Fabulous-Fabulous-Fabulous!!! This resort is amazing!
ARIVAL: Upon arrival the valet staff promptly unpack you vehicle (almost entirely) before we exited the car. They catered to every need immediately.
ROOMS: Beautifully decorated! Peaceful, and comfortable. We had a room with a balcony that overlooked the pool & beach. Luxurious robes, large bathrooms with a large claw foot bath tub--big enough for two & adorned with many candles--separate walk in shower. Be sure to experience (the room service) breakfast served on your balcony! Heavenly! (However, don't leave your food unattended or the seagulls will swiftly enjoy your meal.)
GROUNDS: Breathtaking! The gardens were lush, colorful, and plentiful. There are SPECTACULAR tidal pools on the beach directly in front of the resort; I would have spent all day there if my partner had let me.
SERVICE and STAFF: When walking the grounds and passing by (any) staff, they would stop, move to the side, look you in the eye & smile. The fascinating part of this was that it did not matter who you approached, or the intensity of their conversation (which is easy to notice if you simply pay attention) the staff's energy would shift, and their eyes would light up as they greeted guests. There was never a disingenuousness greeting. Compared to any other resort I have stated it, the staff here were by far the most helpful, courteous, and friendly. (And maybe this is a perfect example of "you get what you pay for!") After spending a few hours on the beach and at the tidal pools, I returned to the room and removed my extremely sandy sport sandals & jeans and placed them over my suitcase. During the 'turndown service' the staff cleaned my jeans & shoes--there was not one grain on sand anywhere. The service here is simply off the charts.
FOOD: EVERYTHING was delicious!!! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts, pastry, drinks. That said, my favorite dinner while staying in Laguna Beach was at 230 (230 Forest Ave, Laguna Beach) Half Baked Chocolate Soufflé Cake--need I say more!!!
