Property conditions & facilities



6/10 Good

The property is beautiful spot and if you stay on the property, it is relaxing and heavenly. However, it is unfortunately nothing going for it outside. The beach in front is lined with huge rocks and is difficult to reach. The access roads from the main highway are atrocious and look possibly dangerous so that the only way out is by car or taxi. If people were paid to toss trash into the vacant lots and along the streets in the entire area of Salinas, it would be hard to see how they could have done a more effective job. The hotel itself is nice but the floor tiles on the stairs, the room floors and around the pool are so slick that any water/rain makes walking extremely hazardous and mixed with any oil impossible. The facility does not provide safes in the room or luggage stands.

10/10 Exceptional

We LOVED this hotel! Everyone who worked there was incredibly nice and went above and beyond for us.The staff was very attentive they would even order food for us from local restaurants and could get us a taxi very quickly. The hot tub was lovely and it was so beautiful to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean at night.

Came with kids and grandparents. Loved it so much we stayed longer than planned. Beautiful, clean, exellent service and perfectly located on a quiet the beach for some days of relaxation and tranquility. This achitect- designed house and poolside garden must be experienced.
