We had a great room with a very good ocean view. Everything was good except they allow dogs and the person staying in the timeshare next to our room had a little dog that barked all night. Also the people above us were very loud and obnoxious. We've been here many times and this was the only time his has ever happened. So that will not affect us staying again. We love this resort and will definately be back! Highly recommended.

After a nightmare of a flight from JFK to SFO the a almost 2hr drive to the resort, we were so happy to check in, there was a problem, I had made reservations months before, our room was somehow unblocked in the schedule , so we were told we would have to stay in one room for a night and then move, the next day we were not thrilled with having to move, the room we were going to move to. So we asked if we could upgrade , which we did for additional fee, which was worth it, the view was beautiful, right on the oceanfront. the sunsets were spectacular to watch. The staff all over the resort was wonderful, Trisha at the main desk and the manager Derek were very professional and accommodating to us, with the check in mix up, they gave us a $20.00 credit to use on property. the property and the rooms are beautiful. The biggest down side to the resort is the onsite restaurant the "Kula Ranch", we had dinner one night and that was one dinner too many , the service was fine, but the food was awful. I would definitely recommend this resort, but not the restaurant onsite.

Secluded and romantic yet family friendly at the same time. We go every year. If you want to be in the middle of everything and close to the tourist favorite spots then this is not your place. If, however, you like quiet and sunsets and the sound of waves rolling in then this is your place. We love the golf carts and the bonfires and the comfy atmosphere.

I booked an ocean view room on Hotels.com, but when we checked in, I was a little dissatisified to see that our room had only a slight ocean view, it was not what we had expected and why we had paid more money for that specific room. However, the hotel itself had a lot of great features like distance to beach, huge bathroom, great staff, and nighly fire pit. Overall we enjoyed our stay here, but for anyone looking to stay here who wants an ocean view, you should book through the hotel instead of online. Ask for an oceanFRONT view or else you will end up wasting money. The oceanFRONT rooms may not be available online.

This was our 2nd time staying here at the sanctuary Resort and 10th time to Monterey. It has to be the most spectacular stay I have ever had at Monterey. We got a beach front room and were treated to views of Dolphins jumping, Humpback whales feeding, birds of all types and all from our balcony. My kids enjoyed playing on the beach which was a 2 minute walk from our room. The service was great, the people were friendly, and the views, pool area and beach were awesome! I will 100% for sure stay here again, Best place in the Monterey area if you want to be close to the beach.

The hotel was nice and the staff friendly & helpful. The room was small, but comfortable. My husband and I were getting away to celebrate our anniversary. The rooms are typically 2 to a floor, and the the door was right next to our bed. The entrance to the suite next door was directly across from our door so we heard whenever they came or went or had visitors. We stayed for 5 nights and I believe there were 3 different groups in the other room during our stay. We heard them all. While they were in the room, we didn't hear much, though, so that was a plus. The ocean view was spectacular! The deck was nice, but not too private - and, again, we heard our neighbors. When we are at home we are often too busy to watch TV so we don't pay for cable. Therefore, we like to watch cable shows when we vacation. Beware...although there is cable at the Sanctuary, the channels are limited and not great (and the reception sometimes spotty). This was a HUGE disappointment for us. Also, was no DVD or Blu-Ray player, so no other options for us. Overall, I would not go again. Too much money for too little.

Wow, where do I start? My husband and I decided to stay at this hotel because it was on the beach. Boy, was it ever (see photos). We could see the ocean from our one story cottage and hear the ocean waves every night. Our room, a suite, was huge! We had clean beach towels every day and (my favorite part) our own golf cart to get around the hotel/resort. Note that the hotel is affiliated with Wyndham Worldwide, but, for the best experience, spring for the rooms (cottages) : You will not regret it!

Made our trip to Monterey Peninsula even more enjoyable. After day of touring Monterey, Carmel, and 17 mile drive; stay here was relaxing and enjoyable. Enjoyed having the golf cart for visiting the restaurant on site, the beach access, and just traveling the facility. Lobby Building/Area was nice. All personnel we encountered from check-in, restaurant, room personnel, and check-out were helpful and friendly. Had a good meal at the restaurant. Went to the beach for the night fire pits and enjoyed. Because of the area climate, we used our gas fireplace in the room. Bathroom was spacious as my spouse and I had totally separate areas to use for getting ready to retire at night and start the next day. Did not use pool or hot tub, but looked nice. Great stay and was not far from Monterey.

The resort is called Sanctuary for a very good reason. This was my second visit and I would love many more. The staff are all happy people who don't hesitate to get what you ask for. My room,610 was perfect and the view spectacular! Fresh coffee at sun rise on the patio is perfect. I am already looking forward to my next visit. Planning for kids and grandkids to be with me next visit. They will love the s'mores and bonfire on the dunes every evening.

This hotel had such a great feel. Your proximity to the ocean is unbeatable. The rooms were nice...the staff was fantastic. We will definitely be going back!

love our stay here. so close to the beach you can hear the waves at night. we didn't get the ocean room either. the pool was nice and the hot tub was one of the biggest we have seen, perfect for our 1 yr old baby. Will stay here again if I have the chance. The only disappointment was the restaurant. so-so food, but very convenient.

Sanctuary Beach Resort is a wonderful place to disconnect & relax. The staff is very attentive & make every effort to make your stay memorable. We celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary there with the Romance package. It was awesome!

We had a wonderful evening at this resort with our grandson. You don't even see the property from the road. It is tucked into the sand dunes, lovely little buildings that house rooms and suites. The pool, hot tub and on site restaurant were all very good. Having the beach bonfire was a big treat too. Lovely experience

Lovely place, beautiful, clean rooms. Unique, all units are close to the ocean. Everyone gets a little golf cart to drive around the grounds, which was fun for my son. But we had a strange experience: the man who helped us with our bags told us, within a very short time, that (1) we should definitely NOT go in the water at all because of the frequency of shark attacks, and (2) terrifying stories about how many people drive off the edge of the cliffs in Big Sur and die, cameras in hands. Might have been fine if it had just been my husband and me, but it scared my son enough that he had trouble enjoying the visit. We had our surfboards, which is why he started talking about sharks. While it is a sharky place, he dramatically exaggerated the frequency of shark attacks in the area. It was pretty disappointing.

I appreciate you taking the time to write this review. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the property and the golf carts, which are always fun for the kids! I am sorry to hear about your experience with our bell staff!! My deepest apologies go out to you and your family for the misleading information that was given to you! We hope that during your next visit to the central coast we will be able to leave a better impression!

Our stay here could have been so much longer --- we were thinking a lifetime would be nice!! We saw pelicans, dolphins, sea otters and seals right from our private terrace, our grandson thought the golf cart was so much fun, the staff was considerate and helpful, the double showers in our suite were unexpected. In short, it was a marvelous stay, just wish it could have been longer!!!

I am glad that you were able to see some of the amazing marine life that we have here in the bay! Kids can't get enough of the golf carts :) Next time you are in the Monterey area, we hope to see you again!

Such a beautiful location - right on the beach! Rooms, recently updated, are heated by a gas fireplace. Open the windows, enjoy the ocean breeze, stay cozy by the fireplace.

We enjoyed our stay! Walked down to soft sands, watched dolphin leap. Listened to Ukulele music at nightly bonfire. Jacuzzi and pool were large and well-heated. Kula Ranch restaurant on grounds was friendly and food was good. Kerig in room-with microwave & small fridge to keep nibbles and leftovers. Can have room service or continental breakfast brought to room. Treated to small bottle of wine and nice view upon arrival. Fun to drive golf cart around grounds though really not needed for access to most things.
