Great place. Updated and clean. Restaurant has good food. A bit expensive but certainly one of the better places in Santa Cruz. Has own beach area and awesome views.

Love the decor and location! The only negative was the front desk staff, who weren’t as friendly as they could have been. Love the views and location. We will be back! Thanks!

not happy with the price of parking, was told $25 for parking - was not told it was $25.00 a day... we bought 4 drinks & 2 taco by the pool which was billed to our room, went to pay it was $78.00 for this, $17 each for drink that were in a little plastic cup. Over priced

The room was beautiful and so was the view of the ocean from our patio! The pool/jacuzzi area was relaxing and clean. Staff was friendly and very helpful. It was well worth the money!

I liked how the hotel was right on the beach. The pool was heated and spa was as a big one. Loved them both!
