Hotel Joaquin is a meticulously clean, stunning replication of what living in Laguna Beach 75 years ago was like, in all it's bohemian elegance. The aesthetics, art, decor, music, period hardware/fixtures, furniture, terracotta tiling, art deco white dry wall, high ceilings with exposed beams, and high-end doors and windows combined with numerous patios, a bar with a view, outside dining, and beautiful gardens, grass areas, and a pool that cascade down the hill towards the ocean, we felt like we were in living Laguna as it was decades ago. This is not the place to come and watch television, but to savor the lack of relentless techno-chatter of our times. Instead, we enjoyed vinyl/LP's and turntables provided in the rooms. Hotel Joaquin is perched back and above some of Laguna's most stunning coves: Shaw, Diver's, Crescent Bay, and Emerald Bay in a beautiful residential neighborhood, while being only blocks from the Laguna Art Museum, Main Beach, and countless tide pools, shops and restaurants. It is also just a short drive from the stunning state park, Crystal Cove, to the north. And the staff could not have been more hospitable, kind, and appropriately available and communicative. We will be back.
