Very spacious and modern room, with gas fireplace and sitting area, loved the lighting and the extra touches: turndown w chocolates, quality robes, 3-4 kinds of fruits in lobby, coffee and breads in lobby in morning (great for folks who dont want a full breakfast). Walk right out to beach, can walk for miles (beach is public, but very few... More

My husband and I had two days in this very high standard hotel, located right on the beach of Malibu. Service, standard and food is all excellent. However, the walls are paper thin and and you can actually almost hear the neighbours conversations, etc! A noicy couple on one side and a crying baby who woke up at 5.30 am... More

I have often wanted to stay on the beach in Malibu but have usually ended up staying in Santa Monica instead. When I saw an offer for the MBI on Sniqueaway.com, I checked the (very favorable) reviews on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. What a truly unique and unusual spot! The small, exquisite room with its jaw-dropping... More

I really don't know how to describe the wonderful experience we had. Perfect perfectness :-) Spent a special birthday there and it was the best birthday ever! I think the part that was so astonishing is just how oceanfront they are. The balcony is practically right over the water. We saw frollicking dolphins and pelicans. The room was so luxurious...

Very small boutique hotel with gorgeous rooms, an amazing view right on the ocean from the balcony, outstanding service. The food at the restaurant was average though.

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.
