We stayed at the Pelican Hill Resort while my husband was on a business trip. We arrived a few days ahead of time to take advantage of the facilities before his conference began. Within a short time of arrive, we really felt as though we were on vacation. The rooms are gorgeous and feel like a beautiful modern cabin on the ocean. We had views of the ocean from our private patio and had our coffee there every day in the morning. I always started the day with a dip in the hot tub at the spa followed by a sauna. This was included with the room rate, so although I only had one official treatment at the spa, I felt as though I had been pampered all week. We loved it here and will definitely make it our place to stay in Newport Beach.
