This is a serene experience...just don't go while big events like weddings occurring if you're trying to get quiet get-away. This is not a hotel for families in my opinion. The rooms are not as sound proof as I think they should be.

There is a beautiful paved coastal path from the hotel through the golf course. Only 2-3 miles. May extent further but I’m afraid I don’t know.

This is a 5 star hotel on one of the only beaches in the Bay Area. $30 a day may be "unconscionable" in Toledo, but it's actually quite reasonable for a luxury resort.
