Casa Del Mar creates a romantic beach-getaway ambience, replete with coastal-inspired decor, jacuzzis, flat-screen TVs and personal patios. Opening its doors in 1926 as a beach club, the hotel underwent a revamp in 2014 that brought the hotel’s fixtures firmly into the 21st century while retaining much of its 20th-century details. A graceful double staircase, high coffered ceilings and mosaic floors are just a few of those specific touches. The hotel also offers two excellent restaurants – Catch for fresh seafood and the Terrazza Lounge for Italian cuisine with a California twist.
