Situated half way between San Francisco and Los Angeles, Pismo Beach is a picturesque vacation spot on California's central coastline. The AAA 4-Diamond Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa is a luxurious oceanfront retreat for romantic couples and family vacationers alike.
The hotel is made up of spacious one- and two-bedroom suites ranging from 1,000 to 2,100 square feet. Each private entrance opens to large apartment-style suites complete with full kitchens, laundry facilities, private balconies and complimentary Wi-Fi. Although there is no air conditioning in the units, the hotel's proximity to the ocean allows for cool coastal breezes, adding to the beach setting. Select one-bedroom suites have fireplaces, while two-bedroom accommodations provide either Jet Aire tubs or fireplaces.
Soak up some sunshine with a dip in the outdoor pool and hot tub, or stroll along the coastline of Shell Beach. Complimentary bicycle rentals are also available with maps of nearby coastal trails. Other activities in the area include sipping wine at the boutique wineries of San Luis Obispo County, driving an hour to explore the grandeur of Hearst Castle or hitting some balls at some of the vast golf facilities in the area.
The hotel houses Lido at Dolphin Bay, a casual yet elegant dining experience overlooking the ocean, an idyllic backdrop for a romantic evening. Farmers and wineries come together to serve delicious farm-to-table fare with fresh ingredients from the local area.
