I almost don't want to review this place favorably, because it is so great! The entire hotel faces the ocean, every room has a view. The hotel sits on a cliff, 50 or so steps down to the beach. Sand Dollars on the beach, tons of shells and rocks.
The hotel is QUIET! You cannot hear anything if the sliding door is closed. No neighbors, no cars, nothing.
The only thing I would change is the temperature of the pool. It is almost warm. But I am here in the beginning of April, when it is cool outside. Two hot tubs, one is normal hot tub temperature and the other is slightly cooler.
Very clean rooms with uber-comfy beds, decent towels, ask for extra for the pool. A mini fridge in the room works VERY well. Check the settings so your things don't freeze.
Continental breakfast offers coffee, teas and juices. Oatmeal, make your own waffles, pastries and breads, fruit, yogurt and hard boiled eggs.
Overall, a wonderful stay.
