Leilani is my hair stylist...she is wonderful & very personable! She gives me a consultation before cutting my hair & explains everything to me so I'd be comfortable. I love my cut & style once she's finished! Thank you, Leilani :)

The spa is large with expansive common areas and well stocked bathrooms and lounge. The service was professional - not over the top though!

The best spa facility. The saltwater jacuzzi on the men's side is amazing. The staff is extremely attentive. The relaxation room is wonderful with their dried fruit snacks, nuts & different types of infused waters. The trickling water fountain in the relaxation room is quite nice. Expensive, so try and make it a day of it and use the facilities... More

The Spa at Pelican Hill is a very nice luxury spa to unwind and de-stress for a birthday treat. The whirlpool bath is exceptionally large and spacious you wouldn't have trouble finding your own spot in the pool. They have enough lounge chairs to go around as well to relax on. The steam room nicely cycles the steam around so... More

My wife was a massage therapist for many years and usually doesn't find spa treatments worth the hype or price. Until now, that is. After a grueling 10 days dealing with the in-laws she signed up for the Body Gelato treatment. The staff was attentive, courteous and well trained. She was impressed with Eva, whose touch was deft. Not only... More

Came here to enjoy a couple’s massage for our anniversary weekend. While the grounds and spa area are beautiful you pay a hefty price for mediocre service. When we checked in my husband was immediately taken back to the ‘men’s side’. I, however, waited close to 10 min in the check area which doesn’t have a proper seating/waiting area before... More
