Why Stay At Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa
Super-spacious accommodations with amenity-stocked kitchens give this central California oceanfront property a home-away-from-home feel ideal for longer stays or special occasions.
Tall palms and a sweeping lawn accent this coastal resort's condo-like villas, which range from 1,000-square-foot one-bedrooms to 2,200-square-foot two-bedroom penthouse suites. Outfitted with contemporary dark wood and wicker furnishings, the 62 units feature flat-screen televisions with surround sound, iPod docking stations, walk-in closets, washer/dryer combo units, and large kitchens with granite countertops and all the accessories needed to cook up a feast. Every room has a balcony or patio, and the oceanfront ones afford views of playful dolphins and stunning sunsets. The property also offers a full-service spa, a round-the-clock fitness center, and a restaurant with more than 300 wine selections, with an emphasis on local labels. Visit Property Website
For a quieter stay, book a villa in the south building, which contains the spa; management tries to keep it adults-only.
The three penthouse suites provide gourmet kitchens with extra accoutrements such as islands, Wolf ranges, and Sub-Zero refrigerators.
