We found this place by accident when we were walking along the shore in La Jolla. It is clean, quaint and a really lovely place to relax. The partial ocean view we stayed in was a few yards from the ocean and very spacious. The kitchen was large, the bed very comfortable and the staff and owners wonderful in making... More

Excellent hotel apartment in wonderful location! Our 2 bedroom suite was wonderful for two couples traveling for a wedding. Honestly we didn't use the kitchen other than to chill wine or make tea, but we did enjoy the sitting area with electric fireplace and the views of the Pacific. The space was clean. Bathroom ridiculously small, but for two nights... More

Just spent 3 nights in a partial ocean view apartment with a full kitchen, nice living room with a large flat screen tv and a bedroom. This was much nicer than staying in a standard hotel room. The location of the Pantai is excellent. It is just across the street from the beach and a nice park and a very... More

We had a great experience for 3 nights. I wish wecould have stayed longer. We stayed in a partial oceanview room. It was a huge room with a dining area, fireplace, full kitchen and separate bedroom. There are two 60ish in flatscreen tvs and the bathroom is nice as well. The showers alone are reason enough to book this place.... More

We were upgraded to a room with a beautiful ocean view. The weather was a little cooler than normal so it was so nice to have a 2-way fireplace in our unit. Everything was first class, from the bed, linens, and decor. Bottle of wine and chocolates waiting, plus turn down service were special touches. Wonderful continental breakfast! Excellent staff,...
