We have just returned from 9 nights at Sugar Ridge. We chose Sugar Ridge because it was a small boutique hotel and would therefore never seem crowd, which it never did. We stayed on a B&B basis which did allow us to go out in the evening. The hotel is located on the west coast, off the main road between...

I stayed here for a business trip and enjoyed my stay. Although Sugar Ridge is not on the water, they compensate for it with their lovely grounds and frequent shuttles to the beach. The beach is a very short drive away, in total it is around a mile away. I did the walk and my only suggestion is to not...

We stayed at Sugar Ridge for 2 nights in February, so it was peak season. We would not stay there again BUT must hasten to say that is not because this is a bad hotel, its just a personal thing. Rooms were very good and so were the staff. However, we were unaware that the rooms in this hotel are...

Wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in February 2015 for the Aveda Pure Privilege Program reward she got. From the VC Bird Airport, it's a 30-min US$24 cab ride away, and we were greeted by the polite friendly staff and welcome drinks. We stayed at the room #2 which was at the lower level. We still got a...

My wife and I have just returned from a week at Sugar Ridge. We stayed B&B, which suited us very well, as we like to experience different restaurants at night. The Breakfasts were very nice, with something for everyone and unusually these days was served to you at your table. We ate once at Carmichaels, which was very good and...

Only 2 drawbacks. It's not on the beach but they have 2 great pools and offer a shuttle to nearby beaches. Wifi is unreliable. We traveled with another couple; it would have been hard for our rooms to be further apart. Our reservations was made through Aveda so the resort might not have received the message that we were traveling...
