    This hotel was very nice inside and out. The view of the ocean was hands down a highlight. The staff are all welcoming and friendly. Most everything you would need is within a walking distance. Everything was clean and well taken of.

    We do not have a shuttle from the resort to LAX. The service we recommend is Santa Barbara Airbus, which picks up close to the resort. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Thank you!
