We stayed here for my husband's birthday. We live somewhat locally so I'd describe this as a "staycation". I can't complain about much of anything- thus the 5 star. The room, though a little small, was clean, quiet, the beds were comfy and we had a nice view. The A/C was a little noisy- but we sleep with a noise machine so it didn't bother us. I had requested a king bed/ocean view- but I was informed both in my reservation and on the phone there was no guarantee I'd get it because they were pretty booked. We did get doubles- with a single bed it would probably feel a little roomier. Valet is not optional and there are resort fees- but this is not out of line with any other hotel in the area. (And they are clearly stated on the reservation).Plus the resort fee includes bike rental, boogie boards and other things you normally wouldn't get. Location is perched on a lovely grassy hill with ocean views. Dana Point is a short walk (but down a big flight of stairs) away. Pools are small but nicely equipped with comfy chairs and lounges. Service was very good. We left a nice bottle of wine in our cab on the way to dinner. I called the hotel from our restaurant in a panic and 5 minutes later we had our bottle back from the cabbie.
We'll certainly return...I wish we had booked a longer stay. The nice ocean breeze and relaxing location made leaving more difficult than I expected.
