We booked this hotel last minute when the property we previously booked indicated that we may have an issue due to someone in our party who had allergies to pets. I have to tell you, so thrilled we stayed here! Extremely beautiful, spacious room! Really comfortable beds, great fireplace, large and beautiful bathroom. Lovely spaces on the first floor for...

Room had a low-flow showerhead (took awhile to rinse shampoo), both TV's were inoperative (DirectTV service had expired), wifi was free but spotty (and no wired internet), no fitness room, no pool, no fridge, no safe. Not much of a "spa" despite the name (just a few private rooms with scented lotions and a masseuse on call). Staff was very... More

My husband and I wanted to spend our 5 year wedding anniversary on the coast. I spent weeks researching hotel after hotel from Santa Barbara to San Simeon. The El Colibri Hotel and Spa met almost all of my criteria. I prefer boutique hotels to chains always so I looked for the best one I could find. We wanted to... More

Booked our stay based upon the fact that they advertised an in-room fireplace. It should have also noted that it is the only source of heat for the room as well. Bathroom has so little usable counter space we ended up using the floor for our personal items. There was no place in the shower to put anything other than... More

I booked this place to celebrate a romantic birthday get-away. Place was way below expectations and what was advertised on line. Much nicer places in town. I got the romance package and wouldn't waste my money again. Tiny heart of rose petals with 3 small squares of chocolate ( like you would get at a chain hotel) and a blend... More

Great locale - 5 min walk across Hwy 1 into the West Village or same in opposite direction to beach. Newest property in Cambria - clean, well appointed rooms, friendly staff. Wine tasting in the evening.

We automatically felt very comfortable at this hotel. Nice staff, friendly atmosphere. Very relaxing. We stayed in a King Suite corner room in the back. Nice room. Fireplace in the bedroom area. Very romantic feel. They have a nice continental breakfast. Nothing spectacular, but adequate. One of the nights we were there, they had a live musician with wine tasting.

We couldn't have chosen a better place to spend our anniversary! It's not even fair to compare to other hotels on Moonstone as this is in a different class. Everything was perfect........and then some. Quiet room, huge shower and jacuzzi tub, fireplace, sliding door (that we kept open all night....with the fireplace going) and falling asleep to the sound of... More

Very nice, the one bedroom suites are on the road, so you heard the road noise, however the King room are excellent, very clean and spacious. However what make this hotel so special is the OUTSTANDING SERVICE provide by everyone - especially the front desk. Mathew and Paul were fantastic and every single person on the staff was service oriented.... More

The rooms were spacious with a lot of atmosphere. We had reserved two rooms, however, the second room was a little small to accomodate a baby, the hotel was very accomodating and found a larger room, which made the stay that much more comfortable. The hotel is situated not too far from the beach with a broadwalk that takes down... More
