My husband and I recently stayed at the Pelican Hill for our anniversary. The rooms are quite stunning with tall wood beamed ceilings, fireplace, and beautiful furnishings....not to mention the large scale of the room and bathroom. The bed linens were very nice and it was so comfy to sleep in! I was surprised that we were able to park... More

The view of the ocean from this hotel was breathtaking, our room was luxurious, the restaurants are outstanding and the swimming pool is huge and the staff is very attentive. You couldn't ask for more!

Just returned from a weekend stay last night. We had a bungalow with ocean view (very beautiful). The bungalow has a vaulted wood-beam ceiling, fireplace, very comfortable bedding, and huge beautiful bathroom. Nice coffee grinder/maker in room (although apparently we were charged for the coffee sitting next to it which should be included). The bungalow was very quiet and comfortable,... More

My husband and I stayed at this resort recently for our anniversary and we had the most wonderful and relaxing time. We've stayed at quite a few nice resorts in the past and I have to say this Resort is definitely one of the best in terms of the rooms and location. It was excellent. The resort is very spread...

Came predominantly for the two golf courses, but of which were worth the trip. Unfortunately the one practice putting green was closed and there's no sand/ bunker/chipping green, which, for very expensive rounds, is unacceptable. Hotel facility top notch which one would expect at this high price point. Service in most restaurants fairly good. Shower water pressure in room almost... More

Stayed with my family for 5 days during a 3 week tour of California. Stayed in a 2 bed villa apartment. The villa is well finished, a good size at over 2000 sf with washer/dryer/kitchen etc and everything worked well. The resort itself is very spread out from the villa clubhouse area to the main hotel complex to the golf... More

I booked this hotel for our honeymoon. the hotel management and reception were very kind and upgrade our room free with complementary fresh fruit and chocolate. Everything about the resort was top class, the staff could not do enough to help you . The location is great for beaches and shopping. for sure i recommend this place to everybody.

The Irvine Company (I think that's the name) has spent a fortune building an incredible resort, nice spacious rooms, etc. They should hire Four Seasons or Peninsula or someone to run the hotel portion for them because this management can not run a hotel well. I have stayed at Pelican Hill 3 times in 2014 and have had major service... More
