A Little Caribbean in California

Mandalay Beach Resort Hoytel at Sunset photoTake the family on a holiday resort in the tropics or Caribbean without ever leaving California? Head to Oxnard. Yes, where the traffic slows on the 101 Highway and the endless malls of Southern California meet the sea coast. Mostly known for its world famous Strawberry Festival and air show at Pt. Mugu, Oxnard is thought of as just another exit on the California Coast Highway on the way from Los Angeles up the coast to Santa Barbara, but there is a tropical oasis to be found tucked away behind the sleepy agricultural suburbia of the largest city in Ventura County.

Embassy Suites Hotel Oxnard photoThere are very few hotels in California that are actually on the beach. Some are above the beach on a cliff, some around the corner and down the street or across the highway. The Mandalay Beach Resort is one of the blessed few oceanside hotels where you can walk out of your all suites room and right into the sand wiggling between your toes. Or if toe winggling is not you idea of a good time, ride the popular pedibikes for rent. Race your family or friends along the beach once used as a movie location of the silent era classic “The Shiek” where Rudolph Valentino melted women in his romantic dusky eyes, with the sand dunes doubling for the sands of the Sahara. The clean wide sandy beach here became known as “Hollywood Beach” for the movie stars of the golden age of Hollywood who would come for an escape from Los Angeles, only an hour away. The Mandalay Beach Resort was also recently used by the television series “Cane” as a location for a Caribbean resort.

Family Value California Luxury Vacation photoThe Mandalay Beach Resort is part of the Hilton Hotels Embassy Suites brand. With its waterfalls and palm trees, gourmet dining restaurant, 248 elegantly furnished guest suites and 6 opulent Presidential Suites the property feels like an all year round trip to the islands. Golf, water sports, scuba diving, whale watching are all nearby in decidedly uncrowded and mostly undiscovered Oxnard, with its harbor that rivals Huntington Beach farther to the south (but with lower prices) and cruises to the Channel Islands only 14 miles out and outlet shopping 15 minutes away in Camarillo.

Lobby Hilton Embassy Suites Oxnard photoThe Mandalay Beach Resort Embassy Suites Hotel offers spa salon services, night lighted tennis courts, large swimming pool with waterfall motif, fitness center, bicycle and boogie board rental, local airport shuttle, complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast and a hosted evening happy hour reception for hotel guests (that's free drinks friends!), though the tab varies depending on the value of your room. A good excuse for the Presidential Suite. The award winning Capistrano Restaurant serves the most popular Sunday Brunch on the southern central coast. The all-suites concept offers good value for families, with many returning to the Mandalay Beach Resort year after year, for one of the best vacation values on the California coast. Special winter off-peak packages add extra value in the off-season, and as anyone who’s seen the Rose Bowl on TV knows sometimes the best weather and best sunsets in the golden state are when the days are short - and don't forget summers are cooler on the coast. © Bargain Luxury Travel
