Beautiful Location and excellent staff.
The food is good in the restaurant but a little hit and miss. Have the huevos rancheros for breakfast!
We enjoyed everything .
It is simply the best place to stay in Santa Cruz. I have been going there for a few years and absolutely love it. I have stayed in other locations in Santa Cruz and I am always disappointed. At this point I will only stay at the Dream Inn. But it's expensive. Go during the week or off season.
My preference is to stay in the rooms above the beach not the pool. I leave the sliding glass door to the balcony open all the time and I can hear people easily if i'm above the pool. Not really a deal breaker.
On the beach and walking distance to the wharf
Too many noisy little kids around our room
The vegan food offered!
The people at night on the beach were throwing things at the birds and I didn't like having to watch it nor did I like having to make them stop.
