Pelican Hill…even as I say the name, I feel like bells should ring and a halo should appear somewhere. This Newport Beach hotel was nothing short of amazing: in service, food and amenities. My family and I had a great time enjoying all they had to offer, as you can see with the huge cheesy smile I gave in the pic below. Also, parents note: they have an entire kids program for the youngins (my little lady was too young, but good to know for the future). Check out my pool post here.
