We stayed at The Island Hotel for one night as part of our cross country road trip. The room was spectacular and the room service (it was a veg night for us) was very good. The only draw back was that it was far from the water and located next to a mall. I wrongfully assumed that it would be closer to the water and was surprised by its location. That being said, the hotel is a little oasis in the midst of a busier area of Newport Beach.
As part of the "veg night" I went to the spa. I was hesitant at first making an appointment with a hotel spa, but I was blown away. It was absolutely beautiful, peaceful and had all the makings of an upscale spa. I had a massage with Amanda and I can honestly say that it was the best massage that I have ever gotten. I very particulart about massages, as I can't stand light rubbing. I requested that she give more of a deep tissue massage and she sure did! It was absolutely incredible! If we go back, I am definitely requesting Amanda!
FYI: The hotel is about 15 minutes from downtown Laguna.
