Cabin Reviews

May 21, 2015
We really enjoyed our stay here. The only real issue we had was the noise we could here after midnight. I know quite hours start @ 10 but I understand ppl still hanging out after that. Also we tried to rent a bike on Sunday just after 5th & were told we couldn't. Bummer being my son wanted to since we were there for his 15th birthday...

Stayed in a adorable one room cabin and had a blast. Just FYI there is an outlet in the cabin so you can bring your coffeemaker-or whatever else. Seems very family oriented and sites are pretty close together. People were pretty much quieted down by 8ish as kids went to bed. Probably wouldn't recommend for a couple looking to get "romantic" but excited to come back and try the airstreams!

great as far as fun stuff to do but the tiny mat of a mattress in the mini cabin is horrible. After a 2 night minimum my back and hip are killing me! My boyfriends back is a mess too. My hip has shooting pain.

Loved our stay so much bought the silent auction for next stay. There were 15 in our group and the kids and grandkids were well entertained and slept like angels

The campground did not enforce its quiet hours and it's no tolerance excessive alcohol policies. Our neighboring cabin was blasting music, drinking excessively and making noise until after midnight. Security responded but did not do anything to stop it. We ended up checking out and going home early. I was also charged for a membership that I never signed up for.

My kids and I had a wonderful time. I usually come here at least 3 times a year. Every time, my experience has been the same, wonderful. Great staff, very clean, and always welcoming.

awesome place for families with kids.

We stayed in a one room cabin. These are comfortable, with a picnic table and BBQ included. Kid friendly campground with space for the kids to run scooters/bikes. Clean bathrooms. However, the cabin floors were very dirty. Our kids dropped toys under the beds and when retrieving them found more than dust. Overall we enjoyed our stay and will return in a month.

This is a family favorite! The only slight draw back is that its so popular, it can feel a bit overcrowded.

All the activities for the kids were great and met our expectations. The cabin was nice but we ended having a leak under the kitchen sink. Also, we were told there would be a bath/shower, but it was just a shower. All staff were friendly and courteous. It was a memorable trip

This was our first time at any KOA. We have 2 young kids, stayed in the deluxe cabin & had a great time! There was so much to do on the grounds & in the area. It was the perfect family vacation & we are definitely coming back again.. To this KOA.

Beautiful campgrounds clean and very organized.deluxe cabin very nice. We expected more activities for the kids. Website showed more organized activities for children. I know it is a little off season. Next time we will come in the summer.

Overall the place was great, the staff were extremely nice. BUT our cabin when we checked in had a putrid rotten smell. The mattresses are extremely poor when you wake up the next morning with a stiff neck and back.

My four daughters, my wife, and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will be returning in a few months to stay a bit longer so we can enjoy all of the amenities. Thanks for a great stay!
Apr 20, 2015
Great for young families. I had teenagers with me and the place was over run with little kids. Small pool for such a large facility. Could use a good cleaning of game room. Overall we had a fun time.
Apr 19, 2015
Very clean. Staff was extremely helpful and polite! Had a great stay and looking forward to returning soon!

I love this place! My son and I come a few times a year with various friends and we always bring our two dogs. This stay was for a few days during spring break with some friends. It was our first time in a deluxe cabin...super nice! Staff are friendly and I appreciate the effort that goes into keeping this location very clean. We are coming back for the 4th of July.

This was our 3rd year in a row that we have visited KOA, staying in a deluxe cabin. The grandkids always have a great time at the pool and jumping on the the big bouncer. The staff is always pleasant and campground is pretty clean. Its a 15 minute drive into Watsonville and 5 minutes to the beach. See you again!

We love Santa cruz Koa. Always a fun time!

The lodges are great. The air conditioning & heaters work well. We did have a toilet problem with it not flushing but someone came and fixed it.
Apr 13, 2015
We had a wonderful stay in your campground. There was so much to do for everyone. We loved our cabin with our own bathroom! Plenty of room to sleep everyone. Everything was so clean. The workers were so friendly. We are already planning our family outing for next year. Thank you for a wonderful place to come.

Great spot, clean, well maintained. Perfect for our group of six families with elementary age children. Something for everyone! We'll be back!

I was astonished with the lack of a first aid kit on the premises. I cut my thumb and went to the front office for first aid but they could only offer band aids or assistance calling an ambulance. Luckily another guest was able to assist with a ride to proper treatment.

Nice campgrounds. The cabin we stayed in was very clean. Pool looked a little dirty and crowded so I didn't let kids go in it. Campsites too close together.
Apr 12, 2015
Not very good location compared to last cabin. Not very private. Graffiti on backs shower doors and sink was clogged for days. Seems different than 2 years ago. Original reservation was made in wrong style cabin. Reservationist seemed confused.
Apr 12, 2015
Great entertainment for kids and love the dog friendly aspect + doggy area
Apr 11, 2015
Great location and staff! Will be staying here again!
Apr 11, 2015
Loved it! Will definitely be back!

You should consider increasing pool temperature in cooler weather. Movie nights during the week would be great.
