My sisters and I spent a perfect week in one of Dalvay's cottages - it was everything we couldnhave hoped for and more. The old hotel is the picture of elegance but not at all stuffy, the staff is charming, the cottages are lovely, the location is spectacular, the food is delicious... I could go on. We traveled around the island quite a bit and fell absolutely in love. When we come back, we'll definitely stay at dalvay by the sea again. A few tips - no phones in the rooms, which is nice but also annoying; Richard's fish shack down the road has the most incredible lobster rolls, fish and chips, and lovely salads - really superb, and much cheaper than the Dalvay dining room; bring lots of bug spray; since the hotel is located inside a national park, you need to buy a permit for the car (about $20/day, I think), but only if you arrive when the ranger booth is open - we saved money once or twice by stopping at a gallery on the road home for 20 minutes or so, so we'd arrive after 6 pm. Anyway - if you're debating, just go for this. It's heaven. I can't wait to bring my husband - I'm sure it's as perfect for romance as it was for sisterly bonding.
