Our anniversary was in April, so my husband booked a surprise retreat to this resort. We stayed in the one bedroom. We had been here before about 2 yrs. ago. Since then I noticed they have done a few upgrades. They updated the kitchen cabinets and appliances and they updated the bedroom mattresses and bedspreads to a more comfortable & modern look. Also they upgraded the TV from the bedroom. We saved a lot on eating out since we took food to cook/ grill. They have a kitchen supplied with everything one can need and they have a gas grill in the balcony. They also have salt and pepper and complimentary coffee for the first two nights, more is available in the vending machines. The unit was huge, and it had a huge jacuzzi, which we enjoyed very much. They have onsite bike rentals for $3 for 2hrs. We rode the bikes down the Capistrano Creek Trail which is a pretty nice scenic trail, We rode for about one hr to and back and did not reach the end of it. I loved the view form the suite, the ocean is right across the street and you can hear the waves of the ocean, very calming. Once your ready to sleep you can close your bedroom windows and not hear a sound.
There are two kinds of balconies, one has a short see through fence and the other a wood divider. The wood is more private since it goes all the way up. The glass balcony is not, your neighbor can pretty much walk outside and join you. There are more of the private balconies though than the clear ones 2/3 more.
The staff is not very friendly as you often see in other resorts, that is why I put a 4 not a five.
Ask for the balconies that have the wood dividers if you want more privacy while using the balcony.
