We found this hotel on TripAdvisor and what a gem! This beautiful and huge hotel is barely six years old and is so well maintained and so elegant, that we wished we could live there!
So much to tell: the stunning landscaped grounds and the elegant furnishings and design with marble floors, antique furniture, chandeliers and detail everywhere.
And the service.... Everyone was so attentive and professional. As an example, I had forgotten to bring my toothbrush and toothpaste, so I called to see if there was a store in the hotel. Five minutes later, they delivered a complimentary dental kit to our room!
My husband and I used the spa for manicures and pedicures which were worth the price. There is a big fitness center, as well as two big heated saltwater pools.
We ate at one of the restaurants that overlooks the massive grounds and golf course. There is so much to do, but we were only there for three nights. The hotel has a car and driver to take us just about anywhere and we went to La Jolla to see the seals and walk around the shops and restaurants.
You just cannot believe how large this hotel is! And our room was so beautiful with a marble bathroom and nice balcony. There is turn down service where they leave chocolate covered cookies on the pillow and replace bottles of water everyday.
We can't wait to come back to this terrific hotel. Yes, it can be expensive, but it is so worth it!
