The timeshare is conveniently situated close to freeways and to Pacific Coast Highway with a host of restaurants, boutques, big bag shopping and supermarkets, including the wonderful Gelsons. The resort units are tastefully furnished with barbecue pits and lounge chairs on the balconies, inside are full sized refrigerator and stove, master bedroom (Sea Captain unit) and spa tub in the...

We stayed here as a time share swap, and thoroughly enjoyed the room and location. However, what made the place excellent is - as you'd imagine - the people. Not only was the Monday morning, 9am briefing informative, but the person giving it (sorry, I do not have individual names, unfortunately) was quite well informed and directed us to Salt...

Stayed for only one night, but definitely worth a re-visit for a longer stay. Had a wonderful room on 2nd floor with view of ocean, porch with table and chairs and BBQ grill. There is some noise from traffic on Pacific Coast Highway, but definitely not bothersome to me. Clean and neat facility, thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend highly.

We really like this place and come back to it for a timeshare week every spring. It is more like a home, with a kitchen, barbecue on the balcony and separate bedroom with a king size bed. They have free bike rental and several easy rides to the beach and tourist shopping. The resort is close to theaters and restaurants...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We love the feedback. And it's very helpful for you to mention (to those looking to stay with us) that the non-ocean facing units do have the advantage of being quieter! We'll see you next year, Amanda Burgess, General Manager

We traded for this place and found it to be wonderful. The staff is very friendly and always helpful. Free bike rentals, movie rentals and pool room. Spacious rooms with a jacuzzi tub make this a great place. Right across the road from Capistrano beach......however there are much better beaches not too far away

Reviewed 22 April 2015

I was a little taken aback by the pedestrian nature of the accommodations. This is not resort lodging like many timeshare properties. If you want clean linens, you strip your beds and gather your towels, bag them, leave them outside your door, and clean ones are delivered. Nothing quite like coming home after a long day and having to make...

Joe, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you and your family took advantage of the free bikes, it really is the best way to experience the area.

enjoyed a week via a timeshare exchange. Fantastic accommodations. Spacious lodgings overlooking the ocean. A plus was a porch with a gas grill which we used two times while enjoying our sunsets and wine! Very clean in unit and staff constantly seen cleaning the halls, mopping the floors in the hallway and laundry areas. Would highly recommend as an exchange!

We arrived at 9:45pm to a sopping wet floor in the bathroom (yuck), grey foul smelling water coming up from the drain of the bathroom sink, a disgusting scrub brush (to think it was used to clean the room!) and not a shred of toilet paper in the unit. We got a backside unit which was very out of date...
