This Loews resort
sits on its own 15-acre private peninsula and has some serious panoramic views of San Diego across the bay. The hotel sits across the highway from a state beach and is a short walk to the beach. Just in front of the front door is an 80-slip private marina. Luxury is spelled out all over the hotel from the moment a valet jumps out to help you with your luggage and car to the moment you walk in the front lobby and marvel at the beautiful and stately grand staircase.
The complex is huge. The rooms are located in five buildings all wrapping around the three sprawling pools. We were happy with our room, as it had a wonderful pool view, and it was easy for me to sit and read a book while still watching the kids swim. Each room has a distinct beach-house feel to it, full of yellows, light blues, and whites.
The hotel was great with kids. On check-in, they were each given a treasure map that required them to explore the resort. There were questions like,"how many stairs does the grand staircase have" or "how many video games are in the arcade." Once all the correct answers are found, you turn your map into the Marketplace for a free ice cream. This was spring break, and the hotel was full of kids. The had an extensive kids' program with things happening every day.
The spa looked great! My favorite item was that they will come and draw a bubble bath in your room and give it a theme--anything from a recovery bath complete with a bowl of hot chicken soup to the romance package with champagne and strawberries.
The hotel was a little further out than I would have liked. We were really here to explore San Diego, and the drive in was a bit of a schlep each time we came or went. Although the guard gate is great for security, it also adds to the time getting in and out.
This property may not have been right for us on this trip, as we really wanted to do city-exploring. However, as a self-contained resort, it's top-drawer. It's the kind of place you should really check in to and not leave. There was so much going on, and the setting was perfect; we actually felt guilty about going into San Diego! I would love to return here and just stay at the pool, order room service, and do the spa. This is a resort that can stand on its own.
