“Great place to relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Returned once again to Sycamore, again "splurging" on a suite across the highway. Comfortable, quiet, great setting for soaking and then relaxing in front of the huge flat screens. Good restaurant, fine spa and pool area, bikes for rent and a nice hiking trail head right on the property.

This resort is woodsy and relaxing. We enjoyed the private spa, fluffy comforter and all the pillows! We had dinner at the restaurant and the meal was absolutely delicious! It was a birthday celebration and mentioned this when making the reservation. It was disappointing that the birthday was not acknowledged at all.

We had a very enjoyable time. The newly remodeled room was very nice, the weather was perfect. Our walks around the spa were filled with great views and
fresh scents of the trees and flowers. We had a couples massage, amazing! Make time and enjoy this great spa and all it has to offer.

With the views of the trees, and the tubs in the rooms, it's the best place to relax the cares away, and the new restaurant, you do not have to travel far to get good food, I recommend Sycamore has the best place to stay, and you will want to spend many nights there just to feel the cares drift away.

The grounds of the property are gorgeous. You feel like you are at a woodsy retreat but still close to the beach! Spa services were great and all employees were professional and service oriented. Average rating is due to the age of the property and could use a face lift I several areas. Only complaint is that the kitchen needs to learn how to cook a hamburger, medium well does not mean rare or well done/burnt.

It was a pleasure to host your recent visit to the Central Coast. Sycamore is surrounded by beautiful grounds that allow for different attributes such as the near by beach and hill side views.

We are currently in the process of remodeling each of our rooms across the resort. Thank you for your kind feedback as we value each of our guest comments to continue to grow the resort each day.

We look forward to your return visit in the near future.

The water is great. The service staff are fabulous but the rooms are small without any comfy chairs in the room or on the deck. Our first stay was a web special and that cost was reasonable. But this stay made us decide not to come back and pay full price.
