Stayed here for two nights. It was an awesome experience. The boat had lots of room and we sat on the back to eat and enjoy snacks as we watched everyone on other boats go by. The staff is very friendly. You can take food to BBQ on the dock instead of eating at a restaurant. The morning breakfast is...

We had a nice cozy intimate night on board the yacht. They send over a tasty breakfast basket with fruit and muffins.I got a great deal through a living social type website, but would be happy to pay full price to enjoy the luxurious get away in the future.

The boat we stayed on was called the Ranita, We were very dissapointed,it smelled like mildew, and it was not very clean..Airfreshners were placed in the master bedroom along with a candle in the living areas..Sorry but they only masked the problem and made the smell worse...The boat needed a good deep cleaning. For the cost of the stay, we...

We are very sorry to hear that this guest did not enjoy her stay. We pride ourselves in providing a positive and unique experience to all of our guests. While we are confounded by the claim that there is mold everywhere in the boat, we really wish during her 2 night stay that she had alerted our staff of her...

I bought this deal way back in Septenber, and made my reservation for my 7th Wedding Anniversary, January 12, 2012. All things DO come to those who wait. I was so excited I was ALMOST afraid I would be let down. Fortunately, it was everything I had hoped for and more. I stayed on the Crown Jewel, a 50's retro-style...

We had a great time on the Perfect Landing ~ everything was clean and neat. Beautiful weather. We parked in the PF Chang's parking lot for $24 over night as it was closer to the dock. Upon arriving to our car the next morning, it had been broken into and personal items taken - nothing of great value as we...

We went for my husbands birthday, one night during the week. We stayed on the Obla de Obla da. I would suggest going on a weekday if you can, as it was very peaceful and quiet. The water was calm so the boat didn't rock very much. The boat was very nice, and we enjoyed sitting on the front deck...

Definitely not your typical hotel. We stayed on a large boat with another couple from our family. We each had our own sleeping "quarters" and our own very small bathroom. The amenities were a bit sparse, but it was fun to have our own boat for the day. We ate a few meals on the back of the boat in...

If you're looking for something a little different, try these floating hotel rooms. We love this place not only for the fun boat accommodations, but the location at the Shoreline Village in Long Beach. Nice restaurants like PF Changs, Gladstones, Yard House and several others are within walking distance. A yummy continental breakfast basket is delivered to you in the...

I booked this trip as a surprise for my partners 50th birthday. We stayed on the the Obla Da Obla De for two nights. On first impressions the yatch was a lot smaller than expected, however, everything was exceptionally well thought out, clean and fitted to a high standard. Every space was well utilised and beautifully laid out. We really...

I stayed on the Obla Da Obla De yacht for 1 night. This is their premium boat and has Direct TV onboard, 3 TVs onboard and a DVD player, which they provide over 10 decent films to watch in case you haven't brought your own with you. The boat is comfortable and has air-con in the bedroom, it's a luxurious...
