Monterey Tides, a Joie de Vivre Boutique Hotel, Monterey
Excellent4.0 / 5
On. The. Ocean.
It's unique status as a stand-alone property on the beach (unlike the WALL of beach-blocking hi-rises in Honolulu, Cancun, et al) overshadows its few flaws (small rooms inherited from its former status as a 1970s Holiday Inn, non-working amenities such as one out of their two elevators, in-room TV). Redesign in a modernistic weathered, beachy look suits it well. Bedding is very comfortable and stylish. While ocean-facing rooms (as well as their expansive 2nd floor lobby and 4th floor restaurant) have the best of it, ALL rooms get the hypnotic sound of crashing surf. Noise otherwise is very tolerable; we heard nothing from the many children in nearby rooms. Environmental and window controls easy to operate. Pleasant and responsive staff throughout. After check-out you had to pry me out of the lobby!

On the beach
The place has been redecorated in the past two years. Restaurant is good too. My favorite is sitting by the fire in the lounge. Bring your own shampoo and conditioner. Theirs smells like awful men's cologne.

A total win. On every level.
This was a quick last minute family getaway. After narrowing down the search to about 5 hotels, we rolled the dice and picked Monterey Tides. It was a total win. On every level. The rooms were nice, but not fancy (so I wasn't worried our small kids would damage anything). My only *complaint* would be the lack of microwave, but that is a minor inconvenience. It just would have been helpful. Our ocean view room was spectacular for dolphin and whale viewing - definitely worth the upgrade. Feet away from the beach was perfect for running to and from the sand. The restaurant has a great breakfast. Very friendly staff. Centrally located to everything. We will be back again soon.
