We stayed here for one week in February. The room was in the second building above some sort of club that had a restaurant where we couldn't eat and a spa we couldn't use. The room was clean, well-maintained and roomy with a great view of the bay. However, we felt that it was a bit overpriced and found the... More

One of the best hotels in Newport Beach. It has no flaws. Beautiful views of the water. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The food is impeccable and the service unparalleled..it's a great place for couples, families and the business traveler. Don't miss this place when you go to Newport Beach. You won't be disappointed!

Everything in the restaurant made healthy eating easy. Fresh fruit with oatmeal or eggs. All sausages were chicken and bacon was turkey bacon.

Located on the Mariner's Mile stretch of PCH is the Balboa Bay Resort. Although the food is delish and the property is impeccably clean, my excellent rating for this stay is to recognize the stellar staff. From the accessible chef to the all-night room service runner, the BBR's staff are professional, attentive and here to serve. I'm even giving a... More

Imagine looking across the room at the lovely yachts and seeing a famous star ( John Wayne, Nicolas Cage, or George Segal) while enjoying your delicious lobster omelet for breakfast! !! This is the place that John Wayne made famous, but today, it's the food and service that keeps it so famous!

I stayed at Balboa Bay Club and was able to utilize some of the amenities at the Beach club since renovations were occurring during our stay. My only complaint is that there should be more service in the pool area. It is ridiculous that you have to call 'room service' from a phone to get your order placed.

I travel a ton for work and pleasure and over the years I have found the Balboa Bay Club. Sometimes I visit a place for work or for pleasure and when I return and don't have the same experience it can be disappointing. The Balboa Bay Club is so amazing and I am not sure how every trip can top... More
