Nice spacious rooms and a quiet place to stay. Elegant bathroom in the king room where we stayed on the back of the property. Continental breakfast was ample and inclusive. Couldn't give the maximum store for a few reasons. Booked a special rate that included arrival sangria. Person at check-in desk had no knowledge of the perk but complied anyway.... More

We wanted an overnight stay en route to San Francisco. I googled hotels on Cambria and there was a list. Somehow El Colibri caught my attention. It did not disappoint. Good service. Luxurious king size suite, enormous bathroom and very clean overall. We had tapas for supper and was well made. Price was reasonable and included breakfast, it was enough... More

Check in very easy, on site parking and short walk to room. Room very plush and roomy - big comfy beds, bathroom fab. Jacuzzi/spa available, unfortunately weather too cold to enjoy. Only downside (if you can call it that) was the breakfast buffet - limited in its content.

I booked The El Colibri Hotel as a romantic getaway for my girlfriend. The surprise was quickly overshadowed by bad customer service and lack luster accommodations. I tried to run the Jacuzzi-tub and it would short-out and completely shut-down. After back and fourth with the front desk (they don't have a maintenance person) we gave up. The room was not... More

We really liked the lovely room with great facilities we had, the staff was also very helpful and kind. It made us really enjoy our stay. Unfortunately we have the time to try out the spa, hopefully next time.

We had plans to travel to Hearst Castle and stay at the El Coibri Hotel & Spa. The night prior to our arrival a family member became ill, we had to cancel the visit. We did NOT ask for our money back, simply to hold and move it to our future travel date. The hotel was not sympathetic, nor would... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at El Colibri. It was a clean,comfortable & friendly stay. The location right next to the moonstone walking path was perfect. We had a view of the surrounding greenery so the fact that the hotel was not right on the beach did not bother us... and the price more than made up for it! Lastly... More

The hotel is beautiful and very nicely located. Just wish it had that ocean view! Well, we can't have everything. The bed was very comfortable. Nice fireplace in the room but my favorite part was the bathroom. Big soaking tub and huge shower. Ready to go back.
