pool, food, star gazing, room facilities) BUT we found mice in...

We made a WEST USA roadtrip at the end of 2011 but only write our reviews right now. We couldn't skip the Post Ranch Inn as it's still one of the best memories we have from this trip. From the entrance gate, you understand that this is a truly special place. The concept is similar to the one we have...

The Post Ranch Inn combines first-class service with awe-inspiring views. Upon arrival we had a great chat with Jorge, who did our check in. Our bags were put into a Lexus and our driver took us on a tour of the property. From that point we knew this would be an unforgettable experience. We stayed in a Fredricks room, facing...

After a long journey dealing with holiday traffic we finally turned into the Post Ranch Inn's drive way. From that moment on there was just no stress while we were at Post Ranch.
