Outstanding resort property with attentive staff. Beautiful ocean vistas from almost everywhere on the property with miles of cliff edge walking trails. Beautiful views of the Caralina Islands and an occasional Humpback Whale!

I enjoyed my stay except for my room not being ready until 4:15 pm and the room service food was below expectations. The room was very clean, and housekeeping services was excellent. Ambiance of the hotel was great.

If you have'nt been you need to go. Beautiful coastal view and surrounding area. Be prepared to relax....which for some of us is a learned behavior. AWESOME!! That being said....theres plenty of things to do. For example, exploring the coastal cliffs and tide pools...or going a half mile north to the R.P.V.

When you take a reservation, you should inform the guest that they are booking at a busy time and most of the hotel facilities will not be available to use. All restaurants were booked on Feb 13 & 14. The spa was booked. The bars had special events and could not be used. Room service took 1 hour 40 minutes.... More

I have been to the LA area numerous times in business and pleasure and never know this beautiful piece of land even existed. The ambiance, solitude, comfort of the accommodations were only exceeded by the beauty of the rugged coastline and magnificence of the sunsets. This will not be my last stay at this wonderful resort.

Came for a conference. The property was gorgeous - plenty of walks to take around the resort. You are removed from the LA area but I didn't feel any need to leave the resort. Top notch restaurants and spa services. Great pools both for families and adult only.
