Arrived from work on Fri PM (around 8PM). Valet took my car, luggage....I checked in...and my jaw dropped when I saw my room! Sleigh beds! A private balcony overlooking the water (all rooms do) with really cool louvered sliders instead of curtains. I went to dinner around 9. Always feel a little uneasy dining alone, but I was made to feel perfectly at east by the staff. I had a wonderful server, Nora (ask for her!)...she actually was my server for the 4 meals I at MBH. While the weather was not 'beachy', it was moderately sunny, if cool on Sat and I sat and read on my balcony, listening to the waves lapping on shore! I took advantage of the Spa with a hotstone massage...while not the best I've ever had, it was still wonderful! I felt TOTALLY relaxed. I had a couple of glasses of wine, and went to dinner. There were other groups of women there celebrating events...a great place for that sort of thing! I definitely hope to be back...perhaps early Fall! There are only about 35 rooms at this hotel, so you definitely feel taken care of. I thought the food was wonderful. I wouldn't want to eat there more than 2 nights in a row, however. I had 2 observations/slightly negative comments: there is no full length mirror in the room I was in (strange...plenty of place to hang one!) and I was a little offput this AM that I had not been informed about brunch starting at 10:30 and breakfast ending before 10. I had assumed that I would be able to eat breakfast like yesterday AM, but for extended hours, because of the brunch! I did not want to pay the exorbitant price of $38.00 for brunch for myself. Other than those 2 things, I had a wonderful time, the staff is very friendly and eager to please, and I look forward to returning like I mentioned, hopefully in the Fall!
