“Fantastic and perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

What an amazing place to stay! Booked through AA Vacations.com and got to fly through John Wayne, which was much cheaper than LAX, which was a plus in it's self this time of year. We stayed there from December 25-31, 2012. The staff was great, the valet was extremely organized and very friendly. This is an ideal location to relax and still be able to take trips to Disneyland and San Diego Zoo. The property was spotless and the rooms (which were upgraded to a junior type suite) were amazing. The location was superb and the partial beach view was ideal. I would for sure stay here again!

Room Tip: I would stay closer to the front desk if possible, quite a trek to the other side, but our rooms wer...

During our trip to California this summer our family stayed at this resort in August 2012 for 5 nights. We are a family of 5 2 adults & 3 children (ages 16 /14/ 10 years).
We loved the relaxed Mediterranean atmosphere of this hotel, and the wonderful beach location.
We stayed in a very spacious Governor’s Suite; it was overlooking the main pool and had a balcony with a fantastic view of the ocean.
The suite was very clean and comfortable for all the family.
We ate in The Californian for the breakfast buffet daily ,staff were friendly and accommodating. We also ate at Pete’s Sunset Grille the staff were lovely and food delicious.
The pool side bar staff were always on hand for food & snacks we found the portions a good standards & size.
The hotel is a 15 minute walk to Huntington, don’t miss the lovely market and resturants.
We also used the small hotel gym that had everything we needed. I highly recommend the lovely Spa the staff are very friendly and helpful, also the fire pits are lovely in the evening for a relaxing drink.
Downside as everyone says is the parking charge, Hyatt please include this cost as there is no alturnative.

Room Tip: Join the Hyatt's Presidents club ocean view's are worth the extra money.

This hotel was supposed to be one of the highlights of our summer vacation. I reserved a ocean view room on the club level (booked and prepaid everything more than 6 months in advance!) and even called ahead to make sure that we really get a nice room. They couldn't have cared less!!! Upon checking in I was told that there is no more room on the club level left and no ocean view either. The guy at the reservation desk went several times to talk to his supervisor - but no, nothing could be done. They offered a 50 USD off for the inconvenience - which is RIDICULOUS!!! We ended up in an accessible room (why that???) miles away from the club level and with no ocean view but a view (and horrible smell) of the mexican restaurant which belongs to the hotel. Although it all happened this summer I am still so p..., I stopped staying in Hyatt Hotels - which to that date was my favourite chain.
The club lounge was totally overcrowded and nothing special, the hotel mainly seemed to cater to conventions (and it was July!) and a constantly drunk tattoo-crowd (saw several people puking in the bushes around the pools, isn't that nice?).
I am giving 2 points instead of 1 because of the location, which is really fabulous. Hotel of no return...!!!

Room Tip: Stay next door at the Hilton Waterfront!!!

This is a great family hotel, walking distance to the beach. I must admit I was a little shocked when I checked out on the bill since it had a few hidden charges. Would recommend this hotel if you have kids but not so much if you are traveling for business or for a romantic stay.

Room Tip: This hotel is huge so be prepared to walk

This attractive upscale resort is normally out of our budget but I was able to get an online deal, so I splurged for one night. The staff is very friendly and useful. The room is a standard upscale hotel room, nothing remarkable, though the beds are very comfortable. Our room had a mini-fridge and a tiny coffee maker with Starbucks packets. The bathroom was quite capacious. The resort is lovely with nice landscaping and artworks and even though it was chilly, I enjoyed the spa grotto area. You can see the ocean from the pools and many of the rooms. The down side of this resort, aside from the cost, is that the Pacific Coast Highway runs just beneath it and you can hear highway noise from the pool areas. There are four hot tubs, one in its own attractive grotto area, though they had too much chlorine in them for my kids. They were getting quite itchy. I would suggest the resort regulate the chlorine based on occupancy, since if no one is in the pools, they don't need as much. I liked the little market which had reasonably priced sandwiches. Firepits are nice, too and the sunset views are spectacular. They have a kids' club, though I didn't need it. Small but well stocked fitness room open 24 hours with all modern machines. There was also a kid water park but I didn't see it. If you join the Hyatt loyalty club, you may be able to get them to give you a free upgrade. In addition to the room fee, they also charge a $28 resort fee and $29 for valet parking though you can park across at the city lot for less. We will be back!

Room Tip: If you join the Hyatt loyalty club you might be able to get an upgrade

We stayed at this Hyatt for 2 nights in early December. Our room overlooked the ocean with a balcony, and the hotel provides easy access to the beach. The hotel was tastefully and beautifully decorated for the holiday, including a sand sculpture in the lobby. Our room was spacious and well-appointed. The grounds are beautiful, including a number of fountains, and beautiful flower gardens, and lots of places to sit, relax and enjoy the views. We enjoyed the hot cocoa and ginger cookies offered in the lobby each afternoon - delicious! The staff (front desk, valet, housekeeping and restaurant servers) was warm and welcoming, and eager to please. We also enjoyed the sunshine in the courtyard that is surrounded by several retail shops, including a great little art gallery (The Gallery HB) that features works by Dean Torrance of Jan & Dean fame, among others such as Sebastian Kruger. Parking is a bit expensive (valet only, too).

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view

Everyone was very pleasant and accommodating. The beds were super comfy, and the food was so nice. Super close to the beach, but also has pools and hot tubs. The property is lush and green, super enormous! The holiday decor was just enough. I would definitely stay here again. The only complaint I had, is poor cell phone service, but they can't do anything about that.
Watch out for hidden resort fees, and wifi.
Love this hotel!!!
