Love the location, near Carmel and Point Lobos. Along with the friendly staff, amazing food and views I recommend anyone wanting to disconnect and enjoy nature with all the creature comforts of a Hyatt property

Stunning Property
Reviewed 4 days ago

Beautiful property, quiet, great restaurants- you will immediately unwind! The property is very close to downtown Carmel. Many fabulous restaurants. State parks for hiking everywhere. Drive out to the little town in Carmel Valley- MANY wine tasting rooms!

Luxury at the coast

This is a "time share" property. recently purchased by Marriott. After your stay you will be aggressively marketed. But, the property is stunning!!!! Suites are dated but comfortable. Staff could not be better.

Bad attitudes of porter & concierge
Reviewed 5 days ago

Stayed in ocean view 504 suite. First upon checking in I had an argument with porter as he wanted me to help bring my bags to room. All this happened when I had wanted to enjoy my welcome drink at the sunset lounge. Secondly as my daughter seek for concierge help to resolve the porter issue, she was rudely told off by the two ladies at concierge that they were busy. Later we got the response that it was hotel’s standard procedure to help bring bags to room. What is wrong with Hyatt’s premium property? Don’t ever stay in this Hyatt property! I am a lifetime globalist of Hyatt loyalty program where I spent 2-3 months in Hyatt properties. I know what I am talking about.

Very nicely placed resort, no more than 20 minutes from any and all activities. Whale watching, Aquarium at Monterey, 17 mile bike ride around Pebble Beach. One mile from State Park with great hiking to beach and trails. Less than half hour from Monterey Airport. Excellent, friendly helpful staff, knowledgeable about the area. Already talking about return visit next fall.
