Greeted warmly by valet staff and checked in. "You don't mind stairs do you ?" "Um no…" "So go down there". After a few tries we found our Villa. A bit musty smelling but big bed, huge bathroom, 2 TVs, separate closets etc. Luckily we were on the second floor overlooking the pool. …so people at the pool didn't look straight into our bedroom.The Villas on ground floor were not so lucky. If you are into privacy this is not the place for you. Unfortunately a "political figure" was staying in the next room so when we went to sunbake on our balcony the "Secret Service" were permanently stationed 10 feet away. We ate at the Hotel on the first night and all staff left us alone on the balcony by 11pm. Yep closed bar, everyone went home. So we ventured out the next night, dinner, comedy club, and yes when we got back at 12pm…our hotel was closed. Great restaurants abound in Las Jolla however most venues seem to close at 11pm. If you want a quiet life it is fabulous..
