We concluded a fantastic trip down the coast with our teens at this awesome resort. Is this a Ritz or Four Seasons? No. But this is my fav Hilton in the country. Service is fantastic and the rooms are very nice and there are always chairs available at the pool. This is a family resort. If you are looking for seclusion you may want to looks elsewhere.
The onsite restaurant Shades is good but has a limited menu. Actually, the lunch menu is more appealing than the dinner menu. Service was friendly and unpretentious. Everyone from the font desk to the bellmen were friendly and helpful. Monique in particular deserves high praise, as well as the women working the surf hero shop.
Our only complaint was the bed. It was extremely soft and we both tossed and turned more than usual..
We splurged for a full suite this time which had a gorgeous view of the pacific and the pool. Overall a winner
