The Rotterdam film festival is famous for of its unique variety of international movies and for being very visitor-friendly. The Rotterdam film festival shows mainly alternative, innovative and non-commercial movies made in Asia or third world countries, but also Hollywood blockbusters can be viewed here!

" I came here for a work conference. The hotel is beautiful and the staff were very accommodating. It is right on the beach which we were lucky enough to enjoy."

" Rooms were great. Great view of the sunset and just a few get from the bay. We bbqd and had a bonfire right there on the beach. Not to crowded either."

" It's a beautiful resort and on a lovely beach that has a gorgeous path. The hotel is nice and comfortable. The staff is exceptionally friendly. I do recommend it. But you are away from the action of San Diego, so it's useful to have a car."

" We enjoyed everything about our stay here, with one exception (discussed below). This is a place to relax and we began to do so as soon as we entered the property, which is nicely removed from the hustle and bustle so prevalent in most of San Diego County. This is not an oceanfront property, but the ocean is only about four miles away, as is the town of Del Mar, which has some nice shops and restaurants worth exploring. Access to La Jolla and San Diego is easy."
