“Excellent Experience - can't beat this value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2013

We stayed here during a visit to my in-laws. The resort was exactly as it looked online and we were very satisfied. Impeccably clean and tidy - i couldn't believe how well kept this place is. Dottie at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The location can't be beat, right across the street from the pier and beach. Loved having parking. Not every room has the broad ocean views, but we could see the ocean from our balcony. We will be staying here every time we visit San Clemente from now on - there is just nothing better!

Room Tip: I would suggest asking not to be on the first floor if possible.

Everytime I stay at the San Clemente cove I can always expect a warm and friendly greeting from a familiar face, beautiful spacious rooms and the best location I could ever hope for being right next to the San Clemente Pier. thank you for never dissapointing.

This is a small (23 units) timeshare. Our updated 1 bedroom unit, on the top floor, was one of the smaller ones but had everything we needed for 2 people...small kitchen, very nice shower (soft towels :), and a tiny balcony with a view of the beach and ocean. The staff is great, they have several planned activities. There is an underground parking garage. There is a $10.00 per day resort fee. Nearby (within walking distance) is the famous San Clemente Pier, several restaurants and a convenience store. We were there in late October and it was pretty warm, 72-82 degrees and there is no air conditioning in the unit, but there are ceiling fans and you can get an additional fan at the front desk. Some units have bedrooms windows facing the the interior passageway or no window at all, but ours had one that opened to the outside and gave a nice breeze.

There are trains that run into the late evening hours and then start up again about 5 a.m. If you keep the windows closed, you don't hear them very much, but if your windows are open, they may wake you up. The unit itself is pretty soundproof, we didn't hear any of our neighbors....just the train.

Room Tip: Be sure to check the window configuration in the bedroom, especially if you are concerned about havi...

We exchanged our week to stay here in early May. The place is 80's dated but it's clean and comfortable. The location is excellent. The hot tub and sauna are great amenities although small in size. We had room 111 - which was right next to the office. We had a peek a boo view of the ocean and our balcony got some sun in the mid afternoon. Being close to the office was okay - not as bad as I thought it could be in terms of noise. We had great meals in town at South of Nick's and Vince and Tina's Deli (take out Lasagna - YUM). We brought back some Italian sausage and cooked it on the BBQ at sunset - very nice. The Cove was a great place to stay. We will definitely come back. It had great access to surfing at the pier and T Street.

Great place to visit when you want to kick your feet up on the balcony facing the ocean and just breath. Rooms are small, but with two people - it definitely works. Great views, and the pizza from the restaurant below is awesome!!

I exchanged this for my Carlsbad Seapointe Condo(where I never stayed), and always wanted to explore this area even though living in San Diego. The 1 bedroom was very simple and spacious including a nice gas fireplace and an ocean view including the famous pier. One can hear the ocean waves when tide is in. San Clemente is more old California, has some neat neighborhood cafes and restaurants and includes a lot of independent vendors. The bigger malls are close by. In close driving distance to John Wayne Airport(25 miles) along with Dana Point, Laguna and Newport Beach all north along Route One. I found the staff very friendly and willing to help. Very basic supplies in the rooms, however, they are willing to find whatever you need at the frontdesk including extra blankets or binoculars. I would definitely go back again to explore.

The weather in January went from 50 - 75 degrees during the week, so need to layer when visiting the southern California coast.

We stayed for a long weekend in January and the weather was sunny and beautiful. My kids told their friends that we were going back to our beach house (love it)! We were greeted by Cindy at check-in and she gave the kids a little goodie bag which they thought was fantastic. The room was clean and we could see the ocean from the balcony. We recognized many of the staff from our stay here before and it was nice to see their smiling faces again. Some of the highlights of the trip were seeing dolphins on the beach trail, going to the Ocean Institute, and seeing whales from the Dana Point Headlands Trail. We will definitely be back to this resort.
