My boyfriend and I decided that Labor Day we needed to get out of LA and The Belamar was the perfect get away.
We packed up on Saturday am and took a lovely drive down to Manhattan Beach (only 45 minutes away). On arrival at the hotel we were met by friendly staff and taken to our room.
We rented the Deluxe King Suite and it was lovely. Filled with art deco furniture and our own private balcony that over looked the pool/spa and courtyard.
The room itself was just the right size with a great bathroom, lovely toiletries, IPOD speakers and an amazingly comfy bed.
After checking in we headed to the pool for an hour before taking 2 of the free Belamar Hotel's bicycles down the wood chip trail to the beach (15 minute ride).
We ended up at North End Cafe and sampled some of the most amazing cuban sandwiches before walking around the shops, cafes and finally ending up on the pier to watch the sunset. Very romantic!
We then headed back to the hotel to the in house resturant for a few cheeky cocktails and some snack food. Decent prices.
Its a perfect place to stay as its not in the hustle and bustle of the beach but yet close enough that you feel just a stones through away.
I would highly recommend it if you just want to get away for a short time!
Loved it and will be back!
