Club Del Monte is an art deco jewel set amongst 25 acres of sprawling lawns dotted with oak, cypress and pine. Originally built in 1880 as the grand Hotel Del Monte, it was destroyed twice by fire and rebuilt. The present imposing structure (which is the 1926 incarnation) resembles a Spanish-Moorish fortress. It remained an elegant hotel until 1951, when it was acquired for the Navy's Naval Postgraduate School. As you can see, this facility's history is long and illustrious.

Located in the Historic Hotel Del Monte, Club Del Monte continues the tradition of excellence in one of the "Most Beautiful Place in the World." The Hotel Del Monte established a reputation as "The Most Elegant Seaside Resort in the World" and "America's Most Loved Resort" and living history paraded through its corridors as it notable notable guest list expanded including Presidents McKinley, Hayes, Harricon and Teddy Roosevelt; General William Tecumseh Sherman, Charles Lindbergh, Hawaiian Monarch King Kalakaua and England's Marquis of Queensberry.

The Club Del Monte staff continues our historical tradition of serving our customers great food in the elegant setting of the Historic Hotel Del Monte. Our Executive Chef, Hugh Butler, has worked at the world famous Greenbrier Hotel and Resort, Carmel Valley's Quail Lodge and the Pebble Beach Resort, as well as owning and operating two of his own successful restaurants. We buy the freshest fruits and vegetables from "America's Salad Bowl" in Salinas Valley and purchase the freshest seafood right from Monterey's Fisherman's Wharf, less than two miles away.

We had a wonderful wedding reception at Club Del Monte in the El Prado Room. It's such a classy place at a great price for the area. The staff did an amazing job and every detail in the room was perfect. Melanie and Christina were both pleasant to work with especially in person.

It took us around a month to get an appointment to see the place and it had to be during the week, but once we were booked they were much more responsive. Some details were a little hard to understand like how they priced/served their alcohol and the setup. I had to ask a number of times to understand it and when we were done it was still different than my understanding, but overall close enough.

They could be a little more willing to volunteer information in that regard, but there are a lot of details when it comes to this kind of event so I can understand it being a little difficult. Another example being there was no air conditioning and when you add 100 people it gets very warm in there even with them having a fan.

In spite of some of the small confusion we had during planning, we had complete confidence in them leading into the day.

We looked at nearly 30 venues before booking here and we actually didn't give the taste of the food consideration when booking, but later when we had a tasting the food was really good! We got a lot of compliments from people on the food especially the raviolis. I was pleased to see they had a little flexibility in their menus as well for people with dietary needs.

Being on a military property, you'll have more security for you and your guests to deal with than most venues and it is an inconvenience. You can't just show up to see the place without an appointment and guests need to provide at a minimum their legal names in advance to have access.

If you feel that you and your guests can agree to their security rules, I would very much recommend Club Del Monte as a reception site. We had a wonderful time and it was very beautiful there.

Melanie and the entire Naval Post Graduate team did an amazing job! The location is breath taking and you never have to leave the venue. The hotel on grounds was even better than I had imagined. The food was delicious and exactly what we had taste tested. The "Grand Ballroom" was exquisite and was easily able to fit my 200+ guests. The Naval Post Graduate truly made my wedding day the fairy tale I had always dreamed of all my life.

I had the most beautiful wedding at NPS! The pictures speak for themselves. I found Melanie and the staff to be very professional and easy to work with. The only negative I can say is related to being on a military base. A large mobile trailer was placed on the grounds as a temporary office during renovations. This came in a few months prior to the wedding and was near and or on ceremony site. Melanie and the team worked with me to make a price adjustment on the rental of ceremony site and to find other options. This wasn't something Melanie could help and did her best to make right. If it weren't for this hiccup it would have been a perfect venue. If given the choice I would absolutely have the wedding there again!

We had our reception in the Barbara McNitt Ballroom and it was an amazing, historic venue. I could not have imagined our wedding anywhere else. The location or gorgeous - elegant and old fashioned. We visited other venues that felt cramped with no windows that made you feel like you were in a cave. The ballroom has tall windows overlooking a courtyard. It was reasonably priced back in 2004 compared to many other venues in the area.
