          This hotel is located in a beautiful hill at La Jolla. From our room we had the most beautiful view of the beach and the pool. The food and the service were great. The hotel is good dog friendly (always treats on the concierge area).

          Sometimes the pool gets a bit crowded but never excessive like larger hotels... even when it's a bit busy it's always a relaxed place to be..the servers keep you happy with food and drink!
          Hello, I will be coming from Boston for 4 nights to celebrate my 50th in secrecy alone. Not that I don't look every day of it 😉. I am a social person and would enjoy the sun if it's out. Can you smell the seals from this hotel? How much is an uber/ shuttle to Del Mar or a beach? I don't mind a walk. Just looking for the right balance of fun and beauty. Do you recommend? I enjoy live music and hidden gems. Many thanks.
