they have simply become a noisy mega resort! Looks like the old resort we knew and loved is gone and in its place is a "conference/wedding party zone". The peace and tranquility is shot. So disappointed.

Family friendly resort style hotel just a couple hours from the San Francisco Bay Area. Our young kids enjoyed the pool, horses, tree swing, hiking trails, and the garden. Food was also good, especially enjoyed the huevos rancheros for breakfast.

One of the best properties I've stayed with. A beautiful location. Rooms were fantastic. Staff was outstanding. Great golf. Three outdoor pools. Several outdoor fire pits. Close to Pebble Beach Golf and Cannery Row in Monterey.

They have the veneer of service- pricey add ons, but the day-to day experience is trying. For example, with young kids, we order room service. Room service...

Our family spent a weekend there, and we were surprised to see there was so much to do. They have the standard swimming pool and golf course as you would expect at a resort, but they also have tons of activities for kids. There's also hiking, biking, bird watching and bee keeping too! We booked a suite, which was newly...

We decided to stay 1 night at the Ranch during a recent visit to the Monterey-Carmel area. The property is vast and well maintained and all rooms are suites with huge bathrooms and comfortable beds and sitting areas. Ours had balconies with a view of the grounds / bluff. They charge a resort fee for providing shuttle service within the...
