I normally have a wonderful stay however this time was slightly different. I stay here to enjoy the rooms with the patio which I Love rain or shine however as I was celebrating my anniversary the front desk had upgraded my husband and I to a nicer room. My new room however was on the 2nd floor. My upgraded room also had a lot of dead bugs on the window sill (we called to have that cleaned) and the light fixture had a long cobweb hanging from it (we stayed away from that area). When we opened the window we saw a large collection of bugs right outside the window in some sort of net in the corner. We were concerned if we kept the window open more bugs would fly in. So far, not the best stay we have had here.

staff was overwhelmed with two weddings,

Cons: make the hotel guests feel as welcome as the wedding guests.
The staff seemed overwhelmed the entire time we were there, there were two weddings happening the Saturday night we checked in, but hotel guests shouldn't have to suffer service We were checked in to an unprepared room, the bar drinks took forever and the dinner was a 45 minute wait. When in called to confirm the RSVP the day before, I asked if they could assign a room, I was told no due to the fact that I used Travelocity to book it, I was told we have the valley view option or the forest option when we check in. When I did check in (20 minutes in line) I was told there was no such thing as a valley view room and we could have the forest view or meditation room....didn't really want either but went with forest view. What was suppose to be a romantic evening with my wife turned into a 45 minute wait, we ended up getting the food to go. Rooms were OK but seemed kind of old and dated. For what I paid for the rooms, I would not recommend this hotel.

Relaxing Eucalyptus Grove Retreat

Well kept resort in retreat like setting. Nice amenities included such as fitness room, hot tub, tennis courts, sand volleyball, hiking trails. Good for nature lovers, saw deer outside sliding glass door of our room. Away from congestion of Santa Cruz tourism. Easy drive to other points of interest, Monterey, Gilroy, etc. Mini-fridge in room however no microwave. Bottom unit a bit louder from upper unit foot traffic. Would try 2nd floor unit next time.

This place is a little hidden gem between the forest and beach. It is very serene and peaceful. Excellent place to get away from the hustle and bustle of a fast paced life in exchange for peace and serenity.
