Stayed here on our way down the Big Sur to Santa Barbara. The hotel is literally right on the beach which was lovely.

Unfortunately we didn't have a balcony with a hot tub but we did have a fireplace which felt a little strange when it was over 80F outside (I presume it gets cold in the winter). The room wasn't huge but it was clean and we had a small fridge and dining table together with a very comfortable queen size bed.

We arrived quite late so decided to eat in the hotel restaurant and I am very pleased we did as not only was the food very good but we had a lovely view of the sea as the sun went down.

What made the hotel memorable for me however was the breakfast. When we checked in we were told that breakfast was served in your room and all we had to do was to complete a menu card and place it outside our room. I therefore expected to get a kind of airline meal, delivered on a plastic tray, but I couldn't have been more wrong. Next morning a wire basket with fresh coffee in a jug, OJ and milk in screw top glasses and warm bagels turned up. I've never seen anything like it and it was lovely to come across something a little quirky.

Stayed here to welcome the new year. Even with non ocean view it was still visible. We loved having our own hot tub and fireplace. Be careful with carpet and bathroom floor, they are super slippery. I fell in bathroom and slipped on carpet.

The Sea Venture has got it all! Great location, wonderful customer service and we really enjoyed to hot tub out on our deck. I loved that they have beach chairs available and bikes to ride. Loved the morning breakfast basket too!
We had cocktails out on the bar deck one afternoon and that was very relaxing. Since we were there at a slow time of the year it seemed real quiet and romantic.

Room Tip: My only piece of advice would be to make sure you don't get a room close to the restaurant. There were times when the smell of food cooking would work its way into our room.

From beginning to end, our recent 4-night stay at the SeaVenture Resort was 5 stars! To repeat from other reviews, location, location, location! Our hot tub on the balcony was clean, hot and wonderful. A great way to welcome us back from long bike rides or strolls on the beach. Comfy beds, nice clean robes daily, gas fireplace, plenty of room for our stuff.

And CLEAN! I don't know what to make of other reviews that differ. Our room was immaculate, cleaned deeply each day, hallways and public areas clean, staff pleasant and kind. Front desk staff was very helpful. Restaurant has good food, great views and really nice wait folks.

We plan on booking yearly for our anniversary. Can't wait until next year!

Room Tip: Ocean front without a doubt!
