    Really great food and kid friendly... But also dog friendly. I'm a dog lover, but we had a chihuahua in the room next to us who barked all day and all night.

    Spa amenities free for guests: sauna, eucalyptus steam, indoor jacuzzi, 3 saline pools, outdoor jacuzzi, gym, exercise classes. Guided hike or stroll along beach yourself. "Fresh" brand spa products.

    Location, location, location. I recommend a room on top level with partial or full ocean views. Garden views can be iffy depending where your room is located. We stayed in 20 308, awesome room/view.

    here are four amazing restaurants on the property. If you love wine, head to the four-star Miro restaurant, which features a 12,000-bottle wine cellar.

    Perfect combination of luxurious beachside resort and wholesome getaway. The food is incredible and makes it easy to be good, and there's great hiking in the area.

    Spend some time in one of the hot tubs, even if it's chilly outside - they are very hot! Try the one in the spa if you want to stay indoors - there's no extra charge for hotel guests to use it.

    Run or walk towards the pier and rock break...at low tide you can access the "secret beach"

    The bistro and spa cafe have great food. We got married here 10 years ago and everything about this hotel is great!!

    Beautiful spot. Held an event there and staff took care of us well. Good food, spacious conference rooms.

    Ask for them to shuttle you to your room upon arrival. Even with the map, you won't be able to find it & it's a hard walk on hills and stone grounds in stilettos with luggage in tow.

    No one ever hangs out at the end of the pool near sunset so it's a great time to go!

    When making a reservation, try to book a room in Villa 10 to get prime location between the beach and Resort Pool.

    Bacara needs to retrain staff! $1400 a nite & u have this? Also, bellman should tell u about property highlights when escorting upon c/I & the room, F/D Should never say No until there's no options!

    If you like hilly bike rides and/or downhill skating, the road out to the utility road of the resort is super fun, plus the hill back towards hollister will kick your ass for real.

    Make sure they clean the hot tub in the spa before you walk in. Make sure they don't just forget to clean your room. And don't pay a $35 corkage fee at the bistro. At the pool they will just open it.

    Villas on ground floor near the pool (building 9) is a great location.

    The property is gorgeous. I can see why the Bennifer was planning to get married here.

    Avoid walking barefoot on the beach. Apparently oil leaks out "naturally" and you'll find tarballs on the beach. We seen a bunch of people wiping tar off their feet after a walk on the beach.

    I know I sound like a snob when I say this, but RENT THE MORE EXPENSIVE CABANA. It's not just about the mini fridge or the tv, but the cheaper cabanas are dirty, have bad service, and have no privacy.

    What a disappointment! Overrated and overpriced. The first room I was in the AC did not work as had stained sheets. The new room had dead bugs on the shower ceiling and the drain backed up! 👎👎👎
