“A nice experience....”

Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort
Ranked #51 of 304 Restaurants in San Luis Obispo
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 10, 2013

I stayed at the resort a few years ago, while attending a local event, and booked a room in one of their spa suites on the other side of Avila Drive. You cannot drive to this particular area, so must either walk across the bridge and down a small gravel road, or take one of the hotel transportation carts. Either way it was a nice experience and gives one the sense of privacy.

The rooms were spacious and well appointed, and the patios were all equipped with private outdoor hot tubs. A very nice experience.

My wife and I stayed here for one night, primarily for the hot springs. The hotel rooms are very nice - each has a private outdoor hot tub with the sulphur springs water piped-in. You can fill the tubs from 7am to 11pm, and a quiet time between 11pm and 7am prevents you from running the hot tub jets or filling the tubs, but you can still sit and enjoy the water and fresh air. The resort is located in the hills close to Avila Beach - lots of fresh air and privacy, and overall very relaxing. The grounds of the resort are clean and very we'll kept - there are walking and hiking trails if you want to venture out.

We did not try the restaurant, though the menu was impressive. We opted for something simple and low-key (tacos!) from nearby Avila Beach, which was a 5 minute drive down the road.

Would definitely return!

We received a gift of 2 massages, drinks and appetizers. It was the best day ever. We started off soaking in the hot tubs, then had the best massages ever, then a glass of wine and appetizers. We walked the Zen garden and laid by the pool.
We were there from 12-9. The property is beautiful, restful and inspiring.

We went to the mineral baths which are very private and located on the hills under the sycamore trees and couldn't be more relaxing and wonderful
We also ate lunch there and came back for a delicious dinner. Fresh garden veggies and herbs are used in every recipe. Excellent service and gourmet preparation!
