We got a very good deal for our trip - breakfast and dinner included in the price and, of course, free parking and most important of all - excellent service! The guys and gals in the hotel were astounding in providing all the necessary things in case you needed anything. Also, the surprise that I got from the hotel staff was amazing - thank you for that! The location is great, because you can quickly go to the ocean and visit many restaurants that Santa Cruz offers. Also, going to the highway is easy from the hotel. The stay was very calm and relaxing, and the breakfast and dinner was very tasty.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Santa Cruz Village. The staff members (both at the reception and in the restaurant) are incredibly friendly, helpful and polite. The room was quite simple but overall sufficiently furnished, including a kettle and a mini fridge for convenience 🙂 The surroundings were quiet and calm. The location is good, there's a bus stop just outside the hotel and the ocean is a few minutes walk away.
