Class of its own

Posted Nov 18, 2014
Pros: 'No expense spared' accommodation and grounds. Exceptional experience. Outstanding value out of season.
Cons: Car parking a bit expensive
Location: All usual 5* hotel amenities. Can walk down to private bay. Golf also.
Stayed here in mid November en route back to UK from LAX airport. Huge grounds overlooking the Pacific, can see the sun rise and the sun set over the sea! Extremely welcoming staff - Lee arranged for us to have a glass of champagne on arrival. Magical after dark with the flame heaters all round throwing light and heat on the outdoor bars and facilities. Very high standard of accommodation and staff.

Great resort...It's probably one of the top 3 resorts in southern California.

Whale and dolphin watching! Amazing!

Posted Nov 10, 2014
Our family really enjoyed it! Sun, Swim, Surf, Scuba, Smores, Brunch, Golf, Massage, and Kids slide/fountain and play area! Great spot for whale watching anywhere on the property. The resort is perched a top the peninsula of Rancho Palos Verdes. Short walk down to the beach. Seperate adult pool. Just outside the city...30 minutes to any spot within LA. A little bit of paradise in LA...resort ambiance felt like it was Hawaii. The rooms were clean and staff was great. I would definitely be coming back!

Weekend getaway with the kids, for our anniversary

Posted Nov 7, 2014
Pros: Mostly the scenic views
What an amazing hotel - excellent experience from start to end of our short weekend getaway. The place is deceptively huge too, plenty to walk around a see - and the views are stunning. Great food at the restaurants too, we ate at Bashi and had room service.

Beautiful View and Location!

Posted Oct 14, 2014
Pros: Beautiful view and some great dining options.
Cons: The rooms are not very sound proof. Next time we will get a 1 bedroom or larger and hopefully not hear our neighbors as much.
Location: You can see Catalina Island from the resort and take a ferry to the island. A short, scenic walk North takes you to a lighthouse. No need to leave.
Love that this resort is only 40 minutes from LAX but feels like it's a world away. The cove is beautiful and we enjoyed watching the dolphins. The main pool area is great for kids and adults but there is a nice adults only pool with a great view if needed. There are lots of dining options, great walking trails and a view from almost every area. Great shopping too. We spent 5 days at this resort and didnt need or have any desire to go anywhere else. We used to take our kids to resorts outside the country several times a year but in recent years haven't felt as comfortable in doing this. This resort made us feel like we had gone to our old resort outside of the country but we can drink the water and don't have to worry about some of the other dangers.

Hotel is beautiful but the staff is not as good. The spa is also really nice but didn't have a good experience with the person that did my treatment

A wonderful experience

Posted Sep 27, 2014
Pros: Everything!!
Cons: The manicure experience in the spa was not good. The young lady was obviously inexperienced and the the result was not up to par.
This was the first visit for my wife and I, and I believe it will not be the last. We needed some where to go and just relax. And this fit the bill 100%. The entire staff was top shelf for sure. It was a wonderful experience!!
