Rooms on second floor (lobby level) that are located along hiking trail have little privacy. I could not open up my windows to let light in because people would be walking very close to room. & I did not have a window to actually open to let in the ocean air. Wish they had an updated spa with a salon.
The staff were great, super friendly and really pleasant - went out of their way to make the guests comfortable. My kids loved movie night with s'mores by the fire pit and the fact that I could get a cocktail at the same time was a tremendous bonus.
There were not enough umbrellas by the pool...
They upgraded the room without having to ask. great views; nice beach access and walking.
The hotel is beautiful. Food in the restaurant is very good and the spa service excelle t.

Location, interior design, great staff.
Very relaxing stay. Gorgeous beach
The wonderful view from our room and the friendly staff We had dinner at the restaurant and the staff were very friendly and the food was great
The staff member who told us(w/sleeping kids) to move rooms at 1am because Ac(blew heat) was still not working due to no maintenance worker avail til next day. Next day came & still no maintenance worker came to help us.
Beach and everything close by
rooms, pool, poolside service, lobby, staff, oceanside setting
restaurant needs an update, rather dark inside
I liked the punctuality of the staff concerning breakfast, soft spoken staff(s) made me comfortable and I felt welcome. Moreover, they applied my AAA Discount to my bill: Originally we reserved our room online and I was pleased with the lady at the desk for her courtesy. Inaddition, we were given our keys instantaniously upon our arrival without any drama. I was addressed properly and our room was very clean upon our arrival and that made us felt at home. It was a very peaceful environment. Thank you very much Sincerely Mrs. R Ademola
My spousand i brought or PC, when we log on it became impossible to log on. we were unable to use the internent during our stay. The WI-Fi was very poor during our stay and I'm assuming that next time it would be good because everythig else is. Thank you for asking
Pool was great place to relax. Great view of ocean. Needed a get away place to just chill out and relax and this place fit the bill. Will definitely come back again staff was friendly and helpful. Love this place.
It looks stunning from the pics but it's only a nice resort on the sea, not worth the money. Small pool and I had to argue to get food and drinks, I've asked five times for a menu and at the end I had to go to order at the bar.
The shower wouldn't stay hot.
Very close to the beach
The only thing was where we stayed was the access to the beach so it got very noisy in the mornings so hard to sleep in. That's about all
We chose this resort for the location and it exceeded our expectations. The staff was very friendly, the room was just as described (we will upgrade to the full ocean view next time) and the adjacent restaurant was a delight to enjoy a romantic sunset dinner. Our daughter loved the outdoor heated pool and easy access to the beach, which was also amazing. We will go back again!
The beach access and close resturant!
Friendly and accommodating staff. Marisol restaurant has the best 'Resort Hamburger' ever! Grounds were clean and trimmed. Great pool and spa! We upgraded to suite!
Initial room tub needed repair, water filled tub during shower. We reported it and upgraded; manager Louie...comp'd us at initial rate for first night in suite; we paid upgrade for remainder. I believe, although the rooms appeared clean; they were only given a "lick and a promise" between occupancy. Marble floors were dirty. Toilet seat was loose, etc. etc.
The location! Our room had an amazing view and the sun sets were priceless! Loved the restaurant Marisol's and the poolside drinks were delicious! The nightly hot tub and fire pit with the ocean view was awesome! I didn't want to leave!
Would have liked a better coffee maker in my room and free movies.
Staff was very attentive and welcoming
The staff at the cliffs were amazing!! They were very accommodating to our needs we even got a complimentary upgrade room with fire place!! Very clean and a great breakfast buffet! Would book again!!!
Nice location with a great view of the ocean. The staff was friendly, the rooms were well appointed and the beds comfortable. A nice place to stay if you want to relax.
