A most beautiful hotel, near the ocean, with friendly helpful staff. We've gone there for many years and always enjoyed it. Under new management, there are some changes. The staff is friendlier, but the former staff were on the sidewalk outside protesting the loss of their jobs. That concerned us, even though we appreciated the readiness of current staff to respond to our requests. The restaurant is closed although they still serve some food in the bar. We missed being able to eat there, and hope the restaurant will reopen. We love the buildings, the architecture, the abundance of flowers, the welcoming fire in the fireplace and the ambiance, so we will return.
