Concierge.com's insider take:

Live to golf? You won't get closer to the game than at this grand 1927 Mediterranean-style villa: It sits right on the first fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links. The hotel's 24 rooms are in newer, two-story buildings with hidden doorways and soundproof walls, so you won't have to hear fellow enthusiasts shouting "Fore!" Casa Palmero is the most luxurious of Pebble Beach's three lodging options; it's more chic and sophisticated than the Lodge at Pebble Beach (where the bars are crowded with noisy golfers at the end of the day), and more intimate than the sprawling Inn at Spanish Bay. Here, downstairs rooms have private gardens with Jacuzzi pools; upstairs rooms have oversized window seats as big as twin beds. All have wood-burning fireplaces. The furnishings are predictably fancy/stuffy—lots of rich fabrics, plush carpets, and linens from England—but the bathrooms are supermodern, with rainfall showerheads in marble stalls and heated slate floors. The property has a 25-room spa offering facials and massages, and evening cocktails are served fireside every night in the main villa's salon. For a spot of privacy, you can also take drinks in the billiard room or wood-paneled library.

This resort on the Pebble Beach Golf Links has a Californian-Mediterranean design, red roof tiles, plaster walls, and bougainvillea vines. Pillars framed by palm trees lead to courtyards with fountains and gardens. Perfect-scoring rooms overlook the first and second fairways—"for golfers, they're a dream come true"—and have wood-burning fireplaces, wrought iron fixtures, and fabrics like mohair. "Go to the library and curl up with a good book"; there is no restaurant here—meals are available at sister property the Lodge at Pebble Beach. Perfect-scoring staff "are mind readers."
