I've stayed at countless hotels all over but The Sea Venture Resort definitely has taken the #1 spot in my book. 1st when you drive up, you couldn't ask for a better location, just off the 101 freeway and literally on the beach. I was taken back by the accessibility to the beach, just a few steps from the lobby. The front desk staff was extremely welcoming and friendly and were always available and prompt if and when I had a question during my stay. The ambience of the resort was very relaxing and comforting and with personal hot tubs to soak in on the balcony, it just made my trip all worth it! Although there are plenty great eating spots in the area, I decided to take advantage of the in house dining at their restaurant upstairs and the meal I chose was absolutely amazing. I couldn't have asked for better weather on a weekend and that was the cherry on top. Needless to say this is my favorite hotel on the central coast and will definitely be returning ASAP....hope this review helps you!
