We had a great time at this hotel. The service was exceptional. The breakfast buffett was delish!!!! The grounds are beautiful and the segway tour was fun. The staff was friendly.

This is a beautiful property overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We enjoyed a cold clear day there. There are firepits outside to sit around and enjoy the view of the ocean. A glass of wine or hot chocolate would make it even better! Our room had its own firepit on the deck. The room itself was large and well appointed. The bathroom was quite lovely. I felt that the furnishings and bedding were tired. The restaurant is very good, as is the service.

I guess it shouldn't be surprising that this hotel has world-class service. The little touches were really what makes it -- glass of wine upon check in, complimentary coffee in the lounge in the morning, and super friendly staff. Ruben -- the manager on duty when we arrived -- was very helpful in managing a small issue upon check in. This was resolved promptly and professionally and we had no other issues throughout our stay. The concierge was also very helpful with great recommendations for activities and food.

The location is beautiful -- perched overlooking the ocean with the waves crashing in. There is a coastal walking trail that passes right by the hotel along with a really pristine gold course.

We did notice a substantial difference in the rooms that are in the main building as compared to the more distant guest houses. We stayed in the main building and I'm not sure we would have enjoyed our stay as much if we had been more removed from the main building in the guest houses. It's probably ok if the weather is nice but I think it really would be a drag to be so far away when the weather is poor. The hotel is also probably a bit nicer when it's not quite so busy. We were there on a holiday weekend and it did feel a bit crowded. Overall a great stay though and we would definitely recommend this as a weekend destination.

Beautiful rooms. We stayed in the cottages overlooking the golf course. The service was amazing. The amenities were beautiful and clean. The property has tennis courts, a pool and mineral spa.

During our meeting, the hotel accomodated every need and request we had. Our expectations were exceeded beyond. The grounds were stunning and very well kept.
I have never stayed at a property, where staff were this friendly, passionate (and genuine). Food was OK but I never had an opportunity to dine at any of the restaurants.
Would definitely come back for business as well as a vacation.
