Stylish hotel in a fantastic location close to the pier. I would recommend staying in the building where the swimming pool resides. $30 daily resort fee is the only negative on a great hotel. A trip to the Funk Zone is a must !

Brenda Mills at Hotel Californian Majorelle spa is the best! I had the skinceutical facial peel and left glowing. She has calm, nurturing energy. Using the steam room before, is relaxing and gets the skin ready for the facial. The spa facility is beautiful.
