We had a four-night stay at Magellan's Passage in the R.L.J. Room on the top floor. This room featured a two-story suite, with the bed on the main level facing the mountain and a loft area on the top floor facing the ocean. The ocean view from the private balcony was stunning! The bathroom was spacious and featured a large...

We were greeted at the door by the staff and they continued to be helpful during our stay. The views from the sea-facing rooms were gorgeous and the property itself is comfortable and located just a few blocks from the beach. Also heated tile floors in the bathroom were amazing!

The staff were fantastic from Samuel who met us as we parked and saw us through most of our stay to the others we came in touch with. Wonderful nautical theme from owners passionate about cruise...
