We reserved a room with a balcony view of the garden. We also requested a room with 2 double beds and a sofabed. When we arrived to check in, we were told we had been upgraded to an ocean view for free and since there was no sofabed in the room, they would bring us a complimentary roll away bed. We were on the top floor of the San Clemente wing.
The room was very nice. Clean and decorated in a modern beach them. We had an adjoining room and the door between our rooms seemed to be paper thin. We could clearly hear the women in the other room talking. Awkward. The view was slightly disappointing because the driveway was right below us and the ocean view was pretty distant and what we can mostly see was the harbor. There was no balcony in this room either. But, I didn't want to seem ungrateful for the free upgrade, so I didn't say anything.
We were also notified that there was going to be an OC Chapter Porsche Club gathering on Sunday morning. So we expected more cars parked around the resort and more people. But, we didn't expect to hear revving car engines at 5:45am. They started arriving early to set up for their event and since our room was right above the driveway, we heard it all : /
Overall, the property is amazing and the service is very good.
