Would have liked to have enjoyed the amenities and beauty that the resort offered but was not able to due to late check in. We were only able to stay for one night so that limited getting the full experience. We did dine at the Gardens of Avila. Nice service and setting.

My stay was extremely relaxing and worth every penny. From the atmosphere , to the staff , to the available hiking trails and free. yoga everything was perfect. I could have had a better mini vacation from my vacation.

I stayed at this resort many years ago when it first opened. The property is as beautiful now as it was then. Two great hiking trails and gardens to stroll through. Dinner at the on site restaurant Gardens of Avila was so special and enjoyable thanks to the friendly and attentive wait staff and food was fresh and delicious. Only...

A true retreat not far off the highway. Very relaxing and peaceful. The hot tubs didn't smell as much like sulfur as I expected, which was nice. We got a couples massage and it was wonderful, plus it included a 30 minute soak in a private tub beforehand. The tubs you reserve are a little weathered and don't seem to...

We had the most wonderful experience staying at Sycamore Mineral Springs! We were only here for one night, but wish it had been longer. We stayed in the 2 bedroom King suite room, which has recently been remodeled. It was an absolutely gorgeous room. Very clean and quiet. The best part was the private mineral spa on the patio. Everything...

Stayed just one night on the way to another destination. The service, rooms, food and having the jacuzzi on your very private deck was all wonderful. Having the trail to Avila right out the door was a really nice surprise. The beds were very comfortable and the room very large and very clean. The pool was a little cool but...

This place is beautiful. The tubs and shower was really nice and the rooms were clean. I would definitely recommend staying here. Two things I didn't like: first the tubs you have to fill and drain which wastes a lot of water and time. Second we were kicked out of our room at 1055 as we were preparing to leave....

Me and my wife found exactly what we were looking for; rest and relaxation. The Staff added to the experience by being friendly, helpful and informative. The spa was clean and serine with a wonderful atmosphere. I would recommend SMS to anyone visiting the central coast

The grounds and room were lovely but the service and staff was mixed- some were very helpful and some were rather snooty and did very little to rectify some of our concerns. Overall the place was beautiful but for nearly $300 a night I would expect better service. For example we missed the maid who must have come around at...

“The newer suites across the street require that you be taken on a cart to your room, but the one we had included many amenities.”
