Stayed here overnight after a friend's wedding. It was a lovely venue for an afternoon wedding as it had a beautiful view of Santa Cruz. The hotel is set atop a hillside, so it feels very exclusive without actually being far from town or from the beach. However, I was disappointed with the quality of the wedding food. I felt like I could have made something better at home myself as the food was rather bland.
As for being a guest of the hotel, the hotel had a tennis court and pool that I wish we had more time to take advantage of. The room itself was clean and had one of the most comfortable beds I've experienced in a hotel. I did appreciate the organic bath products and full-size hair dryer as well. We did hear noise from some of the other rooms, especially as doors closed up and down the hall. Parking was easy, although rather busy on a Saturday. There is parking in front of each of the guest buildings but those spaces were hard to come by. The big guest lot, though, was not very far from our building so it was still convenient.
All in all, it was pleasant stay in Santa Cruz. I would consider going back for another weekend getaway.
