Checking into La Valencia was a Dream. From the front door, with Valet check in, who caringly said our pile of belongings would be looked after while we checked in. When entering the outside entrance, you first notice the lovely landscaped inside garden with tables and the pictures on the old cafe windows reminding one that this will soon be another part of the beautiful hotel and that History will continue. Once in the reception area, you are bathed in a soft light that immediately soothes you and greeted by two soft spoken receptions who quickly greet you and call you by name and honor you pre requested needs and send you off to your room with that nice bell man Bob.. who shares a lot about the area. We had a lovely room with windows that open, letting in the soft breeze of the afternoon and local sounds. Also, we received a lovely bag, that included a bottle of wine and a sweet. (It was my Birthday) this was thrilling. The room had a wonderful view and from somewhere a wonder smell continue to premeate the room during our stay. We took a long afternoon stroll along the beach and had lunch at Bubba (reasonable and good food). When I returned to the room, there was a wonderful slice of cake and a birthday card from the Staff, I was delightfully surprised.. and the cake was the best. Evening brought us to the Lounge and as the Cerna played we had cocktails and relaxed and watched the fog roll in. Had a light supper there and retired around nine. Feeling as if we had spent the evening at Hearst Castle, very elegant. Morning came and we were told by Bob to that the eggs I was craving could be found at the Brockville Rest on the Beach and so we enjoyed the morning and took off for the next part of our Birthday week... Of all the hotels so far, this was the most enveloping.
