Is there access to the beach?
There's better beach access at Doheney (sp?) State Park in Dana Point.

I believe the pool is heated. You need to check with the resort. I know many of the 2 bedrooms in the rear face a dirt mountain or retaining wall. There is really no view at all in the rear of the building. You MUST ask for a 2 bedroom in the front facing the ocean.

Hello Frank M, Typically, the last train stops by at midnight. We have not heard the train horn, they usually just pass by.

"A westward facing room!!!"
"Rooms facing beach smaller but nice. Rooms on back side larger."
"Ask for remodeled room."
"Loved the 2 bedroom, end unit since the pool and hot tub was very close!"
"4th floor rooms are close to covered deck; 2nd floor walkway leads to family room lounge and family pool."
