Location, Location, Location!
The Rio Sands Hotel is the perfect destination for your coastal getaway; only a block and a half from the oceanfront that leads to 20 miles of uninterrupted sandy beach.
This area is great for kayaking, golf, fishing, shopping, biking, and so much more. There is great hiking at Nicene Marks and the wineries and museums in the area are definitely worth some exploration. And with only 8 miles to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and 35 miles to Monterey, the possibilities are endless!
Our pool and BBQ area is a great spot to picnic, hang out with family or just lounge in the sun. Our pool is heated to 80 degrees all year long and our hot tub is perfect for some sunset relaxation.
Start your day right with our expanded Continental Breakfast (includes a hot waffle bar, coffee, tea, orange juice, granola, hard boiled eggs, bagels, toast, muffins, breads, Danish and peaches). Our banquet room is warm and inviting on those early mornings.
Several different room types are available; from our King Guest Room that sleeps 2 people, all the way to our Family Suites that sleeps 6 and is the size of a small apartment. Check out each room description for details on the types of beds and amenities available.
