          Sometimes the pool gets a bit crowded but never excessive like larger hotels... even when it's a bit busy it's always a relaxed place to be..the servers keep you happy with food and drink!

          Hello, I will be coming from Boston for 4 nights to celebrate my 50th in secrecy alone. Not that I don't look every day of it 😉. I am a social person and would enjoy the sun if it's out. Can you smell the seals from this hotel? How much is an uber/ shuttle to Del Mar or a beach? I don't mind a walk. Just looking for the right balance of fun and beauty. Do you recommend? I enjoy live music and hidden gems. Many thanks.
