This property is under new ownership and they do not take care of it. Not very clean, but the worst part was when we went to use the fold out bed there was mouse poop in the bed. The property did nothing to remedy the situation we had to keep calling and bugging them to finally get a small credit.... More

Wife and I wanted to get away. From the start it was an adventure . They take you to the room in a golf cart and out the bags in the room. We chose the ocean front deluxe. What a view we had. When we got in the room there was soft music and the room was so nice.Large bath... More

We stayed at this resort for one night in late July. A sterile type of resort where you are at the beach and there is nowhere else to go. The pool is not spectacular. We were there in late July and it was 60 degrees so only the hearty kids were in the pool while the fog covered the beach.... More

Having visited 2 years ago and provided very positive feedback, disappointed to have to provide less positive views this time. Location is fantastic with superb views, quiet with immediate access to the beach. Upon arrival we were disappointed to hear that the golf buggies that were provided previously to access your accommodation and get around the site have been 'done... More

We spent 3 relaxing days at this magical place! The service was above expectations! The entire staff we interacted with was extremely friendly and professional! Our junior suite faced the ocean and we slept hearing the waves crashing. The fireplace in the room made it perfect and cozy! Gorgeous Sunsets! Tastefully decorated and unpretentious! Just perfect!!

In an area where it was tough to find a place to stay this past weekend, chose this one because of its suite option...needed an extra bed...pull out couch was fine, as was our bed (thread count on the linens pretty skimpy...rather surprising); nicely appointed, rather bizarre double sink bathroom with a double sliding door (not a whole lot of...

We were greeted reasonably warmly by the reception staff and taken by golf buggy to our room. The guy who took us was very informative and equally friendly. He was able to recommend restaurants locally and further afield. We ate on site the first night but were disappointed (see separate review). There's easy access to the beach and there's also...

Lovely three days spent here. Absolutely stunning oceanfront. Love the room features, fireplace going on and off automatically tied to thermostat. Loved the English Sles brewery I town. Locally owned and they are a hoot!

We stayed 1 night. Booked over booking.com a normal no sea view room for about 200$. we came too early and got an upgrade for a beach/sea view. The Beach is amazing... Very quiet and the bonfire by the night is awesome! we d love to come back!

We stayed at the Sanctuary for three nights in September 2016. The trip was a celebration of our 25th anniversary. We ended a stay in the area that included a trip to San Francisco, a stop at the Ritz in Half Moon Bay. Even after our stay at the Ritz, I cannot say more than enough kind words about the... More
