We found this place by doing a search for beach front hotels near San Luis Obispo, which is half-way between San Francisco and LA. We took the treacherous drive down the Pacific Coast Highway with our four teenagers in an SUV. We've never seen a more welcome site in our lives than this resort after that drive! Our 2 bedroom penthouse suite was over 2200 square feet with a sub zero fridge and a fully equipped kitchen and an incredible glass balcony overlooking the pool and bluffs over the ocean. Every corner of this resort was immaculate. The landscaping was spectacular. My only wish is that we had more time to spend there. We had to leave to head to LA after two days. I literally had to drag the kids out of there! They were all acting like kids again... Searching for sea glass on the beach, swimming, playing. We especially enjoyed the firepit which was right beside three gas grills which we used to cook steaks we bought at a market nearby. This place is paradise on the west coast.
