I booked this place for the night leading into my partner's 26th birthday as it seemed to be something totally different to what the area (and, in fact, the world) have to offer.
Checking in was quick and easy, we were able to pull up to the front reception in the car and check in, then drop the car back down at the car park. We also had a lad in a golf buggy come and collect us and our bags and drive them to our yurt.
After spending a few hours looking out over the Pacific from in the hottub, basking in the sun and sampling the good range of ales, we chatted to the friendly clientele and watched the whales migrating south down the Californian coast.
Dinner was delicious and served by friendly and helpful staff, and could only have been bettered had the sushi bar been open. We stayed on a Tuesday and this is the only night of the week the sushi bar is closed. In all honesty, the reviews for the sushi bar were a large contributed as to booking the treebones resort, and it wasn't clear that the sushi bar would be shut in Tuesdays. This is the only part keeping the review from 5*, but was still certainly higher than a 4* experience.
Loved it loved it loved it and would pressure anyone to go if they were in the area.
