While I usually stay at the Peninsula in Beverly Hills, Pelican Hill comes close in service and food while exceeding with an amazing space and beautiful scenery We stayed in a three bedroom villas and got a nice upgrade to the golf course and ocean view. This is the ideal CA lifestyle for golf and grandeur. While the villa breakfast... More

We stayed in a 4 bedroom villa for 4 nights in late March. It's the best place we have ever stayed worldwide. Can't say enough good things about it. Definitely 5 star! Beautiful unobstructed view of Catalina Island and the golf course. Service was impeccable throughout our stay. Food and service in the restaurants was excellent. The Kids Club was... More

This property is absolutely beautiful! The staff, the grounds, the accommodations, the food all perfect. I travel a lot for work and the staff at this resort were some of the best I have ever experienced. I would have to say this is one of the most beautiful properties that I have stayed at in the U.S.

I stayed here for a short time. The resort is one of the best resorts I have ever stayed in. Everything is perfect the only think I didn't like was the location it is a bit far away from Los angeles, santa monica and hollywood but it is not a problem since you are close to laguna beach and if...

Outstanding resort and one of the best in the world Service and amenities top notch. Andrea restaurant outstanding. Spa is great. Coliseum pool one of a kind. The fireplace in the suites great glow to the atmosphere. Wish I had more time to spend. Will be back. joe

Went on a golf trip with my sons. My oldest made the reservations so I really did not get a chance to review. I have seen golf ad's about the property but they did not give the hotel enough credit. The property is beautiful. The layout is gives the people in the Villas a different private experience. My check in... More

We arrived after a very long flight to find a queue at check in. After waiting about 5 minutes a man came out to help the two girls at reception. He was not particularly welcoming or friendly and we had to hang around till about 4.15pm as the room wasn't ready. Not a good start but that was our only... More

beautiful location, ocean view bungalow overlooking first hole of south golf course was lovely, fireplace, high ceilings, etc. coliseum pool a great spot, and dinner at andrea's was delicious (although a few lapses in service). Biggest complaint is the price. I realize the nicer hotels often demand steep prices, but breakfast for 2 in the room (pancakes, oatmeal, bacon, milk/juice,... More

We were staying at a nearby property and visited both the Coliseum Pool Bar and Grill and the Pelican Grill for evening meals. Both restaurants served delicious food and the waiters were attentive, friendly and respectful. Definitely somewhere we would return to.
