This is a wonderful resort that could be stellar with a few tweaks. In for a conference, we added several days to make it a vacation. We were not sorry. The resort is right on the Pacific Ocean. While all rooms overlook the ocean, the best rooms and unobstructed views are in The Tower. The balconies provide place to sit and watch the wonders of nature. The rooms are spacious, well appointed, clean, and very comfortable. The bed is great; we slept as well as at home. The restaurant (Splashes) is quite good as well. We used the spa which was luxurious. A superb massage. Guests can enjoy the beach, pool, or balconies. With all that is wonderful, a couple of odd things kept this from being idyllic. The bathroom is fine, but the showers are oddly configured and hard to get into. A warning: Always use your room card to indicate need for privacy or cleaning; housekeeping is outstanding but vigilant, and they knocked on our door before 9 am and after 9 pm until we got it! The pool is very good, but extremely loud music made it impossible to enjoy on two different days. We requested it be lowered, and were told it was set at a particular volume and could not be adjusted. Huh? But these annoyances aside, it is a wonderful place and we will return.
