We couldn't have been more satisfied with our trip to Carmel and especially our stayat La Playa Carmel. The staff could not have been more helpful. The grounds are beautiful and the breakfast was delicious. We will definitely be returning to La Playa Carmel on our next visit.

Best place to stay in Carmel!

We lucked upon La Playa and were absolutely thrilled!! We and another couple travel around each year for our anniversaries and decided upon San Francisco and Carmel for this year. From the comfy rooms, the fun bar, delicious food, lovely pool to the great location!! And the staff did absolutely everything to make our trip memorable!! Definitely 2 thumbs up!

Love the grounds and room was nice. Unfortunately it’s not handicap friendly. Breakfast was wonderful cookies were great. We enjoyed the shuttle service and we didn’t have to drive and park and walk anywhere Michael the driver was wonderful.

La Playa has an exceptionally experienced staff and handled all aspects of my daughter's wedding in the PacificTerrace and Pacific Ballroom The ambiance of this charming hotel in beautiful Carmel by the Sea created a memorable time for those in attendance. Excellent service, delicious appetizers and dinner, including children's menu, table arrangement, bar set-up, DNA entertainment DJ Chris and personal event coordinator and assistant made the evening memorable. Working with Aurora Baltierra was a pleasure and her personal touches from beginning to end is greatly appreciated.

Magical weekend

Reviewed 13 january, 2022

Staying at La Playa Carmel is simply a magical experience. I feel pampered and special and happy when I stay here! My most recent stay was for a girls trip, and the hotel and it's location had everything my girlfriends and I needed: An amazing breakfast onsite; an amazing comfy, attractive bar onsite that serves delicious appetizers/dinners and fabulous cocktails; the ocean nearby for playing and hiking; shopping and other wonderful restaurants nearby. Truly a unique experience!
