My husband and i stayed there for our anniversary/mother's day weekend. The hotel was very clean, the pool side was great and the location spectacular, right across from the beach. The staff was very friendly and it was easy to get around.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 9 February 2017 via mobile

The location of this hotel is amazing with beautiful ocean views even from my room (see picture) which was listed as "partial view." Easy walking access to a brand-new, high-end outdoor shopping mall with lots of food options. Walk just a bit more and you are at the pier, and Main Street with a ton more shopping and eating options!...

Spent 6 days at this hotel. Every aspect of the stay was excellent. Would highly recommend staying here if in the area. One of it's biggest assets is the quality of the staff who all made us feel very welcome. Special mention for Kevin in Shades bar who mixes a great cocktail.

Hotel was missing the common needed things in life like electrical outlets for laptops and cell phones. One should not have to put cell phones in the bathroom at night so they can charge. Our room had a weird musty type smell. Staff was over the top, excellent marks for them, they made the stay not the room.

Very nice, clean and beautiful resort. Great location along PCH. Entrance is around the back with no self parking option. You have to drop your vehicle with Valet and then pay a premium if you want your vehicle back, which I'm sure you do... During our visit, there was some construction going on. Valet made me park my own vehicle...

Dear Kevin F, Thank you for your review. We apologize for any inconvenience encountered on our valet drive. As we race to complete our expansion project (adding the new tower, new pool and MORE parking!), we are unfortunately having to be very creative with our traffic patterns on our main drive. Delays are more a result in this congestion on...

the hotel is very nice and well run. The bar atmosphere is excellent. parking is under construction until July 2017. It is a bit slow to get your car. All else was very classy and the service was courteous.

This is a very nice hotel, but what makes me give if 5 stars is the wonderful Staff. It's rare to find a hotel where everyone is the utmost professional and courteous (and not because you're staying in the Presidential Suite). No matter who I had interacted with (cleaning staff, front desk, Valet, Bell-staff, restaurant staff), everyone was cheerful, courteous...

We choose this hotel on a whim; it wound up being an excellent choice! Everyone from the valet, front desk, room service, pool side service and housekeeping were friendly and outgoing.
