We also disagree with the 12/28 reviewer.
We absolutely LOVE this hotel. Cambria was in desperate need of an establishment like this. A hotel with a wellness/spa center and a wine tasting lounge didn't exist in Cambria. The staff is so friendly and service oriented and make you feel so welcome. There isn't a single need that they won't meet if they can.
Now, if the 12/28 family was not upfront with their accomodation requirements, it is their own fault.
This is our 2nd stay at the El Colibri and my husband and I always made it clear that we need two queens and a pet friendly room since we travel with our 11 year old son and our little doggie. We called ahead for the first visit and asked if they could accomodate us and they said yes. Then when we arrived, there were no surprises. We were as we said we were, a couple with a young son and a doggie. If the family in question misrepresented themselves, what is the hotel staff supposed to do?
The staff is so wonderful that I know if there was any way to help the 12/28 travelers, they would have.
But, enough about that. I'm going to talk about what we love the El Colibri. First of all, I love the lounge. It is a beautiful place to hang out, visit, listen to music and drink wine. And it sort of brings all the guests together and you end up making friends for the night or weekend. They have really nice appetizer plates available that are always yummy. And the staff was really accomodating when we decided to order pizza from an outside restaurant and eat in the lounge. They brought us plates and silverware to our little lounge table so we could enjoy the music.
We also love the spa. My husband and I both loved our massages the other day. Really top notch. The rooms are beautiful. We also brought DVD's to watch on vacation and Holly hooked up a DVD player for us.
We just can't say enough wonderful things about the El Colibri. As a matter of fact, we've already booked our room for 10 months from now when we come back for the Paso Robles Harvest Festival next October. We're hoping to come back this summer if we can make it work as well. This hotel is our new favorite place and we intend to return again and again.
I will recommend the El Colibri to all of my friends!
