I will start with the service because it stood out. Every staff we encountered established eye contact, initiated and engaged us in conversation without being intrusive, offered help and ensured we had what we needed, even anticipated our needs. We were able to check in before 8AM and check out at 3PM.
The hotel itself has luxurious finishes in the public areas and rooms (please see photos). The room (we had a coastal view) was on the smaller side, but was simply yet well appointed. The bathroom had marble floors, walls, and vanity, crystal lights. The word opulent comes to mind. The gym has floor to ceiling windows facing the ocean. The grounds and setting are breathtaking! With the bluff, the Pacific Ocean... (See photos.) There is a path to the beach but you can use the shuttle if you prefer not to walk. The small details and special touches - fresh flowers, fragrant smell in the lobby, complimentary beach and pool toys, beach umbrellas, etc make for an experience I would love to repeat. It is a great place to relax or have some fun time with family or pamper yourself.More
