Expert Review

Hovering atop a 150-foot bluff above the Pacific Ocean, this peaceful and estate-like Ritz-Carlton is the stay of choice for sophisticated visitors seeking luxury, fabulous service, and all the accoutrements of a grandiose lifestyle. Multiple outdoor pools, tennis courts, a spa, and a fine-dining restaurant with drop-dead gorgeous ocean views are some of the perks. Not to be overlooked is ENO, a tasting room with more than 300 wines and a fine selection of international cheeses and chocolates. Not all of the 396 rooms have views of the sea, but every room has a glorious feather bed, 42-inch flat-screen TV, and marble bath.
