A return trip confirmed many of our memories--best of all the astonishing location and views, and the graceful service and welcome. This is a trip that one may have to save up for, unless spending about $900 a day is a routine decision for your household. As a once a year weekend, however, it is invigorating.

Room Tip: Ask for upstairs facing the surf. We would guess that all rooms have ocean views, but the sound is a...

Truly heaven on earth. We stayed for 4 nights for the NYE party and golf tournament which were both incredibly awesome, as was the sunny, clear and crisp weather. We booked the standard room which was part of the NYE/Tournament package, but wished we had booked an ocean view (sold out by the time we checked in to our resort-view room) since the weather was so incredible.

Make sure when you book to request the specific bed-type room you want, as we were given a 2-queen bedded room and the king rooms were all booked. The room was plenty big even so and though they offered to move us to a king room the 2nd day we stayed put as it was fine. I would request a room away from the elevator however.

The lobby lounge was very cold (even with the roaring fire) as they keep the front doors open so bring a sweater! The outdoor terrace (with cocktail service by Roy's) with its many fire pits was a highlight, and it was so nice to just sit and take in the amazing ocean views as well as the bagpiper who strolls in every evening at sunset. The 25 USD daily fee to cover the tips of the valet, housekeeping, etc was great because we didn't need to worry about having cash on hand all the time.

I can't speak highly enough about the phenomenal NYE party! Great food and casino games, palm readers, caricature artists, dancing, incredible decorations- top notch all the way. Add that to perfect weather, great accommodations and food, and wonderful friends- truly this was a slice of heaven. Can't wait for next year!

Room Tip: Away from elevator noise, close to lobby to avoid the long walk to room, ocean view if at all possib...

We have stayed at the Inn at Spanish Bay a few times now.This was our second NYE there-they throw an AMAZING NYE party.It's a phenomenal event.
Let's move on to the hotel experience.The service is nothing short of impeccable . You can valet or self park (that's free).The lobby and outside views of the greens,ocean and landscape is breathtaking.It's surreal how gorgeous it all looks.
The rooms are nice-sort of old school meets contemporary.Clean,soft colors and wooden furnishings.The bathrooms are large .Now as much as I would like to sing the praises of this high end luxury resort-I need to put this out there.I know it's winter.I know that.But for rooms starting at
$615.00 per night and a NYE bash at $399. per person-could you turn on some HEAT ???? It was at times between 36 and 50 degrees -and getting in a dress for a party at least turn it ON !!
It really tee'd (no pun intended) me off ! Even in the restaurant "ROY'S"( in the hotel ) with four people )from Canada,New York&Philly~asked to change tables once to warm up but still could not wait to leave and get out of the freezing cold place.
The NYE party goes ALL OUT and is ALMOST worth every dollar if I (and numerous others)did noit have to go back to our rooms to get our COATS AND COVER UP MY LITTLE BLACK DRESS !!!!!
ANYWAY.
back to the party.
The theme this year was Once Upon A Time-a lavish fairy tale event.
All you can eat beautiful seafoods,cheeses,vegies,meats,desserts,alcohol stc.It was replenished all night long and was so fresh .Great ballroom with a fabulous "Live Action Heroes" band, a super hero discotheque with great DJ,* Cross the drawbridge to enter a castle through the mouth of a watchful dragon
Goldilocks and the Three Bears for dishes that are too big, too small, and just right
A yellow brick road in the Emerald City Casino
Delectable desserts and sip on scrumptious drinks in the Mad Hatter's Tea Party
and so much more,
All in all the I have NEVER seen the rooms on "sale" but it's on at of the most beautiful places on earth .So get a room and bring a sweater.and gloves.and a coat.

Room Tip: Bring a camera/iPhone etc. to capture the stunning beauty of this fabulous place.

We spent two nights at Inn at Spanish Bay this last weekend. While it was almost at full occupancy it did not feel like it. The check in experience is very nice and the service all the way around is great. Expect the in room dining to be pricey and the incidentals as well. They do have a convenient $25 per night resort fee that covers all gratuity so it frees you from having to tip everyone every time you get your car or when they deliver your bags etc. The setting is incredible with amazing views and the outdoor patio with the firepits is a must for a dink at sunset or at night. Roy's is a good dining option too!

Room Tip: Forest category rooms are same size as ocean view rooms - but the ocean views are well worth the ext...

We just went for drinks and were so impressed! They brought blankets out to everyone on the patio (plus had great fire pits), had a good drink and appetizer menu, and the bagpiper that plays at sunset was amazing. First class experience!

I spent a week here in August for work. The area is breathtaking, truly amazing. And there is plenty to do whether you golf, play tennis, like to shop or hit the spa. Food is good and the rooms are nice and clean. It is not unique though, and the large property can seem impersonal (with the exception of the fire pits and evening bagpiper). I would not say I felt 'right at home,' as I typically choose smaller establishments when planning trips- but definitely not bad for a working outing.

If you are looking for a bargain, then look elsewhere. If your are looking to check the bucket list for the golfer in your life, then look no further. We just returned from a visit for my husband's 50th Birthday. He of course enjoyed playing Pebble Beach and Spyglass.

The style is traditional like the Four Seasons. I prefer more modern hotels but the ocean view made up for everything. It was the only time that I felt it was worthwhile to pay to be upgraded to a room with an ocean view...it was spectacular.

We were there with our 3 and 5 year old girls. What surprised me was how much the rest of us enjoyed it. We were upgraded to an ocean view room and could watch the bagpiper play from inside our room. We loved spending the evening in the lounge listening to the carolers. There was so much to do with the kids (Monterey Aquarium, Point Lobos State Reserve, Monarch Santuary.)

It really opened my eyes to the Monterey Peninsula and can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Pay more for the ocean view. It's the only time I felt it was worth it.
