Family Adventures

an experience unlike any other

A Mediterranean-inspired sanctuary spread across 504 acres of rolling California coastline, this spectacular setting will inspire your imagination and delight your senses.

From the neighborhoods of oversized Bungalows and residential Villas to the dazzling Coliseum pool with the Pacific just beyond, you will discover a celebration of the seasons through culinary delights, signature spa treatments, and a bounty of activities that will personalize your adventure. 



Dip your feet into one of the most strikingly unique pools anywhere – and the heart of Pelican Hill®.

Brilliant blue, the Coliseum Pool is an extraordinary aqua circle of delicate mosaic tile that is heated to a perfect temperature every day of the year. Our youngest guests can jump-start the day with Morning Splash, an hour each morning where kids rule the water in fun floats and inflatables. Three feet deep, the Coliseum pool invites lounging and some occasional laps, with a sweeping ocean view as your backdrop.
