Indulge yourself. Hyatt Carmel Highlands is a picturesque retreat overlooking the Big Sur coast with epic views of the Pacific Ocean, and a stunning natural environment made even more special by our impeccable staff. Our Carmel by-the-Sea hotel is an oceanfront retreat that seamlessly blends the amenities of a large hotel with the refined charm of a boutique hideaway. Dine at the award-winning California Market at Pacific's Edge restaurant. After a morning of yoga, take a dip in our heated outdoor pool or unwind with a relaxing spa experience. If it's outdoor activity you crave, we offer mountain bike rentals and maps for hikes, jogs and bike rides around the stunning Carmel area. Let the Les Clefs d'Or Concierge arrange a day trip to explore Big Sur or a round at legendary Pebble Beach. Host an intimate sunset wedding ceremony or intimate reception on our redwood deck. Feel inspired by the breathtaking vistas that surround our Carmel hotel. Your experience is limited only by your imagination.

Location is convenient to visiting Carmel and Big Sur. The rooms are small and need updating. The fireplaces require actually building a fire instead of flipping a switch. Fantastic views from bar and dining room. Staff are super attentive.

There is no view better than this - anywhere. Enjoy the hillside rooms and the awesome main building, restaurant and bar. This is what un-winding is all about. Gorgeous views of the Pacific and the coast line.

Our room was like a townhouse. Full bath upstairs and down. Wood burning fireplace. Very clean. Kitchenette with everything you needed. Friendly staff, beautiful grounds, great stay! Not like staying at a hotel, but more like having your own vacation rental.

For a facility that is nestled among redwoods and along a wild coastal shore, the hotel failed to provide the opportunity to guests to connect directly with the natural beauty. You are basically imprisoned on an island of stone, with admittedly gorgeous views, but forget about

Response from HyattHighlands, Manager at Hyatt Residence Club Carmel, Highlands Inn

Hello MidasLetter, Thank you for your feedback. We are proud of the resort location and work hard to keep the property in tune with the Carmel Highlands environment. All the property surrounding the resort is privately owned and as such we are limited to what we can connect to physically. Many owners and guests enjoy checking out the bikes and taking them to nearby Point Lobos or other areas that are more conducive to hiking and biking. There are so many trails, parks and outdoor areas to explore in this region. We also have a nature trail on property that allows visitors to view native plants and succulents. I apologize that the resort location did not meet your needs and hopefully you will return in the future. Again thank you for your comments.

Our resort stay here was disappointing. As a resort, it falls far short of the experiences we've come to know and expect at the other Hyatt Residence Club properties where we've stayed. In most instances, guests come here to enjoy the tourist attractions in the area: Big Sur,

Does the ocean view townhouse spa suite have a fireplace in the bedroom?
We didn't even get the townhouse, but we did get a fireplace and a view by booking one of the basic rooms. I did tell them we were celebrating a special event and I am a Hyatt Member (through work) which allowed me an upgrade without having to ask for it, if the property had the availability. They went above and beyond to meet our needs. I was blown away! The entire property was beautiful.

Do you still offer wedding packages?
Hi! Does anyone know the last time the rooms were renovated?
Must be more than 10 years ago or only a bit paint and new carpets. We found the rooms massivly overpriced.

The no, not all the rooms have an ocean view. He deafly need to ask about that when you're making your reservation.

"Rooms are small. We had fantastic ocean view from our balcony. "
"Skip the Resort; book a hotel room nearby and enjoy the spectacular California coast and coastal cities."
"If you stay, make absolutely certain you stay in a 2-story suite or one of the timeshare rooms. The other rooms are a gamble."
"Book the ocean view room, the views are unbeatable"
"Ask for a ocean view when booking."
