Fantastic location, location, location !

Ekerö, Stockholms Län, Sweden

Well, the location can't be questioned when it comes to this hotel. Everything is just great ! One small thing though (if you want to be picky) - the breakfast is far too noisy if you like a quiet start of your day. Sounds and feels like a busy lunch restaurant 12.00 instead of a cosy, relaxed and low-key breakfast serving as I as a residing guest would appreciate. 1st row ocean-front double is a must - what fantastic morning & evening views ! Just make sure it's on the 2nd or 3rd floor unless you like people on the boardwalk to look straight into your room... Simply a great hotel !

location is fabulous but a failure to innovate whilst prices rise makes this an expensive ask

London, United Kingdom

the location is fabulous they do maintain the property well it does look as fresh as when i first stayed here 30 years ago $55 to park your car is an usurious cost especially when you have to wait so long for the car $150 for a breakfast for 2 when the food is adequate but unexceptional I hate being packed like a sardine on the pool deck the prices go up but the amenity does not shutters are getting greedy it is time to look elsewhere methinks

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.
