Exploring La Jolla and wandered without a reservation into this classical Mediterranean style hotel that felt like a scene from Casablanca, but in brilliant vibrant color. So comfortable and relaxing from the moment we entered. We knew we were in the right place. Professionally greeted and welcomed by the gentleman at the Front Desk who was most informative and helpful and provided with a most comfortable chaarming accommodation that was impeccablly appointed and clean. Evening turn down provided complimentary waters which was appreciated. Cleaned up now and back downstairs, the inviting lobby and lounging area draws you in with a lovely outdoor dining balcony overlooking the lushly multi-level landscaped courtyard and pool; and then to the end of the extended lobby and lounge with a spectactular view of La Jolla Cove, towering palms and the Pacific Ocean. Spent the next day totally relaxing at the wonderful pool surrounded by tropical flora and basking in the SoCal sunshine and tempered by the fresh ocean air. Well taken care of by attentive pool staff, had a "to die for" lobster BLT with a glass of Chardonnay. Up the street, take your pick form a bunch of great restaurants for dinner from top notch upscale to just plain relaxed good food. OK, that's just one day. Enough already. If in town, you really should experience this place if even for just one day!
