ABOUT THE AREA
Capistrano Beach is not the traditional “city,” but its charming small town atmosphere and myriad of recreational opportunities have christened it a viable vacation destination. Branching off from the city of Dana Point, “Capo Beach” is also bordered by the vivacious Laguna Beach to the north and San Clemente to the south. As one of the few remaining "beach towns" in the busy Orange County area, Capo Beach has (impressively) avoided much of the commercialization common to the area. This makes for a great, uncongested stay full of outdoors fun, beach strolls, whale watching, sailing, shopping, dining, and enjoying the beautiful weather of South California.

Fantastic location, great condo and wonderful amenities!!! Will definitely stay again!!
Location and all amenities were as advertised. I would definitely stay again with my family and next time for more days. We had a great time.
Property was great, lot better than I expected, especially since I grew up in the area. Will stay there again. Great mellow stay, really liked the grill on the oceanview patio, I was grilling with friends everynight!
I enjoyed the entire area. Very relaxing, lovely pool and whirlpool spas. Staff was friendly and accommodating!
I was worried about this resort from other reviews I found, so between that and the low cost we went in with pretty low expectations, but we were SO pleased with our stay! Our one bedroom suite was very comfortable, big enough for our family of five (three kids under 5) to spread out, and we had a great view of the ocean. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook on site, and we made full use of the BBQ grill. There were trains passing by regularly, but the noise didn't bother us and my boys loved watching them pass.
The resort hosted family activities throughout the week including poolside bingo and a coloring contest which our kids loved. They did try to get us to a sales presentation for their time share product, but we were not able to attend with our young kids.
I think the resort is a good midway point between big attractions like SeaWorld (60 min) and Disneyland (40 min), but we spent all of our time in Dana Point. We especially loved the small Baby Beach right by the Ocean Institute where the kids could play in the sand and wade in the still water. We would love to come back!
