Lavish Amenities

With a 4-Diamond rating, the Pacific Terrace offers lavish amenities that you would expect to see at a much larger resort. The well-appointed rooms and suites all have private balconies or patios, from which most have a partial or full ocean view. In-room dining and massage services are also available for your privacy and convenience.

Because this boutique beach hotel is not massive, the customer service is top-notch. The multilingual staff can assist you with dining reservations, tour arrangements, and special requests. You’ll notice the difference at every level of interaction, from the friendly valets to the front desk to the concierge. Be sure to stop by the lobby for coffee in the morning or grab a freshly baked cookie for an afternoon snack. The hotel has a full hot breakfast buffet daily and a tropical bar near the pool for delicious cocktails, complementary non-alcoholic drinks, and snacks. Full meals can also be brought to your poolside or to your room.
