What a great spot!! I had a wonderful room overlooking the beach with a private balcony. It was heavenly! Incredibly friendly staff ready to help in any way. Superbly nice room with very comfortable furnishing. And the softest, most comfortable robes I have ever seen in any hotel. I will look for an opportunity to make a return visit to... More

Late last year, our youngest daughter graduated from College, came home to our (East Coast USA) family farm and promptly announced she was moving to California! Since as parents we all know we cannot fight or prevent the inevitable, off she went. So, when Thanksgiving came around, we decided to take our other daughter to California and spend Thanksgiving together.... More

Be forewarned this hotel is VERY expensive, and when you book online you need to be sure to check what the total will be after fees and taxes, as that is a considerable add on to the basic rate. I got the breakfast package and a Queen Ocean View Room which was a good deal and covered all our breakfast... More

I was not used to hearing waves crash all night but I quickly adapted. Modern and understated beach decor was gorgeous. Everything looked newly renovated. Only wished there had been a tub (was in Gidget suite). Lots of wine options in the mini bar.

A 7 minute drive from Pepperdine University, At the last minute i decided to take a day to disconnect following a stressful meeting instead of taking the red-eye back to the East Coast.

Wow, where to begin? Incredible location. We went for an early Christmas trip and were able to get an ocean view king room (which of course has spoiled me for any other room there!).

As everyone says, the hotel is right on the beach. Unfortunately, it wasn't much of a beach..a rather thin strip that disappeared at high tide during mid-morning for a significant part of the day. Our stay was in November. As far as a 'beach resort,' it is lacking in that respect. The property is nice but as close as it... More

Staying in Malibu

Neighborhood Profile
Malibu
The Malibu coastline is like a chameleon. In some areas it resembles the French Riviera with its lush, green hillsides descending into crescent-shaped shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted with stunning rock formations. In certain areas, where the ocean waves are just right, surfers can be seen bobbing in the water. Up in the mountains to the east hikers take in truly stunning views of the ocean and the sprawling Los Angeles landscape. And along Pacific Coast Highway, restaurants are filled with visitors and locals from all walks of life. Stumble into the right place at the right time, and you’ll likely encounter a celebrity.
