How it Ranks: The Resort at Pelican Hill ranks #19 out of 5574 California Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the USA.

Our Take: Overlooking 54 holes of golf and the Pacific Ocean, The Resort at Pelican Hill earns praise for its relaxed ambiance and luxurious amenities. Visitors find the resort itself gorgeous — especially the impressive circular Coliseum Pool. Here you'll have your choice of bungalow or villa accommodations; villas are more spacious with separate living quarters, making them a good choice for families. No matter which type of room you choose, you will be greeted with warm neutral tones, exposed wood-beam ceilings and Italian limestone fireplaces, not to mention fantastic views of the ocean or the fairways from private terraces. Families particularly enjoy The Resort at Pelican Hill, thanks to its surf camp for teens and the Camp Pelican program with its clubhouse full of games for kids of all ages. Adults also have opportunities for some fun, like on the spectacular golf course, at The Spa at Pelican Hill and dining in one of the five eateries. You can find this hotel just south of Balboa Island along Highway 1.
