We are currently staying at the Pelican Hill resort in Newport Beach, CA. We have a bungalow overlooking the Pacific Ocean. I was hoping for a room that faced the afternoon sun which #227 has just this plus the view. It is very nice. It has a nice large deck with lounge chairs to catch some California sun. I have walked down to the Crystal Cove State Park each morning for a very relaxing walk on the beach. The park is located exactly 1 mile from our bungalow. The walk back up to our bungalow is all up hill but it is a good workout.
I mentioned to our bartender at the Colieseum bar that our mini fridge in our room was in need of getting restocked and i asked him who I should call for this. He immediately took it upon himself to call for us and take care of it. When we returned back to our room later that afternoon, the mini bar was restocked and we were happy.
Randy at the Concierge desk was very helpful in making dinner reservations for us. He was very professional and took great care of us.
We have stayed at the Ritz Carlton's and Four Seasons but I would have to say that I like Pelican Hill the best. I love the intimate quiet rooms and that we can park our car right outside our door.
If you are debating on staying here or not... just go and book it. You won't regret it.
