AAA Inspector Notes
Built in 1927, this lavish Spanish Colonial oceanfront resort in an exclusive area was originally the residence of a copper baron, but since then has become the private sanctuary of all who enter. Serene and lush gardens envelope each building on the sprawling 22 acres woven together with brick walkways. The original, historic nature of the property has been restored and is visible in the architecture and custom furnishings inside. A private beach and cabana club is available year-round to hotel guests during their stay while a suitable beach butler is only available in the summer time. Finally, worth noting is that you'll have a front row seat for both the sunrise and sunset at this lovely southern facing establishment along Southern California's own Mediterranean-style coastline. Smoke free premises. 207 units, some cottages. 1-2 stories, interior/exterior corridors. Accessibility (Call).

Pros: We were upgraded to a Palm Suite, which had a very calm vibe. Both pools were equally enjoyable for my wife and I but the garden pool is particularly great for kids. The Biltmore is unique in that it's multiple lixury hotel experiences in one. You've got the solitude of lush gardens, the coziness of the rooms, the Mexican / Caribbean resort feel, plus the old world glamour of the Coral Beach Club. You will not be disappointed.
