Positive Reviews

Pacific Coast at Its Best

You can't beat the location, just off the Pacific Coast Highway with ocean views as far as the eye can see. The hotel shuttle runs to a private beach every fifteen minutes until 9:00 pm. For those who want to explore, there are several beautiful beaches nearby, including Laguna Beach.

Gorgeous Grounds

The scenery around the resort is breathtaking, with flowing gardens that are meticulously maintained. Guests say the resort has a truly tropical feel to it.

Superior Staff

Staff here treat guests like royalty and many travelers say they've never felt so pampered. Well-trained, gracious and professional, the staff gets high marks for providing exceptional service.

Negative Reviews

Pool Gets Crowded

The pool area here can feel a bit claustrophobic when the resort is full of guests. Staff will make sure everyone has a lounge chair but some guests would prefer a quieter atmosphere and a little more room to spread out.

Not All Views are the Same

While the resort is beautiful, not all room views are the same. Some rooms have sweeping ocean views but others offer only a glimpse. Other rooms overlook the golf course.

Great for Conference, Not for a Romantic Getaway

The hotel is popular for business conferences and events. If you're staying here to relax and get away from it all you may be disappointed to find that the resort can get pretty busy, especially when there are multiple events going on.
