The Resort at Pelican Hill is a luxury resort located along the Newport Coast, between Laguna Beach and Newport Beach. Perched high along the coast, set back only a few minutes from the beach, the resort has gorgeous views of the ocean and Catalina Island. Families can take a 5-minute shuttle ride to the famed Crystal Cove State Park beach, where beach chairs and umbrellas are available for resort guests. A golf course winds through the expansive grounds and there are shuttles and golf carts to transport guests around the resort. Accommodations are single-story bungalows and villas. The Resort at Pelican Hill villas feel more like a neighborhood than a hotel; it’s not uncommon to see kids riding bikes and scooters around the streets. The spacious villas have a private entrance, a clubhouse with a pool, and standout service with a concierge and butler available. The Camp Pelican Kids’ Club is a highlight, with indoor/outdoor kid-only zones and well-trained counselors. The family pool is adjacent to Camp Pelican, and counselors may take kids to swim or on mini field trips around the resort (the gelato bar is a very a popular stop). Tweens and teens have their own activity program with offsite excursions. The dramatic Coliseum pool is perfectly round and very attractive for families, as it’s huge and never more than 3 feet deep.
