"I love the location and atmosphere. The restaurant is great; nice quality/variety of food and fairly reasonably priced for a resort. The rooms are kind of small but very clean. Nice extras, like coffee, loofa scrub, etc but would love it more if you would change your toilet paper provider (very thin and rough).Linens/bedding is comfortable. Love all the outdoor sitting areas."

A fully restored Spanish Colonial Revival-style private estate dating back to 1905, the stately Dolce Hayes Mansion is a 15-minute drive from downtown San Jose and a 40-minute drive from the Santa Cruz beaches, with wineries, nightlife and golf courses all in the immediate area.

It is one of San Jose’s most impressive buildings, with sweeping mountain views and surrounded by lush, green lawns and gardens. Some refer to it as the Haunted Hayes Mansion, and many flock here in hopes of a sighting or encounter (although so far, these are rare).

Besides the alleged spirit guests, regular folk can take advantage of the heated outdoor pool, indoor and outdoor Jacuzzis, 24-hour fitness center, a 12,000-square-foot spa with treatments available (many priced nicely at $99) and tennis courts. Access to the nearby 18-hole Los Lagos Golf Course is also included, and there’s a large park across the road, which is good for running.

The Silver Creek restaurant offers views of the property's pristine grounds alongside daily breakfast and lunch, plus a Sunday Champagne brunch. Breakfast is a vast buffet, with omelet and Belgian waffle stations. At dinner, the Palm Plaza Lounge serves small plates and sharing platters, and its terrace is a nice spot to sit and admire the estate.

All guest rooms have complimentary Wi-Fi and a triple-sheeted bed. Parlor and Mansion suites are more modern and have a private balcony or patio and separate living space with a sleeper sofa. Some overlook the pool.

I thought originally thought I was suppose to have my breakfast included with my hotel stay because that is what I thought I signed up for. When I checked in the person at the check-in assured me that breakfast was included with my stay for 2 days. However when I got my bill, I saw that I was charged for breakfast. I could not find anything written where it said I was to have my breakfast included so I did not argue the point. I was however disappointed.

Breakfast was buffet style only. Extra if you ordered from menu. This was not explained prior to breakfast as it should have been.
