The location, the property.
Oceanfront suite views & walking along beach, evening firepit on beach, pool, Luxurious room, fun using buggy, great area to explore
Restaurant and bar were good and staff very friendly but perhaps not as upscale as the rest of resort
Beach access and golf cart. Restaurant was five stars.
Sofa bed very uncomfortable.
The pool and hot tub were not working...the heaters were out of order for both. I was really hoping to get to use the hot tub
This fabulously located hotel, with attention to detail and lovely staff made our stay so memorable. Early morning walks along the beach watching the whales just off the shoreline, and evenings sitting with a glass of wine watching the sun set made this an amazing break in our hectic trip along Highway 1. The pool was always quiet and the water warm. The great value for money breakfast in the room each day and gd food at the restaurant just added to the stay. Truely did not want to leave.
Small thing but a bedside table would have we gd - altho not a lot of room for one
Not much. Location is beautiful but the design is so bad you cannot actually enjoy your surroundings.
Most of the people here are obese, and the resort is designed with them in mind. Besides that, the dirty secret is that this is a TIMESHARE so be forwarned-- this is middlebrow bad taste at its pinnacle. If you live in a city, don't come here. It's truly offensive to the nature surrounding it.
The location was a bit removed from other places of interest.
We had a cabin right on the ocean front which was perfect. The room was very comfortable but a bit small - however everything was nicely presented. The staff were very pleasant and we had a wonderful massage and facial. Pool was nice and warm. A peaceful place and it was wonderful to see dolphins so close.
I think it may have been this website that boosted the price - as the hotel said it was more then they would charge! Although it is not the fault of the hotel I was disappointed that the ocean at that point of the bay is not considered safe to swim in.
After a minor problem at check-in, Maggie on the front desk was superb in sorting out the issue and making us feel welcome. Top-class service. Hotel has a great location, next to a beach (and sea with dolphins!). Excellent.
Originally stayed here in 2011 - loved it so came back in June (2014). The staff is wonderful, the location is great. The Ocean View Jr. Suite (715) was OK.
The suite showed signs of wear & tear - especially the bathroom. I realize being situated on the dunes, ants are difficult to control, but sharing the wet bar with them was not a pleasant experience! The Wifi did not work well - we had more success with the internet, when we turned it off and went under our own power. Arriving from Michigan, driving from San Jose airport, we were tired when arriving - ordered room service with cocktails - after ordering, dining services called back saying that cocktails were prohibited from being delivered with room service - that's ridiculous! Will try different accommodations next time - will still recommend to others, stating these drawbacks!!!!
Location-right on the beach/dunes, solitude, comfort, clean, the sand dunes, having a refrigerator in the room.
Loved the view from our room. I liked that check out wasn't until noon.
There was not an ATM in the lobby. The pillows were way to hard and the bed felt like I was sleeping in a hole.
Comfortable, golf carts, staff,
It was so windy we couldn't do anything outside. Not your fault, the ocean views are better in some rooms than others, next time will ask for specific room.
The golf buggie to get around was fun to drive!
The room was well positioned on the seafront, however it needs a complete facelift and refurbishment.
Location in respect of clean, beautiful beach
Facilities in room lacking. No bedside side table one side, no shaving mirror. This was a deluxe room but found in cheap hotels, especially a bedside table both sides of a double bed!
the location being a beachfront was a plus
typically cold in Monterey. Being on the beach I would want warmer weather. We could not enjoy the beach because it was too windy. Restaurant on site were not that good
Nature & comfort. It really is a sanctuary.
breakfast delivered in a basket; fireplace; balcony with sea views; very comfortable bed
We had a Junior Suite which was big and very comfortable. It had amazing views of the ocean and the dunes and a fireplace to make it even cozier. My daughter loved the pool and the jacuzzi. You get the use of a buggi car which is really fun and there is a bonfire in the beach every evening. In all a truly magic experience. Also, the beach is spectacular.
Great getaway!! Loved the ocean view!!!
Fireplace two HD Tvs breakfast delivery Golf carts I had a nice relaxing time despite the rainy windy weather
Weather not their fault no Blu ray DVD player high cost of room should include complimentary snacks and soda and water
Great location and room
Quite pricy if it's just for one night stopover.
Ocean view suite obstructed by sand hill. only heat provided was by gas fireplace, hard on copd patients
In my first visit I liked literally everything ..
the fact that I could bring my dog on the trip was so wonder- ful!!!!
