The staff here were immensively friendly and helpful, and the room was very well appointed and clean. There was zero noise pollution from other guest rooms or from the very lively first floor restaurant that I could see from the balcony. I would stay here again on future trips to

I loved their spa. Everything was clean & the decor was well done. I had a facial with Jessica and it was wonderful. She was kind, helpful & my skin was very soft the next day. The waiting area has snacks & coffee which was great because some spas don’t do that. I’ll be back :)

The décor in the hotel was delightful. I was given a ground floor room open to the sidewalk and parking lot without the desk advising me or asking my preference. As a female traveler, I do not like this location and should have been asked.

When I was there, they actually had 2 pools. A new large lap pool in the back courtyard was almost done but delayed due to constant rains. Unfortunately, I don't recall if either were heated.

Is it possible to access the hotel's private beach for all guests?
Hi Farah R, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, the private beach outside the resort is a private space for Balboa Bay Club members and not accessible for hotel guests and the general public. We are however located within 3 miles of some great public beaches, and our valet team provides complimentary shuttle service to Lido Island and Balboa Island. Thank you again for reaching out and please contact us should you have any additional questions. We hope you choose to stay with us very soon.
