First stayed at this hotel about 25 years ago--it was nice then, and has now added a lot of rooms and a lobby restaurant.
The rooms have views of a large farm/corral area, complete with signature lamas. A peek of ocean is also there.
At Christmas, the whole place is beautifully decorated, even the rooms. Excellent gift shop/bookstore in the lobby. VERY dog-friendly!
A bit pricey, but worth it. A major up-or-downside is the 100% vegan restaurant. Creative, but boring after a few days. Try the sea-palm dinner--local tidepool plants much different from kelp!
