My brother and I visited S&S for business. It was very pleasant and we both left wishing we could stay longer. The entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

Crazy cool place to view the unbelievable ocean. The view is truly breathtaking. The rooms are very nice. The beds are super comfy. The food at Splash is marvelous. The mini-bar in my room was very well stocked. Can't wait to get back. Excellent service.

pros: The bottom line is that almost every room faces the ocean And the views are extraordinary. The sound of the waves all night is beyond belief. The rooms are beautiful. Staff were excellent. cons: no spa services are included in the hotel room fee.

We booked a last minute trip to Laguna for a trip after Christmas. This was our first trip to Laguna Beach and wow what a great experience. We really didn't have anything planned so as soon as we got checked in I stopped off at the concierge's desk! Thank goodness I did because we met Ali North. She was amazing at helping us plan each day we were there. She pulled out all her maps and guides and started showing us everything we needed to do. She helped us get to La Jolla...which was awesome! The Aggies were playing a football game while we were there...we were worried we wouldn't have a good place to watch it. She recommended Avila's (which you can walk to) and it was perfect. Lots of TVs, great service, and great food. We went during HH and got some great deals! Make sure you stop by her desk and get help with anything you need! She would see me and my girls every morning and ask about our day before...and always remembered our names! So the hotel...it was great. The oceanfront rooms are perfect. We had 2 beds and so much room. We loved the way the bathroom is set up. The toilet is separate from the tub and vanity...which helps when 3 girls need to get ready! The pool area was very clean and a nice little bar to order from. The beach was pristine. We even saw a few dolphins early one morning. My crazy kids even got in the water! And if you want umbrellas or chairs on the beach just check with someone at the pool! We had lunch at the hotel one day and it was yummy...fish tacos for the win! My husband was BFFs with the valet guys. He loved them...they were always very polite and accommodating. Giving us driving recommendations wherever we were doing. And always remembering his name!
