We stayed here in April 2011 in a 1 bedroom partial view suite. Unlike other resorts where partial view means that if you lean far enough over the balcony, you can see the ocean, here there were a couple of beautiful trees between us and the ocean. The trees actually made for beautiful sunset pictures.
The room was very clean and spacious, the bed was comfortable, and the hide-a-bed was good even for an almost 6 ft teenager. The kitchenette was older but well stocked with a bar size fridge, microwave, 2 burner stove, dishwasher and full sized coffee maker with a supply of decent coffee. There were even wine glasses, salt and pepper and a candle for the balcony table. We had a corner unit with a large window as well as patio doors. There was some noise between floors and the units are set up with two entrances side by side which are beside the bedroom. Not a big deal, unless you have the inconsiderate neighbors we were blessed with on the weekend. The hotel does sell a lot of discounted rooms on the weekends and we ended up between two groups that were together and they seemed to feel that no one else in the hotel mattered. To the hotels credit, we booked way in advance and were given one of the best rooms in our price category, I also took the time to phone the hotel to let them know what was important to us.
The pathway to the beach was a beautiful walk so we never bothered with the golf cart service. With the amazing view from the balcony and well stocked kitchenette, we didn’t dine in the restaurant. The little store across the road was well stocked and had really good muffins and deli sandwiches.
We went to Santa Cruz several days and the road was often congested, in the summer it is probably very slow going. In Santa Cruz, our son took surfing lessons from Dylan (owner of Santa Cruz Surf School) who was amazing. He also went on the zip line tour at Mount Hermon which was great. Unless you have the urge for a serious tacky tourist adventure (we did) you might want to skip “The Mystery Spot.”
