My wife and I travel quite a bit and we generally stay at 5 star hotels. When I brought my wife here for her birthday we were blown away. The view is absolutely amazing (you have to get an ocean view room). We were welcomed with a nice bottle of champagne, chocolates, and a rose which was a very classy touch. The room smelt like someone recently used the fireplace but only used cozy smelling, "comfort" wood (pine maybe? I have no idea). The breakfast in the morning was pretty good but the view, classical music, and breakfast room made it an amazing experience. I kept looking at other people in the room, thinking that they must be famous or filthy rich to be here. In other words I felt like I was dining with royalty. This is now our special place that we come when we need a good escape.
