This was my first stay at the Grand Pacific Palisades Resort and I think I will be returning here many times over future years! The staff were all very friendly and helpful, especially front office manager Sean Herriott. I truly enjoyed the ocean sunsets with my complementary rum and coke given to me poolside. The flower fields were just beginning...

The hotel was very clean and accommodated my family very well. We received a complimentary suite upgrade with a kitchen! Although, our view of the ocean was obstructed, we still had a nice room! The family pool was great! The hotel/resort was very clean/well kept! The hotel staff was very attentive as our phones in the room were not working,...

We were very surprised to find there was a FREE shuttle service which provided transportation to restaurants and local attractions. This service is very beneficial to guests because there is no need to have an automobile while staying within the local area. The shuttle drivers make traveling in the area a comfortable experience. One particular driver named Steve was especially...

I've never had a hotel remember details before! The pack and play was all set up for my son so I could put him down right away for his nap (which we all needed for sanity's sake), and the rooms are so spacious and clean that I felt comfortable letting my other two children just run and explore in our...
