Beautiful setting - Ocean, beach, sand, whales. Nice and quiet. Nice room except for couch, which was very uncomfortable for sitting.
Sofa in the room was very uncomfortable for sitting so that limited gazing at the ocean. Also, one day lobby staff were borderline rude with curt questions about our presence as if we weren’t supposed to be there. I have never had such an experience in a lobby.
Atmosphere and location was really nice.
Views were beautiful. Staff professional.
Rooms need remodeling. Carpeting dirty, blankets need washing. Robe was stained.
We loved our stay at The Sanctuary and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet getaway just outside of Monterey. The amenities were amazing, the rooms very comfortable, and the staff were delightful.
We had a wonderful stay in Marina. Dune, beach, sea and the resort itself are wonderfully located and very clean The restaurant offers a great selection of local food and the ambiance is impressive.
