  • This is a great place to go spend a day at the pool, have a private event or meeting, or to go and take a tour of the Marion Davies House. The tour of the house is awesome and very historical. The tour guides were great and gave a lot of fantastic information about the historical significance of the house and the area. Come check it out and spend some time in the sun at the beach. You can not go wrong!
  • Our experience here was that the beach area is clean and beautiful, that the Annenberg house is spacious, that the playground nearby is lovely, and that the restaurant is, too. The last has vegan options, which we like, and there were plenty of bikers, walkers, and skateboarders along the boardwalk. It is not a place you can get to via public transit, but is just a short Uber away from downtown Santa Monica train station. We will go again and recommend others to go. I'm giving this a 3 star review only because I felt that the guide for our family beach walk was condescending toward my young child, treating her more like a nuisance than a person. She did show her some ways to use our tour binoculars, but my daughter and I ended up leaving the nature walk early and will not be attending one again. I do not recommend the beach/nature walks to other people. There was also a photographer there taking photos of my child every time she raised her binoculars, assumedly for publicity, but no one informed me of this, nor were I or my daughter asked if we wanted them taken, even as a courtesy. This place needs to work on its people skills.
  • I was there for the first annual Santa Monica Polar Bear Swim. It was fun for all ages (1.5 - 77) and well organized. Ocean temperature was 59 F and pool temperature was 91! S'mores and hot cocoa and games for everyone.
  • Really nice place to take the family. Fun things to play on. Nice restrooms. Safe parking. Right close to the ocean but far enough away to not have to worry. Fun fun place !
  • We love love love the Annenberg Community Beach House the photos show the joy and glee on my students and childrens face says it all. The best kept secret in Santa Monica. So here's my tip on how to fully enjoy yourself when you decide to go. Go early I mean whilst the rest of LA is sleeping we arrive by 8.30am then you can park close, easy to unload the car. Secondly take lunch with you because children get hungry i mean really hungry so pack the igloo with drinks, snacks real food and munchies. Finally take two lots of swim wear one for the pool a second fit when they want to head to the beach. Finally it's all the comfort once your there with your own sun bed, umbrella little table, the games room when there done with swimming, the art gallery and Marion Davies guest house for those who wish to be further educated!! Hope to see you there we normally go on Monday it's half price!!!!

Where to stay in Santa Monica

Santa Monica's hotels range from luxury to boutique, offering more than 3,500 rooms located at or near the waterfront. Staying at a beachfront resort can cost a bundle, so if you have a limited budget in mind, consider accommodations away from the water. Hotels just a few blocks from the ocean offer comfortable rooms with free Wi-Fi and cable TV at a fraction of the cost charged by their beachfront equivalents. For an even more affordable stay, consider one of the city's inns or motels.
