I have nothing but good things to say about this resort! The beach, pool, golf carts bonfires on the beach and restaurant are all amazing! We had a wonderful family vacation here and my 3 and 5 year old daughters loved it just as much as my husband and I did! We will be back to the Monterey area in... More

We had a wonderful evening at this resort with our grandson. You don't even see the property from the road. It is tucked into the sand dunes, lovely little buildings that house rooms and suites. The pool, hot tub and on site restaurant were all very good. Having the beach bonfire was a big treat too. Lovely experience, golf carts... More

Last stop before San Francisco on our road trip, planned to stay two nights but on arrival extended to three as it was so beautiful. We had a partial view ocean suite which was great, at the far end of the resort on the ground floor, what a view of the ocean, amazing. Room very pleasant with plenty of space,... More

Had a great three night stay in an ocean front suite. You can see and hear the waves in this private and secluded place. It felt like a weekend at a friend's seaside cottage. Great place for dogs also (many families had them, including ours). Not many food choices on site - we ate at the onsite restaurant about 3... More

So we are a family of four (2 x boys 11-14) coming to end of our US road trip. Booked from TA reviews as wanted something different to " chain " type locations. From our entrance to the lovely guy who ferried us to the room on the golf cart the experience was great. We booked a junior suite w... More

What a place, No cars allowed on site everyone is allotted a electric cart, lodges all along the beach with wonderful beaches, spectacular sunsets, and all with the sound of the sea. We loved the restaurant that is on site, Wal Mart is within striking distance. My Wife wanted to cancel a 3 day stay in San Francisco to extend... More

My husband and I stayed at The Sanctuary Beach Resort for two nights during our honeymoon. We travelled down the coast and this resort was our favourite by far. As soon as we came in we were warmly welcomed by the staff at the front desk. We were then taken to our room by golf cart (!). The room was... More

We only stayed one night, but the time we spent there was indeed a sanctuary. Our room was almost right on the beach. It would have been if we had been on the ground floor. The ocean is literally right there. We slept with the patio door open and the ocean was so soothing we slept 12 hours. After a... More

Your review was such a treat to read! It's tough to remember the last time I slept 12 hours with the sound of crashing waves outside... too long, that's for sure! Well thanks for staying with us and we are also looking forward to the next time you visit! See you then :-) More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights just to "reconnect and rewind"! What an amazing 2 days! After having happy hour and sushi in the bar where we met some great people, we all ventured down to the beach/firepit area to watch the sunset! First of all the sunset was beautiful and the firepit was so warm and... More

My husband and I stayed 3 nights for a golf mini-vacation. As soon as we arrived on the property, the word "Great!" just kept coming up…from the staff, to the views, the comfort and size of the room, the feeling of serenity you get from hearing the waves on the beach…we were sold on coming back the minute we got...
