My husband and I were on a 'second honeymoon" for our 27th anniversary and this could not have been a better hotel for us. Breath taking views of both the cove and ocean, a bottle of wine and chocolates were waiting for us in our room at check in since they knew it was our anniversary. We used the hot tub both nights and had it all to ourselves! Looking up at the stars while in the spa was amazing. Their wine/cheese happy hour was lovely out on the Terrace Patio from 4;30-6. Breakfast was nice, not outstanding but at least it is served from 7-10 every day and you can have it delivered to your room at no extra charge. We also rented old classic movies each night after a long day of touring and exploring. You MUST drive Big Sur in a convertible if you can and visit the Point Lo Bos State Park...we saw seals with their pups and whales migrating...the hotel will let you check out binoculars! We had lunch and shopped at Carmel by the Sea area, ate a fabulous dinner at Mission Ranch Inn (Clint Eastwood owned) and ordered dinner from Pacific Edge restaurant at the hotel next door for some late night food.
It could not have been a nicer hotel, rooms with views and every detail spot on! One of our favorite memories from our trip to CA! We stayed in Room #5 and we liked it as you had both cove and ocean views and you could pull your car right up in front of room...no stairs for luggage!
