Our two bedroom condo was wonderful as always. They have a cute Bistro within the hotel. We had breakfast there and it was very good! There is an indoor pool that looks very nice even though we did not utilize it. All staff are very welcoming. Clean, uncluttered.

While not terribly new, the Sea Ranch is a well maintained, inviting property right on the beach. Spring for an ocean view room if you possibly can - it feels like the beach is just outside your balcony! Visited in October and it was a bit cool, but still lovely time to visit. Dogs allowed on the beach. Good hot...
