Reviewed 16 June 2014

From the sound of the waves to the smell of the see breeze, this is the most relaxing resort in Orange County. Just steps from the beach with a beautiful restaurant and pool. The staff here is always so friendly and welcoming. The resort has this amazing "beachy" feel to it. The restaurant is beautiful and open to the ocean, there isn't a bad table in the place. It is a very laid back, relaxing environment.

Room Tip: The lower the floor you are on the louder the sound of the waves. They can get very loud at night if...

The oceanfront location is to die for.....any closer your getting wet! But honestly, the best part is the service...the people anticipate your needs very well! A bellman in the parking area saw me with an ice bucket looking around....he found me and guided me to the ice.....simple yes, but how many would seek you out to help? This is the attitude throughout....over the top no attitude...pro's. We will be back for many more anniversary's. Thank you for making our time so memorable! Ken in the Splash's restraunt is such a treasure....loves his job, and is always smiling.....Makes a great martini as well.....Til next time....all the best

Room Tip: Rooms on 7th floor oceanfront can see the rays swim by in the surf line....& the dolphins 50'...

No A/C. Surprising and never saw this on the website. If you don't want the noise of a fan or the ocean (and not everyone in my family did), you will be very hot. The room, however, was lovely.

We checked in early expecting to spend the day at the pool which overlooks the ocean. Unfortunately, there was a group visiting that were very lewd, overserved, loud, and highly sexual in the pool. All families with kids had to leave based on their behavior. When security was called, they did not ask the group to leave although they informed the manager on duty that they did. I am not sure this is an appropriate resort for families if the "Jersey Shore" crowd is a normal client. This was very disappointing.

We stayed at this hotel in the 1990's and recently decided to return for a two day stay. It really has remained an outstanding facility over the years. Everything about this property is exquisite. The rooms are elegant and clean. The grounds are impeccable. The views are to die for. I have stayed in many beach side hotels over the years, but this one seems to capture the essence of what a beach resort should be. It exudes serenity and relaxation. I literally felt that I could just sit on our balcony and enjoy the magnificent views without doing anything else. I usually try to include other activities when I travel such as golf and shopping and sightseeing. I didnt need to plan any other activities during our stay here. Everything you need is right here. There is not one area on this property that is not enjoyable. The pool area is wonderful. The food at Splashes Restaurant is excellent. The service is excellent. The hotel staff are very eager to accommodate. All in all this resort is one of my favorites. I highly recommend this hotel to those that want to just escape all of the hustle and bustle of life and relax in a wonderful setting.

The room is great. The view is outstanding - if you like watching dolphin play in the ocean. The staff is beyond friendly and helpful. The amenities in the room are awesome - robes, slippers, fireplace, balcony, soaking tub, chocolates. I just wish my family was here with me, but I would bring them here in a heart beat.

From the minute you enter the secluded courtyard there's a sense of overwhelming serenity and peace. The beautiful facilities, delicious food and outstanding personalized / doting service make this resort a one-of-a kind facility. The rooms are beautifully appointed, the views are fantastic, the facilities are well appointed (amazing pool and Jacuzzi) and the staff is beyond wonderful. They define excellent customer service. I look forward to my next visit. In the meantime, I'll keep dreaming about my two days there.
