We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights; loved it and the area. The hotel looks down on a beautiful coastline and you can walk almost anywhere you want to go, (if you are in reasonably good shape.) We saw dophins, a seal and a whale from the beach. The rooms are not huge but the staff was great and the Spa services were awesome. They have two pools which were fine. If you are looking for an economy vacation, this hotel is not for you. They charge $22/day parking and the food is predictably semi-overpriced. The breakfast buffet is extensive and very good; we had dinner one night which was above average. I understand some of the other reviewer's frustrations with the property, but it is not 5 star which is where everything should be perfect.Stay away from El Torita down at the harbor unless you are into cold,very average food and enjoy being surrounded by people drinking heavily. RJ's is a cute breakfast and lunch place. We ate at Tommie's in San Clemente which is an adorable 50's diner with great food. Their chocolate cake is divine. We would absolutely stay here again.
