Why We Like This Place
Just two blocks from Carmel’s beaches, La Playa remains one of the loveliest and most inviting places we’ve had the pleasure to write about. The entire setting is lush and private, with brick patios, a fountain, manicured lawns and climbing bougainvillea.Accommodations include tasteful rooms and suites, most with garden or ocean views. Honeymooners prefer to reserve one of the 5 charming and unique cottages, with their more private garden milieu even closer to the beach. (Sunset strolls recommended.)
The hotel is a refreshing destination, where classic furnishings, French doors and magnificent views are standard amenities. We can’t help but love this place. And if you have your honeymoon here, we’re sure you will, too.
