My son and service dog stayed at the Casablanca Inn for Christmas eve, 2015. I love the coziness of the resort! Our room was lovely with a wrap around deck and view, very clean with full kitchen. The staff was so friendly and helpful and we were so happy to learn the history of this Santa Cruz treasure. We can't... More

Family tradition, proximity, charm....these keep bringing my family back to Casablanca. We had a wonderful experience with a suite like a summer home. Ocean views and access to the beach and wharf could not be better. Reasonable rates.

Very friendly and fun staff. We didn't order any food so we can't rate it. Small place inside with seating outside and seemed to attract people of all ages. Great kamikaze shots!

The lovely building with a deck overlooking the volleyball nets on Main Beach was almost empty for Friday happy hour… not a good sign. I ordered a tall mixed drink and the bartender charged me for a double, didn't offer us a menu when we asked about food, and never asked us if we wanted another drink, so we didn't.

The location near the boardwalk, the view, the charm and the history, and it's being pet friendly with large rooms.

This is a great restaurant with knock-south views of the ocean. Went here for an anniversary dinner and it didn't disappoint.

The Casablanca Bistro is no more, replace by Sawasdee Thai restaurant. So no great cheese sandwich, but the lunch specials are reasonably priced and pretty good. My favorite was the spring rolls.

After spending the morning walking around Santa Cruz boardwalk we needed somewhere to eat. This place offered more than a greasy chip option and the service was great. Club sandwiches for a brunch option whilst sitting on the balcony overlooking the volleyball tournaments on the beach. Really lovely little place. Small and quaint but offered just what we needed.

We had a wedding rehearsal luncheon for 60 here, upstairs in a very nice room with panoramic vistas. It was one of those beautiful Santa Cruz days which made the good food taste even better. Afterwards we all prowled the Boardwalk and had great fun.
