World best

I only post reviews of properties (worldwide) that I believe are close to perfect in every category. Shutters is my 7th such in 7 years. This is a perfectly sized beach front resort. Not a mega maze. No scrambling for pool side seating. A very cool and charming setting for early evening cocktails.Well appointed and spotless ( tough task for a seaside hotel ). The staff is better than great! The GM Laura McIver must be gifted to lead such a genuinely motivated and helpful team. Dieter and Eric man the discreet entrance ( I drove by once) perfectly. The pool area and particularly the bar is fun and sheltered from the action on Santa Monica Beach. Beatrice watches over this oasis leading an army of well scrubbed, uniformed attendants. One small touch is the large variety of high end faux glassware (oxymoron?) . I hate when one, two, or three cup sizes fit all cocktails. The best way to summarize is my wife and I were there four nights with our 4 geographically dispersed kids and spouses, along with 6 grand kids under 5 years old. Great fun. But what was pleasantly surprising is that my wife and I returned to Michigan refreshed and fully rested. Thank you Shutters! Pete C

Great lunch

Amazing lunch I had the $35 three course menu. Beautiful asparagus starter, lobster salad main course. Amazing view looking over the beach. Fun to watch the cyclists going up and down on the boardwalk. Delicious!

Food & Drink

The Living Room

Designed to feel like an upscale living room in a Californian beach house, guests can relax on a sofa whilst enjoying stunning ocean views and wonderful food and drink. Two fireplaces, beach decor and popular live entertainments provide enough to keep you occupied for as long as you like.

Fitness Centre

Santa Monica is a famously active city, with residents enjoying a healthy lifestyle few can rival. As a guest you can enjoy being part of this too thanks to the fitness centre facility and excellent beachfront location. Take advantage of free weights, cardio and strength-training machines or just take a jog on one of the state's most accessible beach paths for an outdoor workout.

One Pico

Leisure + Travel have said that this restaurant is "the best hotel dining room in Santa Monica" and when you visit you are sure to see why. Intimate, chic styling, a grand central fireplace and sublime ocean views set the scene for your meal and a menu that plays with local flavours and fresh ingredients makes it easy to visit again and again. Exquisite wines, fresh pastas and a dessert menu that is set to stun are just a few reasons why this is a must visit restaurant for your Santa Monica stay.


Savour the beach vibe at this laid-back beachfront cafe and bar. Chilled drinks and delicious bar fare dragged out across an entire afternoon is just what Coast is about. A relaxed ambiance and wonderfully-tranquil setting lets you enjoy your holiday just as you like - be it relaxing or taking in the views.
