Service was spectatular, delivered in a safe and caring manner. Our experience was relaxed and luxurious as we sensed that our health and well-being were paramount, that staff truly cared about us and were focused on making our time at Pelican Hill memorable in only the most exceptionally gratifying and enjoyable way. We were so impressed with our Monday late lunch that we booked rooms for an extended upcoming birthday celebration. We eagerly look forward to being so well cared for once again.

Wonderful food at a first rate resort in Newport Beach. My family and I dined at the Coliseum Grill several times during our recent vacation and everyone enjoyed their food(both dinner and brunch). We dined on the patio overlooking the resort's beautiful pool. It was a little chilly but luckily the staff brought out heating lamps that kept us comfortable. All around a great experience.

I have always enjoyed the Coliseum ambiance, views and food for special occasions. We decided to have a few friends get together for a birthday celebration. Reservations were easy and the staff could not have been more accommodating. Everyone was respectful Covid-wise. Our server was Valentina and she did such an awesome job of making everyone comfortable .... she made the whole evening that much better. I highly recommend this venue ..... it is difficult to beat.
