Pavilion HotelFrom 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. every day, the Pavilion Hotel transforms from a quaint, family-friendly island hotel into a sophisticated garden party replete with wine and cheese. There were no repeat selections during our three-day stay, and the wine never ran dry. It’s arguably the best perk (complimentary, too!) at this boutique hotel sitting across from the Pacific Ocean. Kids will appreciate the running room in the central grass courtyard and the proximity to the beach; adults will appreciate the happiest hour of the day.
