Review Summary


Pros

Cons

  • No elevators, and grounds can be difficult to navigate
  • Car required for visiting off-site attractions, shops and restaurants
  • Wi-Fi for a fee

Bottom Line

The 144-room cliff-side Hyatt Carmel Highlands offers awe-inspired views unrivaled anywhere else around Monterey and Carmel -- some could even argue the entire West Coast. Accommodations are seemingly as roomy as the stunning ocean views they offer, most complete with working fireplaces and stocked with simple yet modern amenities. The on-site restaurants serve meals that rival the scenery, and the outdoor fire pit is good for relaxing and taking in healthy doses of sea breeze after a day of kayaking (you can rent kayaks on-site).

Situated on the cliffs of the gorgeous Carmel Highlands overlooking the Pacific Ocean

Map of Hyatt Carmel Highlands

The Hyatt Carmel Highlands is located in one of the most picturesque locales in California, right on the seaside cliffs in Carmel Highlands. Cars are an absolute necessity here if you're planning on leaving the hotel.

Carmel Highlands is an unincorporated community located south of Carmel proper and north of Big Sur. The area is home to some of the most epic ocean views on the west coast. It's no wonder celebrities flock to build homes right on the dramatic coastal cliffs. Getting to restaurants, shopping or golfing requires driving 10 minutes north to Carmel proper.
