Enjoyed Most: The beautiful beach! The resort was nice, the staff friendly and accommodating.
Other Comments: It was very nice, just pricier than I usually pay. The wine was a small bottle and had to call for it. The environmental fee was waived off Travelzoo charge but had to pay at resort. Would have been less to have gone through the hotel and brought my own wine. Will not stay again due to expense. Would recommend if willing to pay the money and inconvenience of having to be driven to and picked up by staff. The restaurant was closed so unable to use discount.

Enjoyed Most: Everything was an exceptional experience! From the moment of checkin to our departure. The staff is extremely accommodating, professional and friendly. Our suite was beautiful and spacious, the location and view were top notch! The grounds were well kept and beach access was fantastic! The attention to details is something not often seen. A+!!
Other Comments: One of the staff members, Michael, was always willing to assist us with anything we had questions about or to help with our luggage. His smile and positive attitude was a great plus! We plan on returning in the near future! Thank you for an amazing trip for our family!

Enjoyed Most: Bonfire at the beach, except we had to call to have facilities bring extra wood for fire pit
Other Comments: Person at check in was rude and unfriendly.. Not sure if we were upgraded to Travelzoo program.. Nothing about the resort was explained to us as well.. I had called to resort before booking w Travelzoo.. Plenty of vacant rooms available!!

Enjoyed Most: Nice and quiet except for the wind.
Other Comments: We got an upgrade but the room was still pretty small and sand leaked around the window and sliding door. Didn't appear that they made much attempt to try to clean it up or fix the problem. While close to Monterey, the weather is much different. Cloudy/foggy, windy and generally colder than Monterey.
