If you golf maybe? They also have tennis. But if you are a tourist. It's too far away from anything, the rooms are nothing special. The pools are nice. It's 20 min drive to the beach without traffic in the winter. The bed was lumpy. The place had extra fees for everything so add on at least $60 per night to the base fee on Expedia for paying and "resort fee". Never going there again.

Pros: Newport Beach Area
Cons: Beds were hard and sheets & pillows felt cheap.
Location: Area was the best part
Nothing Special. Older, hallway smelled, Everything cost WAY too much.. it takes more than just putting a name on the front door.

Hyatt is one of my favorites. Beautiful grounds, friendly staff, kid friendly, and close to Balboa Island & Fashion Island. The rooms are starting to show some wear & tear but still very nice.

Posted Jan 6, 2017
Pros: Restaurants and staff were really good.
Cons: eves drops and excess water management, new paint in the outside and shuffle board and corridors would be nice.
it was mostly like a resort than a hotel, lotsa swimming pool and Golf facility. unfortunately the time we were there it was rainy and all the carpet in the corridors were wet and water was leaking in the walkways from the eves. rooms were nice and a good balcony. Main building that was attached to the lobby seems to be well maintained but the other building needs an update.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is close to the beach; to town; great food. The only problem we had was with the parking. They are going to charge $27/night to park pretty far away from your room. The parking lot is darn inconvenient and for that reason, it should be free!!!!

This hotel would be perfect with the exception of the parking fee's and resort fee. After you've booked your trip and paid its hard to then turn around and pay again over 1/3rd of your whole trip in parking and resort fee's. My own fault I guess for not researching better but $25 a day resort fee and another $27 a day to self park? A bit much.

Pros: The staff were very accommodating and helpful.
Cons: Service from the bar in the outside terrace area - we waiting 15 minutes for someone to come and had to go to the front desk to get help.
Location: We went to the Christmas lights boat parade which was beautiful. There's lots of good restaurants and shopping close.
The only negative things were that we got locked out of our villa and had to stand in the cold for 20 minutes while someone figured out how to get the door open and the heater in our room did not work and there were no extra blankets so we were quite cold.
