Nice but worth the price?!

Reviewed 26 november, 2021

Just spent a week at The Resort at Pelican Hill, for a much anticipated golf holiday with friends. It was our first vacation since the beginning of the pandemic. The resort staff (front desk, waiters, house keepers) were very friendly and the concierge team was exceptionally helpful. Our garden view room was comfortable, but dated and ordinary- not worth the hefty daily price of $1200! The resort is vast and we felt like we were vacationing in the suburbs. We were disappointed to learn, just days before arriving that the main restaurant (Andrea's) was closed for the week, as was the South Golf Course for much of the week. It would have been nice to know this prior to booking. Breakfast service in the hotel restaurant does not open until 8 am which doesn't work for early tee-times or early risers arriving from the East Coast. We used room service for breakfast each day which was adequate. We played The North Course twice and we played the newly aerated South Course once. Both courses are beautiful and challenging. We were disappointed in Oak Creek, a local inland mediocre course. We played at Shady Canyon Golf Club, which was spectacular and my favourite of the week. Our favourite restaurants for dinner were Fable and Spirit, Bluefin Japanese Cuisine and The Farmhouse at Roger's Garden. We loved our delicious lunch overlooking Laguna Beach at Las Brisas. The concierge was very helpful in booking our reservations for us and provided a car service for the closer destinations. We took long walks on the beach and enjoyed watching the surfers. One day we took a rigorous hike in Crystal Cove State Park- it was fabulous! We needed our car to get to all hikes. I am a hiker and I was disappointed that there were absolutely no good walks or hikes at the resort. Overall, a lovely, active week with friends in a beautiful part of California. That all said, this resort wasn't for me- too big, too impersonal, nowhere to walk and not worth the price.

Beyond Amazing

Reviewed 6 november, 2021

We have stayed here a couple times for special occasions and have always had great experiences and that's why I chose here to do something really special which was proposing to the my girlfriend. I cant thank Danielle and Andrew enough for their help with planning and helping me order arrangements and helping with the actual proposal. Their attention to detail and willingness to go above and beyond to make this day perfect was so appreciated. We had breakfast at the pool the next morning which was great. Service was fast and our waitress was friendly and attentive. We had the lobster Frittata and the blueberry pancakes both of which were delicious In the afternoon we laid by the pool and once again the service was great. Every time we needed a new drink the waiter was there before we even asked To top off a great day we went to the pelican grill which was amazing. The views at sunset were incredible and our waiter was really great as well. The resort communicated the special occasion from the night before and congratulated us with a nice toast. I believe our Waiter who was so great was Armin and was fun, friendly and had some great recommendations. This resort was so on top of it when we walked through the lobby several times we were greeted by name and even congratulated about the night before. I can't say enough about this resort. I've said it before and I will say it again I travel a lot for work so I have been lucky enough to stay at some great hotels and resorts however none of them compare to this resort and especially the service we receive every time we come here is top notch. Regardless if you are looking for a romantic weekend, special occasion, family getaway or a friends trip this is the resort to go to. We can't wait to go back!!

Not worth the $$

Reviewed 2 november, 2021

Not usually one to write reviews (unless it is just an outstanding experience). That said, we stayed the weekend at Pelican Hill and I was really disappointed. First off, I think our nightly rate was approximately $1,800. The breakfast was not served warm, the service at both the pool-side restaurant and at the pool was really, really slow. The hotel just appears to be way under staffed. Also, what is the deal with no late check out? Just ridiculous. After our stay (and we have family in OC so we often do little staycations from LA) I told my wife that we should just stay at little boutique hotels, get much better service & value, and not be so disappointed afterwards.

Fantastic two nights stay

Reviewed 1 november, 2021

We stayed in a bungalow as a family of 3. We booked an ocean view room and were allocated room 151. I would say this is more of a partial ocean view as it looked over the main lobby roof and gardens. The ocean view is on the right once you walk outside. We absolutely loved our stay though and wished we had a longer stay but it just means we’ll have to come back again later! The staff were polite, always friendly helpful. The room and grounds were clean and beautifully landscaped. We enjoyed dining at Pelican Grill and at the Coliseum Pool. We also utilised the free shuttle within the property and to Crystal Cove. They packed us some beach toys for our toddler which came in handy for the remainder of our holiday. Perhaps next time my husband can enjoy a round of golf! It was just a little too short on time with a busy toddler to manage a session of golf or a spa treatment this time round.

Our Housekeeping Angels Juana and Anabel were just amazing - providing personalized service with excellence!! We so appreciate all you did for us to keep our villa clean and supplied!!! Gracias!!! The room service team were delightful and we enjoyed their warm smiles every day!!! Thank you Chris, Eddie, Grace, Aubrey, Ashley, Vincent, Javier, Maria and all the team for making our daily breakfasts and occasional dinners so special! You all do a great job!!!
