Stayed here with my husband and three year old son. The amenities were great for our family - my son loved the pool, the beach, and the golf carts (every guest receives a cart to drive around the resort during their stay). There is even a small playground which he used one afternoon. For me, an important part of a hotel is the bed. Often they are uncomfortable and the sheets are a bit too stiff or too heavy on the detergent. This bed was super comfortable with nice sheets. I slept great! The room was clean and staff was friendly. We had a partial ocean view but didn't care because the whole resort is on the beach anyway. Marina is a tiny town, but it was quick and easy to head into Monterey and Carmel each day. Would stay here again!

A long weekend trip to Monterey Aquarium was made all the better with this hotel. Great accommodations, great view of the water, good staff. The only downside? A restaurant that is overpriced with terrible quality. We could hardly eat any of what we ordered. Just a bad night? well, we thought that might be the case but 2 nights in a row? no. the place is just horrible. plenty of good eateries within a short drive. use the gas, don't waste your $$.

My wife and I had a great time. The room was clean. Our view of the ocean was great. We had excellent access to the beach. The only thing that we noticed were a few ants in the room.

We booked a partial view room, which turned out to be a view of mostly golf carts and a distant blue spot if you stood at the right spot in the window. The front desk was quite insistent that my view constituted a partial view and offered to upgrade me for an extra $40. The funny thing is even the "upgraded" rooms had poor views. All in all not worth the money. Many better hotels in Monterrey.

Pleasant, serene and mostly comfortable. Sofa was horrible to hang out on. I am an unpacker and the lack of accessible drawers was a mild disappointment. Restaurant was just under very good. Thing that bothered us the most was the cheap flatware for both in restaurant and room service. The flatware edges hurt my hands and the knife could only threaten the steak. Location is the best! Ocean sounds, smells and views--just perfect. Firepits to snuggle by and on-site spa. Huge pool. Don't bring the kids have it all to yourself.

Spent our anniversary there because of the excellent location near the beach in Marina. The room was beautiful, the view and sound of the ocean wonderful. The golf carts get you around the compound, including to the beach access. Didn't try going to the fire pit at night. Had room service breakfast both nights: Reasonably priced, quiche and ham/cheese croissant were very good, the coffee, orange juice and danish good,. The cranberry juice watery and bagel had no cream cheese or other topping.

Ants and a spider in the bathroom area. The bifold doors leading to the slider wouldn't open without lifting them from their track. However, the staff seemed receptive and eager to correct the problem. The view and the staff were awesome. The room was unbelievably quiet. Overall, I would stay again. It would have easily been a 5 star rating had it not been for the ants, spider and equipment issue.

Stayed for 3 days in a suite right on the beach. Kids loved it... Bon Fire on the beach, nice big pool and jacuzzi. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Personal golf carts for each room was a nice touch, making it easier get around. Short 10 min drive to Monterey aquarium and many restaurants. Enjoyed our stay...Will definitely go back there again!

We have been coming here for our anniversary for 7 years straight and have always had a wonderful stay. This was the first time we were put in a room below another room and although the views were still wonderful, the people above us were very loud. After a not so peaceful night, we were upgraded to a suite with even more breathtaking views. Thank you very much SBR staff!!! We will be back next year and I will be requesting that same room for sure :)

Booked a beach front room deluxe for Valentines day and upon check in, they told me they upgraded me to a beach front suite. So far so good right? Once I got to the upgraded room, 602 Suite, it was a very nice and clean room. My major complaint that even though it is advertised as a beach front room, half of my view was staring a dune and I can only see the ocean if I'm looking at it at an angle. For a $500 beach front room, I was expecting a better view. The view I got at a hotel in Laguna Beach was 1/2 the price while actually being on the ledge.

Hotel is nice overall, but services are a mixed bag. Attention to detail is not a strong point. I didn't get housekeeping during my stay at all. The second day, we were out for 3 hours in the afternoon but came back to our room not cleaned. The third day, we were out for most of the day, but again housekeeping didn't come. We were supposed to get some special welcome gift (split-wine), but it was never offered. Hotel staff says to call for any concerns. How about getting it right the first time? For $200+ a night, you would think attention to detail is paramount. The staff do try to correct things, but it would've been nice if there wasn't a need to. Location is great, close to everything you might need or want. Beach is beautiful. You're given a cart to drive around the grounds. It really is not necessary. Probably meant for older folks to get around. It's a little tricky to start the cart. Instructions were barely helpful. Again, attention to details would've been nice. I would stay here again for the location. Hopefully their service improves.

Was the most enjoyable time at The Sanctuary Beach Resort! ! ! Staff was friendly, helpful & room service was on it. We had a partial view But it was amazing the Ocean was right there & we left the door open all night so we could listen to the waves at night. They do a bonfire every night at 5:00 pm on the beach. It was a great way to get to know some of the other people that were staying there & share a beer or wine together. We plan on going back again but staying longer next time. The bike trail is not to far away & we rode the Fort Ord trail witch was Awesome... Larry & Kelly Manz

Suite was well-appointed with a great view, fireplace, and two TVs in case sunsets aren't your thing. Nice tub and separate shower, all very clean. Turndown service was a nice touch, but bed was very soft, so I didn't sleep as well as I do on a medium-firm mattress. Second night we stayed (Friday) we could hear kids running around in the room above us- a little detraction from the serenity, but hardly worth mentioning. I hope to come back in the summer for a long weekend when the weather is warmer and we can just relax on the beach.

This was the most beautiful resort I have ever stayed at. The dunes on the ocean are breathtaking. Staff is over the top friendly, and the rooms are beautiful. How anyone could give thus place less than 5 stars is beyond me?!?!

Should b even more amazing in the warmer months. Such a great location. So much privacy! Will b back in the summer for sure! Gave 4 stars for room comfort only because there is no bed side tables and hence no place to put some water or charge your phone. Huge and great Delux room otherwise. And fireplace is perfect

Can't deny the location, but make sure you ask for "ocean front" not "ocean view". The rooms are tiny, you have to drive golf carts to and from room. The access to the beach was nice and accommodations for your dog (poopie bags, bowls, etc) were ok. Still, be prepared for the tiny space where you won't find room to change your mind.

Beautiful, comfortable rooms, some with ocean views, on ecological sand dunes away from the bustle. Pets are welcome, there is a path to the beach, and they provide binoculars for whale watching or whatever! Bathrooms are well-appointed, beds are huge and comfy, lovely pool and hot tub. No cars past a certain point; they assign a golf cart to you for your stay!
