Great Hotel on the Bay
Cool resort on the water, great outdoor seating with fire pits, and excellent service!

Exceptional 10.0
I really didn’t realize I booked such a beautiful hotel. The staff was excellent. Everything was clean and beautiful. There is one thing, but I don’t know what they can do about it, we were in the main building, there are 54 rooms per floor, we were in room 252, and the elevators are near room 201. It was a long walk. Maybe anyone with mobility issues should take a note of that and ask for a room near the elevator.

I arrived extra early thinking i would hang out til check-in and to my surprise the room was ready. My wife arranged a birthday surprise and the resort was very accommodating. Greetings birthday balloons and cookie at the front desk. Complimentary champagne and chocolate covered strawberries waiting in my room. Everything was so nice

Great Place For The Whole Family
The resort itself was really beautiful but the service and staff friendliness was over the top. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. We will definitely be coming back again.
Antonia, us2 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
Resort was amazing, beautiful place, great food, friendly workers. My only complaint (or maybe it is my luck) is that I got a room facing PCH and there was too much noise. I will more than likely pay extra for a Pool/Bay view next time I visit the resort.

Enjoyable splurge
After hosting an event, a friend and I splurged for a bayview room with balcony. From valet to check out, service was good. I especially enjoyed the pool and service as well.I suggested to manager to have a microwave available in the café/deli downstairs, as I had to lug my own microwave to heat leftovers. I hope he follows through on this idea, as most hotels provide a microwave (whether in room, or delivered, or available in a public area). Overall, an enjoyable stay.

Very Good 8.0
Beautiful hotel, but housekeeping not so good.
Hotel was beautiful. Loved the decor. Friendly staff. Large n newly remodeled rooms. However, room was not very clean. I can't see very well n I could clearly see dirty fingerprints on doors. Class countertop dirty. Floor corners had not been cleaned. Also can really hear people on floor above.

Excellent stay
Truly enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here again. The hotel staff was fantastic! Everything you would expect in a place like Balboa Bay. The only downside was the only bar/restaurant open was the A&O Kitchen and bar. The drinks were watered down and the dinner service was horrible! The food was very good but the servers were more interested in socializing then working.
