This is one of the newest and most luxurious hotels in Newport Beach. It's a fantastic property, however service levels can be improved. Worth to give it a try, especially if you're a golfer. Amazing vistas and a fantastic circular pool awaits you for a getaway.

Stayed here this past weekend (7/25 - 7/26) and had a great time. We had a Bungalow for the weekend with an ocean view. It was beautiful and incredibly comfortable. The service was fantastic especially from the front desk, concierge and valet. We couldn't have had a better time. Thanks to everyone for a wonderful weekend!

Stayed at Pelican Hill in late July. The facilities are beautiful, the food excellent and the service very good. My room was huge with probably 15 ft ceilings and a large bathroom and terrace. Luxurious furniture and bedding and finishes throughout make it feel equal to a Four Seasons. The golf courses are resort style but very fun and challenging.... More

From the moment we arrived the staff was pleasant ,polite and very helpful. Our room was spacious, clean and absolutely perfect. The crisp white linens and duvet and our king size bed was dreamy!!The pool area is gorgeous and so is the spa.

It’s actually somewhat rare when I stay at a property, dine somewhere, or visit an attraction that I really feel like deserves TripAdvisor’s “Excellent” rating. There’s simply no other way to rate The Resort at Pelican Hill. The service, the room, the amenities, the grounds, the views… All perfect. My only tiny complaint is that there’s really only one place... More

Came down for a weekend getaway of golf and relaxation. The hotel and grounds are in excellent condition and the staff are top notch. From the moment you drive up to the time you leave, the staff is very accommodating and never pushy. The two golf courses have incredible ocean views. Get the fore caddy who will help you with...

We stayed at Pelican Hill for five nights recently. This was our first visit. Our room overlooking the ocean was outstanding. Only regret is that we did not have an umbrella on our patio as the sun was bright. Food and service throughout were top notch and always with a smile

Wonderful, wonderful place. Impeccable grounds. Friendly, efficient staff. Beautifully maintained. Large comfortable rooms. Terraces available that overlook the Pacific Ocean. Shuttles to the beach. Great food. Beautiful salt water pool that is a pleasure to swim in. Terrific water pressure in the showers. Fire places in the rooms. Perfect location between Newport and Laguna Beaches. This is a special place.... More
