A few years ago, a friend introduced me to the brunch at the Cliff House. Very, very nice and the view was beautiful. The assortment of food offered was wonderful. A very nice experience.

Breathtaking ocean views overlooking dramatic rocky coastline. Outside patio has 4 tables. One server who couldn't manage the tables. Lobster bisque showed up cold. They replaced it. Never inquired how it was first or second time how it was. Server never asked me about wanting a bill. It was as if I was invisible. If you are a tourist and... More

The balcony was very dirty with some spider net, disgusting, not even pleasurable to read a book with a terrific view. There was no safe in the bedroom. The Jacuzzi/ pool are were unattended and beer... More

Hot tub and pool, 2 each, were great and the room was spotless and comfortable. They have a lovely labyrinth and spa! They have gotten... More
