          Great place with a sense of history. Friendly staff recommended very nice restaurants, and we also enjoyed two evenings of drinks and dinner on the back porch, with wonderful ocean views. We highly recommend the Emerson Inn for a fun or romantic getaway.

          thank you soo much for your response. we stayed at the top to much of a uneven hike to go down by the water. there were like someone stated trails about a mile from the hotel
          Dear Novotel: I have been unable to find an email contact for the hotel directly. My daughter is celebrating her 1st anniversary there with her husband in a couple of weeks. I wanted to do something for them as a "surprise", upgraded room/ flowers, etc. Have been completely unable to reach anyone via email, phone results in language barrier and I do not want to make a phone call directly to the hotel (as it is out of the country) I'm hoping this note will get passed on to the hotel manager and they will contact me so I can make these arrangements with them. monti51197@yahoo
