Famous for its four extraordinary golf courses (that have hosted the US Open five times) as well as incredible facilities and settings.
Pebble Beach Resort comprises three different hotels; The Lodge at Pebble Beach, The Inn at Spanish Bay and Casa Palmero at Pebble Beach, plus a huge arrange of superb restaurants and other facilities.
The intimate Mediterranean-style estate at Casa Palmero has 24 private rooms and suites, each with wood-burning fireplaces, luxurious oversized soaking tubs and king size beds. This is our number one choice, designed with seclusion in mind. It is just steps away from the spa and walking distance from the Lodge with an array of restaurants.
The Lodge has 161 guest rooms and is more traditional. From the patio or balcony guests can enjoy stunning views of flowering gardens, oceanfront fairways or magical sunsets over Carmel Bay.
Finally tucked between Del Monte Forest and the Pacific Ocean, The Inn at Spanish Bay offers luxurious 269 guest rooms and suites with a contemporary feel. However it is quite separate from a lot of the facilities as well as the other two hotels.
There is a huge array of restaurants at Pebble Beach from upmarket dining experience to casual America sports bars. The Inn at Spanish Bay offers traditional Italian, Hawaiian, typical comfort food in a lively sports-bar, a cosy fireside lounge with televised sporting events and hearty appetisers. The Lodge has a fresh sea food grill, an excellent steak house with a selection of draft and bottled beers and vintage wines, a wood roasted specialities restaurant, a café with hearty home style food and finally the Terrace Lounge, shaking up great cocktails with a breathtaking view. Also at Pebble Resort there is the Spyglass Hill Grill for causal dining, Del Monte Bar & Grill and a gourmet deli and wine shop.
Facilities at The Pebble Resort include, of course, the four superb golf courses but the Lodge also has a beach and tennis club with an impressive fitness centre, heated outdoor swimming pool with Whirlpool spa and finally a terrific tennis centre. As The Inn at Spanish Bay is a little isolated, it has its own club with fitness facilities and tennis pavilion. Check out the famous 17-mile drive that runs through Pacific Grove to Pebble Beach as well as Equestrian Centre and the beautiful costal surroundings.
