This property has just finished a major revamp and it shows! Beautiful decor, clean and spacious rooms, tidy spacious and well stocked kitchens, huge bathrooms, an amazing bed and a beautiful view of the ocean from the private deck that has a bbq. The fact that the highway is on front of the hotel doesn't even affect a thing. Very... More

This was an Anniversary get away booked by my husband on Booking.com billed as a regular hotel. First impressions: Very nice location right across from the beach with easy access to the beach. As soon as we checked in the sales pitch for the Time Share portion kicked in. After we squirmed our way out of that we got to... More

We spent 3 nights with some friends in a 2 bedroom suite. It was exceptionally clean when we checked in. Plenty of room for 4 adults. The kitchen was nicely stocked tho no oven. The grill on the porch can be used as one. The beds were comfy and that bathrooms large. All the 2 bedrooms face the mountain not... More

We checked in for a 6 night stay as part of an exchange with Interval International since they didn't have any available properties in Anaheim for Disney vacation. We were told it was one of their premier hotels and a short drive to Anaheim. Upon checkin, we were informed that there will be construction going on between 9am to 7pm... More

We checked in for a 3 night stay using Diamond Resort Intl points. We were warned of construction noise due to remodeling. Nope- nothing is happening to bring the condition up to the quality it should be as a Diamond Property. Our room overlooked the ocean yes, but the car traffic drowns the wave sounds. Without a doubt the worst... More

We spent a week here enjoying some time off. The room was on the 2nd floor facing the ocean, and while I had read complaints about the noise from the PCH and trains going by, we didn't have any noise issues at night or during the day. If our windows were open we did hear the trains, but they weren't... More

Old furniture from the 80's that was stained. None of the furniture was comfortable. It was extremely uncomfortable for a 7 day stay.  Concierge was useless. When we told them we couldn't find the pool, they said'did you read the map'. We said yes, so she pointed and said there is one that way and down there.  Room was not... More

We had traded for 4 rooms with II and were very pleased. We had beautiful views of the ocean and saw dolphins and seals and wonderful sunsets. The rooms were clean. The staff were very nice to us. We never were bugged with any sales pitch. We would go back.
