If you are looking to restore and center, Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort & Spa is the place to go. With activities ranging from Yoga to Nature Walks, you can find what best suits you. The food is excellent and the ambience is very mellow.

I love staying over on the north side of the bridge. Hot tub worked great, AC worked great, bed was so comfortable. Everything was clean and good working order. We try to come every year for our anniversary.

I'm very sorry your massage wasn't what you expected. The Spa at Sycamore has been voted--for 14 years straight--the best place for a massage on the Central Coast. Did you speak to the health & wellness manager about it? I wish I had more information...More

LOL! I know what you mean! The hot tub rooms across the bridge do not smell of sulfur. The Spa hot tubs do have a slight smell but through the years it seems they have decreased the rotten egg aroma :)
