A couple of weeks ago we were able to return to the west coast for a brief. One good thing about the Wyndham system is that we can reserve parts of weeks. And if we have extra we can work that out, also. We stayed at Dolphin’s Cove in Anaheim. We had reserved a week starting on Friday, but were not able to go until Monday. So our son came down from the Northwest on Friday and my brother-in-law who lives in the LA area came over for a weekend getaway, also. Then we joined the group on Monday.
Dolphin’s Cove is strategically located within walking distance of Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure. It is about five minutes from Anaheim Stadium, home of the Angels. And it is approximately a 15-20 minute drive to Huntington Beach, part of the 42 miles of beach along the coast by Anaheim.
We drove to Huntington Beach and walked along the track beside it for a short while. But that was not the reason for our visit. I am an avid Dodger fan. We didn’t go to Angel Stadium right beside us, but we drove the freeways to Dodger Stadium four times. Sorry, Angel fans, I didn’t go there. Although the Dodgers came home on a winning streak, they managed to lose three to the Diamondbacks before coming back to beat the Cubs. That was a downer for the trip, but it did not ruin the good times we did have there.
It was our first visit to Dolphin’s Cove. We found it to be a quiet and quaint resort. It is off the main path just enough to remain close to Disneyland and other local amenities, but out of the line of the major traffic arteries. The rooms there are not among the fanciest Wyndham Resorts we have experienced. However, the grounds are among the prettiest. The flowers, the trees, the quiet walkways all nestled between the buildings and around the pool and hot tub—they were amazing! The staff was friendly and the service more than adequate. We stayed in a two bedroom deluxe and our son used a one bedroom. They were spacious and very well furnished.
We generally choose our vacation timeshare resorts for the location, amenities and access to local attractions. Others choose according to the luxury of the resort. If luxury is the primary factor influencing your choice, there is a WorldMark Resort right there, and even a little closer to Disneyland. We dropped by to see it while we were there. It is more upscale than Dolphin’s Cove; but , the price is also more upscale. We do have access to that WorldMark, as well as to many others.
