Visited here for 1 night when visiting Santa Cruz. We were really impressed with our stay. Right from the start the reception area is really cool. Staff very friendly. The pool area is atmospheric with plenty of sun beds. Room was of a good size with comfortable bed. The shower was brilliant with great amenities.
Sleek and contemporary style! Art on all the walls. Gourmet quality restaurant. Staff is very friendly and accomodating. Beautiful and clean rooms. The pool area has an outdoor bar for sunset and evening drinks and dining. Close to UCSC and not far from the beach.
