“Great food.....fabulous views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

Food, service were very good. Views were fabulous. But why make us wait for a table and miss the sunset when the couple we can see at the bar getting drunk have had you holding a table for over thirty minutes...really.

“Best View in Dana Point”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Loved sitting out back over looking the shore line and beach in Dana Point up on the hill. 180 degree view of gorgeous Dana Point coastline.

“Would have been nice...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

This was the only sore spot in our trip. We would've loved to have spent time there, but it seemed people were quite agressive in getting seating (to watch the sunset) and I just wasn't up for the level of agression it required. No reservations or anything taken, and I understand that, but it was somewhat disappointing to not be able to have a turn.

“What a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012 via mobile

Fantastic stay here, so sad to leave.

The view is breath taking, on a cliff overlooking the sea, absolutely spectacular, whilst the St Regis might be a bit posher, you can't beat the view here.

Get a room with the sea view it's work it, the food and service is super, bed and room was nice and spacious, I had a really lovely stay here.

As you know in the US nothing is really very close, but most things are a stones throw away, had a dinner down at the beach it's was just out of this world, for the surfers this is just fantastic as a location.

Got to know they had diving around here a bit too late, would have loved to do a few if possible.
