We arrived and were placed in a room on a floor where all of the rooms appeared to be under renovation. We endured workmen arriving at 7 to 8 am, hammering and talking. To add to this, there were strong paint fumes and other odors. We asked for a room in another area, but were

First time using this property. The one bedroom suite was huge with signs of recent updates (LED lighting, lovely walk-in shower, convection microwave oven). The view out our patio door of the ocean was lovely (see sunset pic with this review). Enjoyed the hot tubs each day

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.
