Cozy little retreat close to beach. Friendly staff, right across from down town. Covered parking. Short drive from Hearst Castle. Good size room with fire place and large updated bathroom. Menus available for local restaurants.

The only real negative for us was the lack of a safe in the room. We ended up having to lug around our camera and other valuables. Loved the fireplace, room was nice size and the bed comfy. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay there again.

This was our first but certainly not last visit here. We had a great time. The accommodations were top notch,staff extremely helpful. I don't think I will will be traveling to Monterrey much anymore. Wish we had discovered El Colibri Hotel and Spa sooner. Will spread the good news.

I booked a 1 night stay that included a 90 minute massage for my wife. we loved the hotel and massages. I would definitely recommend the El Colibri. It was an easy check-in, the massages were incredible, and the value of what we received, was a great deal. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here.

Nice, quiet, well attended place with an almost overly attentive staff. My wife and I wanted to get away for the weekend and I wanted someplace a little less traveled and not too far from the beach. This certainly fit the bill. 10 min slow walk to the ocean and really didn't hear anything but the waves and ourselves. Talented...

My wife and I planned a trip to Hearst Castle and looked for hotels online that were in the area. I am so glad I stayed in Cambria at the El Colibri because the property was close to downtown shops and food. As we drove up to Hearst Castle (very short drive) we passed other hotels that we saw online...

Having stayed several times in the past with another couple & we were disappointed that the complimentary breakfast was gone (and no free coffee). Even more disappointing was the explanation from the front desk clerk: she said that everyone on Moonstone has a free breakfast, but EC wanted to differentiate itself in the market by not doing that. REALLY!! And...

We have stayed at El Colibri several times. The only negative is that it is not across from the beach like so many other hotels on Moonstone. The plus side is the customer service is excellent, the wine selection is decent and the beds are super comfy. Wish they offered a complimentary breakfast. Many other hotels near do. I'm sure...

El Colibri's focus on comfort and luxury at a very competitive price is what my wife and I look for during oour travels. The room was spacious, quiet, and well-appointed. We're looking forward to our next visit. We plan to bring friends next time.
