We went to the Tickle Pink for my wife and my anniversary. I had the responsibility to find a place for us to stay as we toured the coast. I read the reviews on Tripadvisor and based the hotel I chose on them, which led me to the Tickle Pink. When we arrived we were greeted at the front desk and were brought to our room. We had the Jacuzzi suite. WOW!! We were amazed at the view and the quality of the room. When I had booked with them I had let them know that it was for our anniversary and in the room they had a basket with champagne and cheese waiting for us. Since we had been driving for a while we just wanted to relax for a while so we went to sit down for a while on the bed and were amazed at the comfort of the bed! it felt like you were sleeping on a cloud! We were asleep in a matter of minutes!
Once we woke up an hour later we went out to our own private balcony which ran the entire length of the room, which is glass, facing the cove. As we enjoyed our view, we did notice the traffic driving below, but the noise was barely noticeable. And the ocean wave made up for it. We called room service, and within 5 minute they brought what we had ordered. Finally we filled the jacuzzi to enjoy a nice evening relaxing. Once done we slipped into the "o so soft" robes and watched a movie with the fireplace roaring in the background.
The next morning we asked if they could bring some of the items that they put out for breakfast to our room for us to enjoy while on the balcony. we were pleasantly surprised to have a platter overflowing with food and fruit, coffee and juices.
From staff, room service, quality of room, bedding, view, price, to just the whole experience, it was a perfect stay! We cant wait to go back!
