The website doesn't reflect the reality of the accommodation, apparently the tent houses are good but travelling with children and you can't have one. We unloaded the (very tolerant) kids after a good few hours travelling to Half Moon Bay and after we saw the room, which was tiny, very dated and with an unpleasant odour we loaded back up... More

Our 'oceanfront cabin' had a white tent right in front of us blocking our view. Our cabin floor was very un-level. The smoke alarm in our cabin started beeping at 5am. The wireless internet connection was terrible.

We planned our elopement with Rockwater Secret Cove Resort. The package was absolutely perfect, as the price was right and it included everything that we desired: venue, accommodations, breakfast and dinner, flowers, cake, photography, and spa treatment. It could not have been any more perfect! The photography was stunning, the meals were delicious, the flowers were beautiful, and the venue... More

We stayed 3 nights - the last one in a "Tenthouse Suite". What an amazing experience, we're telling all out friends about it. It's expensive, but fantastic! However, the first 2 nights we stayed in the "Suites in the Main Lodge". These are nothing more than very clean, small motel rooms in a motel wing. Unless you need to stay... More

When it is windy the "tent awning" makes quite a noise that keeps guests awake. Not sure what if anything you can do about that. Making sure guests are aware of the "binder" in the room would be helpful.

With a more knowledgeable and able front office staff, and accurate reservation and check out this place could be really great. The food was unexpectedly good. Really appreciated the fresh in house made bread. Food quality quite high and friendly staff.

Poor Service. Overpriced. No help with the luggage. Dinnerservice without Communication. Only seasonal staff. This Lodge lives only from the Location close to the Sea. The Rates for water Taxi Service are obsolet. They really dont take Care for customers.

Stayed in a cosy studio cabin with great ocean view and deck to chill out on. Interior of the cabin could do with a vacuum given the thick layer of dust on the blinds and further accumulation on whatever item I put down for a few minutes. Bed was a little lumpy, I would have expected better for what the... More

Friendly and welcoming staff, food is great, views are lovely, the only drawback is that the rooms need updating. Would highly recommend going kayaking, and the nearby hiking trails. The facial treatment at the spa was very relaxing and worth it.
