Only place to stay in Santa Cruz

Stayed 3 nights for the high surf. Great time and hotel. Jack O’Neill lounge was festive with live music. Good menu at Aquarius. Going back for sure! Watch surfers and volleyball from your deck. Great pool and spa.

Amazing Hotel


Every room is ocean view! An amazing view at that. Super close to the boardwalk and wonderful restaurants. The rooms are spacious and well decorated. The pool and spa are really nice too. It’s not cheap, even in the off season, but worth the money. We booked a second trip the day we returned from our most recent visit. This is the only hotel we will stay at in Santa Cruz.
