Had a great 4 night stay. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Pool's were great and grounds immaculately kept (lots if hummingbirds in hibiscus). Had breakfast on 2 days which was delicious, especially Bradley's omlettes! Only comments were that there is very little hanging space in the bathroom for wet towels etc and that it was quite difficult to pay...

Our room was very nice. The hotel was a bit dated and the service was very mediocre. The pool was nice, but on the small side. My son ordered a club sandwich off of the pool menu and it was in a box, cold with what looked like raw bacon. I asked the server when it was made and he...

We just stayed at this hotel last weekend. We initially had a room with a view over the highway which I was not thrilled about - but we were able to get moved to a better room the next day. The first night there were three weddings going on - each appeared beautiful. It is a very beautiful location to...

This is the best hidden treasure in CA! Great views of the ocean and beach as well as great accommodations and cuisine. We have been coming here for over 10 years. It has gotten a bit expensive with both required valet parking as well as resort fees! Those fees add up quickly, especially for families.

We love this resort. Very family friendly. The restaurant is great for breakfast but go to the Marina for dinner. Loved the views from our room. We took some wonderful walks along the Marina and Doheny. Two double beds was a bit tight for a family but not a big deal.

Right on the beach with beautiful views. The buffet breakfast had a huge variety of fresh tasty things. The pool is very family orientated but a clean, nice pool with great service.

We are Marriott premiere guests and they gave us a nice upgrade when we arrived. Front desk staff was friendly and efficient. The views from the room were gorgeous, harbor one window, pool the other. The resort fee is $25 and then tack on $32 for mandatory valet. Ouch! During routine times the valet is prompt, but during checkout/checkin you...
