Truly this hotel lives up to the hype. The grounds are simply stunning, the check in process a breeze - and the service the best of all! From letting us check in early (so nice!), to an extra night scheduled impromptu, Pavillion staff is second to none in location, spa like setting and service. Rooms look as promised (small but wonderfully stocked) and towels/sheets/toiletries were top notch. What was most amazing was how nice the wine tasting was - great selection of about 20 wines, with a lovely cheese plate to match. Top notch Napa wines ON THE BEACH. We cannot wait to go back, and it is worth every penny. Go, don't miss this gem!

Although I felt spending over $400 for one night on a Sunday in late September was a bit much, the hotel was very nice, extremely clean even in the courtyard. Friendly, smiley and helpful staff! The wine and cheese that was included in the courtyard was fabulous. I think the wine pour must have been almost half a bottle, probably 500-600ml. The wine was good too, and the gal that served us was so nice with huge smiles. It is right on the beach, so from the seats in the courtyard, the boats and water/pier are in sight. Excellent stay for 3 of us, 1 double room with patio. The beds were extremely comfortable!

This was my first time staying here and I’m so happy with my decision. There were so many choices but this hotel is definitely a favorite! The staff was so welcoming both Juans, Francisco, Brandon, Julio, & I know there are more staff members that were exceptional! The grounds are beautiful and the location to the beach is perfect! I will recommend this to my friends and stay here again. Also, the wine & cheese happy hour is a great benefit!
