I don't have much negative reviews but... Maybe I had high expectations ... so I arrived to the hotel pretty late 5pm after having a long trip but unfortunately I had to wait 30 min for my room ... which was facing to a parking lot and with bad smell of food . I asked the front desk to change... More

This is a 5 star resort at it's best. The service is first rate as is the hotel itself. My room looked out towards the golf corse and the south. It was so quite that I could just sit and relax on the balcony all day. The room is what you should expect from a St. Regis property, the bed... More

The resort decor looks like someone (not a professional) went in and bought things from Big Lots or Ikea. The furniture is very tacky and the paintings look like a 3 year old made them. The bedroom wallpaper is very poorly done, and I stayed in two rooms so far and it is the same. I understand that most resorts... More

My girlfriends and I stayed here the first weekend in Feb. The lobby renovations have been complete and it's beautiful. We sat outside on patio all afternoon enjoying food and drinks. Although the pool isn't done there is still plenty of wonderful things to do. The gym has just be completed, there is a beautiful golf course and a beach... More

I LOVE this hotel. The view is really breathtaking and although they do have their own "private beach", you have to take the tram to the beach or a 20 minutes walk. It's super convenient to get down there so it's worth the time. Unfortunately when I went this last time they were doing remodeling so the pool was closed.... More

Can't put my finger on it but there seemed to be a forced level of service which was a bit impersonal and off putting. Maybe that is what these luxury resorts are all about. I don't get to these places often. Everything was right and the room and bath were great, but it seemed some how that the guests were... More

The bar/terrace is a wonderful way to watch a beautiful sunset over the ocean with Catalina Island in the distance! The rooms were very clean and well appointed. The service was attentive. A wonderful stay!
