Overlooking the Pacific Ocean along California's Newport Coast, the 504-acre Pelican Hill Resort offers guests "next-level luxury" (Travel + Leisure) with Tuscan-style Bungalows that, starting at 847 square feet, are larger than many city apartments. Each Bungalow or Villa comes with a limestone fireplace, marble bath, private patio or terrace and wood-beam ceilings.

The expansive property features six restaurants ranging from upscale Italian with homemade pasta to poolside California fare. Plus it's got one of the largest circular swimming pools in the world, a 5-star spa and two Tom Fazio-designed golf courses that look out over the water. A shuttle transports guests across the enormous resort and lush landscape, as well as down to the beach at Crystal Cove. Those staying in Villas can also access amenities at the 10,000-square-foot Villa Clubhouse, which includes a comfy reading area by a fireplace, game tables and a separate glass-tile pool.

Great place for family get togethers. Lots of space in Villas.

The rooms were nice and spacious. It has potential to be great, but they HAVE to work on their level of service and creating a better environment for guests particularly those without children or who opted to leave their children at home.

We were told the wait for brunch was "over an hour", however when we went online and made a reservation in that exact moment, we got in in 30 minutes. When seated they were out of napkins and we were given paper cocktail napkins. The brunch buffet was empty and they weren't properly refilling items in a timely manner. The pool was over-run by lots of loud screaming kids and zero ambient music. You can't charge this much for a hotel and have this poor of service. Particularly if you label yourselves as five-star.

It would be good to have trash receptacles around the property. We brought our dog and we had no place to leave the poop bags. It would be nice to have a separate sidewalk to get to the main street.

My package was to include a credit for a spa service which I tried to schedule online prior to my arrival. I tried 3 times but system was not working. Since I was only staying for one night I asked while I was there if I could schedule my time while I was still on vacation in the area for the next couple of days and was told no.... this is not ok.... I am quite disappointed....
