From our balcony we had an unhindered view of the cliffs and beach. We watched otters at play, pelicans soaring and a multitude of other flying or swimming creatures doing what they do.

The moment one steps into the beautifully decorated lobby, with its picturesque view, they know all is well and they are in good hands.
