Everything about The Alexander is quality. From the irrepressible Travis and the entire staff, to the tastefully decorated suites and amazing sea views (sigh)...
we spent our first night in the amber room which exceeded my expectations I must admit, (the pictures don't do it justice) the partial sea view was no bother at all.
The next 2 nights we moved up to the penthouse suite with its ample private deck and pool...fab, fab, fab! Gazing up at the heavens to the sound of gently crushing waves is a thing of beauty.
Because the guest house doesn't do lunches or dinners, Travis was kind enough to proactively pre book a couple of restaurants for us to choose from (nice touch, since it was the busiest time of the year)
The courtesy shuttle driver was very pleasant and was right on time, every time.
I can go on and on about this place but the best way to believe me is to visit and experience it.
We are definitely going back!
