This review is only for the Spa rooms. This room was fantastic for a romantic getaway. The view is incredible but the best part is that it is totally private. The room has about 25-30 ft of glass walls looking out over the ocean. There was absolutely no need to close the curtains since no one could look in. My wife and I spent much of time naked (and in the tub) with this great view. We only closed the curtains to keep the room dark. Even most of the outside deck was private. We later compared this room to the next-door Highlands Inn and were very grateful that we chose the Tickle Pink Inn. The Highlands Inn Spa room is on two levels, neither of which were private. In addition, the Highlands Inn was $300 more per night!
My (very minor) complaints (I am nitpicking here folks!):
I will admit the Tickle Pink Inn is not as modern as it could be and it could use a small microwave. It did have a nice flat panel TV and DVD player. The morning breakfast and the afternoon wine/cheese were nice, but could use some variety. The wireless connection was a bit tenuous from our room (#32). Still, we had a perfect 2nd honeymoon.
