The hotel is located right on the beach. Rooms are very spacious and most of them offer a view (even partial) on the ocean. they are well equipped (bath + shower, clean iron, board, slippers, bathrobes), even you will find a candle to have relaxing bath. The restaurant for the breakfast offers seats right on the beach which is very pleasant, the service provided by the staff is excellent, and the food is good! HOWEVER the restaurant inside (PICO 1) + the bar have room from improvement from the service point of view... I do NOT recommend

Shutters has become my go-to place to escape life's trials and tribulations. The access to the impeccable beach with the Santa Monica mountains overlooking the ocean is reason to come back again and again.

Del Mar, California53 contributions3 helpful votes
This hotel always reminded me of the movies. This adorable little hotel is right on the beach, and presents an image of the 'California version of the Hamptons'. The staff is wonderful. They are always greeting you, and smiling. The room was nice, we had a beautiful view of the pool and the ocean. I highly recommend the ocean view. Oh, and don't forget to go for a bike ride.. Compliments of the hotel. The only thing that was not up to par is that we did not receive soap, shampoo and conditioner for the duration of the trip. My husband and I had to share a small bottle for 3 days.and the sink was clogged. Other then that, top notch! PS. The French Margarita is to DIE FOR!!!
