Stayed here a few nights March 2013 for our anniversary. Service right from check-in was excellent and attentive. We booked an Ocean room which was very comfortable and had a great view. We especially enjoyed the fireplace which the resort kept ready every night. Weather cooperated and we saw whales right from the balcony on the clear afternoons. The spa experience was fine (no better or worse than other high end spas). Morning yoga in the yurt was a good way to start the day and the breakfasts were good. Only major negative was dinner at the restaurant. First, it is a prix fixe menu though they do allow you to order a la carte if you really want. Second, the menu is quite inventive (lots of unusual combinations of ingredients) BUT the execution is poor. The dishes were flat and much less tasty than they should have been. The fact that the waitress lost our order and so our meal was over an hour delayed certainly did not help. Thankfully we ordered some great wines and enjoyed them and the sunset. So net, great place I would go back to but would dine elsewhere.
better than expected: Service, Room, SPA, Yoga, local Hikes
worse than expected: Dinner
room tip: splurge for the Ocean room. Expensive but then why else would you stay here?
