Stayed here for a week while on business and brought my boyfriend, recently. The rooms were very nice -- not overly modern, but nice and clean (except for the occasional hair left behind by the maids - when will hotels have maids start wearing hairnets?). We stayed in a room on the ground floor and I was worried about the sound, but the room was nice and quiet. Bed (we had a king) was nice and comfy, too.
The front desk was very pleasant, although weren't able to answer all of my questions. The two pools were great and the location - a short walk down the hill to the beach/marina.
Didn't appreciate the $17/day for self-parking (I'm pretty sure you can park on the street area at the entrance for free). I didn't use the spa as the prices were (IMHO) way too high. Didn't eat or drink at the hotel - go to the wine store down the street and bring back your own wine to enjoy. And there were plenty of restaurants in the area, so drive around and check it out.
While it isn't the Ritz, I'd stay here again and definitely recommend.
