We have been a huge fan of La Playa for many years. It’s always been our first choice of places to stay when we travel to Carmel. We love the overall atmosphere, the provided amenities and location near the beach.
Carmel's only hotel on the beach. A classic beauty which has been around forever it seems. Never met a guest who didn't enjoy it. Most business is from repeat customers. That tells you something, doesn't it. La Playa is equated with Carmel and vice-a-versa.
Great hotel with enough public space to sponsor good sized events and activities. Attentive staff in a wonderful location. Easy walk to the beach and to anywhere in the town of Carmel. Absolutely a terrific getaway location.
The hotel is lovely, the property is beautiful , the service is wonderful, great location to the town and water-the chocolate cookies are the best, my only complaint is our room was small but our bathroom was ridiculously small.
Beautiful grounds. Service is great. Breakfast is exceptional. Rooms are nice. Not cheap but considering the beautiful area in Carmel it is reasonable priced. I would recommend for a romantic getaway.
"Oceanview with magnificent sunset. But head down to the beach just 2 blocks away"
"We had one of the better rooms, little privacy,single pane cold steel frame wind window, noisey mini fridge all night, tiny bathroom,"
"Rooms are small so if you can afford a suite for a longer stay , that would be the way to go."
"None of the rooms have any sound proofing but the front of the hotel is the worst."
"A suite by the pool is very special!"
