- Smart, chic hotel
- Direct Beach Access
- Private Balcony
The most upmarket option in Santa Cruz, this 165 room hotel is chic and stylish and has the prime position in town. Located on the site of Jack O’Neill’s first surf shop, the hotel boasts direct access to one of the town's beaches, where you can hire boards and wetsuits if you are in search of finding that perfect wave. If you prefer to stay dry, you can just sunbathe on the beach, or enjoy the views of the Pacific Ocean from your own private balcony or patio. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the famous Boardwalk and the wharf, which is home to many restaurants serving up the fresh catch of the day. If you don't want to leave the hotel, there is a restaurant on site. The hotel also benefits from a good sized pool, with sea views, and a hot tub.
Each of the rooms enjoys a view of the Pacific Ocean and has its own private balcony or patio. Room types vary in size from standard rooms to deluxe suites. For families, there is the choice of having inter-connecting rooms or a 2 bedroom suite with king bed and a sofa bed. All of the rooms come with a large flat screen TV, fridge, coffee maker and safe.

We had a wonderful time! Our transfers (besides a bit of a wait when we arrived) were smooth. The gentleman that drove us to and from the airport also drove us to our hike and he was very nice and helpful, clean car and very accommodating.
Our tour guide on the first day, Mandy, was charming and insightful. It was a slow day in the markets but we appreciated the space and gave us a chance to hear all about the Souks. The gentlemen who was with her was a wealth of knowledge and both did a very nice job!
Our hike was awesome and our guide was great- he even took us to a cool waterfall and took great care of us; lunch in the mountains was delicious!
The hotel was so lovely and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. The food was great and the rooms very comfortable!
I did a good amount of damage in the market (often accused of being Berber;) and truly hope to be back next Spring... maybe a girls trip or perhaps I’ll bring my kiddos!
Thank you for organizing such a nice getaway for my husband and I; we will confidently recommend Tourdust to our friends!!

We had an amazing trip. Everything was well thought out and so much fun. What a great way to truly see the country and learn the culture.
Joseph was the perfect guide. Very kind, professional, knowledgeable and patient. The kids loved Joseph and keep asking when will they meet him again. He found the Big 5 for us which was unforgettable! Please pass along our appreciation to Joseph.
Maji Moto was also another incredible experience. They had great customer service and we loved experiencing their culture.
Sunbird was absolutely beautiful and I wish we had more time there. We loved the view of the lake!
One suggestion to make the trip even better for other guests in the future would be to have a cooler with drinks and snacks in the Jeep at all times because a ton of driving is involved and it would be helpful to have a cold drink and snacks during the long trip.
Thanks again for organizing this experience of a lifetime for us!

Both hotels were excellent. Sari Konak is in a superb location for visiting all the iconic sights. Our family suite was spacious, newly decorated and very clean. There was a separate room for our son and a kitchenette with ‘fridge and kettle. Good choice at breakfast and served on lovely roof terrace. Great views of Bosphorus. One evening, we caught the commuter ferry to Kadikoy for an evening meal. A great option if there isn’t time to fit in a Bosphorus cruise. Also recommend The Old House restaurant which is very close to the hotel. We were in Istanbul during Ramadan so there was a family atmosphere in the city late into the night.
Esbelli Evi was delightful; a huge cave suite, great character, two bathrooms, sitting room and kitchenette with a fridge well stocked with beers and soft drinks. Private, quiet courtyard with gate to communal areas. Breakfast choice was really good and plenty of outdoor seating. Easy walk into village. Favourite options for dinner were Ziggys (stylish outdoor roof terrace) and Urgup Pide (popular with locals).
Really must mention owner Suha Ersoz and his staff - all of whom are extremely kind and helpful.
All our transfers went smoothly. Our driver and guide (Gaia) in Cappadocia were excellent and our itinerary was fast paced and interesting. Lunch options were great, especially on the river at Ilhara. A highlight for me was spitting a wild tortoise!
Balloon flight with Kapadokya Balloons was well worth the money and well organised.
