Easily one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. They make you feel so welcome. The design is impeccable. Everything is so thoughtful, from the activities to morning coffee delivery. Pool was beautiful, as are the surrounding beaches. I will be going back.

I’ll be back!!! Thank you!
What a lovely stay it was! The aesthetics, the food, the staff, the views, the list goes on, and on; but this is a perfect place to get away with your person or people. A round of applause for the staff. Thank you for making the stay so comfortable and being so helpful (especially walking the umbrella down to the beach for us). The intimacy, and peace offered here is second to none, and I can’t wait to visit again soon.

The hotel is beautiful and the staff is super sweet. Great location too. Unfortunately we had a very noisy room. This hotel needs to put up windows to block the street noise. Also Expedia offered a wrong description of our room. I paid extra for an “ocean view” that only has an ugly & noisy street view “

What a beautiful, unique, beach-side retreat. The interior decoration is fresh and new, the beds were so comfortable, the coffee service was amazing, and the restaurant / bar were phenomenal. The location can't be beat, it's a short walk from one of the most beautiful beaches and coves in Laguna.
