We stayed at the Mosselberg for three nights in the Sugarbird suite. The room was perfect, everything we could have asked for - large, spacious, and modern but still cozy with luxurious amenities. We had a beautiful unobstructed view of the ocean that we woke up to every morning. The hotel itself feels and looks like a large, modern, comfortable house with nice common areas to relax and take in the view. The pictures on the website really do not do it justice.
The breakfasts were simply fantastic: fresh, homemade, flavorful, and made to order. One morning there were fresh-baked croissants which were simply delicious, better than most croissants I've had in France! There really was nothing better than waking up to an amazing ocean view and lazily walking down to enjoy a delicious breakfast.
Be sure to make the short walk to the nearby beach. We were there in the winter during off-season, so we literally had the beach to ourselves. It was windy, deserted, and simply beautiful.
The only critique I have is that the wifi in the room and throughout the hotel was pretty much nonexistent - so don't stay here if you absolutely need the internet! Normally I am annoyed when places advertise wifi in the rooms but don't actually provide reliable internet, but I found the hotel so charming in every other way that it didn't bother me. I can't recommend this place highly enough, and would love to return someday.
