We spent a couple of days in this hotel. The view was very nice and we enjoyed very much the fire place which was always ready to use. Our room was a sort of cabin with two floors, which was pleasant. Everything in the room is old and need refurbishing, but overall we liked the room and got used to...

The photos on the web site of a balcony with two chairs overlooking the ocean was nothing I experienced. I tried to upgrade and was willing to pay whatever necessary. However, I was placed in a room next to the driveway, where every headlight of incoming traffic lit up my room. Of course, the sound of traffic made the ocean...

The Hyatt Carmel at Highlands,CA is a unique hotel on the cliffs overlooking Hwy 1 and the ocean. Depending on the height of your room you may have a great ocean view. Do elect for the top level of the 3 levels if you opt for a king ocean view. The view will be better and the noise less I...

The incredible views are worth the high price. Rooms felt a bit worn. Maintenance could be improved as an example the TV was not connected properly. Fireplace was a nice touch. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, especially the bell staff. Restaurant and bar staff could use more training though. Not as luxurious as I expected but more of...

This hotel has the most stunning views overlooking the Pacific Ocean! I found myself just staring out at the ocean from my balcony. I ate a delicious breakfast on a heated balcony overlooking another gorgeous view! The rooms are cozy with plush beds and a fireplace in the room. This was actually a business trip - but I would definitely...

We stayed for one week in a timeshare unit. Great location on an hillside - provides a spectacular view of the ocean. Because of the location, there are lots of stairs - between units, grounds and in our two story unit. A wheelchair would have some challenges navigating the grounds. Check-in was friendly, staff very accommodating - front desk appears...

My husband and I really enjoyed staying at the Hyatt Carmel Highlands. It is a very unique hotel. If you cannot climb stairs, then this might not suit you. This hotel is perched cliffside above the Pacific. The view from our room was great. We loved having a fire in the fireplace at night. It was clean and homey. The...

Breath taking views from the dining and living rooms. Very friendly staff. Restaurant was very good but pricey. The view made up for the price. The ocean view king room was small with no comfortable chair to sit in. Either you relaxed on the bed or used the desk chair. The carpets were stained. I guess you pay for the...
