          A wonderful hotel to stay in for a unique experience of seeing Santa Crus, and spending time on the beach or in the pool with family. Beach access excellent and beach is safe with lifeguard. Need car to access other areas of Santa Cruz

          I always look for waking distance to attractions and this hotel was perfect for boardwalk, pier and beach. This hotel had all I needed. The hotel restaurant was really very good and we enjoyed their breakfast almost daily. I will be back.

          I believe it is, since there were a lot of people in it. I didn't check the temp though so I don't know how warm it was. There is also a Jacuzzi.
