I can't say enough about how beautiful the grounds are, rooms were excellent, everything so clean and staff so friendly. The meals at all the restaurants were unbelievable. The meals were always terrific, prepared by obviously top chefs and served by friendly courteous staff. The swim up rooms added a new dimension to vacationing.

“Room location is important to us because of knee issues. Property is huge and spread-out so there is lots of walking but also lots of shuttles to hop on for transportation around the property. We request our room as close to La Isla pool as possible because we enjoy the swim-up bar and several restaurants surrounding it..”
