"Restaurant needs to step it up a notch."
This is a beautiful property but for the $$$$, the restaurant menu, food quality and selection is very weak. They have a beautiful deck/patio overlooking the ocean so the view is outstanding. Had brunch here twice & both visits were disappointing. Servers are very friendly but service was lacking. Coffee was lukewarm, tea selections were poor for the $4.00 price for a cup of tea and although I can't say the prices are overly outrageous--but for the price you expect better. Great place to have a drink & watch the sunset but for fine dining--there are better choices.
The patio off our garden view room was lovely, the bed was very comfortable and the finishes throughout the room were cozy and beachy. A wine hour or other complimentary service would be a nice addition considering the price of the hotel and the gym could be a bit newer and more user friendly. Cruiser bikes and tennis is included, which is very nice.
"Hideaway in Del Mar"
We enjoyed our visit, and will return. The room was set up well; the bathroom was nicely done with marble and a standing shower. The Coastal King we reserved only had an ocean view if you went out on the balcony and looked sideways; otherwise it was a view of the dining terrace and other rooms. Service was great throughout. Spa services were also excellent.
"Nice property and staff but spoiled by private parties"
My family of four stayed here for a Friday - Sunday long weekend in November. The property is attractive and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and professional. The gentleman that checked us in several hours early ran halfway to the beach to catch us and let us know that our room just became available. Unfortunately the hotel hosts private parties almost every night (wedding parties, theme parties) which close down large sections of the public areas and play loud music in the central courtyard until 11pm. We're from the east coast so 11pm felt like 2am and was especially painful. This happened both nights of our stay. We were given complementary tickets to the "Bing Crosby" party worth about $130, but it wasn't really a family type event. In my opinion, this small property cannot support both the private parties and hotel guests at the same time. The parties should be required to rent out the whole property. I would not stay again unless I was assured that no parties were happening during my stay.
"Beautiful but a bit disappointed."
Wonderful room. Great beds. Bottled water should be complimentary ($9) per large bottle is insulting considering the price of this property. Restaurant menus not appealing. Went elsewhere. Very nice staff
