I've stayed here a couple times, but you don't have to have a room to enjoy an amazing sunset. With public parking nearby, you can sit on the patio, near the 18th hole of a great golf course, and take in the sunset. Or walk below the cliffs on the beaches. Bring a jacket as it is usually windy and...

The property is magnificent - the views, location, and interior. The staff are exceptional and remembered my name throughout my stay. The only, minor, complaint is that I wished the spa locker room opened earlier. I finished my workout by 7:00 and would have been nice to have showered, steamed, and gotten ready for the day in the men's locker...

First ever experience at a Ritz Carlton where not only no water bottle, no snacks were in the bedrooms but to add, no internal boutiques selling water nor snacks. One bathrobe for couple 750$ a night room and a violent wake up at 6am from the women dropping our news paper under the door. I guess she felt comfortable speaking...

The hotel is located right on the cliffs overseeing the ocean. Amazing location. And great views. But this is a resort that appears to be focused on conferences and group meetings. So lots of areas around the hotel are shut off to hotel guests, and reserved for private group functions. The Executive Club lounge on the fifth floor was not...

I can't say enough about how wonderful my stay was. My only gripe was that my first night there, some folks were loud in the hall area. There may have been some event? Other than that, it is just what I needed and I will be back. Possibly with my family of 4. Or myself again, should the opportunity present...

I have never had a better greeting at any property. The details that are covered by their staff made the difference for us. Because of this stay, we will be giving more Ritz properties another look. This property is also gorgeous and the firepits are a great touch. We did not make it to them before the rain unfortunately, but...

Best hidden gem in Cali!!! We will most definitely be back! You don't t even need to leeave the property! It's decent without being pretentious. Take a long walk along the shore and come back just in time to have a massage and spend the rest of your day next to a fire pit sipping on a glass of wine!
