The view was amazing and the room was very nice. The bed was so comfortable that it reminded me of home. The staff took really good care of us and made our stay even more enjoyable because they genuinely appreciated us for staying with them. The only downer was that the hot tub was out of order during our stay.... More

Then finishing the last days at Post Ranch Inn even more fabulous and even more expensive ! Since wanted to enjoy Monterey area for the Sunday evening, I found the Sanctuary Beach Resort on... More

I surprised My gentleman with a Local getaway. This included a stay here. Overall I was pleasantly surprised with it all. Location and closeness to the beach is terrific. We had a nice view from the room. Room service breakfast arrived is a basket and was really well done for a nice breakfast in bed. Restaurant on the property had... More

I would recommend the Sanctuary for anyone that wants to get away and unwind. close to Monterey but secluded from the hustle and bustle of being in Monterey, crack your door open and listen to the waves instead of cars. Great place for a romantic get away, beautiful sunsets and foot steps to the water. If you want to have... More

We just happened to find this hotel on the net it has now become our new secret getaway. From the moment you exchange your car for a golf cart you realize you are in for a special treat. Room 204 was perfect providing great ocean views from our patio or our bed. Being able to travel with our dog made... More

I'll return for sure!!! I got a deal on a deluxe room and it was awesome. Search for any type of deal/discount because it is on the high end of the price scale for me. I wouldn't say the rooms are overpriced because you really get what you pay for. The rooms are mostly set up as two and three... More

Sanctuary Beach Resort is fantastic! When you first arrive you park your car & are given a golf cart to drive around the entire property during your stay=super fun. The location right on the water is insane. Each patio basically has sand right there at base so you feel you are at a beach resort, not just another hotel near... More

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids) really enjoyed our stay here. It was super clean, and the kids loved the fact that we had a personal golf cart to get from the parking lot to our room. The kids played in the heated outdoor pool even though the air temperature was only about 55 degrees. The hot tub... More

A well appointed hotel with reasonable privacy. Quiet for us, but we were on the corner in a one-story building. Rooms are clean and beds comfortable with comfortable chairs for sitting. Coffee and toiletries provided. The patio is pleasant. Good access to the beach by a central path. Appreciate the efforts at preservation of the beach flora, but do need... More
