Cambria is beautiful. The hotel esthetics are above average. My stay was interupted by a television that refused to work properly. Matthew did his best to help us out, but just couldn't get it to work. No television for three days, not the end of the world. However, to other staff it just didn't seem like anyone else cared. Several... More

Find another hotel/motel. There are lots of them along moonstone drive. Any place is better than this place. No refrigerator. The folks who we came in contact with during our three day stay were ok. They were polite. But the hotel is nothing about what it says it is. Close to the main highway. Far from the beach. Next to... More

I hastily booked this hotel through Priceline. We checked in and found our way to the assigned room through a dark and winding hallway. The room was very attractive but looked out onto a parking lot obscured by a row of trees. Then we noticed that there was no refrigerator which we needed to have for medical reasons. We asked...

My wife and I had the privilege of visiting El Colibri for a brief 4-night stay earlier this month. The rooms were comfortable and spacious, WiFi reliable, and the amenities were first-rate. The complementary continental breakfast featured everything one might want to start out the day, but the real star attraction was the wine bar, attended by friendly, knowledgeable staff.... More

My wife and I stayed here for only one night, but the hotel and staff made a very good impression. First, the staff; very friendly and helpful. I'm sorry to say I'm terrible with names, but the man who helped us check in (younger man with a goatee) was excellent at his job and very We had a few questions... More

We spent a night here and loved it. The room was great, breakfast was good and the service was great. The best part was being so close to the boardwalk. We took a lovely walk along the ocean. The weather was perfect. The room was clean and orderly.

Loved our stay here as this hotel provides free buffet breakfasts, beautiful toiletries (soap, lotions etc) and a big bath or spa bath. The rooms are very spacious and guests are provided with beautiful bath robes. The king size bed was super comfy and we loved the Hispanic theme the hotel had! Would definitely stay here Again
