I took my two children here for a two day Christmas getaway. We were greeted by a warm, friendly staff who were very willing to tell us all about the hotel. There were surfboards displayed all throughout the lobby as part of an auction of Surfers who were raising money for autistic children to learn to surf. Strand Beach outside was filled with surfers and there is a rich history around these parts. The hotel boasts a fabulous outdoor restaurant on a sunny patio overlooking the ocean - I think it is called 360. Spectacular idea!
Kids can participate in the hotel's Ambassadors of the Environment program which offers various projects and "explorations" - check it out. Through this program we went on a 9:00 a.m. walk with hotel guides of the garden and the children tasted some of the organic vegetables and pumped the "well."
We also bought tickets to go with hotel guides on a nearby whale watching trip leaving from Dana Point Harbor which was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. There were dolphins everywhere and the children loved it. The guides gave us a CD with pictures from the trip.
This was the most memorable trip for all of us. It just could not have been any better. This has made me a devotee of Ritz Carlton. Yes, it is expensive. But it is worth it even if it is just for two days.
