I attended a week-long scientific meeting at the Cliffs, booking the highest end room available at the conference rate. This got a room near the ocean end, overlooking the pool with ocean view. Very nice room, as another reviewer noted, with bidet in bathroom, first time I have seen that in North America too. Very minor problem of a sharp edge on a bathtub fixture which gave me a cut - easily avoided once known about. All other aspects really good. Meeting room a bit taxed by about 80-100 people. Catering very good. Breakfasts in the hotel restaurant really good too.
People visiting the beach seem to overflow the small part of the parking lot reserved for them so it can be a bit hard to get a spot in the self-service lot. On the last night we used the valet service which was complimentary; very helpful to us at checkout the next morning.
People should be aware that this area is not super warm in March; also Shell Beach accessed via stairs from the hotel is not as nice for swimming as Pismo Beach a few km south. Pool is not super warm either but hot tub fine.
All in all for a meeting this is a great place, and I will be recommending for "romantic getaway" also since sure it would be good for that too.
