This resort is good for healthy young people - everything requires walking great distances and is not well lit at night. Very easy to get lost which requires extra walking. On a positive note, food was excellent. Resort is a bit pricey and the lack of an actual beach is disappointing.

Stayed here for 4 nights The casita was a bit far from the resort. Parking was bad because apparently the employees take up most of the spaces There is a golf cart service to take you around if needed but they forgot to pick us up twice and one time dropped my wife and kids off at the wrong place...

Recently, I had the opportunity to explore the "College Campus" called Terranea College. I know you've heard of it. Tucked away in the far nessels of the 110/405 freeway surrounded by water. Well if you haven't attended, now is the time to enroll. They are taking requests as I type. This place is a diamond in the rough. I went... More

it doesn't get any better than this majestic resort situated in an idyllic location with breathtaking views of the Pacific and Catalina Island. Service and food were consistently outstanding. Can't wait to go back.

Recently spent the weekend here, reuniting with friends. We loved the property, didn't leave at all. Beautiful views, plenty of relaxing spots to enjoy a cocktail and pass the day. The adult pool is calm and lovely and the spa services were excellent. Nelsons at night was a treat on the beach with live music. Warning- it is a BIG... More

This resort perches on the cliffs not far from Long Beach with stunning views out over the Pacific. It's a big place and the cliff paths are great for running or walking. There is a little sandy beach in a nearby cove but it looks man-made and the sand doesn't go right down to the water - switches over to... More

One of the most picturesque properties I've ever stayed at -- gorgeous landscaping, nature trails, ocean bluffs. The weather in SoCal is typically awesome anyway, and this resort takes full advantage. It's huge, and somewhat spread out, but there are amenities too many to mention, and a new photo op around every corner. It has a relaxed elegance that I've... More

The location and views are beautiful, comparable to Montage in Laguna. However, the prices are also similar to the Montage, through the service, level of attention by the staff, and food quality are not comparable. At $600-700 a night, this place is way overpriced. I really like this place, but it is more like a $400/nt hotel.

When I'm booking a standard room at $600 a night, Im expecting 5 star service. The service was closer to 2 star than 5 star, which would be OK if I was not paying $1,300 for two nights in a 450 sq ft room. Never once did I wait LESS than 20 minutes to be seated at a restaurant. When... More

We were handed three glasses of sparkling wine upon check-in! I smiled! We were upgraded to a fantastic room which looked out to Catalina Island.Nice... Off to a memorable weekend and the end of a fantastic vacation to California. The hotel is a treasure. If you are familiar with LA, the area is a breath of fresh air. If you... More
