We were towards the end of a long holiday in the USA and ready to return home to Australia but had the last 2 nights booked at the pelican hill resort. We arrived and as we had booked through centurion card got an upgrade to a 3 bed villa overlooking the ocean. It was beautiful, extremely well appointed, fireplace, fabulous beds and linens etc etc. the weather was perfect and the pools at the hotel and villa club great. The most amazing thing about the hotel is the service - the best I have ever experienced. There are so many staff and they are all completely ' on it' I had to take a coffee back ( as we had left it to go cold - totally our fault) and the manager came straight back to see me to check what the problem was.
Brilliant restaurants, fantastic service, such friendly and helpful staff and all in a perfect setting - we extended our trip by an extra 5 days - no wonder it won no 1 resort in the USA 2012 Conde Nast - well done very well deserved
