Quite bowled over by hotel. Beautiful design inside and out with fabulous views over the golf course and sea. Had excellent lunch above the pool which was just spectacular. Terrific hotel shops - everything outstanding and couldn't be more impressive

We are hoping to come back this Spring! I adore this hotel-the rooms are the best part. I would of course love it was a little less expensive... but it is luxury :) The pool is great the grounds are beautiful and the ocean view is worth it!!!

We've stayed here several times when visiting Southern CA- beautiful location with views of the ocean. The property is large and the pools are very beautiful. Our kids love this place. You can drive your car and park next to your residence. The pool is really nice, reminds me of Italy.

Enjoyed another fantastic stay in a villa at Pelican Hill. While I am impressed with the service and the views, I still enjoy how quiet the area is. Whether it be during the day or night, it always feels peaceful. Leaving the large patio doors open offers a great breeze right off the ocean. Service is impecable while not being...

My wife and I have stayed a Pelican Hill several times of the past few years and it is always a wonderful experience. The Bungalows are some of the nicest rooms you can ever stay.. There are 2 gold course and a great spa. The entire staff can not be more helpful.

This place is amazing - whether you talk about location, service or facilities. Regrettably I was here for business, so I didn't have an opportunity to take advantage of all the facilities or ample time to enjoy my accommodations (which were nothing short of amazing).

We stayed in a three bedroom villa for our family vacation in February. The villa exceeded all expectations. They are extremely spacious and luxurious. There was no comparison as the price we paid was the same as one room at the Ritz Carlton. Travelling with three kids ( two teens) as a family of five, this was the perfect size...

You think Tuscany. The resort is a cluster of stuccoed villas sprawled over several acres of land in Newport Beach. The decor is plush and inviting. It just calls to you to sink into the couch or bed and daydream while staring at the stone fireplace or to the patio and beyond to the hills and the Italian junipers. You...

This is my first trip to California celebrating my sister's 50th birthday. Incredible staff, food amazing and spa facilities and treatments to heal you. Great villa with a great kitchen, fireplace, living room and dining area for 8 people was incredible. I felt like we were at the cottage. Breathtaking view of the golf course and the back drop of...

We arrived late and didn´t get to experience the facility at the hotel. But, the standard of our bungalow was just amazing and definitely the best during our entire trip through California. It was very clean (best!), perfect bathroom, delightful bed, large room, terracce with best sun beds and so on. I can just say that you will not regret...
