No other place in Monterey area that I would rather stay. It is beautiful calm and the staff is the best. I have stayed in many places in my life......this is the best for the money. Right on the beach. That's why you come to this place. Derek the manager and the Regional Manager will go out of their way to make your stay the best. I'm on a fixed income and I save to come here.

I stayed here for two nights for a family trip and was not impressed by this property. The pictures online made it look nicer than it was. For the price I believe that the amenities and service fall short. We had to request something multiple times before they delivered it and there was a long wait on arrival. The Kula Ranch restaurant food was not good (two of us were sick afterwards) however the wait staff were very friendly. The firepits on the beach and the beautiful beach location are the o...

When you're paying over $500 a night for a room you expect that level of quality. Some may say you're paying for the location, granted. However, if that's a case there is a Days Inn (?Best Western?) RIGHT across the street and I'm sure their rate is 1/4 of this place. I worked as an operations manager for a major hotel chain for many years and I can tell you that if you're charging rates like this, your room needs to be PERFECT. Many little things that added up to the hotel not being in the be... Read more

My friends and I stayed here earlier this year. What a colossal disappointment-over priced and very poor customer service. Our room was dirty and the room service is so bad, I can't even. Golf carts would be nice if the setting was nicer-once you look away from the ocean, you're just in a parking lot gazing at the motels directly across the street. In reading the other reviews it appears the management is well aware of what sound like chronic and systemic issues and yet all they want is to hav... Read more

Two weeks ago my husband and I were first time visitors to California, traveling from the other side of the country. We were taking a 25th anniversary trip to a few different destinations along the coast. Sanctuary Beach resort was one of four properties that we stayed at. The cost was very reasonable, so I wasn't expecting much. We were coming from the bustling San Francisco area and were very happy when we arrived in Marina to get some quieter relaxation. Our first impressions left us pleas... Read more

I was impressed from the moment I walked in to the lobby, a nice fire place and welcoming staff. Check-in was easy and Derek made us feel very welcome. As the resort is quite large, each guest has their own golf cart to get around. The room...well it was simply amazing, another nice fire place, sea views, excellent attention to detail. Although it may be a bit expensive for some people, I would recommend staying, it's one of the best places I have stayed in in California.

Recently stayed here with my family for a quick two night trip, I think saying it was ok sums up the sentiment mostly in relation to the price. As a former timeshare owner, I saw similarities between this place (Wyndham property) and many timeshares across the country which have lost their luster and aging quickly. Rooms nice but outdated, amenities for the price lacked comfort like towels or grade of accessories. Beach is spectacular and you are less than a mile off the one which is very positi... Read more

Quiet resort 15 minutes away from the city of Monterey. Select a room with an ocean view! Binoculars are provided to help guests watch the whales and dolphin activity. We added the Couples Massage package to our stay which made for a very relaxing vacation experience! Restaurant with bar is on-site, and the town of Marina is just a short drive. We will definitely return!

Polished , professional staff. Check in is at 4 pm and I was called at 2 pm for early check in. Beautiful, out of the way setting, next to Marina State Beach. Each room has their own golf cart to travel back and forth to the parking lot and around the property. My adult son and I had a lovely Deluxe Suite. He slept on the custom made pull out couch, and we each had our own TV. The large bathroom had 2 sinks and two showers. The front desk was very attentive and delivered extra K cups of coff...

It was a very relaxing stay at the resort, the view from the room was fabulous, very calm, with the fireplace just perfect. Bathroom was a great size, the terrace is lovely to sit and have a cup of coffee in the morning while watching the sunrise. Unfortunately we had a gloomy and cold day, it must be wonderful with a sunny weather, but still it had its charm. The golf carts are an added bonus. Only down point is that breakfast should be in the price, even if Lou Lou's in Monterey is near and hi... Read more

We had a fab stay at Sanctuary Beach Resort - mostly aided by the free upgrade. We had a fabulous suite right with an ocean view. It was such a cosy room, the weather wasn't great whilst we were there so we curled up in blankets and sat on the porch over looking the ocean before coming inside and enjoying the fire. We ordered breakfast room service which was prompt and very enjoyable.

What a relaxing vacay. The view from our balcony was awesome. Omg we were excited and shocked to see dolphins, sea otters and whales from our balacony. The staff were welcoming and provided great service to us. We already book our next trip there for this year. Our kids are excited to play in the pool and make smores at the bomb fire on the beach again.

Considering this was our most expensive stop on a 3 week road trip, it is definitely not worth the money. The hotel room felt very dated & tired, and in need of a serious refurbishment. The hotel advertised rooms having air conditioning but this didn't seem to be the case in ours. The noise heard from the adjoining suites & rooms can get irritating along with the general noises on site. The hotel beach is a bonus but in the end we used the room as a base to go elsewhere. A right let down. Save y... Read more
