Carmel Valley Ranch is a wonderful destination with kids. The one-bedroom suite accommodations are perfect for families as there is a back bedroom plus a sofa bed in the living room so parents get a bit of privacy. Onsite amenities are numerous including the River Ranch area that is perfect for children and includes a swimming pool, hot tub, a toddler pool with a water spray play area, tree swings, bocce ball, basketball courts and lots of grass. There is also a beautiful infinity hot tub and more adult-oriented pool adjacent to the lobby of the hotel. Golf facilities are first rate and feature a natural grass driving range. The primary onsite restaurant is delicious, resort casual, and has an amazing glass wall wine cellar with an extensive selection. After dinner, families can gather around the fire pits for s’mores. Located just 20 or so minutes from many of the Monterey Peninsula’s main attractions, Carmel Valley Ranch is resort that is relaxing for all ages and interests — we’ll be back with our kids!
