We stayed here a couple years ago and had been thinking about returning the moment we left. We tried to book 7 months in advance for a trip last year, and it was too late. Booked. Went to the Caribbean instead. This time we booked a year in advance. All the rooms are right on the ocean, and we sat poolside every evening to watch the sunset, an occasional whale and surfers. Then I would put my fresh fish or Kilbi on the grill and sip cocktails. I know, awful. The breakfast is pretty simple-cerial and muffins, and the coffee is great. In winter the waves crash so loud out side your room it is surreal, but then you sleep like a baby. The rooms are old school modest and simple, but is one of my favorite hotels IN THE WORLD. I am not belittling anyones review, but I quietly pity those who can not exprerience the joy.
