Great boutique hotel with amazing hospitality which starts at check-in. The bar has a nice assortment of local and area wines. Management and staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and relaxed.

The room was great but, unfortunately we had no hot water in the morning for showers. The hotel was kind enough to arrange showers at a sister property but we were promised reimbursement which I have yet to receive.

We were given complementary wine, which was a nice touch. Common areas were comfortable with a wine bar and fireplace. The staff went out of their way to greet us and were helpful. We...

Charming place, well appointed rooms, was there on a rainy day so unable to walk the beach but opened all the windows and felt the ocean breeze - nice. Underground parking, hot tub, sauna, short walk to the beach - very comfy bed and large tubs. Will definitely return.
