The Resort at Pelican Hill Review

Adjacent to Crystal Cove State Park, this Mediterranean-style resort has spacious bungalow suites, each with Italian limestone fireplaces and marble baths, built into terraced hillsides overlooking the Pacific. The villas are larger than most suburban homes and staffed with butlers. With its wraparound terraces, the circular Coliseum Pool (inspired by the Roman landmark) is a spectacular focal point. Soothe sore muscles at a 23,000-square-foot spa, or enjoy a sunset dinner at the Andrea Ristorante, where pasta is made in-house in a temperature-controlled pasta room. Kids are treated like VIPs at Camp Pelican. The hotel is adjacent to Pelican Hill, one of the state's most renowned golf courses.
