Breakfast buffet was one of the better ones. The gym and...

Absolutely stunning grounds, beach and amenities. We spent most of our time touring the surrounding beaches but this place is as nice as it gets. If you're from Europe and can't make it all the way to California, you can come hear and get a very similar experience!!
