We booked adjoining rooms on the non-ocean side of the hotel. While we only had a glimpse of the water, the rooms were plenty big and clean. The breakfast was better than most buffets. Getting to Sea World was an easy ten minute drive. Downtown was about 15 minutes (no traffic).
The staff was really great. We were cheerfully greeted every time we walked in or out of the hotel.
Only a walking path separates the pool from the cliff that the ocean is just beyond. Tall glass walls allow for a stunning view, but you still feel the breeze on a colder day.
There is bar service at the pool. Order a smoothie for the kids to make them feel special. For dinner, think ahead as there aren't that many great options close by.
All around great experience.
