Went down to the O.C. for our anniversary and had a wonderful time. The Kimpton Shorebreak Hotel was an excellent choice. The location, service and Zimzala restaurant were all wonderful and I highly recommend them.

As a repeat visitor to the Shorebreak, it was again a pleasure to visit. Had a different room this time that was spacious with a very comfortable bed, kept quiet by great double glazing. This room had a big balcony looking directly out over the beach. Only downside of the stay was the balcony was pretty dirty and didn't get... More

This hotel is clean, modern, updated, and an amazing location. It is directly across from the pier and beach. It is an easy walk to shopping and restaurants. Every staff member I talked to and met was great. It has a definite fun surfer vibe to it.
