Shelly and Yuri helped us plan the wedding of our dreams. We are so grateful for their incredible attention to all the little details. Shelly went above and beyond the call of duty for us, helping us set up flowers for the ceremony and reception, being on call for all of our questions even after hours, making our out-of-town guests feel completely at home, playing the 'best man' and 'maid of honor' for our groom and bridal prep (we didn't have a wedding party, so Shelly really stepped in to help!), finding us a last minute pianist when our evening's music plans didn't work out -- you name it, they made it happen. Just absolutely perfect, in every way. We felt like we were staying with extended family. Highly, highly, highly recommend the Hyatt Carmel Highlands and their wonderful staff. :)Sent on 05/16/2016

Very professional, quick responses, highly recommended
Gabi and Emily are very professional and help with our wedding a lot. They helped us with menu tasting, room upgrade, vender orders and setup. Their questionnaire is well organized and go through each details. Gabi was very patient and helped us on guest meals and even kids meal changes one week before wedding. Emily helped us with rehearsal one day before the wedding and opened the dressing room for us early in the morning. Hyatt Carmel's customer service is excellent. We are impressed by the beautiful view and friendly staffs.Sent on 08/24/2019

The wedding of my dreams
I don’t know where to begin with this review. I planned my wedding sight unseen from Illinois. From my first inquiry to the last glass of wine, my wedding was more beautiful and classy than I could have ever imagined. Gabriella was incredibly responsive and was genuinely excited to respond with each petty email I bugged her with. The pictures do not do this venue justice. (And look how beautiful the pictures are). The level of service we received during our small reception was more than I could have asked for. We were spoiled and doted on. What a perfect place. We’ll be returning for our anniversaries!!!Sent on 04/15/2019
Hyatt Carmel Highlands's reply:Katherine, thank you so very much for allowing us to be apart of your special day! It was such an honor to become a staple in your and Craig's story. We look forward to seeing you next March to celebrate your first wedding anniversary!!
