El Caminante Bar & Bungalows - Dana Point's newest boutqiue Hotel

Nestled along Pacific Coast Highway just steps away from the ocean, El Caminante Bar & Bungalows has been meticulously recrafted and features highly ornate Spanish hacienda inspired design including custom Saltillo tile flooring, hand-painted Talavera tile murals, authentic antique Monterey furniture, vintage light fixtures and hand-carved Dutch-doors. The hotel has 30 intimate bungalows, including the the “El Camino” luxury suite with its own in-room wet bar, and a master casita called “The Hacienda” with a 400 square foot ocean view private deck. Embracing the spirit of Old California, every room at El Caminante offers expansive views of Capistrano Beach and Doheny State Beach.

Hotel and room amenities have been hand selected to enhance the guest experience and include plush king beds outfitted with sustainable fine Italian linens made by Bellino, jersey knit hooded bathrobes, 100% cotton slippers and Dyson hair dryers. A curated, premium mini bar complete with high-end beverages and snacks will also be available in each room.  Vinyl record players paired with an accompanying collection of albums ranging from the 1920’s to present day help set the mood for El Caminante guests. Spa services are available upon request.

Cultivating leisure and connection, El Caminante provides guests the opportunity to explore one of the region’s most serene beach towns with a number of wellness-focused offerings such as sound bath sessions, complimentary electric bikes, CA State Park passes, Hyperice massage equipment and ALO Moves app workouts. Marrying the sophistication of traditional Spanish architecture with California’s coastal allure, El Caminante invites Orange County locals and visitors from around the world to enjoy and unwind in the Golden State’s newest travel, dining and social gathering destination.

El Caminante is a seaside escape tailored for adult guests. All reservations must be made by guests over 21 years of age.
