Italian in inspiration, this 5-star Newport Coast resort is perched high on a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Crystal Cove Beach, just a mile away, boasts 3 miles of sandy shoreline. The upscale Fashion Island shopping center is 3 miles from the resort. And John Wayne (Orange County) Airport is a mere 15-minute drive.

The Resort at Pelican Hill is home to two 18-hole championship golf courses designed by Tom Fazio. Most of the holes provide spectacular views of the ocean surf. You can perfect your swing at the top-notch golf academy. Or take a refreshing dip in the large, perfectly circular Coliseum Pool, lined with more than a million glass tiles. The ocean-view sundeck offers chaises longues and private cabanas. The award-winning Spa at Pelican Hill features 22 treatment rooms, a full salon, and the Acqua Colonnade with a sauna, spa tub, and herbal steam room. When it's time to dine, you'll have 5 distinctive options: the acclaimed Andrea Ristorante for Northern Italian cuisine, the poolside Coliseum Pool & Grill, the Pelican Grill for coastal California flavors, and two Italian-style cafés for specialty coffee drinks and light fare.

freindly atmosphere
amazing - incredible service
Lukman, us1 night business trip
The Resort at Pelican Hill, Newport Beach
The Pelican Hill Hotel is PURE MAGIC. It was supposed to rain on Saturday, but LUCKY US, it did not. Instead we had a beautiful view of the sun and ocean outside our room. And at night we used the fireplace in our room WHICH WE LOVED. We have already made plans to go back, but this time we will go when it is warmer so we can swim in their GLORIOUS pool!!

I expected more from Pelican Hill
Pelican Hill is a beautiful resort no arguing that, but I feel like they think that means they can slack in other areas. They promised me a ocean view room and you could only see a small line of the ocean from the room. False advertising compared to their online photos and they charge an upgrade for that room. I asked for an early check in which they said they could do, then when the room wasn’t what I expected they told me I could wait. I waited for hours and after multiple complaints they brought us prosecco. I feel like that was nice but still didn’t really make me feel better. I let it go and tried to just enjoy myself. It rained that night and after housekeeping came by they didn’t change the towels on the chairs on our patio. They were soaked so you couldn’t enjoy sitting outside. I called to ask for them to be changed and they said they would try. Why do I even need to call about this? 5 star service?? The coffee was refilled in our room but cream and sugar wasn’t, had to call. I called and asked for our trash to be removed from unwrapping presents on Christmas and I had to call several times, each time they said they would look into it or call back, waited over an hour before we finally set the trash outside the door and they came and grabbed it. We spent right under $500 for 3 people for a Xmas brunch that was not nearly as nice as when we spent Thanksgiving brunch at Montage. The pool is beautiful and the jacuzzi is just sad.
