We had a party of many meet at this super location resort. Generally was a good experience but do need to mention that the restaurants ( all) did let the experience down. Meals at breakfast, lunch, and dinner were set back by very bad timing...More

We did not use the beach, although I think they have a shuttle. Resorts that have a beach are hotels like the Ritz Carlton in Dana Point.

Only issue is that they do sometimes have a lot of kelp on the beach, which they are not allowed to remove by law.
