How to Get There

Beautiful Resort

We stayed in a 2BR suite for a wedding, and there was plenty of room for our family of 6. The resort grounds are lovely, and the kids loved the heated pool. The service at the pool was friendly and attentive, and the drinks were fantastic. While we didn’t eat at the restaurants, the food at the wedding was catered on-site, and it was phenomenal. We had a chance to walk the paths along the beach to check out the other properties nearby, and Dolphin Bay is the best by far!

Absolutely fantastic!

What an amazing hotel! We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay here. It is situated north of Pismo beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Our apartment was HUGE and beautifully furnished and equipped with everything single thing you could want. It was spotlessly clean and linens and towels were of an excellent standard. We had a 2 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms and a double balcony. The sunset from this balcony was awesome. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the local deli made it easy to cater for yourself. The restaurant menu was extensive and the food looked very good but I just loved being on the balcony eating and taking in the wonderful view. We walked along the beach and there are some steps to negotiate to access it. The pool was heated and there were plenty of beds and towels. We had a great afternoon there and Ian made sure we were well looked after . The margaritas were delicious! Thank you Ian. All staff we met were so helpful and friendly but special mention must be given to Alexia and Patrick who booked us in and checked us out, they couldn’t have been more pleasant. Also Kris the car valet who not only looked after the car and luggage but helped us with a few things in the apartment and gave us some very useful tips on where to visit and eat. Absolutely great hotel and visit. My only disappointment.......we were only there for 2 nights I wish it had been more. Thank you everyone.

Gorgeous Resort right above the Pacific.

Book an oceanfront unit on the third or fourth floor; it's worth every penny! Our two-bedroom, two bath unit was very large, beautifully furnished and impeccably maintained. We were left a lovely fruit plate in the kitchen's refrigerator with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate on the plate. The Lido Restaurant is outstanding! Room service has a huge menu. Staff at this resort are very friendly and more than competent. Absolutely the best place to stay in the Pismo Beach area (pricey, but worth it!).
