We got an amazing Hotwire rate for the resort and stayed in a bungalow king. Everything about the property is superior. Rooms are huge, 847 sq ft with huge bathrooms, great in-room amenities, and even with our Hotwire rate, they gave us an ocean view bungalow. You drive to your bungalow and park your car in front of it, which was handy for coming and going.
The pool itself is a destination, it's HUGE and one of the most beautiful pools you'll see. We loved dining in the Coliseum Grill overlooking the pool, then the golf course, then the Pacific. Even though the resort is across PCH from the ocean, sitting there and looking at it, it seems to be "right there."
Service was exceptional, everyone was so friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed.
There are two 18 hole courses on the property, a spa, the pool and hot tub, and a wonderful common area with huge living room, a great tea shop, and a beautiful restaurant and bar. What they don't have are a lot of kid things like playgrounds, which is great by me, as couples sometimes need their own oasis away from it all!
