After Anaheim and Vegas we felt like we had come home. This is the 4* accommodation we love. Beautiful reception area with heaps of couches and seats just to sit and relax and checkin was a breeze. Very friendly and gave our children (7 & 9) a kite each for the beach, some lollies and from 4-5pm everyday there is free icecream. Kid heaven!!! The views of the beach and pier are spectacular. Our room was lovely and clean and had plenty of space for the small amount of time we were in it. The kids LOVED the TV in the bathroom. The beds were comfortable, rooms were very quiet so we had great sleep. The bathroom had all the amenities you need. We had a view of the pier from our room which was great to watch the ferris wheel at night. We had breakfast daily at the restaurant and the food was beautiful. They catered very well for the kids and gave them activity sheets and crayons every day. We had 2 meals there for dinner and again food was sensational. We ate 2 nights in the casual area just off the lobby and the kids loved sitting on the couch eating. The food again was beautiful. After all the fatty food in Anaheim and Vegas we were craving REAL fresh food and Loews certainly did not dissapoint. We really didn't find a need to eat out at night and we found the prices to be good. All staff are very friendly and love to have a chat which was so nice as we got know a bit about the American people. The kids loved the pool (too cold for me) and we all loved the spa. We were just across the street from the beach and a 5 minute walk to the pier. It was an awesome location. I had a massage which was fantastic and the change rooms have everything you need so you could have a sauna and shower and even dry your bathers. There was free WiFi but only in the lobby. I cannot say anything bad about this place. We absolutely LOVED IT and the kids were very sad to leave. It was nice to go to a luxury hotel like this and they are so welcoming to the kids. We regret that we only had 5 nights here.
