We absolutely love this place!!! We have been going there for almost 30 years as a family and now our grandchildren are enjoying it too. We also love it when we go by our selves or with friends. It is in a perfect location across from good places on the beach and it is surrounded by yummy places to eat. The local shops are a plus. We always get great service and see many friendly faces. The staff is very willing to help us plan our day. Hot coffee and snacks are provided throughout the day and the on site shop is convenient. The rooms have small kitchens and an eating area. We love relaxing by the fire pits after a fun filled day. It is the best!!!

Room Tip: Some rooms have an ocean view and some have a front porch. Others over look the pool area or the fire place pits. All rooms have been redone. We've been in many rooms over the years and have been happy with them all!

Ocean Palms Beach Resort was definitely a highlight on our trip down the California coast! When our initial accommodations fell through at another local spot, the staff at OPBR booked us a room right away at a discounted rate nonetheless! A potential disaster was all together swept away with the aid of the angel working the front desk! The location is perfect, accommodations were gorgeous and well kept, and friendly helpful staff all around. We will definitely be back next year!

This is our third year staying at the Ocean Palms. It has become a second home when we visit our son and his family. The Blues have been very accommodating to our needs. All the staff are friendly, helpful, and efficient. The location is excellent, convenient to restaurants and stores, and especially the beach - right across the street. The improvements and upgrades to the suites are top notch. I highly recommend a stay here.

The Ocean Palms Beach Resort has to be one of the best beach hotels that I have ever stayed at. The property is gorgeous, clean, and detailed. There are palm trees throughout the property, and some have tiki style carvings on them. You are about a minute from the Norte Mexican Restaurant. The beach is across the street. Tina at the front desk was professional and welcoming. I highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Book ahead way in advance, this place sells out quickly. Restaurant Norte across the street is definite must.

I stayed for 7 nights and it was perfect. Brought my Boston Terrier "Harley" and he loved it as well! I went to the beach everyday and everyday I saw wild dolphins swimming just off shore! The room was just perfect. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful - Todd, Jose, and the guy with the big brown hair (sorry sir, I forgot your name!) all made me feel welcome and valued as a guest. Thank you to all the housekeeping, maintenance, and desk clerks for making this the best, most relaxing vacation I have ever had! ALOHA :)

Room Tip: Room 215 has an ocean view!
