My husband and I stayed here (April 2014) for our anniversary. We could not have asked for a better place to celebrate! We stayed in a spacious ocean-front room with a private balcony overlooking Coast Blvd and the Cove. The location is perfect, with stunning views of the ocean. We loved falling asleep to the ocean waves crashing on the... More

Beautiful resort steps from La Jolla cove beach. The accomodations are incredible - rooms are updated in modern, quality decor. The property staggers units to allow many rooms to have fabulous ocean views. Staff is amazing & genuinely helpful. Grounds are luxurous with great outdoor space & vibrant landscaping. Full breakfast is impressive and afternoon snacks were a nice touch.

The Pantai Inn was the best hotel of our roundtrip through California. We stayed there over easter with our two teenage kids, who loved it as well. It´s perfect location directly at the beach, the every spacious rooms with tasteful interior, most comfortable beds and a wonderful breakfast were just wonderful.

We are not usually so extravagant on lodging, but after reading reviews decided this was the place for us. Kind, helpful and knowledgeable staff greeted us. Our condo had a full view of the ocean, the park across the road and Children’s Beach. We were greeted with a complimentary bottle of wine at check-in and turn down service with yummy... More

I would have given them more stars as the inn itself and the customer service I got DURING my stay were all good, but after big and careless errors made on their part after my stay and they way they've handled it, they don't deserve a better rating. You only have one chance to make a strong impression on customers,... More
