Pros:
Cons: Were renovating and didnt tell us in advance. Thus didnt know that no restaurant on premises. Mostly fast food in area. No fine dining. Major disappointment for long awaited vacation. Noisy construction during days. No ability to relax in peace.

Pros: Very comfortable room with a view of the ocean!
Cons: The decor in the restaurant was outdated and distracted from the overall ambiance. This was really the only downside from the whole experience for me. I was traveling with a friend- we were walking along the beach from Capitola to Monterey, and we really enjoyed our overnight here. It was one of the highlights of our adventure! I'll be looking for other opportunities to stay here!

Pros: The beach views were amazing! The cozy fireplaces in the room really set the tone for relaxation. The spa treatment was the best my husband and I experienced. Complimentary wine, cheese and fruit were served daily in the lobby for all guests to enjoy and socialize. The BEST!
Cons: We only regret our trip wasn't longer to continue enjoying. There was nothing we didn't like :-)

Pros: Great location on the beach. Very quiet and relaxing. Lots of wildlife to be seen on the beach (Pelicans, Sea Otters, Dolphins). Room was very spacious and well thought out. Sushi bar in the restaurant was delicious. Lovely staff. Complementary wine in the main building each afternoon.
Cons: Only down side is the restaurant opens late afternoon and so there's no lunch or hot breakfast options. But there are restaurants and a Walmart within a 5min drive.
