This location was a surprise. From the upper level of the two floor suite the ocean view was unobstructed. To be able to sit and watch the waves was great. We loved it. Then we went to the main lobby area, which was even better set up with comfortable chairs and a telescope. The whales were right there. In twenty years of living by the ocean, this was the best whale watching experience by far. The room was comfortable and fully appointed. The hotel service was unfailing and quick to respond to requests. This space was almost too comfortable to leave!
The only reason for leaving the 5th star off was the restaurant service. It fell short of the quality of the hotel itself, especially considering the prices. Especially for dinner, you will find something much better in Carmel.
