Sun, Surf and Sand! The Cliffs is a perfect place for escape. The upgraded property is beautiful and well maintained with private beach access. The service unbeatable! Staff is friendly. Will visit again!

This was the 28th year that CHMIA has had their conference at the Cliffs and I've attended the CHMIA conference for the last 3-4 yrs.

This resort is fabulous. Highly recommend. Food was amazing. Service at Marisol got a little jammed up with volume on one of the evenings. But they are all so friendly that we didn't care. ***********

Front desk needs to follow through on downed facility repairs.. It is a spa resort and I expect priority to have the spa amenities functional. 2 days of failed repair was not consistent with the rest of the hotel experience.

During a week long college tour of LA and central California, we stopped at the Cliffs Resort the evening before touring Cal Poly. It is a very nice hotel overlooking the water. The rooms are very nice and Shell Beach is lovely. Will definitely return.

-I observed Someone who I was told was in the highest echelons in the Cliffs management loudly chastise a restaurant hostess in regarding the position of a door to the point that everyone turned around during their breakfast.

Greaat service and location. Sea of Love Package made our anniversary very special. Watching the sunset from our ocean view room with private balcony was spectacular. The couple massage was quite a treat.
