Beautiful property and gardens , well maintained. Loved the free breakfast , the view of the breakfast terrace, proximity to the beach.
The hotel was charming with a cozy fire in the lobby fireplace. The champagne breakfast included in the room rate was fantastic. The staff were helpful and polite, even offering and serving us tea in the lobby late in the evening.
Our room was situated directly off the front lobby. It was extremely cold when we arrived on 12/31. The baseboard heat did not warm the room. We were given a space heater which did the trick but also made a fair amount of noise. The room was large but dark, with few windows. Nothing like the rooms pictured on the website. My regret is that I did not ask for a different room but we were told on check in that the hotel was fully booked. Try to avoid room 200! It was not worth the high price we paid.
This is a charming old hotel. A few blocks from the main street. We only stayed one night on New Years Eve. The staff were great , very friendly and helpful. would have loved to stay longer.
Best property Best gardens Best breakfast included Proximity to beach and town Beautiful
Construction outside window No TV working but took 1/5 of bill off
Close to beach and main street. Nice rooms and the hotel bar.
Really expensive and availability.
Fantastic location, great staff, excellent free champagne brunch, fair price, relaxing atmosphere, outdoor pool, manicured grounds..we travel alot and if we return to Carmel I would stay no where else
these 3 points are not negatives but travelers should be aware... there is only street parking albeit free but even with a full hotel we had no problems over a 5 day stay..there is no elevator but there are rooms on the ground floor, there is no full service restaurant but 2 blocks away on Ocean Avenue there must be 50 restaurants and with the free shuttle provided by La Playa you don't even have to walk home after a great meal
Location, welcome glass of champagne, great staff, wine and cheese, milk and cookies, fabulous champagne breakfast, shuttle service--LOVED everything !!!!!
Can not think of one thing we didn't love !!!
Outstanding staff. Beautiful property within walking distance of downtown and the beach
Rack rate is ridiculously expensive
The breakfast was the best we had in our trip, very fresh and a great choice of quality food, the staff were friendly and helpful, the building and gardens beautiful,with resident humming birds a bonus.
Our room, one of the less expensive ones, was rather small and the lack of AC was a surprise.
All the staff members were extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfasts were fresh and plentiful. The hotel was quiet while we were there but we were told it is normally much busier. In a quiet position 5 minutes walk from shops and restaurants. Suited our needs very well.
Minor issues - bathroom window wouldn't close properly so couldn't be locked. Didn't worry us much, we still felt secure.
What was there not to like?fabulous staff, gorgeous sea view room, great location,lovely breakfast,champagne on arrival but most of all the wonderful Jovann who was so helpful during our stay.. Taxing us,booking restaurants so pleasant a guy.
Champagne on arrival Well-appointed rooms Excellent shuttle service into town Helpful, friendly staff Beautiful grounds and location Very clean Delicious breakfast
Bar very expensive and closed very early Other clientele rather snobby!
Nice view and location, elegant older facility. The breakfast included with the room was fantastic and appealed to all diets and appetites.
The bathroom was small, cramped and poorly designed. At least we didn't spend a lot of time there.
Very efficient and friendly staff. Location is superb.
Room overlooked main entrance. Noisy on Friday night. I had asked for a quiet room. The room rate of over $500 was excessive. No safe in room.
couldn't stay long enuf.
Well run comfortable hotel with very helpful staff and good ameneties..
Air conditioning in bedrooms would be an added benefit although there was often a soft sea breeze to help air circulation.
Room was tiny and bed short.
We thought the price for the room was too high by $150.00
The bed was wonderful. The staff very welcoming and friendly
The views, bed comfort, cleanliness, breakfast included
Room was promised 1hour, 40 minutes before actually available. We were awakened by work being done above our room @7:00 a.m.. There was no safe in the room for valuables
Excellent location with good on street parking. Staff very attentive.
Bar menu was very small. It was tough to find a quick bite.
The staff at registration was very efficient polite and friendly. The breakfast service menu was terrific and the food very tasteful. We particularly liked the wine tasting, and the landscaped beauty of the hotel
Lovely grounds with flowers everywhere, delicious food from the bar (had the bruschetta twice, good breakfast, awesome pool area, and very friendly staff. Stayed in the least expensive room and it was great. We walked to the beach and to town, we jogged on Scenic Drive, and didn't use the car for our entire 3 day stay!
I liked everything!
