I went there for 3 days 2 nights for a business meeting. After reading posts on "trip advisor", I was looking forward to rest and relaxations.
Hotel is actually right on the Pacific Ocean. I would call this place a "large boutique" hotel.
Lobby is actually very small but friendly staff. My room wasn't ready (checked in at 1:30 PM) so I waited outside while overlooking the ocean....not a lot of stuff do there at the hotel.
My room had a fantastic view of the ocean (just steps away). I was mesmerized from the view when I stepped out onto the balcony. I was so looking forward to next few days. Room was pretty decent size but the closet was tiny. If you were staying there with your significant other or a family, it would not fit in there. Bed was excellent (comfort).
I have been told that the sound of waves actually puts people to sleep but it was not the case with me. First night was the worst - storm & sound of waves. Noise coming from the waves was just unbearable. There was zero sound proofing on the sliding door to the balcony. I tried to use the earplugs that were provided but that did not work. I had to turn on the t.v. to drown out the noise coming from outside. Didn't get any sleep the first night.
I decided to leave early the second night after returning to the room and and the noise level coming from outside again was unbearable.
This is a beautiful hotel and the view is fantastic. Staff is great!
Unfortunately, sound of waves is not for everyone!
