About Monterey Tides, Monterey

Cozy, beachside Monterey resort with a heated pool

Between ocean and lagoon

Monterey's only resort located directly on the beach, Monterey Tides faces the Pacific, with Laguna del Rey at its back. After a morning of beach play or a bike ride around Laguna Grande Regional Park, you can drive to downtown Monterey in 10 minutes.

7 golf courses nearby

There are 7 golf courses within a 15-minute drive, including the coveted greens of Pebble Beach and others along the iconic 17-mile drive. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is fun for all ages, and you won't regret a stroll through bustling Fisherman's Wharf or colorful Cannery Row.

Cocktails and ocean views

When the ocean gets too cold, a heated pool and hot tub will warm things up, and a fitness center is also available. All that activity is well rewarded with inventive fresh-catch dishes at Cafe Beach Restaurant, or fireside cocktails at Sandals Lounge - both have sweeping views.

Airy rooms, mini-fridge

Facing the ocean or the verdant courtyard, the 196 guestrooms are breezy and bright, with floor-to-ceiling windows and blackout shades for a good night's sleep. Mini-fridges and coffeemakers make in-room snacking convenient, and HDTVs and iPod® docks offer entertainment.

Monterey Tides, Monterey
Checked in to room 214 Ocean View. Our AC/Heat was not operating and it took 3 reminders that we needed help. 3 hours later it was fixed. That evening before our swim in the heated pool we realized we were not supplied with our two bath robes. Our lamp had only the light bulb which was disturbing to our eyes had to request the lamp shade that was missing. Pieces of tile surrounding the bath tub was broken and the door from our dresser to access the refrigerator and safe was broken. I opened it and it was completely disconnected. We did not change rooms as they were booked. The room was not prepared for guest to arrive for comfortable getaway.
