8.0 Very good
No in-room coffee maker or kleenex or spare toilet paper. Excellent morning restaurant service. Ocean views from rooms, bar and restaurant are beautiful. Rooms need a re-fresh. Beach only steps away is beautiful. Only 10 to 15 minutes from the best of Monterrey and Carmel.
6.0 Okay
Pros:Closeness to beach and heated pools
Cons:Didn’t sleep at all the first night because of screaming baby in the room next to me and thin walls. Moved rooms and had no working heater on wall or floor. Just said “error” and we froze all night barely slept again . Staff simply said oh I’ll have them check on the that. Had higher hopes for the amount of money spent.
3.7 Poor
Cons:Part of our group didn’t get their room on time. Then the hotel gave that same room to others so people walked in on them. My room had only half roll toilet paper. No drinking cups nothing. No extras at all. Door had to be slammed shut. Tub wouldn’t drain. Shower barely worked. They told us no non fires yet they were having them and completely smoked out our room. Would NEVER stay here. By the way they charge a resort fee but there’s nothing that you get for that money pool is not open hot tub is drained and there is literally nothing else you can do there besides play on the beach the beach is free.
2.0 Poor
Pros:The ocean
Cons:Book some place elsewhere
3.7 Poor
Pros:Nothing. Couldn't get out of there quickly enough.
Cons:The place is dirty, rooms are depressing and outdated. There marketing photos are misrepresentation.
2.0 Poor
4.8 Mediocre
Pros:Location was amazing and the lounge/lobby/bar area was beautiful!
Cons:The rooms smelled musty/moldy and for the price were not worth it. I expected a nicer room, better toiletries, and a better bed. It felt like a motel.
8.0 Very good
Pros:Right on the was excellent
Cons:We wanted to leave a day earlier...gave them plenty of notice but were turned down...they easily could have resold the room
5.1 Fair
Pros:Right on the beach
Cons:Pool towel had mild stains, chipped paint throughout, first room they put me in was an absolute dark hole with no view, second room was better but small. This hotel was made over but very cheaply.
3.1 Poor
Pros:The lobby
Cons:Rooms are not nice at all. The pictures on the website are deceiving. The cleanliness is really awful. When we told all this to the manager, he tried switching us to a different room but we didn't accept as it was exactly the same. At that point the manager told us that we shouldn't expect more from a 3-star hotel. So if you care about your room being clean, and overpaying for an upscale motel, then avoid this hotel.
