The first and most impressive thing about Pelican Hill is the incredible view from the balcony just past the hotel’s reception: it’s impeccable 36 holes of championship golf, surrounded by typical southern California landscape and framed by the Pacific Ocean on the background. If you’re there for sunset, the image will be printed on your mind forever. The architecture and overall feel of the property is very Italian countryside/mediterranean, with a very sophisticated yet unassuming feel to it. The property is located right in from of Cristal Cove Beach, a long stretch of protected area, so plenty of open spaces and nature yet very close to both Newport Beach and Laguna Beach. Surf is abundant in that area year round.
