We were there in March and it was a little bit chilly in the evenings in the morning we use the fire pit for both. Evening drinks and coffee in the morning. It would’ve been chilly to sit outside without it !

There is a beautiful paved coastal path from the hotel through the golf course. Only 2-3 miles. May extent further but I’m afraid I don’t know.

This is a 5 star hotel on one of the only beaches in the Bay Area. $30 a day may be "unconscionable" in Toledo, but it's actually quite reasonable for a luxury resort.
